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.
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.
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 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.
