Managing Rising Damp

Rising Damp is one of the many different types of damp that can cause damage in your home. Knowing how to identify the right type is the first step. Let's take a look at rising damp and how you can fix it.

Damp can really cause damage in your home. It is not only unsightly but it can lead to a significant damage. Mould is unhealthy and should be removed from the home as soon as possible.

There are different types of damp that may exist in your home. Penetrating damp can go through a wall from the outside. Condensation is usually caused when moisture escapes against colder surfaces.

Then you should also be aware of rising damp. This usually exists against walls on the ground.

It can affect all types of buildings, especially older properties. This is because the damp proofing treatment may not be so effective anymore in old houses. There are many signs of rising damp, including stains and a wet skirting. You may also notice that your stonework is damp.

The first thing you should do is determine the cause of the moisture. Once that has been fixed, you can repair the damage that the mould has caused. Then you should get a professional team to damp proof your entire home.

This will help to prevent any further damage caused by mould. Ongoing maintenance and regular inspections are important to help prevent damp in your home.
