Types of damp we treat Rusting Wall Ties Bournemouth

At Prokil, we have the facilities and experience to treat the following types of damp:

Rising damp

Rising damp can be identified by white marks, tide mark on walls and visible discolouration which is due to mineral salts being transported from the ground. Water from the ground travels through the property’s masonry (typically through porous mortar joints) and has the capability to travel a metre up walls. The leading causes of rising damp can be traced back to a damaged, bridged or missing DPC.

Penetrating damp

Penetrating damp causes many issues like mould, damaged plaster, musty smells, watermarks and damaged timber to name a few. This type of damp is often caused by water leaking through the walls which is due to building defects or structural issues. Penetrating damp has the ability to move around buildings from above or in a lateral fashion.

We also treat damp problems caused by ventilation and condensation issues.
