Problems caused by rising damp

It’s important to deal with rising damp as quickly as possible to mitigate the following issues:

  • As rising damp moves through the permeable layers it can impact on the structural integrity of a building by leaching out minerals and by causing timber decay.
  • Rising damp can also support the development of mould, which can have a adverse impact on the health of the building’s residents.
  • Increased heating cost for a house with rising damp, as heat passes more freely between the damp walls.
