Different types of damp
The important thing to keep in mind is that there are three specific types, each with their own characteristics. Below you can read about each of them and what we can do resolve each problem.
The most common type is condensation and it can happen in any property, regardless of the structural condition. The problem occurs because of a combination of water vapour in the air and cold surfaces such as walls and ceilings. Issues such as fluctuating temperatures, cold walls, and bad ventilation can cause the damp.
The second type is rising damp. As the name suggests it occurs when groundwater moves up the walls within the property. This can be a serious concern because the water weakens the building materials. This situation is more likely in area with wet marshy ground and poor drainage. To prevent it, a damp-proof course or membrane must be installed in the walls to prevent the water from rising.
The final type is penetrating damp. It occurs when water penetrates into flaws in the structure, including gaps in walls and roof, or leaky plumbing. The moisture will travel horizontally through the property, commonly affecting ceilings. Repairs are necessary to resolve the issue.
