What is the best rising Damp Treatment?
Damp proofing course requires 2 crucial elements. It is essential to get the damp proof course right the first time to avoid intensifying the scenario and extra expenses along with reinstallation at a later date. You can speak with our damp proofing team about installation, however this is the standard process below.
You should install a damp proof course by pattern, drilling the masonry at the base of the damp walls and injecting a specifically developed formula, until the whole depth is fully impregnated.
Mould Away’s process when damp proofing walls, is low odour and treats within the masonry wall to form an impervious barrier to rising damp and mould, which prevents wetness rising from the ground into the treated walls. Nearby abutting walls are separated utilizing a vertical damp proof course as part of the damp proofing treatment.
Used in conjunction with our expert water resistant rendering system this provides a reliable and cost-effective technique of treatment to guarantee damp walls are no longer a concern in your house.
The brand-new damp proof course within the damp walls will prevent moisture rising and the masonry will begin to dry out. Due to the effects of ground salts, the damp walls will not dry out fully unless the existing plaster is removed and changed using a specific render.
