About Damp Cure Services

Damp Proofing

Hello,

We do charge a nominal fee for damp proofing survey.

This is to cover the cost of the visit and subsequent written report.
I have saved many homebuyers from being sold unnecessary treatments.
The inspection can take upto two hours and I will get to the cause and solutions and work with you to understand everything and alongside your budget and concerns.

We can provide a complete service from start to decorative finish.

Penetrating damp :

Cracks in render are common and removal is sometimes necessary to prevent internal damp patches. Provide both a re-render or make good of brickwork and re-point and paint.

Drainage and guttering fix and clear out.

Removal of internal plaster and cure with a variety of methods to suit the property and your budget.

Rising Damp & Salt Damp:

A two fold approach tackling external causes and internal rectification.

External solutions : french drain and or lowered patio/ external area.

Chemical injection (if customer prefers this method and only if all other variables have been exhausted and a definite rising damp problem is evidenced)

Internal solutions : removal to damp areas of plaster back to brickwork. Open to options on what method you use to reinstate.

PLEASE NOTE : WALLS NEED TO BE FULLY CURED AND DRY BEFORE ANY INTERNAL PAINTING AS THE MOISTURE IN PAINT WILL ONLY CAUSE FURTHER PROBLEMS.

Condensation
Mould :
comprehensive mould cleaning service, using only the latest envirovent MouldGuard+.. including tiles cleaned and restored back to new .

Insulation of walls using products to suit your budget.

Using Envirovent to install latest ventilation.

Condensation is caused by warm, moist air hitting cold surfaces, which causes the moisture in the air to condense and form water droplets.  On soft or absorbent surfaces, you cannot see the water droplets as they are absorbed, but they can be clearly seen on non-absorbent glossy surfaces. If you do not deal with condensation, it can rot wood such as doors and window frames as well as damage furnishings.  Mould will grow as a result of condensation, and you can see this on walls, furnishings and clothing. The spores from some types of mould can be bad for your lungs and affect people with breathing problems such as asthma.
