How long will it take for the walls to dry out?

The moment that CAREBRICK® is installed, it starts to work. In some cases, the walls will have been absorbing water for many years (tens or even hundreds!) so the first task is to reverse this process and start removing the moisture. Some properties might need repairing before or just as the system is installed. The effectiveness of Carebrick® will be hindered in cases where water is penetrating the property due to external defects such as a broken gutter or missing roof tiles. The structure of the walls (brick, stone, solid or cavity construction) also affect how quickly the system works. In general, the first results will be achieved after a year, but two to three years is no unusual in the case of solid walls constructed from natural stone.
