Symptoms of rising damp

Posted by Ashvini Vyas on January 18, 2012 (0 Comments)


To maintain the beauty of your home it’s important to be aware of symptoms of rising damp. You must have come across in your house or others the presence of damaged skirting boards and floorboards, crumbling or salt stained plaster along with peeling paint and wallpaper etc. All these are counted as major symptoms of a rising damp. Usually, rising damp is caused due to ground water moving upwards through a wall. Most of the walls allow this insertion of water but can be stopped from causing damages if a barrier known as damp proof course is inducted. They are nothing but a horizontal plastic or slate strip that inserted into the walls of a home. If in case you forget to do this course or become ineffectual then chances may become high that your home walls become prone to rising damp. Make sure that this type of damp may occur if the outside ground level of your home is higher than inserted damp proof course enabling the water to go above it.    

Generally, three major damp come across in our daily life like rising, penetrating, and condensation. If you want to work out properly on damp for long lasting results then first of all you have to identify the type. And if you think that your property may damp, and you cannot spot the cause then must consult with reputed damp specialist. Those who really loves their houses and want to make their houses rising damp free then must be in touch with damp specialist but before that should have knowledge about symptoms of rising damp so that can defend the damages on time.
