Rising damp treatment Torrox

Rising damp, if not solved in time, would make us see how our home suffers the progressive deterioration of the exterior and interior walls.

Even, in extreme situations, although not impossible, it can affect the integrity of a country house, villa… entire buildings.

This dampness comes from the ground and rises up the walls, entering the building materials and paint coating, deteriorating them.

What to do against rising damp? Luckily, at proPERLA® we have an innovative treatment that can protect your property. We carry out this service all over Torrox. We explain it to you.

What is rising damp and how can I identify it

Rising damp always appears on the ground floors of buildings: basements of dwellings, garages, etc.

However, they can also appear on the outside. They come from the ground on which these constructions are built.

Porous materials, such as brick, are the most prone to rising damp. In addition, the moisture in the soil contains mineral salts that accelerate deterioration.

The consequences are numerous and expensive to repair: deterioration of wallpaper, plaster, paint, etc. It is therefore always advisable to invest in a preventive solution.

What does the treatment consist of?

What is the best treatment for rising damp in Torrox?

The treatment we perform at proPERLA® is injections of cream into the wall. This cream spreads throughout the wall and enters the building materials, creating a protective membrane barrier that prevents moisture from rising.

The treatment serves as a prevention, not a solution. If the problem already exists, it is necessary to see where the dampness is coming from, to cut the wall, remove the dampness, carry out the injections and rehabilitate the façade.

The injections are made through small holes made at ground level.

How do our local Torrox applicators perform this rising damp treatment?

The official network of companies that work with proPERLA® products will contact you and schedule a visit to your property, in order to know the extent of the damage and give you a free estimate.

If accepted, the process begins with a thorough survey of the property to find out the correct way to start the work. As a general rule, it includes the following steps:

  1. Drilling holes in the wall and injecting the damp-proof barrier.
  2. Plastering holes with a water-repellent mortar.
  3. Painting the façade with water-repellent paint, in the original colour of the façade.

The result is a repaired property protected against rising damp. Injections are the most reliable and effective solution against rising damp in Torrox.
