  • Penetrating Damp

  • Condensation

  • Rising Damp

 

We will examine these 3 main sorts of damp problems, and come up with tips on how to prevent them happening and resolve them, if they come about.

PENETRATING DAMP

Things like blocked cavity walls, cracks in brickwork, damaged drainpipes or guttering and loose or broken roof tiles are all external factors of penetrating damp. Internal factors behind penetrating damp may be damaged shower trays, overflowing sinks or baths and burst or dripping water pipes. Obvious signs such as blistering or broken plaster, damp, dark patches on walls and flaking paintwork, all suggest that these issues have been left uncontrolled.

If you've got a leaking roof and it has been left untreated for a while, it can cause wet rot to develop in your roof timbers. Although brickwork isn't affected by wet rot, the timbers on your roof can be seriously damaged, and if it becomes structurally unsound, the whole roof may need to be replaced. There are several warning signs of wet rot which aren't difficult to spot, the principle ones being; the presence of black fungus on woodwork, a "spongy" feel to the timber and a musty smell. When any of these wet rot signs are noticed, it's vital to address the issue promptly to prevent further damage and the potential need for costly roof replacement.

The measures for prevention can be pretty basic, for example repointing brickwork, inspecting piping for leaks and cleaning and checking your roof & rain gutters for leaks. As part of a complete damp proofing package, your local Nuthall damp proofing specialist will check all of these factors.

CONDENSATION

Condensation Damp Nuthall UK (0115)

One of the most common reasons for damp is condensation, and a lot of households in Nuthall suffer from this. When cool surfaces come into contact with warm, humid air, minute water droplets appear on those cold surfaces. It is often caused because of inadequate ventilation in areas where high humidity is present, i.e. bathrooms, kitchens and boiler rooms.

Basic strategies to reduce condensation involve wiping away any droplets of water whenever they form and making sure that you have adequate ventilation in the major problem areas. To help remove the humid and moist air from your property, you may need to install or update cooker hoods, air bricks and extractors.

By undertaking an in-depth damp proofing survey, a decent Nuthall company will find any spots where moist air is sucked in from the outside, simply making matters worse. Circulation and airflow has to be regulated properly to effectively control condensation problems, and a competent damp proofing specialist will give advice and offer solutions on this topic.

RISING DAMP

A damp proof course or membrane has been installed as standard on homes constructed in the UK since 1875. You might not have a damp course on your house in Nuthall if it was built earlier than this. If you are experiencing rising damp in a house constructed after this time it might be that your damp proof membrane has been damaged in some way.

It can be tricky to distinguish rising damp, but some giveaway signs are; crumbling or rotten skirtings, tide marks on walls and white powdery deposits being found on floor surfaces or appearing on walls. Whilst the existence of one or more of these isn't conclusive, they're all clear indications of rising damp.

Rising Damp Nuthall Nottinghamshire

Merely checking your property's outside walls to find out if you've got a DPM can be one step towards fixing your problems with rising damp. In order to get a satisfactory measure of protection the damp course needs to be above ground level by at least 150mm (about six inches). If this isn't the situation you can dig the ground away to generate this gap, or if this is not feasible, you can put in a higher damp course.

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

Damp proofing specialists in Nuthall can quickly detect and eliminate rising damp problems using a number of techniques. A damp proof cream can be injected into your wall if you have an older home with no damp proof course, or one that's damaged over an extensive area. This calls for the drilling of holes at intervals in your brickwork and the cream injected with a special nozzle to fill up the spaces behind the brickwork.

If the damp proofing cream treatment is not suitable, or the damage to your membrane is too extensive, a new damp proof course may have to be installed. Whilst this sort of repair work is a fairly drastic way to solve rising damp problems, it might be your only real solution in the end.

Another option for less severe areas of damp course damage could include painting on a layer a waterproof (bitumen based) latex emulsion coating. Carpets, wooden flooring or tiles will need to be lifted before any work is done, since it's applied beneath your existing floor coverings. Also used as an integral part of the tanking procedure to make a space watertight, this is a particularly effectual solution in basement areas. Before the bitumen paint has completely dried, your Nuthall damp proofing specialist may advise the use of building paper (a specialist foil backed membrane), for added protection.

Tanking: To waterproof cellars, basements or below-ground areas, "tanking" is used, which entails applying a special waterproof paint to the exposed surfaces. This process necessitates first removing all existing plaster and wall coverings to ensure the waterproof coating is applied directly to the walls and floors' base. This step is essential to create a barrier that is impermeable to moisture. After application, it's crucial to let the coating dry completely before undertaking any replastering or decorating. Tanking is a thorough method, impacting the entire lower part of a building, so it's advisable to consult multiple damp proofing experts to ascertain if tanking is the optimal solution for your rising damp problems, as there might be less invasive yet equally effective alternatives.

DEHUMIDIFIERS AS A SOLUTION TO DAMP PROBLEMS

To help ease issues with condensation, you can try using dehumidifiers, which for reducing the moisture content of the air, are very effective. The fact that these gadgets simply cover up the cause of the damp and not get rid of it, is the issue with the use of dehumidifiers. If you're suffering from damp or mould in any area of your home in Nuthall, you can speak to an experienced damp proofing company for the most reliable advice.

Condensation Control Nuthall

Control of condensation is crucial for maintaining a comfortable and healthy indoor environment. Water droplets form when warm, moist air comes into contact with colder surfaces, causing condensation. Damage to building materials, mould growth, and a decline in indoor air quality can be caused by uncontrolled condensation.

Condensation Control Nuthall

Effective control of condensation necessitates adequate ventilation, which regulates humidity levels and facilitates the circulation of air. Additionally, using double-glazed windows and insulation can help reduce differences in temperature and minimise condensation. Creating a more pleasant working or living environment is achievable by effectively managing condensation, which helps prevent potential issues.

Double-glazed windows and insulation can also help to reduce temperature differentials and minimise condensation. Moist, warm air cannot come into direct contact with cold surfaces because of insulation, which serves as a thermal barrier. Reducing the temperature difference is one way to decrease the likelihood of condensation forming on surfaces like windows, ceilings and walls. Double-glazed windows, featuring two panes of glass with an insulating layer between, are effective at maintaining a uniform inside temperature, further suppressing condensation.

To control condensation effectively, one technique is to tackle moisture sources head-on. Moisture is released into the air by activities such as showering, drying clothes indoors and cooking. To prevent excessive humidity buildup, use exhaust fans and ensure good ventilation in bathrooms and kitchens. Using dehumidifiers in areas susceptible to high moisture content can also help maintain acceptable indoor humidity levels.

Preventing potential issues and creating a more comfortable living or working environment can be accomplished by effectively managing condensation. The health and well-being of occupants, as well as the structural integrity of buildings, can be safeguarded by controlling the interior environment. Routine maintenance checks, including inspecting seals around doors and windows for gaps, can help you identify areas where condensation is likely to occur. As our understanding of building science and indoor air quality advances, so too do new condensation control strategies and techniques, providing even more effective ways to ensure a healthy and comfortable indoor environment. To summarise, insulation, moisture source management, ventilation, and cutting-edge technologies are all vital components of a comprehensive condensation control strategy.
