The Importance Of Damp Proofing Your Home

Damp proofing Pretoria by HydrostopSA

Damp proofing your home is vital for any property that is at risk for constant dampness. When damp infiltrates your home’s foundation it starts deteriorating at a rapid rate. It can also cause mold growth as well as a mite infestation which can compromise the health of your family. The best solution is to damp proof your home to free it from any kind of excess moisture.

Benefits of damp proofing

  • It keeps your home in good condition, inside and out
  • It keeps your family healthy. (Excess mildew and bacteria are triggers for people with respiratory illnesses such as bronchitis and asthma.)
  • It gets rid of years and years of residual moisture
  • Your plaster and paint will last much longer

Damp proofing process

  • Plaster is stripped from your affected wall
  • Apply two coats of a quality crystalline damp proofing product to exposed brickwork.
  • Walls are re-plastered and once dry it’s repainted back to the original colour
