The cause of rising damp is often a damaged damp proof course, or in some cases, your home may not have a damp proof course at all. A damp proof course is put in place to stop moisture from seeping through lower walls and the floors of your home. Unfortunately, if you don’t have a damp proof course, or if it has become damaged, water will be able to soak into your home, eventually causing damp in your home. It is worth noting that buildings built before 1875 almost certainly won’t have a damp proof course, so it is worthwhile checking if you have one, even if you are not suffering from damp throughout your home.
