Rising damp is a phenomenon with serious consequences in many properties, because it causes the progressive deterioration of the interior and exterior walls and, on certain occasions, can affect the integrity of the building.
This damp comes from the ground and rises through the wall, penetrating the building materials and the paint layer and damaging them.
To prevent rising damp problems, at proPERLA® we have a special treatment that protects your property and which we have carried out on many occasions in Estepona.
We show you how it works.
Rising damp mainly affects the ground floors of buildings, i.e. garages, basements, detached houses, etc.
If building materials are very porous, such as bricks and mortars, dampness enters the wall more easily. In addition, moisture from the ground carries mineral salts that accelerate the destructive effect.
The consequences: deterioration of paint, plaster, wallpaper, etc. Repair costs can be very expensive, so it is worth investing in a preventive solution.
At proPERLA®, our applicators are always available to inspect your property and proffer the best solution to the issue.
What does the treatment consist of?
The treatment we always recommend is cream injections into the wall.
This cream spreads throughout the wall and penetrates the building materials, creating a protective membrane.
The treatment serves to prevent the damp problem. However, if the façade has already been affected by damp, after the injections have been carried out, the affected façade must be rehabilitated.
The injections are inserted into small holes made at ground level and form a barrier that prevents water from rising.

The result is a building protected against rising damp and with no aesthetic signs of damp.
