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.
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.
