What damp proof membranes can do for you?

Posted by Sachit Patel on June 09, 2011 (0 Comments)

Do not make a mistake of thinking that damp is only a matter of appearance. Granted, it does look ugly, especially if your problem is an extensive one, but you must never forget about the health issues that arise from raising damp. Namely, damp can cause mold which is more than detrimental for the respiratory system and even if it doesn’t cause mold, damp can adversely affect the quality of air in the building. These are all reasons why this issue needs to be addressed as soon and as efficiently as possible and damp proof membranes are definitely among the most efficient solutions to this problem.

The name damp proof membranes pretty much tells the whole story. Namely, these products are physical membranes that stand between the damp-affected areas of the walls or the floor and the new finish that you will put over the membranes. Some damp proof membranes can even be installed externally, thus providing protection of the block wall that hasn’t been mortared properly. However, they are most commonly installed on the interior, as an immediate precursor to the finishing layer.

The array of different damp proof membranes is a wide one and you need to know which type is going to suit you the best, will it be the meshed one or the non-meshed one, made from which materials and so on. However, you can always count on the damp proof membranes to provide you with protection that no other damp proofing solution can.
