Damp proofing Your Home Is One Of The Most Critical Things You Can Do. Here’s why

A home that is susceptible to constant dampness needs to be damp-proofed. The foundation of your home starts deteriorating at a rapid rate when moisture enters it. Excess moisture in your home can also cause mould growth and mite infestations, which can compromise your family’s health. The most effective solution is to damp-proof it, so it is free of moisture.

  • Your family will be healthier. (Mildew and bacteria can trigger respiratory illnesses such as bronchitis and asthma.
  • The residual moisture that has accumulated over the years is removed.

How to Protect Your Home Against Damp

  • During this process, the plaster on your affected wall is stripped away
  • Holes are drilled at the base of every level of your home
  • The holes are injected with a chemical and allowed to absorb it for some time
