Comment lutter contre l'humidité dans un garage

How to fight against moisture and humidity in a garage

Comment lutter contre l'humidité dans un garage

Do you have a waterproofing or humidity problem in your garage ? First, if you are a tenant, we recommend that you install a moisture absorber. Count only about twenty euros to absorb some of the moisture and protect your boxes.

Moisture is in the walls

We note on the real estate market that garages built in the 60s to 80s are generally semi underground. At the time, builders did not systematically apply a layer of tarred plaster to protect walls in contact with soil.

First, you must remove dust and then wash the walls with bleach to remove mold. Then use expansive foam to fill any holes and cracks in the walls. We recommend that you drill a hole in the wall to add a ventilation grid communicating with the outside to encourage airflow. Apply a first thick coat (about 2 mm) of waterproofing plaster to cover the humidity of the blocks. Allow to dry for 24 hours before applying a second coat on the wall.

In the event of a major storm, water can enter your garage and cause residual moisture. One solution to this problem is to use an adhesive sealing strip around the garage door.

Experience with a delinquent bad payer

locataire mauvais payeur

We share with you Christopher’s bad experience with a high-flying bad tenant. This article is also an opportunity to give you tips and advice to help you manage this kind of situation.

To rent a parking space or a garage, an owner is ready to do anything thinking only about profitability. It’s human to want to rent all your spaces at all costs to reassure yourself. But when a badly paying tenant arrives in your environment you have to be firm and very reactive to get out without too much damage. All landlord investors know that there are more and more “bad payers” on the market. This term broadly defines any tenant who will make you suffer from rent payment problems (late payment, non-payment, degradation, illegal occupation, etc…).

💡 Did you know that ?

Speed should not be confused with haste, especially when there is money at stake.

Unfortunately, a wise member of our club got screwed. By what we can define as an expert in bad payment or even an expert living in the hooks of the French society ; knowing many methods to deceive people… Any experience, good or bad, is good to take in order to move forward and learn from one’s mistakes. It seemed essential to us to tell you about this extreme case.
