How does Anti damp paint work Know it all here! How does Anti damp paint work Know it all here!

In order to fix a wall with humidity, first of all it is necessary to determine the causes that caused it. Dampness due to filtration, condensation or capillarity?

Based on this diagnosis you will have to choose the correct anti-humidity treatment. If you are unable to identify it, it will be time for a consultation.

Always remember: painting directly on a wall with damp does not solve anything. If the origin is not corrected, the only thing we will manage to do is to delay its reappearance for a while.


We can say that anti-humidity paints by themselves are useless if what we want is to eliminate the problem of humidity that we have at home, but that does not mean that they are useless.


 If, for example, these damp spots come from a problem that has already been solved, we can use this paint to eliminate that consequence.


Similarly, this anti-humidity paint will have a greater protection effect against water vapour in the environment, which can be interesting. But what it will not achieve is to eliminate the problem of humidity in the rooms of the house.


In order to eliminate the humidity, instead of concentrating only on the use of damp-proof paints, we should opt for better air circulation and avoid sources that emit water vapour into the air. To do this, mechanical ventilation systems are the best solution as they can achieve real air renewal, especially by extracting moisture-laden air from bathrooms and kitchens.


A practical tip to find out if the wall is still damp:


Stick a 10 x 10 cm piece of metallic paper on the wall (with tape). Leave it for a whole day and remove it the next day. If the part that was in contact with the wall is dry, you can paint it. If not..., be patient and keep trying.


If we simply paint the damp stains on the walls we will solve that particular problem, the damp stained wall. But we will not eliminate the focus of the problem, which is the uncirculated moisture laden air. It would be like having a small puncture in your car's tire that causes it to deflate very gradually and opting simply to fill the tire with air: in the end the problem would return but don’t worry, we have hope!
