Rising Damp (also known as salt damp) is moisture from the ground that migrates up a brick/masonry wall by a force known as ‘capillary action’. The moisture brings with it salts and minerals from the ground that can cause the deterioration of decorative surfaces and the break down of structural components in a masonry structure including renders and mortars.
The most common factors that can cause rising damp include; the absence or poor condition of a Damp Proof Course (DPC), plumbing issues (e.g. storm water systems), or bridging from raised garden beds, concrete slabs or pathways. In many cases, the most effective method to stop rising damp is to install a new DPC to block the migration of moisture up a masonry wall.
