At CP Construction Solutions, we can rid your home of rising damp and with our top tips, you can protect your home against damp in the future.
Check out our last article on identifying the type of damp you have in your home, to ensure that you find the best solution for the damp in your home.
Identify the Cause of the Rising Damp
Rising damp is generally caused by a lack of a damp proof course in your home, or a damaged damp proof course. A damp proof course may have been installed incorrectly, or it may have become faulty due to old age. Without an adequate damp proof course, water is able to penetrate the walls and floors of your home, causing rising damp.
Rising damp may also appear if there is something on the exterior walls of your home which breaches your sufficient damp proof course, allowing water to penetrate through the walls of your home. Whatever may be causing the damp in your home, it is important that it is correctly identified and dealt with effectively. A member of our skilled team at CP Construction Solutions can identify the source of rising damp in your home, ensuring that we can implement the best solution to prevent rising damp in the future.
Resolving the Problem
Once the source of the damp has been identified, the most appropriate solution can be implemented. In cases where the damp proof course is insufficient, it will require replacing in order to rid your home of damp. Where a damp proof course has not been installed in the first place, a damp proof course must be installed in your home to prevent any structural damage to your property. At CP Construction Solutions we are fully qualified to fix and install a damp proof course in your home, protecting your home against any further rising damp.
If your sufficient damp proof course has been breached, the team at CP Construction can identify and resolve the source of the breach. We will ensure that the source of the breach is removed or repositioned to protect your home from further damage caused by rising damp.
Clearing Away Any Damage
Following the resolution of the source of the damp in your home, you should consider removing and repairing the areas of your home damaged by the damp. This may involve replacing the plaster, repairing the structure of your home, or just a simple lick of paint. The amount of work required will hugely depend on the severity of the damp in your home. Fortunately, the team at CP Construction Solutions can get your home looking good as new, ensuring that the damp will not return to your home.
