Causes, warning signs, treatment and recruitment of the best water ingress specialist
24th June 2021 – Advanced Damp, the leading moisture specialist in southern England, has updated its website with an informative post on how to treat and prevent water ingress. Also referred to as moisture ingress, water penetration through masonry can become a serious problem if not treated in time. Water infiltration into the walls can compromise the integrity of the structure, thereby leading to expensive repairs and plumbing. It is important to understand water intrusion in detail, look out for warning signs and call the moisture specialist immediately.
Penetrating moisture is a process by which water enters the building, which is an alarming situation for the people living there. Some of the biggest damage could come in the form of fungus, internal wall damage, mold and serious health issues and allergies. There are many ways water can enter the building, and one of the most common ways is through the basement and roof. If any of these signs are visible, or if residents can smell dampness in their homes, they should contact an Advanced Damp moisture protection expert immediately.
Older buildings are particularly at risk because of their old roof system, aged walls and windows, and exposure to excessive rain. Roof leaks, wall cavities, broken wall anchors, etc. must be checked immediately. Water seepage through bricks can also lead to poor roofing. Damaged slate or tiles must be removed immediately. It is best to call the moisture control specialist to have the building checked for water ingress. The other way water can seep through walls is via blocked or faulty gutters, faulty gutters around window frames, flooding, faulty plumbing, rising damp, and entering the basement.
House rot and wet rot on the walls, musty and damp smells in the apartments as well as increased heat loss, damp plaster and water damage inside and outside the property are the most visible signs. Advanced Moisture offers inspection services and during these inspections the team can identify the problematic areas both inside and outside of the structure. A specialist moisture contractor will conduct an investigation and find the main source of water ingress. The damage is then assessed along with the main causes of moisture ingress. Appropriate water entry treatments will be suggested to customers. Once clients agree, the moisture specialists offer customized and effective treatment plans to solve the problem.
