Do you have dampness and don’t want them to spread all over the walls and ceilings of your house? Before finding solutions to dampness you need to know which are the 3 types of damp that can appear in your home.
This kind of damp is characterized by the climbing from the foundations to the walls and interior walls by the phenomenon of capillarity (or capillary rises) which different materials have such as bricks and concrete blocks. All this water will make the paint and other coatings peel, even if they are damp-proof.
If not controlled in time, it can destabilize the foundations of your home or building and create a risk for the entire building and the people who inhabit it. In addition to this, as there is more damp in the environment, paint will keep peeling and you will spend more money on heating.

It is one of the most common causes produced by our daily activities such as cooking, showering or ironing. This added to the lack of ventilation produces condensation and mold on the walls and ceilings.
As if this were not enough, with the excess of environmental humidity there will proliferate mites and fungi. So if you are allergic or have a related disease you need to remove moisture immediately.
This type of indoor dampness is common in places below ground level such as garages, basements, cellars or any other kind of underground room. On this occasion the damp comes from the water present in the side walls, where it infiltrates into the interior.
Like all other causes, this kind of damp seriously compromises the stability and safety of the building and electrical installations.
Capillarity moisture is one of the most common causes of wet masonry.
