spotting Damp

Damp and mould are caused by excessive moisture. It can be caused from rising damp in cellars or ground floors, leaking pipes or rain that has seeped through window frames of damaged roofs. Although easy to spot, if not recognised in the early stages then damp can spread further causing even more problems in the future.

By carrying out a survey of cavity walls and damp walls we can assess the initial damage and put in place a solution for future damp problems.
