Damp is one of the most common problems that affects properties, Not only is it damaging to the structure of a building but it can also negatively affect your health. Damp proofing is a process that involves treating the walls of a property to prevent damp and its associated problems. Knowing the cause of the damp is essential to treating it properly so proper diagnosis by a professional is recommended.
What makes damp proofing so important for properties suffering from damp is that it provides a long term solution that will prevent any moisture from entering the interior walls. This is essential because once water starts to get through to the interior spaces of a property then it’s only a matter of time before problems such as wet rot, dry rot and timber decay occur.
There are many obvious signs of damp to look out for including mould, damp patches and flaking walls. You may suspect that your home is suffering from damp if you have noticed one or more of these signs.
