Potential Causes of Moisture and Structural Damp
The causation of moisture inside your property and structural damp can be a result of an intrusion of water from outside the property. Or condensation from within the structure itself. The survey we conduct will determine the root cause of the damp or moisture.
Rain water penetration, leaking pipes and poor ventilation that leads to condensation are all common causes that customers experience. Damp and moisture inside your property can often result in mould growth too, which in turn can cause respiratory issues.
These common causes of dampness within your property should not be confused with Rising Damp. Rising Damp is caused by moisture from the ground that enters the structure of your building. Rising up the inside walls of your property. Signs of rising damp can sometimes be identified by damage to internal decoration. Damage such as discoloured paint or peeling wallpaper are indicators.
Mitigating further problems and damage to your property
In order to prevent further damage, it’s imperative that you determine the root cause as soon as possible through a specialist damp surveyor. As well as the scale of the damp and moisture issues you are experiencing. Failure to do so is likely to result in secondary damage and greater issues. If damp is left untreated it can spread and a major concern is it potentially causing structural damage to your property.
If the damp is allowed to spread to structural masonry or timber it could potentially lead to serious structural issues in you property. In some extreme cases even catastrophic structural damage. Having a professional damp survey conducted quickly can prevent further damage. When the damp is first noticed you should seek expert advice from an independent damp surveyor.
Another potential form of secondary damage is mould growth. Excess damp and moisture can create the perfect environment for mould to take root – and spread. Hiring an independent damp surveyor before this is essential. Mould can have very adverse health effects on the inhabitants of the property. The mould spores in the air can cause respiratory issues. As well as other negative health effects. An Ideal Response specialist damp surveyor can conduct the damp survey quickly and efficiently. Provide you with the findings to help you understand the root cause of the damp issue. As well as recommendations on how the issue can be fixed.
Additional services related to your Damp Survey
As previously mentioned, Ideal Response are expert damage restoration and hygiene specialists. Upon request we can provide you with additional services alongside the damp survey. If we offer the services mentioned in your damp report write up we can provide the services to you upon request. Saving you a headache and time having to search for a solution.
The logical next step once you have received the moisture report is to begin the drying process. We offer a range of drying solutions. Each designed to suit a particular job. Pressure drying is a much faster alternative to suction drying. Both methods will dry out a damp surface. However suction drying does it in a way that limits the amount of dust and fibres pushed into the room.
We also provide services that could help with any secondary damage that may have been incurred due to your damp and moisture issues. The water damage cleanup service we provide includes the drying, stripping and disposal of damaged contents and restoration of your property as close to its pre-incident state as possible.
