Rising Damp in buildings is caused by water in the ground rising up through bricks and mortar by capillary action. Unless treated, dampness can cause wood rot and corrosion to cavity wall ties and also affect our health (increases the risk of respiratory illness in homes).

The usual maximum height it can rise to in walls is 1 metre depending on the masonry types and outside ground levels. Rising damp manifests itself as a horizontal tide mark, below which there will be discolouration, patches, peeling wallpaper and possibly white salt stains which have been drawn out of the brickwork by the water.

Archers uses several alternative systems and solutions for curing and preventing rising damp. One of the most effective and economical is achieved by injecting under pressure a silicone based chemical into the wall through a series of small holes. When it dries, a water-repellent barrier is left within the wall. It is ususally necessary to remove some of the internal plaster contaminated with salts from the rising damp and reinstate with a salt resistant plaster which will allow the moisture in the wall to dry out naturally.
