Rising damp is never a cause and rising damp is a consequence of a third cause.

You can almost never determine with 100% where rising damp is coming from.

The biggest cause of rising damp is inadequate waterproofing at ground level.

You can also think of other causes that cause rising damp.

How about a broken water pipe in the wall?

Or driving rain through an outer wall?

I want to say that you get rising damp because of these things.

It is important how you solve this rising damp.

If you approach the source of the water or damp, you will see that your rising damp disappears.

Rising damp with inner wall-dry aquaplan.

If you are sure that no pipes are broken in your wall or that there are no leaks from your outer wall, there is a solution for rising damp.

Aqua plan has a product made for this, with an appropriate name: interior wall-dry.

This product is environmentally friendly and makes a waterproof film on your wall so that moisture and water can no longer escape.

The properties of interior wall-dry are vapour-permeable, odorless and solvent-free.

Interior wall-dry penetrates deeply into the substrate and anchors itself in the pores.

Thus, a film is formed between the concrete and/or stucco and the layer to be applied, such as wallpaper, latex, etc.

After applying this product you can apply a layer of wallpaper or a latex paint after 24 hours.

You don’t have to worry about the price.

You can buy this interior wall-dry in regular hardware stores for € 14.95.

For this you need 0.75 liters.

In addition, you can also buy the product per 2.5 liters.

Have you ever used this yourself?

Or do you know people who have used this?

Then let me know by leaving a comment so we can share this together.

Thanks in advance.
