Rising Damp

Rising damp is often found in older houses, especially the Victorian terraces especially those with basements or cellars which are common across South West London, Balham, Clapham, Tooting and Wandsworth. The high levels of clay that is a feature of the soil in the London area make it especially prevalent in the city.

Rising damp is when groundwater rises up and penetrates the walls and floor of your property.

Indicators of rising damp include mould or damp at the lower levels of your home such as the basement and at floor level, damp, musty-smelling or mouldy carpets and tide lines of damp on walls.

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is when water enters the walls of your property causing numerous aesthetic and structural problems for your building and potential health problems for you.

If you notice the problems such as damp patches on external walls or internal walls and if your house remains unusually cold after rain you likely have a penetrating damp problem.

This is a problem we see a lot of in period properties such as the Victorian houses across Tooting, Clapham, Wandsworth and Balham as the brickwork, guttering and downpipes are older and potentially not functioning as they should.

At RBS damp proofing we are experts in detecting the source of the water entering your home and years of experience in sealing the routes that are letting in the water and damp proofing the property to provide protection against damp for the coming years. 


It is reported that 1 in 5 homes in the UK suffers from condensation damp problems. Condensation is the most common form of damp we treat at RBS dampproofing and happens when water vapour meets a cold surface.

It is especially common in cities such as London when people are reluctant to keep windows open for a variety of reasons and when older, period houses aren’t adequately insulated.

It can commonly be treated (if caught early) with simple solutions involving improved ventilation and insulation unless the damp has caused other problems.
