Treating Rising Damp

Treating rising damp can be a tricky task to take on independently. This is why we provide specialist rising damp solutions that are covered by a 30-year guarantee which can be passed on to future owners of the property.

  • Rising Damp Survey - Through experience and knowledge of damp, a Rentokil surveyor will carry out the most appropriate rising damp treatment for your property, which will include the installation of a damp proof course (DPC).

  • Installation of Damp Proofing - Dependant on the thickness of walls, holes are drilled in the mortar/brick of external and internal walls to a pre-determined depth and at the correct level and spacing between holes. These holes are then injected with a low odour water based silicone damp proofing fluid (damp proof course) to reduce the movement of water through the capillaries.

  • Damp Proofing Rod - Rentokil's damp proofing rod system is a high strength, liquid free, alternative to regular rising damp treatment methods. These damp proofing rods are inserted into holes in the masonry without the need for an injection pump. As large amounts of fluid are not added to an already wet wall, the time it takes for the wall to dry is substantially reduced. This then allows quicker re-plastering and re-decoration. Also there is no risk of fluid spillage's which reduces the risk of damage to carpets or flooring.

  • Re-plastering - Once our team has completed treating your home for rising damp our technician will ensure any treated walls are re-plastered. Re-plastering includes: 

    • A dense sand and cement render as a backing coat incorporating a waterproof additive. 
    • Application of a gypsum skim coat to give a smooth finish.

How to Treat Rising Damp on Internal Walls

Most property owners identify a rising damp problem when they spot damp patches on their internal walls. Before any treatment for rising damp on internal walls can start, technicians will need to lift skirting boards around the affected area need and remove any plaster that has been contaminated by hydroscopic salts.

The most common treatment for rising damp is a remedial damp proof course and this will often be injected into the brickwork in liquid form. This is a popular rising damp treatment option due to it being both cost-effective and highly targeted.

This form of rising damp treatment should only be undertaken by an experienced damp proofer as it requires a particular level of accuracy to be effective.
