Rising damp is a common problem that many households face. It can cause walls to become discolored and damaged, as well as create an environment where mold and mildew can thrive.

COMMON SIGNS OF RISING DAMP

Rising damp is a serious problem that can affect the structural integrity of your home. It’s important to be able to identify the signs of rising damp so that you can take steps to treat it. Here are some common signs of rising damp:

  • A musty smell in your home
  • Discoloration or staining on walls
  • peeling paint or wallpaper
  • Crumbling plaster
  • Damp patches on walls or floors
  • Salt deposits on walls or floors
  • Efflorescence (white powder) on walls

TREATING RISING DAMP

Rising damp is a very common problem in older buildings, and can be extremely difficult to treat. There are a number of different ways to identify rising damp, but the most common is by looking for damp patches on walls, or by feeling for dampness at the bottom of walls.

Once you have identified that you have rising damp, there are a number of different ways to treat it. The most common way is to inject a chemical Damp Proof Course (DPC) into the wall, which will stop the damp from rising any further. However, this is not always 100% effective, and may need to be repeated every few years.

Another treatment option is to install an electric Damp Proof Membrane (DPM), which will create an electrical current that will stop the damp from rising. This option is usually more expensive than injecting a DPC, but it is also more permanent.

If you have rising damp in your home, it is important to get it treated as soon as possible, as it can cause serious damage to your property if left untreated.
