Esher Damp Proofing Problems
Perhaps it is fate that one of Esher’s best-known past residents is designer Sir Terence Conran, known for his architectural and interior design skills. So it is that upmarket Esher has become widely known across the UK for its stock of beautiful detached properties.
Many of these houses are historical, arguably the most famous of which are Grade II-listed Esher Place and Grade I-listed Waynflete Tower, once the subject of a Time Team investigation.
Geologically Esher is a largely flat area close to the River Mole which, in the past, flooded regularly. This created a rich agricultural industry here, and the Domesday Book records it as benefitting from six ploughs. Even today local farms produce high quality fruits and vegetables in the damp, nutrient-rich soil surrounding Esher.
Sadly the ageing housing stock in Esher does mean that damp problems are not uncommon. Over the years we have attended a variety of contracts in the Esher area but in each case we have swiftly and effectively relieved problems including lateral damp, penetrating damp and condensation.
In addition the moisture typically present in this stunning part of Surrey, especially during the winter months, means that the odds of water ingress are even greater. Fortunately irrespective of the damp problem you’re suffering Tapco are on hand to offer advice, carry out damp surveys and – most importantly of all – remedial damp proofing work.
Damp Problems? Act Fast…
Many people regard dampness as a minor annoyance. However the reality of the situation is that it’s not just wet walls you need to worry about. When your home has been damp for extended periods of time you can find that paint and wallpaper starts to flake or come away from the walls. Worse, more structural damage can occur to plaster or timber which become liable to crumble in damp conditions.
It is also important to appreciate that a damp home also becomes the perfect breeding ground for the microscopic mould spores that are all around us. As the mould starts to grow it will produce its own spores, helping to spread a localized problem throughout your property.
These spores don’t just smell unpleasant; they can also be damaging to your health, leading to conditions such as headaches, red or itchy eyes and persistent coughs.
You deserve better than to live in a mould-infested home. Contact Tapco today for a thorough damp survey and assessment of your situation and let us return your home to its former glory.
