Rising Damp Treatment Services

Are you looking for damp proofing professionals for rising damp in your home?

Rising damp is one of the most serious yet misunderstood damp problems that affects properties across the UK.

Treating true cases of rising damp will often involve installing a remedial damp proof course, and the earlier this can be performed the more likely you are to avoid creating an unpleasant and damp environment in your home. Also, if left to accumulate, the excess moisture content in the wall can reach the timber resulting in wet or dry rot. 

How to identify Rising Damp

Understanding what rising damp looks like, and how it differs from a penetrating damp problem or dampness caused by condensation is not always easy if you are not trained in what to look for.

Our surveyors come not only with the high-class training but also the highest standard certification which helps in analysing and identifying rising damp in your home.

Penetrating Damp treatment in Andover

There are several signs that you may have a penetrating damp problem in your home:

  1. Water marks or stains on walls, ceilings, or floors
  2. Peeling or flaking paint or wallpaper
  3. Musty or mouldy odours
  4. Rotting or crumbling wood
  5. Damp or humid patches on walls or floors
 

If you notice any of these signs in your home, it is possible that you have a penetrating damp problem. It is important to address this issue as soon as possible, as penetrating damp can cause structural damage to your home and can also have negative health effects if left unchecked.

Make Your Property damp-free!

Condensation Control & Treatment

Affecting an estimated one in five UK properties, condensation is perhaps the most common cause of damp problems in our homes. Our guide to stopping condensation and preventing associated problems like damp, peeling decorations, unhealthy living conditions and black mould growth will explain what condensation is, the causes, and how to deal with problems in your home

If your home suffers from persistent and resilient condensation issues, contact our condensation specialists on 0300 373 7251.

There are several ways to identify condensation:

  1. Look for water droplets: If you see tiny droplets of water on surfaces like windows, walls, or pipes, it is likely due to condensation.

  2. Feel for moisture: If a surface feels damp or humid, it may be due to condensation.

  3. Look for mould: If you see mould growing on a surface, it could be a sign of condensation, as mould requires moisture to grow.

  4. Check the temperature: Condensation is more likely to occur on colder surfaces, so if you notice condensation on a surface that is significantly cooler than the surrounding air, it is likely due to the process of condensation.

  5. Look for other indicators: Other signs of condensation can include the formation of fog or mist, or the dripping of water from surfaces.

“Advanced Damp were highly professional in the damp treatment service they provided us. We found Sam’s very clear explanation of the treatment, steps for follow-up, and advice on another possible area of damp in the house all very helpful. He was on time, and committed to tidying up as part of the service.

We really appreciated Sam’s immediate response to the request we placed on the website, and the fact that he could fit us in so quickly. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these services.”

“Super-prompt, efficient, courteous and tidy service from Gary and his son Ben. I had lots of concerns about getting the damp treatment to fit in with some improvement work we had planned and some unplanned insurance work, and their practical, helpful approach and detailed advice has taken a huge weight off my mind.

They really tailored what they did to what we needed, and will be doing some more work for us to fit in with the schedule we have to work to. I’d have no hesitation in recommending them.”

F.A.Q

Damp within homes is a very common issue. A high amount of damp caused in properties is due to poor maintenance, a lack of adequate ventilation and often in older properties, high ground levels can result in the lack of an effective damp proof course.

Modern houses often have bad ventilation and mixed with poor use of heating can result in condensation problems.

Some properties may have been built without a DPC or those that have been built with one, may find this is no longer working to its full capacity because of changes in ground levels, damage from building renovations or frequently with buildings built on sloping site and hills, the older damp proofing measures are no longer working well enough to meet our modern day standards.

A DPC is a ‘Damp Proof Course’ which is a barrier inserted through the bottom of the wall to prevent water rising from the soil in to the wall. Older properties were not normally built with one, however the were introduced generally from around 1875.

Older Damp proof courses were usually built from slate however in construction nowadays they are made from plastic. When a new DPC is installed as a remedial measure, this is usually installed by making holes into the walls and injecting a waterproof liquid or high strength chemical cream which forms the new damp proof course by creating a strong protection barrier within your wall.

Major issues with damp walls is that timbers in contact with the walls which are susceptible to decay. When damp gets bad, certain levels of dampness may also ruin your decorations and damage plaster work.

The majority of properties are very likely to have had a form of damp treatment carried out previously, but this may no longer be sufficient to meet our modern day standards and often alterations carried out during renovations will damage existing damp proof courses and / or remove previous waterproofing.

The addition of new driveways and patios etc often bridges old damp proof courses as ground levels are raised.

Many basements and cellars are now being upgraded into usable space where previously these rooms may have been coal stores or left empty.

If you are unsure whether or not your property has adequate damp proofing systems installed book a survey here.

The different types of damp represent themselves in different ways but have some common indicators include:

  • Damp or musty smell
  • Excessive condensation on windows
  • Tide marks on the wall
  • Peeling wallpaper or paint
  • Discoloured or dark patches on the floors, wall, & ceilings
  • Mould or mildew growth

Diagnosing damp by yourself can become expensive, as the wrong diagnoses and treatment methods can cause structural damage to the property. The best way to get rid of damps begins with the actual cause of the damp and finding the source of damp. So, if that very step is misdiagnosed, you are likely to end up with more losses. 

At Advanced Damp, we have surveyors with decades of experience that will help your find the source, cause, and most effective treatment for your damp problems. So, we encourage getting in touch with a specialist damp proofing company to get the suggestions.
