What Are The Causes Of Damp In A Property?

Are you having difficulty with damp in your London basement? Dampness is usually a telltale sign of a more critical underlying problem. Therefore, identifying the source of the dampness in your property is the initial step in resolving it. If you observe moist patches or other signs of dampness on the inside or outside of your residence, it could be caused by one of the following: Rain seeps through the cracks in the brickwork.


Act promptly should you spot wetness in your home. Else, both the tenants and the structure could suffer severe problems. Not damp-proofing can lead to serious structural harm to a building’s structure and weaken structural integrity if not sorted out quickly, as well as the visual uneasiness it brings.

What Is Damp Proofing And How Does It Work?

The term ‘damp proofing’ encompasses a broader process of maintaining a property through damp avoidance services.

Damp Proofing FAQ

What does a damp proofing survey specialist do?

You require an expert in damp to pinpoint the origin of the damp issue and create the most reasonable, efficient plan for repairs. A qualified and knowledgeable Surveyor can precisely diagnose your property’s damp predicament.

What does damp proofing involve?

Integral damp proofing involves adding water-proofers to the concrete mix, creating a moisture-resistant barrier that prevents moisture from entering the inner living spaces of walls, floors and the structure.

How long does damp proofing last?

Typically, a physical damp proof course can last up to 25 years, however, poor installation or deterioration can render it ineffective. If this is the case, rising damp may occur.

What is the difference between rising damp and penetrating damp?

The most common distinction between rising and penetrative damp is the height at which it manifests. Rising damp typically arises up to one metre from the ground, while penetrating damp can appear anywhere.

What happens if you don’t treat rising damp?

Left untreated, rising damp can wreak havoc on the structure of your property. The cost of damp-proofing is a fraction of what it’d cost to repair or replace your home’s interior and exterior fabric. Not only can rising damp ruin decoration and plaster, it can also rot the timber.

Can rising damp cause structural damage?

Rising damp can be damaging to your internal walls, as well as to timber and masonry structures. Additionally, it can create an environment for mould, which can lead to health issues for those living in the property.

Is penetrating damp serious?

Most cases of damp, left untended, can lead to issues for the structure and severe damage to the fabric of your home. Neglected penetrating damp can cause disintegration of the property, including walls, floors, ceilings and even rot in timbers.

Should you treat wet rot?

If you discover wet rot in a part of your dwelling which might weaken its structural reliability, we strongly advise professional treatment.

Can dry rot come back?

Identifying the underlying cause of damp in your home is the most effective way to prevent the fungus from recurring. Dry rot can only establish itself in areas with a humidity level of 20% or higher. Once the moisture content drops, the dry rot spores become inactive. To begin with, it is necessary to recognize the source of the dampness.
