Every building is prone to dampness, older buildings that have stood for many centuries are even more prone to this issue. Rising dampness occurs in buildings when moisture from the ground rises through the brick and mortar of the property. The water rises through the walls by capillary action and can cause serious structural damage over time. Rising damp symptoms can be identified by plaster and/or paint deterioration, water stains, metal corrosion, and salt deposits. Rising dampness can also adversely affect indoor air quality.
The best way to tackle the rising dampness is to identify the problem firsthand and deal with it before it causes more issues to your property.

Chemical injection waterproofing is a method of injecting a water-repellent chemical into the brick or mortar joint which lines the capillaries in the substrate, once cured it will create a continuous water-repellent barrier. This treatment is highly effective and has been used for several years. Once this treatment is complete, it will prevent dampness from rising up the wall.
This type of treatment is typically the easiest and most effective treatment to use within built properties.
