Rising Damp Problems

Rising Damp Health Problems

If rising damp is not properly dealt with or fixed at the time of discovery, it can go from being a minor eye-sore to seriously harming the health of residents living in the property.

Residents exposed to rising damp environments can suffer a host of respiratory sicknesses, from asthma to lung infections, being particularly dangerous for babies, children or for those who already suffer from air-bound allergies or asthma.


Rising Damp Property Damages

Besides the damages to personal health that rising damp can cause, it is also extremely damaging to the properties structure. Many damp conditions affect the timbers, which in older properties can form up to 75% of the structure, an integral part of the building.

While minor mould patches or a little moisture in the home might not seem like a big issue, damp is a problem that can grow behind the scenes and lead to other, more damaging, conditions including wood rot.


‘Rrising damp’ describes the movement of moisture from the ground upwards through the structure of the property’s walls, similar to water being absorbed by a sponge. Any property unprotected by a rising damp barrier is vulnerable to rising damp.
