Damp is most commonly found in older buildings where the original damp proofing has either failed or has been incorrectly installed. Left untreated it is not only unsightly, but it can seriously damage your property. At Dampwise Medway, we understand how worrying it can be if you discover damp in your property and we know exactly what to do to remedy the situation quickly and effectively.
What is damp?
Damp is moisture that rises up through brickwork and mortar.
Masonry contains minerals and salts that are left on the surface of the wall causing causing staining and damp patches.
These patches on the wall draw moisture from the atmosphere, creating a ‘damp’ feeling to the walls and the room in general.
What causes damp?
The most common cause of damp is the failure of the building’s damp proofing or the ‘damp course’. This can be caused by simple ageing, damage caused by new building work to the property or construction around the outside of the building.
What should I look for?
There are some tell-tale indicators of rising damp that include:
- A damp, ‘musty’ smell when entering a room
- Peeling wallpaper or paint, especially at floor level
- A ‘tidemark’ on the wall above skirting boards
- A damp, clammy wall surface
- Salts emerging from the wall surface
What should I do?
If left untreated, damp can cause serious structural damage to your property. So it is important to call Dampwise Medway as soon as you think you might have a problem. We will be able to assess your situation and most importantly, provide the right action to remedy the situation. The installation of a new chemical damp proof course to the affected walls will rectify the damp problem and most importantly it’s guaranteed for 20 years.
