Damp and mould

Other causes of damp

Check the following

  • all accessible plumbing for leaks
  • guttering and down pipes for cracks and blockages, for example, leaves
  • overflows and waste pipes under sinks for leaks
  • possible roof leaks
  • damaged outside walls or eroded pointing
  • high garden or path levels overlapping the damp proof course

This type of damp is called penetrating damp and generally leaves 'tide marks' and mould growth around the area of defect.
