Damp proof your property

Damp proofing methods are treatments that stop damp rising or passing through the building structure and affecting the internal fabric. Your walls can give off salt movement and discolouration due to damp patches. If the walls are missing damp proof course (DPC) or dampness is not treated in time, it could cause penetrating dampness, wet rot, mould or dry rot and can cause significant damage to your property. You’re sure to receive a highly efficient service when you choose us.

What Are the Causes of Damp?

Damp is a common problem in homes, and it can lead to a variety of issues, including mould, structural damage, reduced air quality, musty smells and respiratory problems. Understanding the causes of damp is essential to effectively preventing and treating it. As well as this, you may have an existing damp proof course or damp proofing system that isn’t working as effectively as it should be. To begin with our local damp proofing specialists can conduct damp surveys in each room of your house in a timely manner.

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:

  • Leaks: Leaking pipes, roofs, gutters, or walls can all allow water to enter the building, leading to damp problems.
  • Rising Damp: Rising damp occurs when moisture from the ground rises through the foundations and into the walls. This can be a problem in older properties that lack a damp-proof course (DPC) or where the DPC has bridged.
  • Bridged DPC: A DPC is a barrier that prevents moisture from rising from the ground into the walls. If the DPC is bridged by materials such as soil touching the wall, it can no longer function effectively.
  • Building Faults: Cracks in walls, gaps around windows and doors, and defective pointing can all allow water to ingress and cause damp.

Condensation Damp:

  • Poor Ventilation: Homes without quality ventilation trap moisture in the air, which can condense on cold surfaces like walls and windows, leading to damp and mould growth. Activities like showering, cooking, and drying clothes all contribute to indoor moisture levels.
  • Lifestyle Factors: Drying clothes indoors, not using extractor fans in kitchens and bathrooms, and having a large number of occupants in a property can all contribute to condensation problems.
  • Lack of Heating: Cold walls are more prone to condensation. Maintaining a constant low level of heat throughout winter helps reduce the risk of condensation.
