Having damp in your property can lead to problems for both the building and those who spend an extended amount of time there. As soon as damp is noticed, it is important to call in the experts. The longer that damp is left, the worse the problem can become and therefore you are much more likely to see the detrimental impacts.
When damp gets into your property, if not treated in a timely manner, it can begin to spread into woodwork and plaster. This will cause crumbling plasterwork, which can eventually lead to the structure of your wall deteriorating. When the damp has successfully entered your property, the surrounding material can also begin to absorb the moisture. This includes wooden materials, which can lead to wet rot decay setting in, if left untreated. Damp walls greatly reduce the ability for them to insulate the building effectively. This means that it will take more energy, time and money to heat your property.
A damp home can provide an ideal environment for fungal microbes to thrive, which can cause mould to grow on walls and ceilings. Various types can develop, though it is black mould in particular that can be damaging to your health. This is especially dangerous for those who are more vulnerable such as children, adolescents, elderly people and those with existing health conditions. Black mould can aggravate asthma and other respiratory problems. As well as this, it can negatively impact your immune system which makes you more susceptible to other dangerous illnesses.
Rising damp is an issue we come across commonly when damp proofing Selby. Rising damp occurs when a building is in contact with the ground and the dampness from this is drawn up into the walls. This happens through ‘capillary action’ which describes the natural movement of moisture on a microscopic level via a porous material. This moisture is then absorbed by adjacent brick and plaster, leading to damp spreading to further areas.
Penetrating damp is another variation of damp that impacts buildings throughout Selby. Most commonly this is a problem in cellars or basements that have earth retaining walls which can cause the adjacent brickwork to absorb water from the surrounding ground. This will eventually reach internal wall surfaces, causing damage to plasterwork.
Our chemical damp proof course, exclusive to the ALLDAMP range, is suitable for most properties throughout Selby. The intelligent damp treatment can be applied retrospectively and adds a water-resistant layer between your building’s brickwork.
When installed by Allerton we can guarantee its effectiveness for 20 years.
A specially-formulated render additive which acts as a water inhibitor and plasticiser. When carrying out plastering inside homes, our staff use ALLDAMP Render Additive, turning their plasterwork into a damp proof barrier to future water ingress.
ALLDAMP Render Additive is used in most Allerton repair projects. With this system, homeowners can redecorate and furnish with the confidence that damp will not return in future.
A specially-designed wall covering, which creates a damp proof surface over which plasterboard and plaster can be applied. The ALLDAMP damp proofing membrane creates a damp proof barrier and cavity between the existing brickwork and wall surface, preventing future damp penetration.
ALLDAMP Damp Proofing Membrane is an incredibly versatile product which is suitable for use above and below ground. It is our go-to product for carrying out basement waterproofing projects.
When you spot damp in your home or business, call damp proofers in Selby as soon as possible. The longer you leave damp untreated, the more likely it is that the problem will spread. Not only this, but it also becomes a lot harder to treat, taking more time and therefore costing you more money.
