Dampness in Buildings
Excess water /moisture in all its forms (vapour, liquid, and flooding) is still the most common problem in housing. It results in visible wetting of walls, ceilings and floors, blistering paint, bulging plaster, sulfate attack on brickwork and mould on surfaces and fabrics, usually accompanied by a musty smell. It can also lead to less obvious problems, e.g. thermal insulation is reduced in effectiveness or brickwork cracks because metal components embedded to corrode.
Successful treatment can only be achieved if the type of dampness is correctly diagnosed. The complexity of existing homes and buildings means that dampness is very often misdiagnosed, leading to future damp problems, cost and disruption to the occupants.
There are four main types of damp found in buildings.
Water vapour is produced as a result of the normal building usage and will move freely around the building and may condense on surfaces or within the fabric of the building.
Rising ground moisture is normally associated with missing or ineffective damp-proof courses or damp-proof membranes.
It can also result from bridging of these defences by earth or groundworks externally, or by thermal bridging through the structure.
Falling covers those items relating to roof and abutment features Houston (2016).
