  • Rising Damp


These 3 key types of damp are described in greater detail in the following paragraphs, along with strategies for prevention and resolution, in the event you find them in your property in Bolton-upon-Dearne.


Issues like cavity wall issues, unsound brickwork, loose or broken roof tiles and damaged guttering are typical external factors that can cause penetrating damp in your home. From within, overflowing sinks or baths, cracked shower trays and dripping or burst pipes, can trigger penetrating damp. If left to continue leaking these issues allow water to soak into woodwork and walls, which with time lead to damp dark patches on walls, broken or blistering plaster and peeling paintwork.

If left untreated for an extended period of time, a leaky roof can cause wet rot to occur in your roof timbers. Wet rot does not spread into your brickwork, but having it can mean that in the worst outcome your roof timbers become structurally unsafe, requiring a new roof. Wet rot can be recognised by black fungus appearing on your woodwork and a spongy feel to the rafters, coupled with a unique musty smell from the rotting timber.

Simple steps like repointing dodgy brickwork, cleaning and checking your roof and rain gutters for leaks and inspecting piping for leaks, are the basic preventative maintenance measures.

Condensation Damp Bolton-upon-Dearne UK (01709)

Condensation is super easy to spot and a common form of damp in many homes in Bolton-upon-Dearne. When warm, humid air makes contact with cooler surfaces (such as windows), tiny droplets of water swiftly form. In areas where high humidity is present, such as: boiler rooms, kitchens and bathrooms, condensation is often caused because of poor ventilation.

Basic solutions to prevent condensation involve wiping up any droplets as soon as they form and making certain there's adequate ventilation in the problem areas. This might call for the installation or updating of air bricks, cooker hoods and extractors to help reroute the humid air to the outside of your house.

There might be issues with drawing in damp air from outside, and by completing an in-depth damp proofing survey a specialist in Bolton-upon-Dearne will be able to find circumstances that play a role in the problem. To adequately minimise condensation problems, airflow has to be properly regulated. A professional Bolton-upon-Dearne damp proofing specialist will be happy to offer solutions and advice in regards to this.

Damp Proofing Quotes in Bolton-upon-Dearne South Yorkshire


Houses built since 1875 in the UK have been required to have a damp proof course or membrane to be fitted as standard. If your house was built before this period it's possible that you may not have this installed. If you're suffering with rising damp in a property built after this date it's possible that your damp proof course has been damaged somehow.

Although quite difficult to distinguish, rotten or crumbling skirtings, white powdery deposits forming on walls or being found on floor surfaces and "tide marks" on walls, are all giveaway clues that you may have rising damp. If you notice or think you may have any of these issues, it's possible you have a rising damp problem.

Rising Damp Bolton-upon-Dearne South Yorkshire

Resolving rising damp problems can be as straightforward as checking your property's exterior walls and seeing if you can see a damp proof course. It needs to be 150 millimetres (approximately 6 inches) above ground level for satisfactory protection. If this isn't the situation you may be able to dig away the ground to create this gap, or if this isn't plausible, you can put in a higher damp course.

If your DPM (damp proof membrane) is installed and in order and the gap from the ground isn't the root cause of the problem, dampness might be coming up through your flooring and into your walls, which could be a more challenging issue.

Damp proofing specialists in Bolton-upon-Dearne will swiftly detect and resolve rising damp problems using a number of different procedures. Older properties which either have no DPM at all, or have one which is damaged over a substantial area, can be treated with a damp proofing injection cream such as Permaguard. Holes will be drilled at intervals along the mortar course, and a nozzle is used to inject the special cream, which then soaks into the surrounding brickwork before curing to form an effective, horizontal water-repelling barrier.

If the damage to your damp course membrane is too extensive, or if damp proofing cream isn't a suitable solution, you might need to put in a brand new damp proof course. Whilst this level of repair work is a pretty extreme way to solve damp issues, it might be your only effective solution at the end of the day.

Yet another remedy for smaller areas of damage might include painting on a layer a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion coating. Tiles, carpeting or laminate flooring will have to be lifted prior to work being undertaken, because it is applied underneath your floor coverings. Also used as an integral part of the tanking process to make a space watertight, this is a particularly efficacious solution in cellars. For further protection in such troublesome areas, your Bolton-upon-Dearne damp proof specialist might advise laying building paper (a foil backed specialist membrane) before the bitumen paint has has dried out completely.

Tanking: Tanking an area, such as a cellar or below ground area, is the process of coating any exposed surfaces in a waterproof paint. This should be applied at the base level of walls and floors, and so all plaster and wall covering must be removed and the surfaces in question prepared properly before the commencement of any work. You can replaster the walls and decorate over the top of it, as soon as the paint has completely dried. You should always get more than one expert's opinion on whether this is really the only cure for your damp problems, as this is a very disruptive process since it needs to be applied to an entire ground floor or basement level of a property.


To help with condensation issues, you could always try dehumidifiers, which for removing moisture from the air, are fairly efficacious. Because dehumidifiers just hide the cause of the damp and don't cure it, there are drawbacks to this option. If you're experiencing damp or mould in any area of your property in Bolton-upon-Dearne, you should call on a certified damp proofing company for the most reliable advice.


Friends and neighbours should always be your first port of call when you're looking for recommendations and testimonials for local professionals.
