Damp proofing in Basingstoke explained
Rising damp is caused by moisture in the ground seeping through brick or stone walls, damaging the structure and furnishings of a building. This can lead to wood rot, paint blistering, mould growth and health issues for inhabitants.
The most effective way of dealing with this issue is to install a chemical DPC (damp-proof course) which creates a barrier between the home and the outside. If your issues are caused by poor draining, broken pipes or environmental conditions, then this treatment plan will help to protect your home from damp.
How does damp proofing help?
The installation of a damp-proof course will help to protect your property from further damage. It will also reduce the risk of mould growth, wood rot and paint blistering, as well as providing improved air quality inside the home.
While you might be able to manage the cosmetic issues related to damp, you’ll need to call in the professionals to address the underlying cause. A damp-proof course should last for many years, meaning you can enjoy a healthy living environment with little ongoing maintenance.

What are the first signs of damp?
Damp can be difficult to spot as the signs are often in lesser-seen parts of your home such as under floorboards or behind furniture. If you think you might be suffering from rising damp, then it’s important to identify the signs. These include:
- Peeling wallpaper or paint
- Condensation on windows or walls
- Musty smells in rooms
- Mould and water stains
- Rotting skirting boards
- Soft and rotting floorboards
- Walls that are cold to the touch
If you have noticed any of these signs in your Basingstoke property, then you should book a survey as soon as possible to prevent any further damage.
