DAMP TREATMENT

RISING DAMP


After condensation, rising damp is the second most common form of damp in buildings. Rising damp occurs when water from above or below the ground enters a building through its walls and floors. If untreated, this excess moisture may cause issue's with the building’s structure.

 

Some common signs of rising damp are:

  • decayed skirting boards
  • crumbling or salt contaminated plaster
  • discolouration and staining on the walls or ceilings
  • decayed timber floors and joinery

 

What causes

rising damp?


Most cases of rising damp appear in older properties but can become also occur in buildings of any age.  Usually when the existing damp proof course becomes damaged, is missing altogether or the external ground levels have been raised by driveways, flowers beds etc.  Once this happens the groundwater underneath or next to the building starts to seep into the fabric of its structure, if left untreated potential issues will worsen over time.
