Your drains are out of site out of mind but not when carrying out a Tapco HomeDry CCTV survey.
Many basements and semi basement we survey in London are damp as a result of long term leaking of the drainage system, which over a period of time has allowed water, often contaminated, to penetrate the walls. In some cases serious cracks have appeared to the walls, caused by the sub soil below the foundations being undermined in turn causing subsidence to occur. When this happens it is almost certain that structural underpinning will be required which must be carried out by a specialist company under the supervision of a qualified structural engineer.
Contaminated water leaks from drains not only damage your property but can seriously damage your health and affected areas should be vacated immediately and stay vacated until the problem has been rectified and sterilised by Tapco HomeDry.
In many cases, where for example open joints of the drainage pipes have been affected by root intrusion this will cause them to expand, leak and possibly block. Tapco HomeDry can cut out the root intrusion and insert a structural resin drain liner, saving a great deal of money and disruption. It is very likely that any damage will be covered by your home insurance and we will liaise with your company or loss adjuster and provide you and them with a detailed report and quotation for all of the restoration work and treatment.
We cover all of the London Boroughs, Surrey and the Home Counties. Never ignore the first signs of a damp problem call Tapco HomeDry to investigate it without delay.
