Signs Your House Has Damp

Recognising signs of damp in your home can be crucial. One of the most telling indicators of damp patch is a musty, mould-like odour that permeates your living space. Additionally, you might observe the unwelcome presence of mildew on your floors, walls, and ceilings, and these surfaces could feel uncomfortably cold and damp to the touch.

Moreover, damp patches and mysterious dark splotches may be evident on your walls and plaster, leading to wallpaper peeling or lifting, not to mention the excessive moisture on your windows that can become a noticeable issue.

It's not just the upper levels of your home at risk; even your cellar might succumb to unwelcome signs of damp-ness. To ward off this threat, it's wise to have a damp specialist thoroughly inspect your basement for any tanking issues.

If you suspect that your home is grappling with damp concerns, we're ready to perform a comprehensive damp survey and make sure there's nothing to worry about.

What are the Causes of Damp?

Your home may encounter various sources of damp, which can be a real headache for you. It's crucial to act promptly and identify the root causes to prevent the situation from deteriorating, which, down the road, might also cost you big in terms of money.

When you're in a direction to find the reasons behind your home's damp, you should consider hiring the services of our proficient independent damp surveyors. What we do is offer comprehensive surveying services and a range of other invaluable services. Our sole mission is to find the cause behind damp, which can be:

  1. Inadequate Ventilation: This is often referred to as condensation due to excessive indoor humidity. It can arise when you employ energy-saving methods like double glazing to seal off airflow in an older property. Additionally, everyday activities such as cooking, bathing, and washing can contribute to high levels of moisture in the air.

  2. Rainwater Infiltration: Rain can find its way into your home's exterior, especially if the exterior isn't adequately maintained. For instance, moisture issues can manifest at the junctures of wooden roofs due to the gradual degradation of mortar fillets, lead flashings, ridges, or hips.

  3. Internal Leaks: This situation can happen for various reasons, including dishwasher and washing machine malfunctions, poorly connected pipe joints, burst pipes, overflowing showers and baths, and more.

We, as expert damp surveyors, possess the expertise to find out the complexities of your damp issue, as damp can result from a variety of other factors, too.

If you are looking for a damp surveying company, then count on our numerous independent damp survey reviews that have commended our company's services, providing you with the confidence to entrust us with the challenging task of addressing damp-related problems.

How Does Damp Surveyors Ltd. Check for Damp?

Our damp surveyors employ a multifaceted approach when evaluating a building for damp issues, which include various things. So, whenever our experts do a damp survey, it involves:

  1. Structural Assessment: Our surveyors accurately examine the walls, floors, and ceilings of your building to detect any telltale signs of damp, such as discoloured patches, unsightly staining, or the presence of mould growth.

  2. Moisture Analysis: We utilise advanced moisture meters to gauge the moisture content within walls, floors, and ceilings. These cutting-edge instruments are invaluable for identifying hidden pockets of damp, even when visible indications are absent.

  3. Damp-Proof Course (DPC) Evaluation: Our inspection extends to the damp-proof course (DPC), a protective barrier installed to thwart rising damp. A damaged, missing, or incorrectly installed damp-proof course can serve as an indicator of potential rising damp issues.

  4. Penetrating Damp Testing: To determine if water is penetrating the walls from the exterior, we conduct comprehensive damp tests. This examination aids in pinpointing the source of the damp.

  5. Condensation and Humidity Assessment: We conduct assessments to distinguish whether damp might originate from condensation as opposed to other sources. This step involves evaluating both condensation levels and humidity.

  6. Historical Building Analysis: Our surveyors investigate the building's history, examining any prior damp repairs or renovations that have taken place.

Based on the findings from these comprehensive inspections, we are well-equipped to identify the root causes of damp and provide tailored recommendations for necessary repairs.

How Much Does a Damp Survey Cost?

When it comes to assessing a wet home, the costs can differ quite significantly. For instance, for a cosy two-bedroom residence, you might be looking at a starting price of around £200. However, as you move up to a more spacious four-bedroom house, the range tends to shift to the £300-£400 mark. And if you're dealing with a substantial detached four-bedroom house, it's not uncommon to see prices ranging from £550 to £600, depending on the extent of the moisture issues within the property.

Is A Damp Survey Worth It?

When considering a home purchase, conducting a comprehensive damp assessment becomes crucial. It ensures you uncover any potential issues that could arise in the future. Additionally, it may be necessary to engage in negotiations regarding the property's price or request that the seller address these concerns.

Are Damp Surveys Free?

Yes, sort of. However, not all companies provide damp surveys for free. Companies that do offer complimentary damp proof-course investigation and damp surveys opt for commission-based surveyors, whose primary aim is to identify issues and secure the project.
