How We Help

What you need is an invasive survey. By invasive we mean lifting floorboards, removing skirting boards, drilling samples for moisture content, removing small amounts of plaster for salt analysis, checking drains, wall cavities etc. Although, on pre-purchase surveys this isn’t always feasible. It’s not as simple as prodding a wall with a moisture metre.

DAMPX Surveys

We don’t have salespeople on our team. Our surveys are conducted by salaried surveyors who aren’t driven by commissions.

If you require a survey, just give us a call. One of our surveyors will come to your property equipped with different tools, devices, and cameras to identify the underlying issue. Following this, we’ll compile a detailed report outlining our findings, if any, along with our recommendations.

Types of Damp

Dampness in homes and commercial buildings  can occur due to various reasons and can be categorised into different types based on their causes and characteristics:

Wet & Dry Rot

Dry and Wet Rot both pose threats to a building’s structure. They not only mar its appearance but also pose health risks. Under specific conditions, their growth can be remarkably rapid.

Typically, these issues arise from dampness, water seepage, inadequate airflow, neglectful upkeep, or a mix of these factors. Among wood-rotting fungi, Dry Rot stands out as the most severe.

Structural Damp

Structural dampness refers to the unwanted presence of moisture within a building’s structure, stemming from either external penetration or internal condensation. A significant portion of building dampness issues arises from condensation, rain entering the structure, or rising damp.

Penetrating Damp

This happens when water enters a building from the outside and spreads through walls or roofs due to leaks in pipes, roofs, gutters, or cracks in the walls. It can cause damp patches, mould, or decay in affected areas.
