Most damp problems are caused by ground water rising up the walls (rising damp), water penetrating through some maintenance defects (penetrating damp) and/or poor ventilation (condensation). Moisture gets trapped in the walls and builds up to cause unsightly and unhealthy issues such as mould and mildew.

Don't ignore damp - it can do serious damage to the structure of your house. Also using the wrong treatment method can make the problem worse.
