First of all, it is important to note that any dampness problem has a solution, and does not necessarily have to be a complicated or expensive one.

Humidity is naturally present in the air we breathe, even the driest environments contain a certain degree of moisture. Humidity begins to become a problem if the relative humidity is less than 20% or if it is greater than 80%, owing to the fact that optimal humidity is between 30 % and 60%.

The source of dampness in your home is probably the lack of, or incorrect waterproofing between the walls and the foundation (the base where the whole house is supported) and / or the lack of ventilation (in the last 30 years the building of houses has been too airtight).

There are three different types of dampness:

Dampness caused by filtration

Dampness caused by filtration, is usually located on buried or semi-buried walls, such as basements or garages.

Dampness caused by capillarity

Dampness caused by capillarity, is shown with spots on the walls and peeling paint on the bottom of the walls.

Dampness caused by Condensation

Dampness caused by Condensation, is shown with mold stains on the walls or when the windows appear wet.
