Dampness inside homes is a real scourge that needs to be dealt with properly. Dampness causes a great deal of damage in the home, weakening the structure of buildings and causing aesthetic damage to walls. The presence of damp in walls can also lead to the appearance of saltpetre and mould, which are dangerous to health. What’s more, the presence of damp in a home leads to higher energy consumption, so it’s in your interest to limit its presence in the walls.
In a poorly insulated home with a water-logged environment, damp can appear in a number of ways:
Capillary damp is undoubtedly the most damaging type of damp in a home. When the soil is very watery, poorly sealed and porous walls will suck up the water present in the soil and gorge themselves with moisture. It is therefore more difficult to treat this problem, as the entire thickness of the material is affected.
Dampness in walls is a major problem, but fortunately there are solutions available to professionals to combat it effectively. The Groupe Berkem offers a whole range of products to treat damp and all the problems it causes: the Xilix Blockaqua range, the Xilix Blockaqua range and the Xilix Blockaqua range.
The Groupe Berkem offers the Xilix Blockaqua range for effective moisture control. These products create continuous, watertight barriers. These formulas are developed using silane/siloxane resins and are injected directly into the heart of walls affected by damp.
This range of products can be used whatever the nature and thickness of the wall to be treated.
To further protect walls, Groupe Berkem also offers a range of complementary products to protect walls against damp. These products are applied to the outside of walls, unlike the previous products.
This complementary range of products provides optimum effectiveness against damp in walls. Ideally, Blockaqua products should be combined as required.
