Most families yearn for extra space as an inbuilt requirement in today’s modern world, a lot of homeowners are utilising the space they already have, by converting dingy cellars and basements into bright and cosy additional rooms instead.

What Is Rising Damp?

Understanding what this issue is and how to spot it in your home can help to prevent long-term damage from occurring. Affecting the stability and overall structure of a property, rising damp can cause major problems. Although it is one of the rarer forms of damp it is still just as important to be able to recognise it.

Rising damp usually happens when external moisture from the ground rises up through the walls of a property, resulting in damage. Areas around this including the joists, floor boards, skirting, and any plasterwork become affected because they are porous and susceptible to water. If left untreated, this can result in wet rot which will impact the structural integrity of a building.

The first signs that you notice when it comes to rising damp are damp or wet walls, skirting boards, or other forms of stonework. Other signs worth noting are if plaster or paint is starting to loosen, stains have appeared, and the emergence of ‘salts’.

Health Risks And Damp

If damp is left untreated, then it can result in numerous health risks. The NHS warns that if you have damp or mould in your home you are more likely to experience a respiratory problem such as infection, allergies or asthma. There is also a chance that your immune system could be impacted as a result of damp. Those at most risk include:

  • The elderly
  • Babies and children
  • Those with existing skin problems (eg. Eczema)
  • Those with existing respiratory problems (eg. Allergies and Asthma)
  • Those with a weakened immune system

It is recommended that if you are considered as being at risk, you should stay away from damp and mould.

It affects your health as a result of the allergens that are released from the damp or mould, leaving you to react in some way to this. Some people experience sneezing, red eyes, a runny nose, and skin rash. On top of this, there is a chance that an asthma attack will be triggered by the substance.
