Mould problem - Damp Proofing job in Colchester, Essex

Job description

We live in an extended bungalow. The original part of the front of the property was built approx 1930's and we are led to believe is solid wall construction although as property is rendered is difficult to tell. The front is also north facing and we have problems with mould and mouldy smells in these 2 rooms (bedrooms)They are quite small rooms and mould etc appears behind furniture. The problem seems mainly to be at low levels causing wallpaper to come away etc. We have been here 8 years and problem no worse but there is obviously something wrong. We are looking to try and get a permanent solution to the problem asap before redecorating again and possibly selling property. Is this something you might be able to advise on and help with? Many thanks Shirley

Steve contacted us promptly and came out to look at our mould problem the next day. He was polite, professional and knowledgable, and able to confirm that we did not have damp as we feared, but condensation causing mould to the old solid wall parts of our 1930s bungalow. His report and estimate arrived later that evening and was detailed and concise. He recommended that a Drimaster PIV machine be installed and that the walls and areas suffering with mould be treated with a special solution and additive to paint which he could supply. We went ahead with the work and the PIV we installed a few days later with no problems and today (another Saturday) just 10 days after the initial contact, 2 of Steves team came out to complete some plastering work to our hall which we had a quote for at the same time. All the team were polite, friendly and professional, they cleaned up afterwards, even vacuuming with their own vacuum! We are very pleased with everything so far and are very happy that the mould problem which we were very concerned about should now be cured. I have already recommended Steve to my son for some building work and he is going to be arranging a quite for them next week. So refreshing to find someone who answers your calls, emails and texts and does what they say they will do!
Will definitely use them again in the future if we need any more work doing.
