There is a difference between penetrating damp and rising damp. They are caused by various factors and any signs of penetrating damp should be investigated by a damp proofing specialist before a course of damp treatment is decided upon.
Penetrating damp is generally caused by moisture striking through the walls of a building, and may manifest in a number of ways, including damp patches on walls, deteriorating plaster or unsightly mould. Penetrating damp can occur when a tanking system has failed or been breached, or even if a cavity has been bridged. There are many causes. There are also many penetrating damp solutions.
