In Aughton, damp proofer Ray Betts is able to spot, diagnose and apply treatment to all cases of rising damp within a home or office. Rising damp, as the name suggests, is a condition in which moisture rises from the ground up through the walls to a height of about one metre. This rising moisture can result in softening plaster, lifting wallpaper, stained decoration, fungi and mold. Rising damp can also affect concrete floors. If left untreated, the rising damp will spread throughout a property causing timber decay, damage to plaster and brickwork, and general structure damage.

If you have not reached out to a damp proofer in Aughton in time, and your walls have started to show signs of dry and wet rot, Ray Betts can help you out. These two types of rot can cause a significant amount of damage to timber structures, with dry rot being the far more dangerous fungi of the two. If left untreated, dry rot can spread as fast as 80mm a day, and spread through masonry as well, reaching timber on the other side of a thick wall. Ray Betts’s approach involves special preservation fluids that are brushed, sprayed or applied in gel and paste form, and, where masonry is involved, the drilling, irrigation and spraying of the surface to ensure a full treatment.
