28 Apr Discover what types of humidity can appear in your home
Although it may seem that all damp that appears in the home is the same, the truth is that there are several different types of humidity. Each one has a different origin, and requires specific anti-humidity treatment with different products and techniques. This is Humilogic job: to know and identify the type of humidity that is causing problems in your home in order to apply the specific solution that will eliminate it for good.
Specifically, there are three types of dampness: dampness by capillarity, by condensation or by filtration.
Dampness due to capillarity, condensation and filtration
Dampness by capillarity is one of the most common types of humidity. Its origin lies in the earth on which the house is built, which gets wet when it rains or when there are water deposits in the subsoil. The capillaries in the bricks or cement act as a sponge for this water and this is when dampness occurs. Here the definitive solution for humidity is to inject the affected walls with waterproofing resins based on silanes and siloxanes.
Dampness by condensation is another type of humidity that usually occurs in houses on the coast. The origin is a humid environment that condenses in the upper areas of the house until it turns into water. To eliminate the humidity we install Mechanical Ventilation by Insufflation that constantly renews the air, first filtering it and then heating it.
Finally, there is dampness due to filtration. This type of humidity tends to appear in basements and garages, as it is caused by wet soil in contact with buried or semi-buried walls. To remove this humidity, we waterproof the inside of the walls with fibre and hydropoxy resin mortars.
