Rising damp ?
Rising Damp : a plague on your property... and a scourge on your health !
Building materials absorb moisture according to their degree of porosity and permeability. Contact with groundwater and / or damp earth causes capillary rise. You must absolutely protect your property from rising damp.
Moisture of capillary rise can often be identified without the use of professional equipment; Just look and touch your walls.

How mould and humidity can affect your health
Humidity, mould and mildew in your property are aggravating factors for respiratory problems, including allergies, infections, asthma, and immune system problems.
Black mould produces allergens (substances that can cause an allergic reaction), irritants and sometimes toxic substances. Inhalation or contact with mould spores can cause allergic reactions, such as sneezing, runny noses, red eyes, and rashes. The presence of mould in your property can also cause asthma attacks for those susceptible.
Those who are most at risk are:
babies and children
people with existing skin problems, such as eczema
people with respiratory problems, such as allergies and asthma
people with weakened immune systems
