Rising Damp

Rising damp occurs when moisture is absorbed through the ground and rises vertically into the walls. This occurs by capillary action and results in damp as the moisture attempts to find a means of evaporation. This damp left unchecked will continue to spread.

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is caused by water penetrating the brickwork. This might be due to leaking gutters and downpipes, defective flashings and other external issues such as brittle brickwork mortar. It is important to be one step ahead of this damp as it can cause structural issues.


Condensation occurs when warm air and excess moisture is trapped without proper ventilation. Trapped moisture builds up particularly on cool surfaces, such as windows, walls and furniture. Condensation creates the ideal conditions for mould to grow.

Remedying Rising Damp

Rising damp problems usually occur where there is either no DPC or a breakdown in the Damp Proof Course (DPC) which acts as a barrier against rising moisture. We can rectify your rising damp problem by injecting a new chemical DPC into the walls requiring treatment, to create a new barrier which will stop moisture from rising.

One solution to penetrating damp is to use a water repellent coating. A water repellent coating is applied to the bricks, which repels the water whilst still allowing them to breathe. However, alongside this it is also important to address the underlying cause of the damp, which for example might mean fixing the guttering.

Remedying Condensation

Damp problems caused by condensation should be treated differently to other damp problems. Given that condensation is often caused by everyday acts, there are also several simple ways to reduce condensation, such as not drying clothes indoors and making sure air vents are unblocked. Solutions to condensation problems include the installation of a Positive Input Ventilation system (PIV).

Problems cause by damp

If left untreated, damp can cause a number of problems to the detriment of yourself and your property.

WEt & Dry ROT

Damp can cause further structural problems to the timber of your property. Not only can this become hazardous, but it can also result in wood rotting fungi.


Damp is often associated with mould, which brings many problems with it such as allergies, breathing problems and it can worsen asthma conditions.

Health Risks

Where damp is linked with pests and mould, there is always a risk to your health. Damp can cause skin and respiratory problems, particularly for young children and the elderly.

Pest infestations

The build-up of excess moisture in your property could create the ideal conditions for a number of pests such as cockroaches, ants and rodents. These pests come with a number of health problems. Luckily, our Go2 Pest Control service is on hand to assist.
