Penetrating Damp in rooms or areas below ground level is typically caused by rain or other water sources landing on the ground and seeping through the surface and on to the bricks of the building below ground level. In the same way as described in the section Penetrating Damp, water will penetrate the brick and rooms below ground can become very wet… Even unusably wet. Don’t worry!!!
We can dry out almost every cellar, bunker, or subterranean room with the use of various permanent treatments. This is much like building a swimming pool but in reverse. I have built a swimming pool and three subterranean rooms that are available for any potential client to view and critique. All three of the rooms are well below the water table and yet are as dry as any normal house room. Different treatments can be discussed at the survey stage.
