Curing rising damp in external and internal walls
If you have problems with rising damp then we have the products which can help you cure them.
A basic starting point is to make sure you clean, repair or install drains to carry away any surface water that might affect your property – the water has to go somewhere so good drainage will help get rid of water which may cause damp.
If your interior floors are below the ground level outside you may need to form trenches along the external face of the walls. If so make them at least 150mm below the damp proof course level where possible. If you can’t achieve that level you can raise the height of the DPC to 150mm above the exterior ground level. Tank your interior walls below the course to prevent moisture coming in and salts appearing.
Remove any skirtings, render/plaster and fixings to expose the line of the proposed DPC. Interior plaster which may be contaminated with hygroscopic salts, should be cut back by a minimum of 1 metre above the DPC line or 300mm above the highest signs of the dampness or salts.
Check your flooring timber for any signs of fungal decay and recommend repair or replacement as appropriate. Ensure that all wall cavities are cleared of waste.
