A Complete Guide to Rising Damp and its Treatment


 
Business,Construction
Firstly, it is essential to consider the cause resulting in the rising damp before considering any kind of treatment for the rising damp. It might not be the case that to rectify the issue you need to consider a course of rising damp treatment. Sometimes, the case may be as simple as like there was rising damp due to a flower pot placed on your roof and you just need to remove it from the place to allow it to dry and opt for mould removal. But most of the time, there is a need of professional hand for the treatment of rising damp.

What is Rising Damp?

Affecting the walls of buildings rising damp is a relatively rare form of damp. When by capillary action the moisture from the ground travels up through the walls, this occurs. This means that like a series of straws through tiny tubes in the bricks groundwater is effectively sucked up. This salt contained in the water also gets travelled up through the wall.

You get other porous building materials such as skirting, the floorboard timber, joists, and plasterwork around the affected wall. Evidence of wet rot may be found in the timber as the groundwater will be absorbed by these materials easily. Improper roof ventilation systems also result in this.

Generally, by the damage, it causes to the internal walls of a building the rising damp is first noticed. Any wallpaper tends to loosen and paint and plaster can deteriorate. At the point where the groundwater has reached in the form of a tide mark a visible stain often appears on the wall. On the internal surface, you may also see salts blooming. Externally, on the walls, white salt stains may appear and mortar may crumble.

Rising damp is one of most the controversial types of damp and is most talked about. You are in the right place if ever if you think you might have an issue with rising damp as there are definite chances.

Why Rising Damp Occurs?

To prevent water from rising up in this way, most buildings at the lower level of the wall have some form of barrier installed. It is known as a damp proof course (DPC). Depending on the period the property was built these can be made of water-resistant, non-absorbent materials such as plastic, slate, and bitumen.

Sometimes, over time these physical DPCs may fail; they may not exist at all in older houses. To prevent the water from travelling up your wall there is nothing if there is evidence that it has failed then or you don’t have a DPC.

Rising damp treatment by Professionals

A rising damp survey from a professionally qualified rising damp specialist must be done if you have any doubt about the presence of rising damp within your property. They will be able to verify, identify and conclude whether or not you have any problem.

In different rising damp treatment companies, at identifying and treating rising damp there are fully experienced and qualified surveyors available. For your rising damp problem, these experts will arrange for a suitable solution.

If it is concluded after the survey of a rising damp that you do have a rising damp issue, a rising damp solution that best fits your property will be suggested by the professionals.
