Damp Proofing Arnold Nottinghamshire (NG5)


  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


These 3 primary forms of damp are described in greater detail in the following paragraphs, together with tips on prevention and resolution, in the event you discover them in your house in Arnold.


Penetrating damp can be attributable to a whole host of external factors for example: cracked roof tiles, damaged guttering, cracks in brickwork and cavity wall problems. Inside your Arnold property, penetrating damp can be a result of overflowing sinks or baths, damaged shower trays and burst or dripping pipes. If left to carry on leaking these things allow water to soak into walls and woodwork, which over time create broken or blistering plaster, dark damp patches on walls and peeling or bubbling paintwork.

If you've got a leaky roof and it has been neglected over a long period of time, it can cause wet rot to develop in your roof timbers. Wet rot cannot spread into brickwork, but it can mean that in the worst outcome the timbers of your roof become structurally dangerous, requiring a new roof. If a black fungus appears on your woodwork and the roof timbers feel "spongy" to touch, you may have problems with wet rot.

Preventative measures can be relatively basic, such as cleaning and checking your rain gutters and roof for leaks, inspecting pipes for leaks and repointing brickwork. As part of a complete damp proofing arrangement, your local Arnold damp proofing specialist will check out all these factors.


Condensation Damp Arnold UK (0115)

Very easy to spot and the cause of damp in a lot of Arnold homes, condensation is very common. When moist, warm air makes contact with cooler surfaces (such as windows), small droplets of water immediately form. It's often caused due to inadequate ventilation in places where high humidity is present, i.e. boiler rooms, kitchens and bathrooms.

Wiping up any droplets that appear, and ensuring that you have enough ventilation in the affected areas, are among the most basic answers to such issues. The steps needed might involve the installation or updating of air bricks, extractor fans and cooker hoods, with the intention of redirecting damp air to the outside of your property in Arnold.

The most effective way to establish the main factors that exacerbate the problem, is to get a detailed damp proofing survey done by a credible Arnold company. Occasionally moist air can be drawn in from the outside, simply making things even worse. Airflow needs to be regulated properly to successfully control condensation, and a certified damp proofing technician will give advice and offer solutions on this topic.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Arnold Nottinghamshire


A damp proof course or membrane has been fitted as standard on houses constructed in Great Britain since 1875. You may not have a damp proof course installed on your home in Arnold if it was built prior to this period. It's possible that your damp proof membrane might have been damaged if you are suffering with rising damp issues in a property built after this year.

It can be difficult to distinguish rising damp, however some giveaway indications are; crumbling or rotten skirting boards, tide marks on walls and white powdery deposits forming on walls or being found on floor surfaces. While the existence of one or more of these isn't conclusive, they are all indications of rising damp.

Rising Damp Arnold Nottinghamshire

Dealing with rising damp problems can be as simple as checking your home's external walls and seeing if you can see a DPM. It needs to be 150 millimetres (around six inches) above the level of the ground for satisfactory protection. You could dig away the surrounding earth to create this space if it's currently not enough, or you can install a damp proof course higher up if the first option is not plausible.

If your DPM (damp proof membrane) is in order and the gap from the ground is not the cause of the problem, dampness might be coming up through your flooring and into your walls, which could be a much more serious issue.

Using a number of different techniques, damp proofing professionals in Arnold will quickly detect and solve rising damp. If you've got an older property with no DPM or it is damaged over an extensive area, a damp proofing cream (such as Dryzone or Permaguard) can be carefully injected into your wall. This cream is injected with a special nozzle into holes drilled at intervals along the wall's mortar course, and before the cream can cure it diffuses into the adjoining brickwork creating a barrier that is repellent to water.

If the damp proofing cream treatment isn't sufficient, or the damage is too extensive to your membrane, a new damp proof course may have to be installed. Whilst this level of repair work is a pretty extreme way to solve rising damp problems, it could be your only real solution in the end.

Painting with a bitumen based, waterproof latex emulsion, is another potential remedy for smaller areas of damage. Tiles, carpeting or wood flooring must be lifted prior to work being done, because it's applied beneath your existing floor coverings. This is particularly efficacious in basements as an integral part of the tanking process to make a room that's watertight. Your Arnold damp proof technician may recommend the laying of building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane) before the bitumen paint has has dried out completely, further protection in such troublesome areas.

Tanking: Tanking an area, like a cellar or part below ground area, is a process of covering exposed surfaces with a watertight paint. All plaster and wall covering must be taken off and the pertinent surfaces prepared properly before any work begins, as this watertight coating has to be applied at the base level of walls and floors. You can replaster the walls and decorate over the top, after the coating has dried completely. This is a very disruptive job as it needs to be applied to an entire ground floor or basement level of a building, and it's advisable to get more than one specialist's opinion on whether this is really the only remedy for your rising damp.


Dehumidifiers are an efficient way of lowering the moisture content in the air, so for issues with condensation they can help. Due to the fact that dehumidifiers basically mask the cause of the damp and not cure it, there are drawbacks to this option. To obtain the most reliable advice if you are experiencing mould or damp in any area of your property, you can get in touch with a competent damp proofing company in Arnold.


The most reliable recommendations for professionals when it comes to home improvement projects are normally neighbours and friends. Before signing up to any damp proofing services, you should try to obtain at least two or three quotes from different Arnold companies. If you have any doubts about any particular company you can ask to look at qualifications and professional memberships.

Keep an eye out for technicians holding the CSRT (Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments) or the Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness qualifications, or local companies who are registered members of the Property Care Association or the DPA (Damp Proofing Association).

If your selected Arnold damp proofing specialists are in fact members of either the DPA or PCA you can be sure they will be properly qualified and have the appropriate experience to offer you a high quality service for your damp proofing project. Such memberships also means that there are guarantees for any remedial work performed.
