Rising damp is the procedure water rising vertically up in the ground and travelling by capillary action through porous material including mortar and bricks. This makes the wall to get damp as hygroscopic salts travel into the brickwork and plaster. As water evaporates, these salts are deposited in the wall attracting more moisture in the atmosphere.
