    Terraces

    Often due to incorrectly sloped terraces,

    improperly fitted drain pipes, gaps between slabs on

    parapet walls or blocked outlets, there is accumulation

    leading to a rise in water pressure. This can result in

    appearance of ugly damp patches, peeling of paint,

    stains on the ceiling below and algal growth.

    Sun Shades / Chajjas

    Improper slopes, or cracks at the joints between

    walls and sun shades / chajjas, can cause ugly

    damp patches in and around these places.

    This eventually results in flaking, peeling or bubble

    formations on the internal walls close by, ruining

    their beauty.

    Exterior Walls

    Often, due to structural ageing or poor masonry, joint and

    surface cracks develop on exterior walls. Constant exposure

    to elements like heat and rain weakens the walls and results

    in the wear and tear of the exterior paint film. The entering of

    water further leads to a host of interior painted wall problems.

  • 13For application process refer to page no. 38 (Damp Block)

    Drain off the water and empty

    the entire tank, in case of

    renovation / repainting.

    On bare concrete or plaster, apply

    SmartCare Damp Block as per the

    recommended application procedure.

    Once the SmartCare Damp Block coat is dry,

    topcoat it again with another layer of

    plaster, thus ensuring that the

    SmartCare Damp Block treatment

    is sandwiched between 2 layers of plaster.

    Water Tanks/ Sumps

    A commonly observed problem is seepage or leakage from overhead and

    underground tanks. Due to continuous presence of water, there is a tendency of

    water seeping through, thus spoiling the dcor and weakening the structure.

    Any waterproofing treatment used for such tanks needs to be safe for potable

    water consumption so as not to pose any health hazard for consumers.

    SmartCare Damp Block is certified to be safe and compatible with potable water.

    age of the structure or incorrect planning,

    leakage and seepage of water can ruin

    the beauty of your walls.

    Skirting Areas

    Tide marks often develop at a height of around

    1 meter on walls. Problems like damp patches,

    peeling, flaking or efflorescence are also common due

    to the rise of ground water, especially in areas with

    high water table levels.

    Bathroom / Toilet Adjacent Walls

    Continuous presence of water leads to dampness-related problems.

    Water penetrates through gaps between tiles and the wall-floor joints or

    due to faulty plumbing. This is exhibited in the form of damp patches,

    ugly stains, peeling, flaking and efflorescence on walls around

    the bathroom.

    Areas Near Kitchen Sink

    Constant exposure to water damages the walls

    around the sink in more ways than one. Leaking

    pipes and faulty plumbing can lead to appearance

    of ugly stains and patches on the walls below the

    sink as well as on the opposite side.

    Exterior Facing Walls

    Exterior facing walls often have water entering

    through surface and joint cracks, gaps

    between the window frame and the wall. This

    results in interior dampness problems such as

    damp stains, paint bubbling, paint flaking and

    efflorescence on exterior facing walls.

    Ceilings

    Seepage from above, through bathrooms, toilets, kitchen sinks,

    faulty plumbing and water pressure can cause dampness-related

    problems like stains, bubbling, paint flaking and more. Houses with

    terraces above are vulnerable to seepage through improper

    sloping, cracks at joints, surface cracks or damaged areas that

    allow water penetration.

  • For application process refer to page no. 38 (Damp Block) and 42 (Damp Proof)29

    Damp ProofEnvelop Coating

    The recommended treatment for ceiling dampness is to address the actual source

    of water leakage.

    Solution:

    In case of a terrace above, envelop the entire terrace from parapet to

    parapet using SmartCare Damp Proof.

    If there is a toilet / bathroom on the floor above, remove the tiles and do

    waterproofing treatment by applying 2 coats of SmartCare Damp Block

    and re-lay the tiles.
