If you have diagnosed a rising damp problem in your property you will have a couple of different treatment solutions available.

Rising Damp Treatment options include methods such as chemical injection and electro-osmotic treatment. Our suggested rising damp solution will be decided on the appropriate treatment for your type of property and your budget.

 

Treating Rising Damp

Prior to starting treatment on the affected rising damp area, the first step is to identify the cause of the rising damp. Without finding and resolving the cause there is a high possibility that any rising damp treatment will fail.

If you’re unsure as to what the rising damp cause may be, we suggest giving SE Damp Solutions a call, our professional damp specialists will be able to diagnose and treat any damp issues you may have, including Rising Damp. Please call us on 01223 640809 to organise a rising damp survey.

Rising Damp Treatment Options

Once we have established the cause of the rising damp problem, there are a few different treatment options available, depending on the property type, age, and budget.

Chemical Injection Treatment:

One of the more common rising damp treatments is called chemical injection. It is a highly reliable form of treatment and is often the quickest and most cost-effective rising damp treatment.

Chemical injection uses water repellent technology to form a barrier through the wall masonry by lining the capillaries with a chemical, preventing any moisture from rising. Holes are drilled into the affected walls (depending on the thickness) and the rising damp chemical injection solution disperses into the wall.

Electro-Osmotic System:

If the standard chemical injection treatment is not suitable for your property, an alternative solution can be to use an Electro-Osmotic System.

Electric Osmotic Systems use a small electronic charge, reversing the process of rising damp by repelling the rising water from the wall and back into the ground, allowing the walls to stay dry. The main benefit here is there are no chemicals being used, drilling on the outside of the property is also kept to a minimum.

WHAT IS RISING DAMP?

‘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.
