What is Rising Damp?

Rising damp occurs when the groundwater rises up through the floors and walls as it tries to evaporate.

It generally occurs in older buildings, leading to a growth in mould.

AQUAPOL’s innovative technology causes the water to flow downwards, dehydrating the wall and eliminating the problem.

How does Aquapol Work?

1. Wall diagnosis before installation.

2. Aquapol device installation.

3. Further monitoring until completion of drying process.

4. Technical advice on other actions or renovations.

5. Final result successfully achieved.

6. Guaranteed for a full 20 years.


Rising damp occurs when water cannot evaporate properly from soil. This is often due to a combination of rainy weather and lack of ventilation, drainage, or porosity below the floor.

The most common sign of rising damp is having tide marks on the affected walls. Tide marks usually resemble wet or decaying patches and can rise approximately 1 metre above the floor. Other signs can include peeling wallpaper or mould. The AQUAPOL system re-transmits energy to change the direction of the flow of moisture, keeping you walls dry long term.

The treatment of rising damp varies depending on the underlying cause. Our team of AQUAPOL professionals will conduct a thorough damage test to find the source of the problem and determine the best way to fix the damage. Solutions can include replacing or adding a Damp Proof Course to prevent further damage occurring.

If left untreated, rising damp can encourage the growth of mould which has unpleasant implications for the health of you and your family. Breathing in mould spores can cause anyone suffering from asthma or allergies to have a negative reaction with symptoms of irritation or restricted breathing. Occasionally, people may have more severe reactions requiring emergency treatment. In some cases, breathing in mould spores can also result in a lung infection requiring treatment from a doctor or health professional.
