Structural dampness is the presence of unwanted moisture in the structure of a building, either as the result of water ingress from the outside, rising from the ground or penetrating from the exterior or condensation from within the structure. Damp if left untreated can cause significant structural problems and lead to other issues such as wet or dry rot, to floors and joinery etc.
Damp problems in buildings fit into the following 3 main categories:
Buying a Property?
Are you about to buy a new property and your surveyors have highlighted damp?
Our experienced damp surveyors can provide an in-depth inspection for signs of penetrative and rising damp.
Are your tenants unhappy about the dampness in their accommodation?
Not sure if it’s a damp or condensation issue.
We provide an in-depth report on the cause of the issue and solution and associated cost.
Condensation occurs in cold weather when warm humid air cools on contact with cold surfaces like external walls and windows and in places of poor air circulation such as corners, behind wardrobes and cupboards. These are ideal conditions for black mould to grow and will grow rapidly if not addressed. The amount of condensation a home has, depends on the occupant’s lifestyle and the ventilation in place, pets, people and gas fires are all producers of moisture.
Positive Input Ventilation (PIV) This system takes out the humid air and any other pollutants and replaces it with clean filtered air, improving the air condition in your home.
