Damp proofing is the generic term typically used to describe the installation of preventative measures to stop damp problems occurring within our home.
However, it is not necessary the right term to describe the actual type of damp affecting the property and often the wrong term used to describe the right damp treatment needed to rectify a damp issue. There are many different causes of damp within our homes, not just rising damp (the type of damp often associated with damp proofing).
Although most damp issues are much less serious than they actually look, whatever the cause, damp can be bad for our health and the health of our property.
