Damp-proof Course Injection
Rising damp is caused from moisture rising up from the ground using capillary action. If you are suffering from dampness in your home or property please have the area inspected by a specialist damp surveyor. The surveyor will diagnose the dampness correctly and provide you with environmentally friendly recommendation to fix the damp problem. Many building don’t require a new damp-proof course injection.
Penetrating damp is not rising damp. Penetrating is caused from moisture penetrating through a material such as your outside wall. If left for a long period of time the moisture can cause internal problem and structural damage. Penetrating damp is most commonly caused from defective rainwater goods as the rain will start to wash down the wall, penetrating through.
Condensation is caused from many things such as, washing clothes, drying clothes, taking a shower, cooking food and also breathing. The most common form of dampness in buildings is condensation. Condensation comes in many forms such as surface moisture and most commonly black mould growth. The mould growth is usually found behind furniture where there isn’t a flow of air to dry the surface moisture.
