Rising Damp

The causes of moisture in homes is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the most vulnerable places, such as the foundations of a house. It is groundwater, rainfall.

Another reason for the formation of moisture in walls and foundations is leaky horizontal and vertical insulation in a building. Often leaky horizontal insulation is called “capillary rising of moisture from the ground.” The most susceptible to this phenomenon are materials in which the pores of the material form narrow channels and “capillaries” – it is mainly building ceramics. Symptoms of capillary rising of moisture are difficult to recognize because the transport of moisture can reach a height of several meters.
