How can you get damp out of the wall?

It is a problem that occurs in a large part of UK homes, damp walls and other damp problems. You may think that damp spots on the wall are not that bad, but nothing could be further from the truth. Damp walls are definitely harmful, not only to the home- high humidity in the house can also cause various health problems. That is why it is important to remove the damp from the walls as quickly as possible. That is not only good for the home, but also for your health.

Possible damp problems in the wall

When you notice damp spots on the wall, you actually already know that you have a damp problem in the house. But what type of damp problem is it exactly? It is best to have it checked by an expert in the field of damp control. There are a few ways you can identify the type of damp problem. For example, the damp spots are especially visible at the bottom of the wall during rising damp. Penetrating damp is usually visible in the center of the wall, or when the wall is stained with a dark colour. Condensation is usually visible on or around the windows and usually occurs in homes with poor ventilation.

How do you recognize damp walls in the house?
