At =Bio-Kil=, we specialise in providing the damp proofing Dorset property owners need. We know that damp proofing is essential for making sure that your property is safe from a slow deterioration. By choosing effective damp proofing, Dorset homeowners can ensure that their property retains its value without falling victim to rising damp.
If you own a property, damp is an ever-present risk. Your property could be building moisture up in the walls, slowly retaining water that rises in the brickwork. When it comes to damp proofing, Dorset homeowners sometimes wonder how this is possible. The bricks that your property is made of may look solid, but in reality, they are not. If you could look at one of the bricks in your home under a microscope, you would see that there are countless tiny holes running through the brick. This is simply part of the makeup of a normal brick. The bad news is that these can have a tendency to work like straws. Over time, water is drawn up the channels in the bricks. This is especially the case if there is a damp source at the base of the wall, such as in the cellar or foundations, and then the house above is heated.
As the water rises up the wall, it can soak into timber and through the plaster on your walls. Over time, this can become a cause of mould, staining on the walls and crumbling plaster. More significantly, this can lead to structural problems caused by rot, especially in timber structural elements. What makes this worse is that until it becomes visible on the walls in the later stages, damp can be a nearly invisible presence in a property. This is especially the case in older buildings, and especially converted older buildings. Clearly then, damp is something that should be taken seriously.
Fortunately, at =Bio-Kil= we offer the best option for the damp proofing Dorset property owners need. We will visit the property and begin by identifying if there is a damp problem. We will then identify the cause of the damp, as this is crucial to an effective solution. Having identified the problem, we provide a solution in the form of damp proofing Dorset homeowners can trust. Commonly, this will involve inserting a chemical damp proofing course into the brickwork of your property. Do not worry! This is not an invasive or risky process. In fact, it is remarkably clean and quick, so we will not cause any disruption to your home. Essentially, the damp proofing involves an injection of a chemical barrier into the mortar between two rows of bricks. This will prevent damp rising in the brickwork.
With effective damp proofing, Dorset homeowners can protect their home and their investment. At the same time as offering the best damp proofing Dorset has to offer, we can also help with condensation and ventilation problems.
