Rising damp is bad for your home and your health

Rising damp is a problem which commonly affects older properties where the original damp proof course has become damaged, or the ground level around the property has been raised. 

Over time, water works its way through brick or stone work and the cement holding it together, causing rising damp.

Aside from being unsightly and potentially bad for the health of those living in the affected property, rising damp often leads to timber decay which can affect the fabric of your home. That’s why it’s important to deal with the problem sooner rather than later, as leaving it will only cause it to get worse and make it more expensive to deal with later on. So, if you notice wallpaper peeling, mould around skirting boards or damp patches, you should call Ryedale Remedials immediately for a survey.

Because rising damp can often be mistaken for other damp-related problems such as penetrative damp leading to the wrong treatments being applied, it’s important to consult experienced professionals like the team at Ryedale Remedials.
