The problem of moisture by capillary
The capillary is a form of humidity rising damp resulting physical phenomenon called capillarity. The capillary is a property that the fluids are moving up the inside of small diameter capillary tubes or reaching variable heights. In nature, the phenomenon is very common and it is through it that the plants can take water and nutrients from the roots to the leaves
The moisture by capillary or ascension affects many homes in Portugal, causing problems of unaesthetic stains, saltpeter, mold and destruction of materials. The moisture may reach a variable height in the house, in some cases, can reach 1.5 to 2 meters, although the most common is the impact on lower parts of the walls.
The water may come directly from the subsoil containing dissolved salts and when the water evaporates these salts are deposited in a continuous process that cause degradation of several construction materials such as plaster, stucco, timber, the painting among others.
