Systems & Causes Of Damp
Unwanted dark-stained patches to your walls, cracked plaster and render, peeling wallpaper and rotting wood can all be tell-tale signs that you may be suffering from damp problems. Rising damp is caused by moisture being drawn up into the brickwork from the ground, leaving interior walls looking dark and stained. The effects of rising damp can be seriously damaging to your property.
As well as causing unwanted dark-stained patches on interior walls, other symptoms of rising damp include plaster and paint cracking and peeling, the appearance of white salt patches, as well as the loosening of wall paper, skirting boards and other wooden areas rotting.
Penetrating damp is moisture damage occurring because of unwanted rain water penetrating brickwork, which may be caused by something as simple as a leaking roof, damaged gutter or poorly sealed window frames.
In cold weather, the extra moisture retained in the brickwork will freeze and expand, pushing the bricks apart, damaging the external render and leaving it looking cracked. This will often be accompanied by an ugly dark-stained patch on the interior wall. Other undesired effects of penetrating damp can include increased heat loss in your property, frost damage and moss growth.
