How can the OsmoDry® system help me?
The OsmoDry® system solves problems related to damp walls and mould on walls. It non-invasively dehumidifies walls and prevents the formation of mould in places where moisture could appear sooner or later.
Where can the system be used?
OsmoDry® is suitable for family houses, holiday homes, recreational buildings, public facilities, industrial buildings, churches / all listed buildings.
It is ideal for the following types of wall: brick masonry, stone masonry, bricks, concrete structures and combined - mixed masonry.
It provides a great help to a construction’s ground floor and basements.
Our device is based on a phenomenon called Osmo technology. The device generates electromagnetic pulses which operates on a damp building. The generated electromagnetic field affects water molecules inside the walls and pushes them down, back into the soil. Our device works on the principles of Osmo technology, the most advanced type of active damp reducing technology.
What is Osmo technology?
Osmo technology is a phenomenon used for non-invasive and electrode-free masonry drying. This device pushes water back into the soil and eliminates your wall moisture. Don’t worry, Osmo technology isn’t harmful, the electromagnetic field has no effect upon human health and it is completely harmless for living organisms.
What is rising damp?
Rising damp happens when groundwater rises up through walls, floors and masonry using capillary actions. Water can rise to up to 900mm depending on the type of masonry and water level. It can often lead to damaged masonry, peeling plaster and an unhealthy environment for home dwellers.
Rising damp is more common in older buildings than new ones because damp-proof precautions were not required on walls until 1875 and in floors until the 1960's. Damp can also be a problem if the ground level surrounding your home has risen or undulates.
How can I tell if I’ve got rising damp?
Salt deposits from creeping damp leave tell-tale signs such as horizontal tide-marks that discolour plasterwork underneath. Moist patches and staining can be evident on floors. You may also notice wallpaper peeling and/or paint flaking. Rising damp can leave a smell or musty odour and the bottom of a wall will normally have a reduced temperature. If you are unsure call us to arrange a free, no strings attached survey.
Things to look for: - peeling wallpaper - mould on walls - tide marks inside and outside - damp stains above skirting boards - raised floorboards - smell
Will the installation of an OsmoDry® device require any interior construction?
The installation of an OsmoDry® device does not require any interior building work. However, it might be necessary to replace plaster on walls damaged by damp and mould.
How much does the annual operation of a device cost?
The electrical consumption of one OsmoDry® device costs approximately £10.00 per year.
What happens if an OsmoDry® device doesn’t solve my problem?
