What is Damp Proofing?
Damp proofing is the process of preventing moisture or water from entering or accumulating within a building structure through the walls and floor. It involves sealing wall cavities, creating barriers such as camp proof course membranes between walls, floors and ceilings, and treating the outside of the building. Not only does this help to protect against structural damage caused by water ingress, it also prevents mould build-up which can be harmful to your health if not dealt with properly.
We know that damp can cause serious damage to both the structure and contents of your home, so we will make sure that you get the right treatment for the job. We understand that there are many different types of dampness which can affect homes in Cheshunt, including rising damp and penetrating damp. We use a range of methods to tackle damp, including cavity wall insulation, dry lining and basement tanking.
Common causes of damp in Cheshunt properties
In general, damp usually occurs when excess moisture enters a building because of broken pipes or poorly insulated walls/floors. However, in Cheshunt dampness can arise for many reasons including extreme weathers such as heavy rains or snowfall; proximity to bodies of water; leaks due to poor plumbing work; faulty construction material; rising damp from failed waterproof membranes on external walls.
