Types of Damp

Experiencing damp in a property is extremely common and there are several different types of damp which can cause this issue. The main types include:

  • Rising Damp
  • Penetrating Damp
  • Construction Damp
  • Condensation Dampness

Understanding the differences between these can help you to identify them and eradicate damp before they cause lots of problems. Rising damp occurs when moisture from the ground enters masonry and works its way up to around a height of a metre. In contrast, penetrating damp happens when water penetrates fabric from outside a building towards the inside. This could be as a result of a leaking downpipe or something similar. Construction damp emerges as a result of how the property was designed and condensation dampness occurs when a building cannot handle the amount of water vapour it is experiencing.

Damp Proofing Walls

Whether in a home or business property, preventing damp from causing further damage is important. Eradicating existing damp can be a difficult challenge to complete by yourself, which is why using a team like the one at Aquafoss can help you dramatically. With increasing rainfall each year in the UK, moisture levels are continuing to grow and cause problems with damp. Checking your home regularly ensures that if damp has developed it is removed before it causes significant damage.

Most repair of damp tends to be in the form of damp proofing which is added to interior walls to avoid any further damage. Once the source of a problem has been found, then the moisture can be blocked from entering a property. Keeping on top of all damp problems is important and if you notice any, you should contact an appropriate professional to help.
