How does Rising Damp Occur?

The main component to Rising Damp is moisture, which rises through the capillary action within the stone/brickwork. If it is left unresolved, it can then become the main cause of dry rot, wet rot and salt contamination.

How to resolve Rising Damp?

At Timkon Services, we have various ways that we can get rid of Rising Damp, depending on how serious each situation is. Here’s a list of the possible treatments:

  • Chemical Damp Proof Treatment – This can be recommended for certain types of walling. This Rising Damp treatment involves the injection of a chemical under pressure, into holes that are drilled at intervals into the wall. These drills that are made within the wall are at certain levels which are decided by our surveyor at the time of the inspection.
  • Injection Mortar/Creams – This type of Rising Damp treatment is ideal for many applications. It is particularly great for when a reasonably sized bed joint is visible. At Timkon Services, our injection creams are inserted under low pressure and is carried into the mortar beds and rubble. This then crystallises and forms into a Rising Damp
  • Electro Osmotic Treatment – This Rising Damp treatment is an active system which introduces tiny electrical currents into the wall. This is done just above the ground level and aims to push the moisture back down the wall and ensure that the walls are damp free.
