Eradicating Rising Salt Damp From Trinity Uniting Church

The Trinity Alberton Uniting Church is located in Alberton, South Australia. In 1880 the foundation stone of the small church was laid by J Formby Esq. For over a century the church has been servicing the community of Alberton and regularly hosts a range of events. This includes church services, as well as services for Christmas, children, youth, parents and babies, English conversation and prayer.  Recently Damp Busters was called to help with eradicating rising salt damp from the structure.

The Trinity Alberton Uniting Church was found with rising salt damp in its 350mm stone walls which needed treatment to prevent further damage to its structure. Damp Busters were on hand to assist in eradicating rising salt damp with the world’s leading rising salt damp eradication system – DRYZONE. The church is just one of 1000’s of buildings we have treated over the years, with 100% success rate. DRYZONE is a superior treatment to others available on the market because it has been formulated to form a super effective damp-proof course in all types of walls. Additionally testing has been done under more conditions than any other rising damp treatment on the market. You can read the reports on our website providing much more detail on the effectiveness of DRYZONE.

Due to being situated in South Australia, the church was prone to rising salt damp is because ofthe hotter, drier climate and higher salinity level in soil. Higher salt levels mean that there are considerable rates of transpiration through the walls, and evaporation out of the walls. The salts that remain on the wall surfaces attract more moisture from the atmosphere and draw the moisture into the wall, contributing to the problem.
