Is Damp Affecting Your Health?

Damp is not always visible to the naked eye and so may be lurking unseen in places out of every day view, for example behind appliances or furniture. For peace of mind book a FREE damp survey of your property.

Read What The World Health Organisation Say

"In Europe, an estimated 10–50% (depending on the country) of the indoor environments where human beings live, work and play are damp". However, damp is not always visible to the naked eye, therefore a  comprehensive survey of property by a professional is recommended. 

"WHO is concerned about this situation because excessive dampness and mould are a threat to health. Occupants of damp or mouldy buildings are at increased risk of experiencing health problems such as respiratory symptoms, respiratory infections, allergic rhinitis and asthma". 

Some are more at risk than others

"Some people are more sensitive to mould than others, and some groups are especially vulnerable. Additional effort should be made to keep away from damp and mould babies and children, elderly people, those with existing skin problems, such as eczema, or respiratory problems, such as allergies and asthma, and anyone who is immuno-compromised (e.g., chemotherapy patients)".

Eliminating damp helps eliminate health problems

"On the other hand, WHO has demonstrated that remedial action works. For example, research shows that people living in well-insulated and adequately ventilated accommodation are less likely to visit their doctor or be admitted to hospital due to respiratory conditions than those living in damp homes".

Our damp surveyors are highly trained and use an array of digital instruments to help them come to the correct conclusion. They will then explain the problem to you, talk about any dangers that your problem could cause you and fully explain a solution. Some of the solutions that we use will even save you money in energy bills, so much so that HMRC have reduced the VAT rate. All work is carried out by qualified tradespeople to current British Board of Agrement standards. All visits to your property will be conducted under strict COVID 19 guidelines.
