Managing damp in Dorset properties

Dorset is home to a number of historic buildings as well as many modern properties. Damp can be a problem in both old and new homes, so it’s important to be on the lookout for signs of damp. Damp can cause damage to your walls, ceiling, floors and furniture, so the signs might not always be obvious.

To help remove and prevent damp in your property, we offer a wide range of services to support homeowners and commercial property owners. All of our technicians are trained to the high standards of the PCA (Property Care Association), so you can be confident you’re in good hands.

Damp surveys in Dorset

The first step in our process is to conduct a full damp survey of your property. This uses the latest thermal imaging technology and moisture detection tools to identify areas of higher humidity and excess moisture. Once we know where the damp is located, we can then find the cause of the problem. This could be anything from leaking pipes to poor drainage.

After the survey, we’ll provide you with a written report and quotation. This will outline all of the work that needs to be done to resolve the problem. As a full-service company, we can also complete this remedial work to an impeccable standard.

We’ll also give you advice on how to prevent damp in the future. This can be particularly useful during home renovations such as a basement conversion, as these are prone to damp if not completed correctly. We’ll work alongside your architect or builder to ensure complete compliance.
