What is rising damp?
Rising damp is a rather rare type of damp that impacts the walls of buildings. It happens when moisture from the ground travels up through the walls by capillary action. You will often notice rising damp because it results in a visible stain on the wall, which looks like a tide mark at the point whereby the groundwater has reached. There are a number of different reasons why rising damp happens. Ultimately, it means water has come from the ground and moved up, rising into the property. This happens due to structural problems of the building, in particular, the membrane or damp-proof course. This type of damp is not something that should simply be ignored. You need to get in touch with professionals as soon as possible so that the problem can be rectified properly.
