All properties with suspended timber floors at ground level require an adequate flow of air beneath the timbers at sub-floor level. If the air bricks are blocked or closed this will reduce the ventilation and the risk of serious rot and damp will be increased.
Air bricks should never be blocked or closed and it is recommended that all air bricks are inspected and cleaned on an annual basis.
Make sure that you employ the advice of a Chartered Surveyor before making any major alterations to your property. You can get quotes for surveyors here.

Friendly and experienced surveyor, the report was completed within 4 working days. Saved us a big headache as we would have ended up buying a structurally defective property
