What is capillary damp?

What is capillary damp and how can you recognize it?

Where capillary damp occurs most often

Rising damp is most common in older buildings built at a time when builders were not aware of waterproof materials such as bitumen and the like. Also, old buildings are often built without foundations, directly on the ground. Examples of such buildings are houses, cathedrals, palaces and other historical buildings.

Capillary damp can also appear in newer buildings, where waterproofing was installed during construction.
