Rising Damp 

Rising damp surveyors in Newquay

True rising damp is fairly rare, but it does exist as we can bare witness to this. However it is quite often misdiagnosed which can then result in thousands of pounds worth of unnecessary remedial damp-proofing works being carried out. What true rising dampness is not, is being diagnosed with a moisture meter during a 15 minute ‘survey’.  Only forensic damp testing will confirm the presence of true rising dampness. To diagnose true rising dampness by where moisture is being draw up from the ground into unprotected walls by capillary action can only be achieved by moisture profiling of the wall.  This entails taking drilled core samples and testing for moisture content and for the presence of ground salts, namely chlorides and nitrates.  This type of investigation is required in litigation cases and is very rare during the pre-purchase damp and timber surveys.
