Rising damp is a common problem in older buildings that have not been properly damp proofed. Simply put, rising damp occurs when groundwater rises through porous building materials such as stone, mortar or brick. This often results in telltale 'tide marks' on walls.
Because rising damp can lead to mould and other moisture-related issues, it is important to treat it promptly and effectively.
