What Is Basement Tanking?
When it comes to dampproofing your home, basement tanking is just one of the processes that can help to protect your home from dampness and mould. Basement tanking is the process of sealing your walls to defend internal surfaces from water.
This process, which should be a commonplace stage of all damp proofing work, helps to ensure that your property is protected from mould for years to come. The first step, however, is to keep vigilant for signs of damp in your home.
The most common signs of damp are:
- A musty, damp smell.
- Dark or discoloured patches on walls or wallpaper.
- The appearance of mould or mildew on floors or walls.
- Walls, floors or ceilings that feel cold or wet.
- Lifting or peeling of wallpaper.
Our team at City Dampcoursing are experts in protecting properties from the structural damage that damp can cause. If you detect the signs of damp, we can ensure that your walls are repaired and protected, so the issue won’t re-occur.
