What do I do about damp in my home?

Damp, or penetrating damp, is when water from outside your home finds its way inside. It can happen at all levels of a building, but is more common higher up and on south-west facing walls.

Penetrating damp can be caused by roof leaks, plumbing leaks or building defects.

Signs of damp

  • Growing circles of damp on walls or ceilings
  • Blotchy patches on walls
  • Wet and crumbly plaster
  • Signs of mildew
  • Drips and puddles

Possible locations of damp

  • Rising up internal walls at low level
  • Ceilings
  • Random areas on external walls
