Rising damp treatment Nerja

Rising damp is a destructive phenomenon in any type of building, because it causes problems in exterior and interior walls.

The damp, coming from the ground, rises up the wall and penetrates the masonry, damaging the materials and the paint layer.

However, at proPERLA® we have a solution against rising damp in Nerja.

What is rising damp and how to treat it

Rising damp is a type of damp that affects many properties, and it comes from the ground.

If the building materials are porous (such as brick or mortar), it is easy for moisture to enter the wall. Soil moisture contains salts that accelerate the destructive effect.

Damage (deterioration of paint, plaster, wallpaper or building materials) can be very costly to repair.

What does the treatment consist of?

What is the best treatment for rising damp in Nerja?

The best solution is to inject the wall with a cream that creates a protective membrane against dampness.

This 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 treatment consists of drilling several holes in the wall at ground level and injecting the cream. Once the product has been injected, the protective barrier will prevent water from coming up the wall.

How do we fix rising damp?

Our applicators first inspect the wall to find out the extent of the damage and the best approach to the job.

Next, holes are drilled in the wall and the damp-proofing cream is injected into the wall through the holes. The holes are then plastered with a water-repellent mortar and the finishing touch is given by painting with our proPERLA® water-repellent paint, respecting the original colour of the façade.

At this point, your wall will have a barrier against rising damp and has no visible signs of damp.
