A chemical barrier of DPC (damp proof course) is injected into the walls, preventing moisture from passing into interior spaces. There are many signs available to suggest your property may be suffering from rising damp. If left
untreated, it is serious and can cause structural damage to your property, damp can also be very detrimental to your health and is extremely unhealthy to live with. At the first sign of dampness, a specialist should be contacted to resolve any issues safely and efficiently. Look out for the following signs to make sure you can treat rising damp as soon as it appears:
- Flaky or Bubbling Plaster
- Rotting Window Frames, Floorboards, or Skirting Boards
- Wallpaper That Lifts
- Damp or Wet Patches Appearing on the Walls
- Rusting Steel and Iron Fasteners
- Crumbling Mortar between Bricks or Stonework on the Exterior of the Building
- Stains or Tidemarks on Walls
- Paint Won't Adhere to the Walls
A Two-Part Treatment
The DPC we inject is a concentrated thixotropic silane/siloxane cream that forms a barrier against rising damp. A silane vapour is released as the cream diffuses. This reacts with the silica in the masonry, forming a water-repellent resin. As there is no liquid or pressure involved in the treatment, the walls will dry quickly saving you unnecessary stress and time.
The DPC injection is just the first part of the treatment. The second involves re-plastering the walls with sand and a cement render that incorporates a waterproofing additive. This reduces the migration of salt from the wall to the surface of the plaster. Thanks to this double protection, you can rest assured that you will no longer suffer from a rising damp problem.
Aftercare and Advice
CPM Waterproofing Services Ltd is committed to helping our customers, and we will never leave a job half done. That is why we make you aware that the walls may still contain a considerable amount of residual water after the insertion of the chemical damp proof course. This will need to dry out naturally. Although the general rule is that one inch of water dries out a month, this will differ for each wall. If you need more information on how to protect your walls, contact us today!
