Damp Survey Specialist in Buckinghamshire
A damp survey is an inspection of a building to determine the presence, cause and extent of any dampness. This can be done internally or externally, depending on the property in question. Damp surveys are typically used to assess the damage that may have been caused by moisture, and to recommend solutions for reducing or eliminating the dampness.
There are a number of things that can cause damp in a building, including poor ventilation, water leaks, and condensation. Damp can cause damage to the structure of a building, as well as to its contents, so it is important to address any issues as soon as possible. Tapco HomeDry are the experts in damp surveys and damp prevention – get in touch today to arrange your damp survey.
Managing damp in Buckinghamshire properties
There are a number of factors that can increase the risk of damp in a building, including the age of the property, its location, and the type of construction. Older buildings are more at risk, as are properties that are in a poor state of repair. Properties located in areas with high levels of humidity are also more susceptible to damp, as are those with inadequate ventilation.
Damp can affect buildings of all ages, and Buckinghamshire properties are no exception. If you think that your property may be affected by damp, it is important to get it checked out as soon as possible. A damp survey will assess the extent of the problem and recommend the best course of action.

What are the signs of damp in your home?
Spotting the signs of damp in your property isn’t always easy, as damp will often occur in hard-to-reach spots that are often hidden from sight. Regularly moving furniture and checking for signs of damp is recommended, as this can help to prevent extensive damage. The following are the most common signs of damp in a property:
- Condensation on windows and walls
- Mould growth
- Peeling paint or wallpaper
- Musty smells
- Rotting woodwork and skirting boards
- Walls that are cold to the touch
If you notice any of these signs in your property, it is important to get a damp survey as soon as possible. Left untreated, damp can cause extensive damage to the structure and contents. Not to mention, damp can also be a health hazard, particularly for the very old and very young.
