Dampness is one of the most commonly reported causes of building defects in the UK. Many surveys carried out within homes across the nation have recorded the enormity of the ever increasing problems related to moisture ingress.
Misdiagnosis of these reported problems is widespread, a problem in its own right affecting both public and private housing sectors alike. Failing to identify and correctly diagnose the true nature of the problem can cause further damage to the building, poor living conditions and in many instances legal actions taken by occupants in tenanted properties.

It is imperative when investigating for specific sources of moisture, for example rising damp, to eliminate all other potential sources of water ingress. Therefore it is essential that a full investigation is undertaken. In the event that the other sources of moisture are suspected to be attributing to the problem, these must first be eliminated and upon doing so further assessment would be recommended.
