Damp Survey Specialist in Oxfordshire
If you’re concerned about damp in your residential or commercial property, a damp survey will offer the ideal solution. During a damp survey, we will identify the source of the problem and then create a plan of action to remedy the issue.
Damp surveys are perfect for those who are unsure about the cause of their damp problem, or for those who want to make sure that they are taking the best course of action to resolve the issue.
Damp can be caused by a number of different factors, including leaking pipes and gutters, condensation, poor ventilation and excess groundwater. While some damp problems are caused by external factors that you cannot control, it’s often the case that small changes in the use of the property can help to remedy damp problems.
Managing damp in Oxfordshire properties
Oxfordshire is home to over half a million people, and there is a wide range of properties in the area. From modern new-builds to ancient cottages, each property presents its own challenges when it comes to managing damp.
If left untreated, damp can lead to a wide range of issues, including structural damage to the property, damage to possessions, health problems caused by mould spores and damage to brickwork, timber and masonry. Heating a damp property is also very difficult, so you may be spending more money on energy bills in order to stay comfortable.
To help avoid damage to your Oxfordshire property, Tapco HomeDry offers a comprehensive damp survey service. Our team of experts will visit your property and carry out a thorough inspection, using the latest technology to identify the source of the problem.
