    How do I know if I have rising damp?

    Specialists

    How do I know if I have rising damp in my lounge? I noticed my external walls are quite cold the touch and I have started to see mould along one wall in the lounge where it appears to be damp.

    "You would require a specialist to carry out a series of damp readings to determine If you have rising damp"

    "Hello,

    If you have rising damp the active mould growth will not growth above 1.5/2.0m up the internal wall from ground level, this usually develops when the DPM (damp proof membrane is failing).

    Thanks
