Before any treatment of damp problems is considered, the source of dampness must first be identified. It is important to thoroughly examine walls and fix leaking gutters, cracks in brickwork and other issues which might be the cause of dampness. If such sources of water ingress have been ruled-out as the source of dampness, buildings should be examined for signs of rising damp, penetrating damp, and condensation.
When considering the treatment of damp, attention should be paid not only to different methods of damp treatment, but also to products used to treat the damp related problem. Safeguard offer a full range of products for treating the source of dampness and treating damp issues, such as mould growth, efflorescence and visible damp patches on walls.
