How We Help
Getting to the root cause of the issue is what separates damp surveyors. Don’t look to cover it up, fix the problem.
Types of damp
Your property could be suffering from penetrating damp, lateral damp, rising damp, bridging or a combination. We can’t emphasise enough about the importance of a thorough damp survey. Our surveyors will explain exactly why a problem has arisen. You might just be surprised; a high number of damp issues are easily resolved at low cost.
When completing a damp survey, it’s imperative to follow BS 6576:2005. By following this British Standard, we can essentially rule out potential problems one by one.
Part 184.108.40.206 All other possible causes of damp conditions should be located.
- Lateral penetration associated with changes of floor/ground level
- Leaks from rooms, gutters and downpipes
- Water penetration around the window frames and doors
- Mortar droppings or debris in the cavity walls
- History of flooding
- Faulty drains
- Internal plumbing leaks
- Water penetration through external walls
Addressing the problem
Time and time again on surveys it’s the real basics that are causing the damp problems. Condensation, faulty rain goods, blocked drains, high ground levels, bridged cavities etc. You can be confident by instructing DAMPX our diligent survey alongside any remedial treatment we recommend is 100% genuine.
What we tend to find when completing surveys is the masking of the problem, not fixing the issue at hand. Water will always take the path of least resistance and although short term solutions may appear to resolve the issue, it’s highly likely they’ll appear elsewhere.

We had three damp surveys completed by different companies at our property with DAMPX being one of them. The attention to detail of their survey was on a completely different level. The other companies were in and out within 30 minutes. DampX were here for around 2 hours! Unbelievable service and this was a free survey!
