What is Rising Damp?
Damp is something no homeowner wants to deal with. More than just an eyesore creating decorative spoiling, it can invite mould into your home and if not rectified could damage the structural integrity of the property.
Rising damp is just one form damp takes. It happens when groundwater rises through the foundation of your home and up into your floors and walls. Typically caused by a breakdown of your existing damp-proof course (DPC), it can spread deeper into your walls and into more rooms if not caught in time, eventually requiring expensive repair work. That’s why it’s so important to get it treated as soon as you spot the warning signs.
