agree with ABM.
Appears you have some sort of damp problem,put a request on this site for a damp proofing specialist to visit you.

It could be condensation causing the damp rather than rising damp which is a load of nonsense and completely unproven. Have you had double glazing installed recently or a driveway or patio that breeches above the damp proof course. It could also be cracks in the render or missing pointing in the brickwork. A good builder should be able to advise.
