Rising damp treatment – Injectable DPC


Say goodbye to rising damp

Rising damp is a common problem caused by the upward movement of water in low sections of walls, leading to unsightly and possibly damaging effects on your property.
🤔 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗺𝗮𝘆 𝗯𝗲 𝗮𝘀𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴, 𝗰𝗮𝗻 𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗱𝗮𝗺𝗽 𝗶𝗻 𝗯𝗿𝗶𝗰𝗸 𝘄𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘀 𝗮𝗰𝘁𝘂𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗰𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝗱𝗮𝗺𝗮𝗴𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘀?
✅ Yes, rising damp in brick walls and concrete walls can damage the walls if left untreated.
Over time, this can cause a range of problems, including:
𝗖𝗿𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗰𝗿𝘂𝗺𝗯𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗼𝗳 𝗯𝗿𝗶𝗰𝗸𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸: The constant presence of moisture in the bricks can lead to the breakdown of the material, causing it to become brittle and crumble.
𝗘𝗳𝗳𝗹𝗼𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗰𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲: Efflorescence is caused by vapour migrating through the slab and/or slab, bringing soluble salts to the surface. This can make the brickwork look unsightly. While efflorescence in and of itself is not harmful, it should be taken seriously as a potential indicator of other problems. For example, it can be an indication that there is excess moisture in the walls or foundation of your building.
𝗠𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗺𝗶𝗹𝗱𝗲𝘄 𝗴𝗿𝗼𝘄𝘁𝗵: The damp conditions created by rising damp can encourage the growth of mould and mildew, which can affect the indoor air quality.
𝗗𝗮𝗺𝗮𝗴𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗼𝗿 𝘄𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘀 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗶𝘀𝗵𝗲𝘀: The moisture from rising damp can also seep into the interior walls and finishes, causing the paint to peel, plaster to crack, and wallpaper to become discoloured.

To prevent rising damp from causing damage to brick or concrete walls, it is essential to identify the source of the moisture and take steps to prevent it from entering the building. This may involve installing a damp-proof course, improving ventilation, leak sealing or addressing drainage issues around the perimeter of the building.

Waterstop Solutions’ injectable DPC (Damp Proof Course) involves the installation of a chemical Damp Proof Course (DPC) – an impermeable barrier near the base of the wall above ground level to prevent water from entering your walls through capillary action.
