Without any kind of barrier, moisture seeps slowly upwards through materials through capillary action. To prevent this, it is important to have a complete, impermeable barrier to ensure that any moisture is halted before it can cause any damage. However it is vital a thorough survey is undertaken to rule out condensation, penetrating damp or even a pike leak.
Sometimes damp proof courses can become damaged, allowing moisture access. In other cases older properties may have been built without any kind of damp proofing. In either case, Exe Terminators & Co. Ltd will ensure that rising damp is stopped using the latest most effective products such as Dryrods.
