Penetrating damp is a common problem in buildings but it’s not one that should be ignored and once caught the problem should be solved as soon as possible to prevent any future or further issues.
What causes penetrating damp?
The cause of penetrating damp is simply down to water and moisture from outside penetrating through the walls causing the dampening damage inside.
It’s not just the ground floor penetrating damp can effect, it can be a problem for a property on any level whether on the first floor of a house or 12th floor of a flat. Although damp can affect all levels you should be aware of the fact that it is known to be more prevalent higher up.
The most common causes for penetrating damp include:
- Porous Walls
- Spalled Bricks
- Degraded Mortar
- Building Defects
All of the above are reasons why penetrating damp can affect your property so it’s always a good idea to ensure your home isn’t being affected by any of these defects.
