When damp problems come from within

Home / Blog / When damp problems come from within

When your property has a problem with damp, the first instinct is to assume that the rain is the source of water that’s causing the damage. This is certainly true in a majority of cases, but it is not the only possible cause. In many cases, damp problems are caused by water inside the property rather than rain or other external sources. Damaged or leaking plumbing can go undetected for quite some time, and can easily undermine any damp proofing measures you take.

Like many towns across the country, Middlesbrough features a number of older buildings. It is common for the plumbing in these properties not to have been upgraded or even serviced for many years. There’s no avoiding the fact that the pipes and joints in plumbing systems experience wear and tear through years of use, and this can see water seep out of the pipes and into your walls. If you’re experiencing damp problems even when there is no heavy rainfall, this could very well be the cause of your problems.
