How Can Our Mould Southampton Team Assist?
Often the result of mould is to do with one of two factors – rising damp and condensation. Rising damp typically occurs due to a structural issue, e.g. a “bridged” membrane or a missing/ old damp proof course (DPC). Whereas condensation is usually to do with an internal source, such as a shower, without sufficient ventilation to remove the steam build-up. Once mould occurs, it’s very hard to get rid of. Fortunately, we’re experts at tackling mould in Southampton.
We’ll arrange a time to visit your property to complete an in-depth survey. We’ll determine the cause of the problem and recommend the appropriate solution. For instance, we’ll compile a report with a sketch plan for remedial treatments showing the affected walls and proposed treatments. This will also outline any ancillary building works that may be required. You’ll be provided with a free, no-obligation quote, so there’s no risk in enquiring with our team today.
For rising damp, we’ll inject a suitable silicone or stearate-based chemical/ cream, which is designed to prevent capillary action. This will prevent moisture from moving through the walls. Any affected plaster will be removed and replaced to remove any mould or hygroscopic salts (deposited by groundwater, attract moisture) which are present. This should remedy rising damp-related mould, Southampton customers.
Suppose your problem is being caused by condensation. Our Southampton mould specialists can recommend ways to prevent this. And if necessary, we can install a dehumidifier that’s capable of removing anywhere from 1-2 gallons of water daily from the air. Larger units are also available for larger properties.
