Types of Damp Problems

When it comes to damp, there are many problems to be aware of. Let's look at some of the most common types of damp problems at your home.

Damp is never easy to deal with. It can cause damage to your home and also cause your home to lose value. It doesn't look good against your walls, which is why you should prevent damp were possible. Once the damp is present you should effectively remove it and damp proof your entire home.

There are different types of damp problems. This includes:

  • Rising damp
  • Condensation
  • Penetrating damp

Some damp is caused due to leaks or ineffective pipework. This is why your plumbing system should always be kept intact and well maintained.

If you notice localised damper on your walls, it is likely due to a pipe leak. The first thing you should do is to determine the source of the moisture. From there you can fix the problem and then remove the damp. When all is done, you should complete the damp proofing of your home. This service should preferably be done by an experienced team for best results.

Preventing damp can be accomplished with regular maintenance. Be sure to check all your pipe work and fix any possible leaks. This should be done at least once a year. If you detect a leak or excessive moisture early on, you can fix it before it becomes a problem.
