How Does Damp Affect my Home?

Damp causes a huge range of problems both to properties and the people who occupy them. The longer you have a damp problem, the more widespread the issues become and the more you’ll notice the detrimental effects. Having damp walls reduces their ability to effectively insulate, meaning you spend more energy (and money!) heating your home – often with very little effect.

Damp also spreads into woodwork and plaster. You might notice crumbling or cracked plasterwork, leading to the deterioration of the structure of your wall, as well as the decor. When damp takes hold, all surrounding material absorbs the moisture, including floors and timber beams. If this is left, you can develop wet rot.

Damp homes are the perfect place for fungal microbes to develop, leading to mould on your walls, ceilings or in your cupboards. Mould, particularly black mould, can seriously damage health – particularly with children, adolescents or elderly people. It can lead to the development of asthma or other respiratory problems. It also lowers your immune system, increasing your likelihood of developing other illnesses.

Varieties of Damp

Rising Damp

Rising damp describes moisture that infiltrates walls from the ground beneath the property. It begins in the lower wall and is drawn up through cracks or pores in the material. It is absorbed by the brick and plaster, spreading throughout the wall.

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is caused when moisture is absorbed into the walls from the surrounding area, not simply from the ground below. This is most common in basements and cellars as the room is surrounded by damp earth, but can also occur in above-ground walls.

How much does damp proofing Wetherby cost?

There is no ‘one price fits all’ with damp proofing because every job changes according to the unique needs of each property. The extent of the damage and the size of your house affect the price. It’s vital to have an expert survey your property so you can receive an accurate quote. Allerton Damp Proofing always give you a quote before undertaking work so there are never hidden costs.

How long does damp proofing Wetherby take?

Damp proofing work varies on the size of the project so the time will depend on a lot of factors. A small project can take as little as 2-5 days as a rough guideline. A wall also requires further drying time once work is completed to ensure that the damp proofing job is as effective as it can be. When one of our experts surveys your property, they’ll provide an approximate time frame.
