Damp Survey Specialist in Essex
If you’ve spotted the signs of damp in your home, you need the expert advice and support of Tapco HomeDry. We provide damp surveys in and around Essex to help commercial and residential property owners to eradicate damp. We can help you to identify the source of the problem and then create a remedial roadmap to eradicate the problem. Our team uses a wide range of professional equipment to help detect damp, even in hard to reach areas.
Damp is caused by a number of factors, including rising damp, leaks, poor ventilation and condensation. Structural problems may arise as a result of damp left untreated. Damp surveys are an essential step in protecting your property against damage.
Tackling damp in Essex properties
Essex is home to around 1.8million people. This vast area has a wide range of residential and commercial properties. From modern new-builds to traditional properties, no home is safe from the risk of damp.
When left untreated, damp can cause structural problems that will be expensive to fix. Damp can also lead to mould, which is a hazard to health, particularly for the very young and the very old. And finally, damp properties are more expensive to heat, which is a key consideration with rising energy prices.
To help remedy all of these issues, we recommend a comprehensive damp survey to help protect your property. Tapco HomeDry offers damp surveys and treatment that will identify problems and help to keep your property in peak condition.
Damp surveys in Essex
The first step in the process is to complete a comprehensive damp survey with the latest technology. We use thermal imaging and other specialist tools to find the extent of the damp.
Once we know the areas to be treated, we can then determine the source of the damp. There are many different reasons for damp in a property and it’s important to find the root cause to ensure it cannot return.
Once we have completed our initial survey, we’ll provide you with a comprehensive plan of action with recommendations based on our expertise and experience. This will include a complete roadmap of remedial work we would recommend.
We can also provide preventive steps to help avoid the chances of developing damp in the future. For example, if you are completing a basement conversion, we can work alongside your architects to minimise the risk of damp.
And finally, we can carry out all the work in accordance with local regulations to help keep your property warm, dry and free from dangerous damp.
