1. Material disintegration and destruction
Damp moves up through the walls, carrying with it dissolved salts and nitrates to the wall surface. When the damp evaporates and dries, the salts remain and crystallize. Since crystallizing voltages are one of the strongest in nature, the pressure that is then created causes great damage.
The water in the wall changes its aggregate state. Frost in winter, and steam in summer, which occur and exchange each other in the structure, result in constant slow destruction of the structure, i.e. delamination of the wall.
2. Unpleasant smell of dampness
The smell of damp in the room is actually the smell of stagnant and rotten water in the walls.
Stagnant water evaporates from the walls into the space, where it carries bacteria and fungi with it, which saturates the space and increases atmospheric humidity.
3. Health risk
Spaces affected by capillary damp are usually unpleasant to stay in or stay for any length of time.
People with respiratory problems sometimes cannot stay in such conditions. Capillary damp creates a health risk, and people who stay in rooms with capillary damp first experience a decline in immunity and the development of allergic and immune reactions, the onset of asthma and other diseases.
