Damp Treatments in Brighton
Damp may appear to be a minor issue but if it is not treated by a trained professional, it can cause problems such as wet rot, dry rot and mould which leads to damage of plaster and paintwork. Damp can be caused by defective rainwater goods, bad building works, poor property maintenance, leaking roofs and lack of or failed damp proofing course.
To the untrained eye, all damp may look the same but there are varying types of damp including condensation, rising damp and penetrating damp. The moment you suspect damp in your property, we suggest you call Prokil for a free damp survey. Our expert surveyors will identify the damp and provide damp removal suggestions in a detailed report.
Types of Damp We Treat
Penetrating damp is usually caused by water seeping through the property’s walls as a result of structural issues or building defects. This type of damp can cause watermarks, musty smells, damaged plaster, mould and may also damage timber. As penetrating damp can move in any direction, damp wall treatment is highly recommended.
Rising damp moves through porous mortar joints and the masonry of your property. The tell-tale signs of rising damp can be visible discolouration as a result of mineral salts, tide marks and white marks on your walls. If a damp proofing course becomes damaged or bridged, it will often result in rising damp.
