What Causes Damp?

There are several causes of damp that can allow these conditions to get a foothold in your home, therefore understanding how damp can be caused is important. Identifying potential problems and having a damp surveyor deal with them, is important before they weaken the structure of your home.

We Survey your property until we find the real problem!

What you must understand is that – damp is rarely a problem in itself. Most often than not – it’s there because of another underlying cause – i.e., leakage, drainage system, pipes, ventilation, etc. You can’t really get rid of the damp unless and until you fix the source.

It starts with a simple interaction. We tend to ask questions about the problems you’re facing – as well as the history of the house. Then, our experts go on their own to find the source cause of moisture in your house..

What is Damp?​

Damp is the most common problem to affect properties, especially older ones where the damp-proofing isn’t to the modern standard. While small mold patches or a little extra moisture in the home might not seem like a big problem, damp is an issue that can develop behind the scenes and lead to other serious conditions including wet, dry rot and woodworm infestation.

The term ‘damp’ refers to unwanted moisture in the structure of a building, as either a result of intrusion from outside or condensation from within the structure. Damp can also be described as water ingress, which is the action of water infiltrating a property. Damp usually occurs due to some sort of defect in the building such as cracks in the render allowing water to penetrate the property.

Given the effects of extreme damp, we would always advise that if you identify problematic areas of damp in your property, then you should contact a specialist damp contractor to investigate the source of the water ingress into the building.  The specialists will then look into what potential damage has been caused and determine how to prevent water entry and penetrating damp causing any further damage. 

Any water coming into your home or a building is bad news. When water enters into the building it is referred to as penetrating damp, this is because the water penetrates through the walls to make its way into the property. Some of the effects of damp are damage to decoration, fungal decay, and long term issues with damp. Damp in your home can also have an impact on your health. Where dampness occurs, the source must be established and remedial action must be taken. The various types of damping are; rising damp, condensation, penetrating damp, structural damp.
