Walls that are damp generally signify high moisture levels within a building’s structure. Rising damp is one of the issues you may experience with respect to your property’s walls.
Groundwater penetrates a structure through capillary action, known as ‘rising damp’. Other forms of water entering or affecting the building can travel in different ways, but are not classed as rising damp. A chemical Damp Proof Course (DPC) is needed to treat this issue.
Rising damp is a widespread issue in many buildings and can be easily misdiagnosed. To ensure the problem is identified and remedied in the long-term, a specialist firm such as Brighton Damp Treatments should carry out an investigation and treatment.
Humidity in many areas, particularly bathrooms, kitchens, toilets and bedrooms is often caused by condensation. This happens when warm moist air meets cold surfaces resulting in water collecting on the walls.
It’s also worth noting that the issue may arise from a distance from where the moisture originates. For example, water vapour generated in a kitchen or bathroom could spread throughout an entire home and settle on colder bedroom walls as condensation. This is especially true during cooler months when there is more humidity present in the air. It is noteworthy that Black Mould can only grow in pure water, such as condensation. Therefore, it does not indicate rising damp.
Penetrating damp can be one of the most damaging issues you may face at home. Commonly referred to as rain penetration, it is water that enters your house from outside sources. Our experienced damp-proofing team will identify and address the problem with cost-effective methods.
Internal dampness can arise from a number of causes, including broken or absent mortar joints in exterior walls, degraded stone window sills, inadequate sealing around doors and windows, and inadequately maintained wooden doors and windows.
A little plumbing leak can cause a large, noticeable damp patch; the water may be trickling out in small amounts, but it is usually consistent and concentrated in one area. The spot absorbs more moisture than it can release because of the strong, persistent humidity and this extra seeps into adjacent areas.
If you’ve spotted a damp patch in your house or garden, it might be caused by faulty guttering. When gutters are blocked with dirt and grime, they can cause moisture to accumulate.
In wet and windy conditions, inspect your roof for damp patches on the ceiling – these can be caused by a leak or condensation. Additionally, broken slates/tiles and any debris on the ground as well as daylight visible in lofts could indicate an issue with the roof.
Monitor your water bill to detect potential leaks. If it’s unusually high or you find yourself constantly refilling the tank, then there may be a leak.
When your home’s interior walls become moist, this creates the ideal environment for damp mould spores – the most hazardous type of spore. Certain varieties of damp mould can be life-threatening and are present in a shocking number of homes throughout Britain.
Existing dampness in a property has many drawbacks which can damage the structure and harm the health of those living there. If not treated, mould will spread and cause harm to the building’s structure. Medical professionals advise that it is hazardous to breathe air contaminated with mould spores as this may lead to respiratory problems; these risks are increased for people already suffering from breathing disorders.
Moisture can put a building’s structural integrity in jeopardy. Mortar can weaken and crumble, leaving salt stains on the walls. Corrosion of steel and iron fasteners would further weaken the structure, potentially leading to plaster or mortar falling off an infected wall in extreme cases. Additionally, high levels of humidity promote wood fungus growth which leads to health issues and “sick building syndrome”. It also accelerates the deterioration of plaster, paint and wallpaper stripping.

Investigating the source of dampness in walls is the first step to take. A thorough check of both inside and outside your home must be made to determine where moisture originates. It can be difficult to identify what needs looking for or which internal damp-proofing techniques and materials should be used if you don’t spot the cause.
At Brighton Damp Treatments, we offer a variety of damp-proofing solutions, all of which come with their own set of advantages. We strive to keep your building free from any form of moisture.
A DPC helps to control rising damp by stopping the capillary action’s moisture from damaging walls.
A damp proof membrane (DPM) is a tool for preventing moisture from entering a structure. It does this by placing a polyethene film beneath concrete to regulate humidity. This coating shields against water and rain, as well as containing cement like shotcrete which is resistant to moisture, water, and pressure. Pressure grouting plugs any gaps in masonry walls while hollow walls create an air-gap between inner and outer walls to keep out water.
Cementitious tanking is primarily used for basements, tanks and tunnels below ground level. It can be applied to a variety of surfaces, such as concrete, brick, stone and stonework. The damp proofing is applied to the internal façade of the structure.
To lessen dampness that permeates the walls of some homes, one technique is to employ renovating plaster. This is a prepackaged lightweight backing plaster akin to 1:1:6 render (cement: lime: sand); however, instead of sand it contains Perlite aggregate, making it light and easy to work with.
Using damp-proof paint is another way to help keep your home dry. This paint is non-toxic and serves as a moisture barrier. Generally, it’s thick and comes in black or white. You may also hear it referred to as water-resistant or damp resistant paint. Once you’ve applied the paint, no more stains will appear on your walls; this type of paint also stops mould from developing, which can lead to health problems like respiratory difficulties.
If you find moisture in your home, act quickly; otherwise, the occupants and structure can face serious repercussions. Dampness not only causes a visual nuisance, but it can also cause significant structural damage to the building and threaten its stability if left untreated. Moreover, research suggests that it may exacerbate respiratory issues in people with existing conditions.
If your home exhibits dampness, no matter the cause, get in touch with our damp proofing experts without delay.
If not monitored, damp can lead to various problems in the structure, among them:
