Some dampness, especially condensation can appear suddenly and result in significant mould, often within cupboards and behind furniture. This type of dampness is often caused by poor heating and ventilation. We have a range of solutions for this problem.
Rising damp is often only detected when a property is ‘surveyed’ perhaps during a sale or purchase, and may not be visually dramatic, however left un-treated can cause significant damp problems such as wet or dry rot, to floors and joinery etc, especially if the problem has been present for some time and if the floor voids have not been well ventilated with sufficient air bricks.
Treatment of rising damp typically involves removal of the skirting boards and internal plaster, following which a new damp proof course is installed and the walls replastered using a waterproof specialist plaster.
Penetrating damp due to leaking gutters and downpipes may have been left unrepaired for many years and can cause plaster to fail and rot to occur. Where such dampness occurs inspection of the extent of the problem and the condition of the adjacent timbers is recommended.
