Structural dampness is the presence of unwanted moisture in the structure of a building. A significant percentage of damp problems in homes are caused by condensation, rain penetration or rising damp.

Effects of Structural Damp

Dampness is most likely to do secondary damage to a building. The unwanted moisture enables the growth of a variety of fungi in wood, resulting in rot or mould, these can result in health conditions and will inevitably lead to ‘sick building syndrome’.

Typical effects of structural damp include:

  • Plaster and paint degrade
  • Wallpaper becomes loose
  • Stains from water, salts and mould mark surface areas
  • Concentrations of air-borne mould that once inhaled can lead to serious health effects on people and household pets
  • External mortar and brickwork may crumble
  • Indoor air quality could become very poor which in turn can cause respiratory sickness in residents
  • Excess moisture leads to growth of microbes such as mould, fungi and bacteria which subsequently emit spores, cells and volatile organic compound in to the indoor air.
