What is damp?

Structural dampness is the presence of unwanted moisture in the structure of a building, either the result of intrusion from outside or condensation from within the structure.

  • Dampness tends to cause secondary damage to a building.
  • The unwanted moisture enables the growth of various fungi causing mold health issues and lead to sick building syndrome. Plaster and paint deteriorates.
  • Stains, from water, salts and from mold, mar surfaces.
  • Molds can grow on almost any surface and occurs where there is a lot of moisture from structural problems.
  • Airborne mold concentrations have the potential to be inhaled and causes serious health effects in humans.
  • Externally, mortar will crumble and salt stains will appear on the walls.
  • Steel and iron fasteners rust.
  • Mortar and plaster will fall away from the affected wall.
