Rising damp does not only damage the exterior and interior walls of a building aesthetically. If not treated in time, it can endanger the integrity of the building.
Rising damp rises up through the wall from the ground, penetrating the building materials, damaging them and deteriorating the paint coating, causing flaking and other damage.
It is very common in many homes and is completely natural, so you must be prepared for it.
Because of this, in proPERLA® we have a product that we have already applied in many houses in Marbella and it has worked very well. We explain you what it consists of.
Rising damp normally affects basements, garages, ground floors or country houses, so if you live in a flat in Marbella, it will not affect you.
It is moisture that comes from the ground and rises through the walls until it enters the building materials.
If the materials are porous, the damage is greater. An example of a porous material is brick or mortar.

What does the treatment consist of?
Our solution is to stop the rising damp. How do we do it? Our applicators use our product “Damp Proof Course”.
This is a special cream that is injected into the wall to create a horizontal protective membrane. This prevents dampness from rising.
It works as a preventive method.
However, if the problem already exists, the proPERLA® DPC injections should be carried out first (to prevent this from happening again) and then the façade is rehabilitated to make it as good as new.
This video explains how our rising damp treatment works.
Our applicators visit the affected property in Marbella and start the action protocol marked by proPERLA®, which consists of the following:
After all this, your home is protected against rising damp and the façade looks perfect.
Injections are the most reliable solution to stop rising damp in interior and exterior walls.
