Damp problem in old house with concrete floors

My house is over 100 years old and has concrete floors throughout but I have a bad problem with damp. I’ve heard that all the floors will need to be dug up. Is that the only solution ?

Certainly it will be necessary to determine where the moisture's coming from, the floor's construction and whether or not it has a damp proof membrane fitted.
It is not necessarily the case these days that the floor has to be dug up. As long as you can get back to sound concrete,ÿmodern resin coatings can be used to resolve the dampness problem, although you may have to sacrifice the existing floor screed and re-lay a new one on top of the resin layer.ÿÿÿ
