One of the biggest signs you need rising damp treatment is the presence of water or 'tide marks' on your lower walls near the floor. There could also be water marks present on the outside of your home near the foundation. Normally, these lines are no more than a metre or so high. You may also notice your walls developing dark spots or peeling wallpaper in the same area. Rising damp is often accompanied by mould or a foul, musty odour as well.
Rising damp treatment costs first and foremost depend on the extent of your problem. It is less expensive to treat rising damp whenever the problem is caught early on rather than waiting until later. The slope of your land and amount of drainage affects the cost, since these two things may need to be modified to correct the problem. An estimate for rising damp treatment does not include the cost of any repairs that might be needed in order to fix damage.

Q. What type of rising damp treatments are there?
A. There are a number of treatment options and each one will depend on your home and extent of the problem. Chemical treatment is best suited for walls, and involves injecting a siliconate chemical under pressure into holes drilled at intervals; mortar cream treatment can be used in a number of applications and involves injecting mortar cream under low pressure to form a crystalized moisture resistant barrier; lastly, electro osmotic treatment produces a very small electric current which (just above ground level) forces moisture back down the wall. Itís best to discuss which treatment option is best for you with a professional.
Q. What are some signs of rising damp?
