When left untreated, rising damp can cause a wide variety of health issues, such as respiratory conditions. However, at No 1 Home, we can provide a range of solutions to eliminate this problem from your home in Bournemouth. Rising damp can be treated by chemical injection, a very reliable form and in most cases the fastest and most cost-effective solution.
We will begin by drilling holes, making sure the holes are near to the ground level of the affected walls. After drilling, we will inject the solution. Chemical injection barriers use water repellent technology to form a highly effective horizontal barrier through the masonry, preventing moisture rising.
If a conventional chemical treatment is not appropriate for your property, an alternative treatment solution can be applied. The Electro-Osmotic System introduces a very small electric current into the wall just above ground level. This reverses the process of rising damp by repelling the rising water from the wall and back into the ground, allowing the walls to stay dry.
Once a treatment has been installed for your rising damp, Bournemouth residents can trust us to remove any salt contaminated plaster. We will then apply new plaster, which contains a special salt-retardant additive. This stops residual salts migrating into the new wall plaster while still allowing the walls to breathe.
