Damp Floors and Walls (above ground)

The basic symptoms of damp, e.g. peeling paint / wallpaper, are largely the same regardless of the cause of dampness. However, different causes of dampness require different methods of treatment so it is essential to correctly diagnose the cause of dampness before treatment begins.

The best way to gain the knowledge required to carry out such a diagnosis would be to attend one of our training courses. However, a brief description of how to carry out a survey for dampness is contained in our free publication, "Rising Damp and its Control" which can be downloaded from this page in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format.
