Damp Proofing Fulham
Fulham is a large town in Central London and has a rich industrial and entrepreneurial history, dating all the way back to the 15th century. With brewing and tapstry-making and, later, automotive, aviation and more brewing! It’s been a trading hub for centuries. These days it’s perhaps best known for Fulham FC and it’s vast array of different houses. London Damp Specialists have been damp proofing Fulham since 1981, making us leading experts for remedial treatments in Fulham and Central London.
Fulham saw it’s period of most rigorous building development in the 19th century – although many buildings were lost in World War II bombings. It means that Fulham is home to a huge number of older buildings, particularly low-rise buildings. The majority of these were not have been built for the 21st century lifestyle.
With washing machines, tumble dryers, dishwashers, modern kettles, hot showers and more, the 21st century lifestyle doesn’t suit the way homes and properties were built in Fulham. Therefore, a large number of houses and buildings will suffer from damp and condensation.

Rising and Penetrating Damp
There are two varieties of damp that affect homes in Fulham: rising and penetrating damp. Rising damp is the most common variety and describes the process whereby moisture infiltrates a wall from below. Damp from the ground is pulled up through cracks and holes in brickwork and into the property’s material.
Penetrating damp, on the other hand, is caused when moisture is pulled into the material via an external source that isn’t the ground below. This could be earth surrounding walls in the case of basements and cellars, leaking guttering or damaged window sills that leak water onto the wall.
London Damp Specialists can provide treatment for both varieties. We are damp proofing Fulham experts, so simply get in touch. We’ll send out a qualified member of the team to provide you with a completely free survey.
Woodworm can affect almost any property and is the collective name for a group of insects that live in wood, using it as food. Over time, they completely destroy wood, including floorboards (often hidden beneath your flooring), beams and other timber in your home. They can pose a serious threat to the structural integrity of buildings.
Dry and Wet Rot
Dry and wet rot are caused by different varieties of fungi. Wet rot is the more common of the two and is often found under floorboards. Wet rot is destructive and needs to be dealt with as soon as you notice it, but it is nothing compared to dry rot. Dry rot devours timber and spreads quickly. If you suspect you have a problem with rot, you should call us immediately.
