Damp proof your property

Damp proofing treatments prevent moisture from getting into your building and causing damage. Without this protection, dampness can lead to issues like stained walls and structural harm. Our services offer effective solutions to keep your property safe from these problems.

What Are the Causes of Damp?

Dampness is a frequent issue in households, often resulting in mould, structural harm, poor air quality, musty odours, and respiratory issues. Grasping the origins of damp is crucial for its proper prevention and management. Moreover, if your current damp proofing measures aren’t performing optimally, our local experts can swiftly conduct thorough damp surveys in every room of your home.

There are two main categories of dampness:

  • Penetrating Damp: This type of damp occurs when water ingress (entry) from outside the building occurs.
  • Condensation Damp: This type of damp arises from excess moisture in the air inside the property.

Here’s a closer look at the different causes of damp:

Penetrating Damp:

  1. Leaks: Water coming in through leaking pipes, roofs, gutters, or walls is a common cause of damp.

  2. Rising Damp: Moisture moving up from the ground into the walls, especially in older buildings without a damp-proof course (DPC) or where the DPC isn’t working properly.

  3. Bridged DPC: A damp-proof course (DPC) stops rising moisture. But if materials like soil touch the wall, they can stop the DPC from working properly.

  4. Building Faults: Cracks in walls, gaps around windows and doors, and poor pointing can let water in, leading to damp issues.

Condensation Damp:

  1. Poor Ventilation: When homes don’t have enough ventilation, moisture gets trapped inside. This leads to condensation on cold surfaces like walls and windows, which can cause dampness and mould. Activities such as showering, cooking, and drying clothes indoors make indoor moisture levels higher.

  2. Lifestyle Factors: Hanging wet clothes to dry indoors, forgetting to use extractor fans in kitchens and bathrooms, and having too many people in a property can all add to condensation problems.

  3. Lack of Heating: Cold walls are more likely to attract condensation. Keeping a low level of heat throughout winter helps reduce the risk of condensation buildup.
