White Chalky Substance on Walls
Known as efflorescence, this is a chemical breakdown of the bonding agent that holds your walls together. This is a sign of possible structural deterioration.
This is the result of the decay process from mould, mildew, and dry rot.
Mould and/or Mildew
You’ll find mould and mildew occurs when fungus grows in damp, dark areas causing discolouration, musty smells and odours.
Damp Spots on Walls
This is a sign that water has been absorbed through the foundation walls. Block/concrete will have dark grey splotches in various places.
This occurs when dark brown/black fungus growth on walls and other surfaces, but mostly on wooden surfaces, causing decay.
Moisture will cause panelling to bow and discolour, commonly at the bottom portion of the panelling.
This is a clear sign of moisture in the wall, as paint will not stick to a wet surface.
Visible cracks in your walls could be a sign that the foundation has moved/shifted. These should be professionally inspected to determine the exact cause.
