Damp Odour Removal
Are you suffering from a damp, musty smell that just doesn’t seem to go away? While a damp smell is usually indicative that there’s something more going on, a leak or water penetration isn’t always immediately obvious. That’s why at Ideal Response, we can trace the source of the damp smell, rectify the cause, neutralise the odour and then remediate any mould which may have grown as a result.
Once you can smell a damp odour, you can be certain that there’s water around – even if signs of a leak or water penetration aren’t visible. Using advanced technology and thermal imaging equipment, we can identify damp areas, which is highly likely the cause of the smell.
Once the source of the leak or water penetration is identified, we can carry out the necessary remedial work – whether it’s a leaking pipe behind a wall or a compromised damp course. To help the area dry out, we can then install drying equipment for a set period of time before neutralising the odour to eradicate the smell permanently. And if you need further peace of mind, we can carry out a moisture survey so you can rest assured knowing that no further damage is being caused.
Once the cause has been rectified and the odour eliminated, it is important to consider the potential of mould growth. Mould can start to grow within 24 – 48 hours in perfect conditions and it can colonise in as little as 12 days. If mould has appeared because of the damp, we also offer a mould remediation service to keep you fully covered.
Ideal Response will work with you to provide a complete solution, ensuring that disruption is kept to a minimum. We don’t just mask smells; we source, remediate then neutralise.
