Our damp proofing method works by creating a solid barrier against damp – this prevents damp setting back into the wall in the future for the treated walls. This along with our other damp proofing services ensure that damp doesn’t wreak havoc in your property again. See some of the recent work we’ve completed in Swansea.
Rising damp is a common problem in Swansea. It happens due to homes being built on damp soil. The moisture then rises up through the walls in the property – hence the name ‘rising damp’. As you can imagine this causes the property’s walls to absorb the moisture like a sponge causing big issues in your home.
This type of damp usually occurs when vulnerable areas allow moisture through them. These include access through roof tiles, clogged guttering, damaged pointing, inadequate damp proofing. All of the above are ways penetrating damp can attack your property in Swansea.
Condensation is a very common moisture problem in homes across the country resulting in moisture gathering in certain areas as well as green and black mould forming on clothing, ceilings, walls and various surfaces.
Rot is caused when moisture combined with lack of ventilation provides the ideal conditions for fungus to attack. It can affect all types of property in Swansea, historic or modern and can grow within the cracks and cavities in the walls feeding off debris and wood behind the plaster.
Woodworm is given to the infestation of by the wooden item by the larvae of any species of beetle. Signs of woodworm usually consist of small holes in the wooden item with live infestations showing powder around the holes.
