Habari za jioni elders?..natumai mpo salama…I have this problem at my home…how do I sort it permanently?[ATTACH=full]401243[/ATTACH]
Yako ni water seepage. Whats behind the wall bathroom? Kitchen ama ni nje. Check your plans kama kuna piping. Mold is on a different league…dark rooms,moist or unventilated . Hapo exterior waterproofing utafanya on the walls. A waterproof coat will create a barrier to the moisture, and prevent damp walls. Had the same but ilikua from outside.
This is mold.if thats the case ,ondoa watoto,they’ll be prone to asthma ,safisha walls then repaint with mold repellant
First think ni stopping the leak, second thing ni aeration ndio ikauke vizuri, then vile umeambiwa hapo juu
Ahh. Buda. I am not sure how applicable what you have posted to the question. You have pictures of walls made of drywall. He has stone walls. If he had a water leak from the other side, the wood baseboards would be warped. They would be laterally busting off the walls. In fact his wood floors would be warping upwards. Problem of using Bidenstan (Seattle) examples in Kenya.
Scrape the damaged paint. Skim coat the damaged section and paint over.
How many times do you think he has repainted the wall? Please leave the subject to those who know.
I am going by the bit of info shared. Maybe you know more. Share please.
As you have been told, there is water ingress into the masonry either from inside the wall (leaking water pipes, or from the other side of the wall ( bathroom, kitchen, or rain). The key is to identify the source of this dampness and stop it at the source. No amount of painting will solve the problem if the ingress is not eliminated.
over to you @Randy aka fundi konde in studio
Hii kitu pia imesumbua kwa hacienda yangu ya ushago. But mine the walls have no plumbing or water seepage. I suspect haikuwekwa damp proof so dampness inapanda kutoka ground.
First identify the cause otherwise utafanya kazi ya bure…
This is common in Limuru and other cooold regions. Mostly you’ll realise it’s innefective damp proof like in some miscalculated flooring where the finished floor level goes past the damp proof rendering it less effective. that’s why youll find the dampness on the low wall level and there is a possibility it disappears during hot/sunny months and is more pronounced after rainy days…an indication the seepage is from the ground. My argument is however not exclusive. The key thing is get to the root cause first then you will get the right action to do
Wapi ile rani nikipaka na nyumba ni warm I stay on the highlands and i think it can help me. Mimi ni kuchange room temperature na rangi, I hope you know that paint, right? tell me.
what are you struggling to say bro?
Hiyo kitu najaribu kusema
There’s a bathroom upande Wa pili…still reading the comments
If there’s no seepage into the wall, say from a water pipe in the wall, tafuta fundi, hiyo ukuta pande ya bafu igogagongwe plaster and then achape plaster afresh na nil ya water proof cement. But I am also wondering…hiyo bathroom haina kwa ukuta? Coz it’s unlikely ukuta iingize maji kama Luna tiles kwa ukuta.
Bathroom na this other room,shares a common wall
Assuming the water originates from the bathroom, you will need to rework it to ensure the floor and walls are properly water-proofed. If the surfaces are tiled, you may have to re-grout the joints with a waterproof compound. If it is normal plastering, you may have to repaint the wall and redo the floor using waterproofing additives.
