Hi guys, I apologise if this is completely irrelevant to this forum. I am looking for some information on dealing with dampness in my kitchen. I see some dampness on my kitchen walls and some paint peeling off. I don't have any mould. I found a local damp proofer and asked him to check and give me a quote. He checked for dampness and told me that couple of walls are saturated with dampness and I will need all the plaster removed form the walls, some chemicals applied and replastered again. Following that visit, I bought a Moisture detector from Amazon and checked for dampness on the walls. I see that there is no pattern in the dampness to identify where it is coming from, but I see the damp readings are higher towards the ceiling and very less towards the floor. I think only 3 areas actually reported high in 20's using this meter. Rest of the areas on these walls report low with a couple of medium readings. I have also checked the exterior of these walls to see if there are any leaks or stagnant water, but couldn't find anything. I believe the dampness is from the cooking, as I have no extractor hood and heating in my kitchen. I am trying to understand if I need to treat these walls or invest in an additional radiator and dehumidifier and make sure the kitchen is ventilated. I am actually redoing my kitchen in the next month. If I need to do a damp treatment, this may be the right time, but not sure if I really need it.
