Rising damp treatment
Rising damp is potentially an issue that can affect all buildings. Practically all buildings are surrounded by natural moisture that is trying to get into the dry structure of the building.
What is rising damp
Wondering what is rising damp? Dont worry...you are not the only one trying to figure out what is rising damp. In short, rising damp in buildings occurs when water from the ground rises up through the bricks and mortar of a building by capillary action - rising through fine cracks in the masonry.
Identifying rising damp
The one thing to remember when identifying rising damp is that there are many forms of damp that can affect a property and different forms of damp proofing to help treat the particular damp problem.
Not a rising damp issue
Damp and damp proofing is by far, the most frequent problem encountered in the home. Each year, the average home in Scotland copes with around 15,000 gallons of rain water, so it is no surprise that damp proofing can become a big problem for many.
Condensation is an extremely underestimated cause of damage to our homes and is almost certainly the most common form of dampness within a building. It is because of this that enquiries regarding condensation treatment are on the rise.
