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.

The Issues with Damp

Damp is caused by many different factors including the weather, poor insulation, leaking pipes and more. It can also create problems with both your property and wellbeing. Besides the fact it looks unappealing, it can be particularly harmful to your timber and plastering. Having wet or damp plaster will cause your wallpaper to lift and the plaster itself to crumble.

To add to this, damp causes black mould and mildew which can be very damaging to your health. Mildew can spread to your clothes and furnishings, ruining the material and contaminating the air. It has been known to cause both respiratory and skin problems like fever, coughing, eczema and asthma. This is more common in those who are vulnerable, such as babies and the elderly.

Preventing damp from occurring, or having it exterminated sooner rather than later, can help to stop these problems from arising. Here at Aquafoss, we can provide a reputable damp proofing service, as well as treatments to remove rising damp and wet rot. These services are all provided at an affordable cost and completed to the highest of standards.

Damp Proofing

We offer an effective proofing service to customers in and around High Wycombe. This may be particularly beneficial to those converting a basement or cellar into a cosy living space. Many older properties do not have protection from bad weather. Our damp proofing service helps to prevent damp from arising.

Our 40 years’ experience ensures the job will be done to a high standard. We work by placing a waterproof lining around your walls, forming a tank to prevent water from getting in. Although it sounds simple this is a tricky job, and there are certain regulations to abide by when completing this kind of work. Our experienced team always ensure the services we provide are performed legally and safely.
