Cause
The Short Way To A Dry Cellar

The causes of a damp cellar are many and varying, ranging from neglected insulation, especially in historical buildings to rotting insulation materials or constructional errors. The result is that, regardless of the cause, as soon as the cellar walls are subject to soil moisture, the process of decay begins and the future use and value of the cellar will become more and more limited.

This doesnīt have to mean that all the insulating material is defect, as moisture is able to force itself through even the smallest cracks on the outer surface. This is where the trouble starts! 

Water posesses the devcilish ability to seep in any direction. As if it isnīt enough, it also transports soluble mineral salt.

This moisture distrubutes itself through the capillaries in the walls until it has reached the inner surface of the cellar, where it creates a mouldy, mildewy, unhealthy climate and where the salt crystallizes and causes the plaster to lift.

Until now, damaged cellars have been abandoned rather than sanitized due to the cost of conventional sanitation methods, for example, excavation, drainage and insulation.
 

BIOSAL CELLAR INSULATION is revolutionary and offers an economical alternative as to how a damp cellar can be quickly, easily and permanently sanitised. Areas of application range from uncomplicated cases where the present insulation is defect, to the more serious presence of pressure water, for example on lakes.
