Rising damp can be a common issue for homeowners, and is often noticed by tide marks appearing on internal or external walls. Rising damp is caused by moisture from the ground travelling up through the brickwork.

Is rising damp serious?
With any damp issue, it's important to get the issue fixed quickly in order to prevent any long-lasting damage to your home. Rising damp in particular can be a problem for your home's structural integrity and if not rectified, can also cause damage to the flooring and plaster work in your home - making the job much bigger and more expensive.
Can rising damp occur on internal walls?
Whilst rising damp on internal walls is less common, it is still possible. Usually, you will start to notice tide marks on your external walls. If you do notice such marks, you should contact a damp proofing specialist for further advice on diagnosis.
