Rising damp treatment Mijas

Rising damp can aesthetically destroy the façade of a detached house in just a few months.

But the consequences can be worse, as it can even, on certain occasions, endanger the integrity of the construction.

This type of damp comes from the ground, rises up the wall and penetrates the masonry, damaging the materials and the paint layer, causing flaking and other damage.

However, rising damp has a solution. In proPERLA® we have applied it in many properties in Mijas and it has worked perfectly.

What is rising damp and how to treat it

Rising damp is very common and affects properties that are built on sites with high humidity in the subsoil.

This moisture rises through the wall and penetrates the building materials. If the materials are porous, the damage will be greater. In addition, rising damp is more dangerous than the others, because it carries mineral salts from the soil and accelerates the destructive effect.

The defects it causes, if not prevented, can be very expensive to repair (damage to plaster, paint, wallpaper, etc.).

What does the treatment consist of?

What is the best treatment for rising damp in Mijas?

To put an end to rising damp, at proPERLA®, our applicators inject a special cream into the wall to create a protective membrane.

The treatment prevents the problem of rising damp.

However, if the problem existed before, the injections must first be carried out and then the affected façade must be rehabilitated, so that it does not happen again.

The treatment consists of making small perforations in the wall at ground level and injecting the cream. The cream expands inside the building materials to form a horizontal barrier that prevents water from rising.

This video explains how our rising damp treatment works.

How do we fix rising damp?

The solution to rising damp is in following these steps in detail:

1. Inspection of the affected wall by our applicators to ascertain the extent of the damage and the path to follow to repair the affected wall.
2. Drilling of holes in the wall.
3. Injection of our product proPERLA DPC® into these holes.
4. Plastering of the holes with a water-repellent mortar.
5. Painting of the façade with our Water-repellent paint.

At the client’s decision, the original colour of the facade can be respected or changed to a new one.

Following these steps, your wall is protected against rising damp and has no visible signs of damp.
