The last thing that you will want to find in your home is damp. Damp can be troublesome and in some forms is difficult to treat. Here at Six Star Group we are damp cure specialists and we can work with penetrating damp and condensation as well as rising damp.
Rising damp is when moisture enters and stays in the fabric of the building. Absorbed by the walls and floors, waters can slowly cause damage to your property that can be costly to repair. Ground water rising up through your walls often contains groundwater salts that will eventually contaminate the decoration within your home as well as the building materials. These will keep showing through any gypsum-based plastering as effervescent salts – no matter how many times you paint over them.
Rising damp is mainly caused when the damp proof course fails or, more likely, when it has been bridged. Without this protective barrier, the water that naturally occurs in the ground can travel up the wall in your property. Think about how it would be soaked into a piece of tissue…
It can be difficult to be sure which type of damp is affecting your home. Here are some of the biggest signs that you may have a rising damp problem:
Ascertaining whether or not you have rising damp in your home can be tricky. Here at Six Star Group, we are able to send out a rising damp specialist surveyor with professional equipment who can check your property and confirm which type of damp there is.
Once the damp problem is identified we can begin our rising damp cure treatment. As an expert rising damp treatment company, we know exactly what needs to happen to ensure that your rising damp has minimum chance to damage your walls and that it can be treated effectively.
The best approach to take is to make sure your walls and floors are protected against external moisture sources. This could mean rectifying the problem and using tanking membranes or a tanking slurry on the walls, or it could mean and injecting a new damp proof course or laying a new damp proof floor membrane.
