I would be really grateful for any advice regarding ?rising damp and condensation.
We live in a Victorian house and the wall underneath thedownstairs bay window is apparently saturated. We have been advised by a "Damp Proof Company" that the area outside is too high - this needs to be lowered and a new damp proof course installed. We have been advised that this can be done from the outside to avoid disruption but I thought this was best carried out on the inside of the property. Is this correct?
The other problem with have is condensation in various rooms, the worst affected being our bedroom. We have removed a wardrobe from the outside wall as this was making the mould much worse and I am now in the process of redecorating.
Is there a particular product I can use to treat the mould and prevent it returning, and is there a product that can be used on the adjoining (cold) wall to get rid of the crystal salts.
I appreciate the need to remove the overall humidity of the house and are in the process of having extractor fans installed in the bedroom and kitchen.
I am at the end of my tether with all this. I would be so grateful for your help.
