We can solve your Damp problems.
Dampness within properties is one of the most important maintenance problems that affect buildings and there are 3 main causes: condensation, rising damp, and penetrating damp.
As well as the damp smell, mould growth and deterioration of wall plaster and decorations, dampness can actually cause serious damage to the structure of the property.
Rising damp is caused by an absence or breakdown of the damp proof course to the base of the walls. It usually introduces groundwater salts into the wall structure with consequent damage. The most effective remedy is the introduction of a new chemical damp proof course together with local specialist replastering.
Penetrating damp is usually caused by rainwater tentering the wall structure due to external defects. There are many different reasons and ways that dampness can penetrate the structure of buildings, including plumbing or drainage leaks and these MUST be fixed urgently. Delays can allow extensive damage to the property including the growth of fungal decay (dry rot and wet rot) to structural and joinery timbers.
Condensation is the main cause of dampness in the UK and is due to excessive humidity within the property.
