The majority of damp proofing contractors are unconcerned as to whether the service they provide is effective or not; the biggest names are the worst offenders. Most companies fail to honour their guarantee certificates when their work invariably fails. The cure to damp is not drilling countless tiny holes into the walls or installing a 'magic' vent. Damp needs to be identified and rectified at source, so there's no possibility of it coming back.
Occupying a damp property, even for a very short period can have adverse effects on health. This is most notable in children, the elderly and those with underlying respiratory conditions. Prolonged exposure to stachybotrys or 'toxic black mould' can have dire consequences. Independent research has confirmed a correlation in severely reduced life expectancy and exposure to damp, mould and mildew. Contrary to popular belief, damp always has a cause that can identified during an inspection. Regardless of the age of a property all damp can be remedied.
Look for the following signs:
- Tide mark staining, usually yellow or brown hints coming up from the skirting boards.
- White salty deposits will be left on your wall’s plasterwork
- Black spots of mould may be beginning to form in some areas
- Boards and flooring may start to show signs of rot

Living in an older building should be an enjoyable and satisfying experience. So why can it sometimes turn into a costly nightmare for some owners?
Discovering your building is damp, has dry and wet rot or death watch beetle can be distressing for all owners. But solutions do not need to cost thousands of pounds or involve putting large quantities of original fabric into a skip. In fact, many properties have suffered greater damage and loss of fabric through remedial work than was caused by the original problem! There is one important principle to be considered.
The historic building should be managed so damp and its associated problems do not occur or, are at least minimised to tolerable levels. Read more.
