What is rising damp, and how can it do severe damage to your home or business property? Rising damp is the result of groundwater rising up through capillary action through cracks in masonry and other building material, which results in serious water damage to a building. This could result in decaying timber, flaking and cracking paint, ugly stains, mold, and other eyesores. This occurs when the salts and alkaline materials from the rising damp begin to crystallize, and this causes staining and severe damage to your structure. Professional analysis must be performed in order to differentiate rising damp from conventional water damage resulting from man-made elements. You must determine whether or not your property is potentially receiving damage from rising damp, or if a pipe or other water fixture has burst or is regularly leaking.
If you and your professional have determined that rising damp is affecting your home, there are multiple ways to approach the problem. Commonly, people choose to hire repairmen to determine the source of the rising damp. In humid environments, rising damp is sadly not at all uncommon, but there are many things that can be done to structures in order to prevent rising damp from doing serious damage to a property. Tech-Dry creams can seal the cracks where rising damp is normally able to sneak up into a building, preventing significant aesthetic and structural risk to a building in the process.
