Rising Damp Treatment

Rising Damp is the name given to a form of dampness, which only comes from groundwater, moving up through the masonry pour structure. Usually, a DPC is fitted during construction.

Some remedial Rising Damp control measures:

pressure injection of chemical DPC

Install a remedial chemical damp proof course to control the groundwater by controlling capillarity movement by fluid injected under pressure or cream injected into the mortar joints.

weak charge reversing water flow

Install a remedial electro-osmotic system to control the rising groundwater by reversing its flow. The electro-osmotic system is fully reversible and suitable for historic buildings.

  • Cut into the walls and install a physical damp proof course, but this could affect the building structure.
  • Drain the ground around the property but may not be practical and needs to be monitored.
