Why Waterproof / Damp proof Your Home/Building ?
Presence of any unwanted moisture content in the structure of a building; either intrusion from outside or condensation from within the structure is known as dampness. In order to maintain a good condition and value for your property and also avoid a number of health hazards associated with it, damp proofing is absolutely essential. Once dampness seeps in your property, it is very difficult and expensive to manage the damage. Hence waterproofing or dampproofing your property is very important.
Some of the ill effects of water seepage and dampness are;
- Peeling or deterioration of the plaster, paint and wallpaper
- Rotting of wood and rusting of steel and iron fasteners
- Crumbling mortar and bricks
- Damp Floor and carpet
- Falling tiles
It can also cause serious health problems like infections, asthma, allergenic or immunological illness and other nonallergic illness because of the pollution in the indoor air due to access moisture.
Need for Waterproofing and Dampproofing
Dampness can be caused due to a number of factors.
- Penetrating damp in which water enters the structure of a building though a weak point, like penetrable bricks, broken roof tile or gaps in window frames.
- Rising damp – this is when water content from the earth slowly rises upwards through various building materials and thus entering the structure of the building.
- Condensation – the condensed air in our home soon become little droplets of water which usually accumulate in the corners of window frames and other cold surfaces. General household activities like bathing and cooking also cause condensation at home.
