When Do You Need to Call in Damp Surveyors Ltd
There are numerous signs that you might need to have a damp survey in the home. The first sign you will probably notice is the smell. A musty or damp smell can become very unpleasant, and it often means that there is hidden mould in the property, normally behind some furniture or fixtures on the wall.
There might also be some small spots on the wall or ceiling. These might start as small brown stains. They should be fairly easy to wipe off, but just wiping them off might not get rid of the damp or condensation problems already taking hold in the house.
You might notice some of the smaller signs of damp problems, such as a low surface temperature on the wall, moisture on the walls, high humidity, black mould on the walls or ceiling or condensation problems on windows/walls/ceilings.
If you do spot any of these signs, be sure to point them out to our team so we can point you in the right direction and get your damp protected as soon as possible.

These are the common FAQs for our mould and condensation surveys.
What Causes Mould Growth in the Home?
Condensation damp is one of the leading problems that causes mould issues within the home. You can often find problem areas for mould because the affected and surrounding areas will be colder to the touch. This allows for warm air to cool down quickly, creating condensation. Heat loss in the home can cause the walls to be colder.
Other risks that can cause significant mould production in the home include a lack of ventilation in the home.
Damp might also be caused by rising damp within the home.
Whatever the cause, the survey by industry-leading damp and condensation specialists will be able to find the problem areas and recommend the best solutions to fix problems.
Why Should I Prevent Damp and Mould Growth in the Home?
Penetrating damp and mould growth are health risks in your home. Individuals with asthma can suffer from significant breathing difficulties. Penetrating damp or rising damp might also be a cause of eczema, cold-like symptoms and other illnesses that can make it challenging to work or live in the home.
There have been cases where mould has been linked to serious health problems.
If mould is left untreated in the home, property owners don't just suffer from health issues. Mould build-up can cause damage to properties, such as dampness in the wall causing paint or wallpaper to peel, or it can cause the plaster to fall off the wall.
Do Condensation Surveys Require a Professional?
A condensation survey is a complicated task that requires specialist skills and experience to get the information required. To find the damp issues and other serious problems within a home, including locations where black mould might be hiding, you need a fully qualified surveyor.
Our team is registered with various trade bodies and are seen as local experts in damp conditions.
They will also write a detailed report that will provide unrivalled knowledge of the root cause of the issues in your home. The full assessment should also have a space for prescribing treatments for the home.
These elements are just not found in individuals who are not experienced as a damp surveyors.
Could I Not Just Lower the Temperature and Increase Ventilation?
While temperature and ventilation are common causes of mould problems within the home, by the time you notice the tell-tale signs of mould within the home, it is too late to rely on just ventilation and temperature.
It is best for you to get a damp survey completed on your building to determine what is causing the dampness around the home. Then and only then will the moisture issues in your building be sorted, and you can feel happy and safe in your home again.
