We welcome you to the Cheshire Damp website. We are here all year round to identify and resolve any damp issue you maybe experiencing around your property. Damp and rot can cause structural damage to any property, so it’s vital we indentify the issue as quickly as we can.
A Damp-Proof treat from Cheshire Damp works as a wall or barrier against damp issues, that is injected in to the fabric of a building to prevent any water passing from one place to another in the building. This can be on a horizontal plane to stop water from rising up from the ground by being sucked up by the dry mason above, or vertically to prevent water passing from the outside of a building through the masonry of the building itself.
Damp is one of the most frequent problems encountered in most properties. Moreover, there are three major causes of damp, (rising damp, penetrating damp, and condensation) each of which require a different remedy. Whatever the cause, damp can be bad for health, and therefore, it is important that you get advice if you think your property and walls are affected
High levels of mould concentrations are found in buildings where significant mould infestation has occurred, usually as a result of severe water intrusion or flood damage.Moulds can grow on almost any surface and occur where there is a lot of moisture from structural problems such as leaky roofs or high humidity levels.
Airborne mould concentrations have the potential to be inhaled and can have health effects. Externally, mortar may crumble and salt stains may appear on the walls. Steel and iron fasteners rust.
It may also cause a poor indoor air quality and respiratory illness in occupants. In extreme cases, mortar or plaster may fall away from the affected wall.
