  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp


Below you'll find details of what could cause problems with damp in your home or business premises in Ashby-de-La-Zouch, and exactly how you might set about fixing them.


Penetrating damp in structures can be caused by numerous external factors for example: loose or broken roof tiles, damaged guttering, cracks in brickwork and cavity wall issues. Internally, it can be caused by leaking or burst pipes, damaged shower trays and overflowing bathtubs or basins. If left unresolved, dark damp patches on walls, peeling or bubbling paintwork and broken or blistering plaster, will be the noticeable signs of water seeping into the woodwork and walls.

If you've got a leaky roof and it's been left untreated for an extended period of time, it can cause wet rot in the timbers of your roof. Wet rot does not spread into your brickwork, but having it can mean that in the worst case scenario the timbers of your roof become structurally compromised, requiring a new roof. An unusual musty smell, a "spongy" feel to your timbers and signs of a black fungus, could all indicate the presence of wet rot.

You need not fret however, since to stop these problems occurring, a few basic steps such as cleaning and checking your roof and guttering for leaks, repointing brickwork and examining piping for leaks should avoid such concerns. As an integral part of a complete damp proofing arrangement, your local Ashby-de-La-Zouch damp proofing specialist will check all these factors.


Condensation Damp Ashby-de-La-Zouch UK (01530)

One of the most common forms of damp in Ashby-de-La-Zouch properties, condensation is super easy to identify. When cooler surfaces make contact with humid, warm air, small water droplets form on those surfaces. In places with high humidity, as in: kitchens, bathrooms and boiler rooms, it's often caused because of poor ventilation.

Wiping up any droplets that form, and ensuring that there's enough ventilation in the worst affected areas, are among the easiest solutions to such problems. Redirecting moisture laden air to the outside of your home in Ashby-de-La-Zouch, by updating or fitting cooker hoods, extractors and air bricks, will help you to resolve this problem.

The most effective way to establish the main factors that play a role in the problem, is to get a detailed damp proofing survey carried out by a reliable Ashby-de-La-Zouch damp proofing specialist. In some cases damp air is sucked in from outside, simply making things worse. Airflow needs to be regulated properly to adequately minimise condensation, and a knowledgeable damp proofing specialist will give advice and offer solutions on this matter.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Ashby-de-La-Zouch Leicestershire


Houses built since 1875 in the United Kingdom have been required to have a damp proof course to be fitted as standard. You might not have a damp proof course on your property or home in Ashby-de-La-Zouch if it was built earlier than this. It is possible that your DPM may have been damaged somehow if you are suffering with rising damp problems in a house built after this year.

If you believe that you might have rising damp in your home, white powdery deposits forming on walls or being discovered on floor surfaces, rotten or crumbling skirting boards and "tide marks" on walls, are fair signs that you may be correct. It's feasible that you might have a rising damp problem if you have seen one or more of these.

Rising Damp Ashby-de-La-Zouch Leicestershire

Just checking your exterior walls to see if you have a DPM can be the first step towards solving your rising damp problems. To be certain of an adequate measure of protection the damp course should be above ground level by a minimum of 150mm (about 6"). You could dig the surrounding ground away to generate this space if it's currently not enough, or you can put in a higher damp proof membrane (DPM) if the former is not plausible.

If this is not the cause of the problem and your damp proof membrane is installed and in order, there may be more problematic issues to deal with caused by the dampness coming up from the ground, through your floor, and into the walls of your property.

Ashby-de-La-Zouch damp proofing specialists will swiftly be able to figure out the explanation for your rising damp, and using a number of different methods will soon fix the problem. A damp proofing cream (such as Dryzone) can be carefully injected into your wall if you've got an older home with no damp proof course, or one that is damaged over a significant area. This calls for the drilling of holes at intervals along the wall's mortar joint and the cream injected with a special nozzle to fill the spaces behind the brickwork down to beneath ground level.

In situations where damp proofing cream injection is not an appropriate treatment, or where your damp course membrane is too seriously damaged, putting in a whole new damp proof course might be neccessary. Though this is naturally a pretty extreme course of action, it could be the only method to solve your damp issues successfully.

The application of a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion, is yet another possible option for less severe areas of membrane damage. This will be applied underneath your floor coverings, so carpeting, tiles and wood flooring must be lifted before any work can be undertaken. Also used as a part of the "tanking" process to make a space watertight, this is a particularly effectual solution in basement areas. Your Ashby-de-La-Zouch damp proofing specialist may recommend laying building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane) before the bitumen coating has dried completely, additional protection in such problem areas.

Tanking: In below ground areas for instance cellars, tanking is the process where any exposed surfaces are covered in a waterproof coating. All plaster and wall coverings must be taken off and the appropriate surfaces correctly prepared before the commencement of any work, since this watertight coating has to be applied at the base level of floors and walls. Once this paint has been applied and is dry, it is then possible to replaster any wall surfaces and decorate over the top of it. Because it needs to be applied to an entire basement level or ground floor of a building, this is a very disruptive process. It's therefore preferable to contact more than one damp proofing expert to be sure that this is really the only effective option.


To help with condensation issues, you can try using dehumidifiers, which for removing moisture from the air, are pretty efficacious. Because dehumidifiers just hide the cause of the damp and don't cure it, there are downsides to this option. If you're suffering with damp or mould in any area of your property in Ashby-de-La-Zouch, you should get in touch with a certified damp proofing company for the best advice.


As with pretty much any project, the best recommendations for a professional come from friends and relations. When possible you should try to obtain at least three different quotes from a range of companies, and before hiring any particular damp proof providers, you can ask to look at professional membership certificates and accreditations, as proof of their integrity.

Professional Ashby-de-La-Zouch damp proofing specialists should be members of either the Damp Proofing Association or the PCA (Property Care Association), or have qualifications from the CSTDB (Certificated Surveyor of Timber and Dampness) or the Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments (CSRT).

You can be certain that your damp proofing provider is well qualified and has acquired the appropriate practical experience to provide a top notch damp proofing service, if they are members of the PCA or DPA. Any work undertaken by one of their members also comes with a guarantee.
