Damp has many ways to enter a building but we have various methods and technologies to thwart its progress. There is not just one solution for damp as it has many different causes within homes and businesses, such as rising damp, penetrating damp or through bad ventilation leading to condensation problems.

If damp is left untreated, it can cause serious health implications for you and your family. Mould, wet rot and dry rot can all release black or green spores into the atmosphere which can be harmful when inhaled. particularly to those with asthma. Asthma can be provoked by the presence of increased moisture and condensation characteristic of damp problems.

How to spot rising damp early:

A tidemark or staining of walls above the skirting boards to three-foot high Salt on wall Plasterwork or paint falling off Damp patches that come and go Black Mould on the Walls A cold or damp wall​ ​ If you spot any of these signs you should call Damp2Dry immediately as if the damp is left unchecked it could lead to huge problems within your walls and impact your health.

The different types of damp can all be prevented by a course of damp proofing.

If your property does not have a damp proofing course (DPC) or the damp proofing cause is faulty, dampness will be able to rise through the ground into your walls. This is called water ingress which is a major cause of damp within a property. Water ingress can lead to severe issues such as wet rot. Water ingress is not like rising damp, it is a form of penetrating damp which tends to be localised in one area, so once the source of the water ingress is removed it should solve the problem.
