Damp Proofing Treatments in Poole
Damp is, in a nutshell, defined as unwanted moisture that appears in the home usually on surfaces such as walls, doors and furniture. Damp can have a hugely detrimental impact on a property that can ruin walls, destroy furniture and upholstery and even weaken the structure of the building itself. So, if you suspect damp may have taken hold or your home is being rapidly overrun, it’s time to act.
Your property may require damp treatment. Our damp specialists can conduct a free damp proof survey to examine the affected areas of your property. The damp survey will determine the type and extent of the damp and its source.
You’ll require damp solutions to protect against penetrating damp if any of the following signs are found during our survey:
- Water damage to plasterwork and paint
- Persistent random damp patches
- Mould growth
- Musty smells
- Damaged timber
As the most exceptional damp proofing Poole has to offer, we will check that your Damp Proof Course is intact, and can also correct the structural issues that are allowing the water to enter your home.
Types of Damp We Treat
There are three types of damp, but it’s easy to mistakenly identify which type you have without a reliable assessment. We can treat the following:
Penetrating damp is usually caused by external factors such as rainwater and snow and is a result of poor building maintenance or defective building design. Leaking rooftops, blown window seals and defective pointing are just some examples of issues that can lead to penetrating damp. If the ground level outside is higher than your DPC or floor level, this can also lead to penetrating damp.
Unlike penetrating damp, rising damp is the result of water that rises from ground level. Without an adequate DPC protection, this water is drawn through the masonry where it crystallises forming mineral salts. These salts are what cause the damage leading to discolouration of paint and plasterwork. It is important to implement a rising damp treatment before the problem develops further.
Different to rising and penetrating damp, internal damp is caused due to the living conditions of the occupants within a property. Common symptons include condensation forming on walls and windows, mould growth and a musty smell.
