Rising damp is the term used for when unwanted moisture is present in your property and slowly ascends the walls. The water starts at ground level and is then soaked up by absorbable materials such as sandstone and mortar. If rising damp problems are left untreated, the structural integrity of your building is weakened, leading to expensive repair work. Dampness in a home can lead to mould problems which will negatively affect the health of you and your family.

Several warning signs that show your Bournemouth property might have rising damp problems:

At Tudor Remedial Services, we treat rising damp problems in Bournemouth by inserting chemical damp-proof courses throughout your property which controls the vertical movement of moisture from the ground.

Other types of damp problems include:

Traumatic damp

Traumatic damp occurs when an indoor water source is leaking and reaches your walls or ceilings. This water source is usually from pipes, drains and radiators not working correctly.

Penetrating damp

This form of damp problem is caused by aging and damaged bricks, guttering, defective roofs and windows losing their ability to keep the rain out.
