Rising damp occurs when groundwater rises up through walls, floors and masonry. Bricks and mortar can be very porous and contain many fine capillaries, through which water can rise. This can result in visible damp patches, salt-contamination and crumbling plaster on interior walls.
Most modern properties are built with a damp-proof course, commonly referred to as a DPC. Some properties, however, were built with no DPC, or the original has failed, meaning that rising damp can occur and it is necessary to make remedial repairs.
The Dryzone System range of products is designed to enable you to eliminate rising damp in these situations and renovate the interior walls that have been effected by it. Each product in the Dryzone System range is part of a system designed to enable the user to solve the problem of rising damp from start to finish.
