Your Damp Proofing Specialists in Oxford
You’re probably reading this page because you suspect that your home or business property is damp. Theoretically, when you’ve got damp it’s usually because of condensation, penetrative damp or rising damp. Sounds simple, right? Not quite. In practice, most damp problems are complex, and can be tricky to diagnose and treat. Get it wrong and you leave yourself open to structural damage, health problems and other complications such as woodworm or wet and dry rot. So it’s crucial to hire the right specialist from the word go.
We’re a company who’ve been successfully treating damp for over 20 years, in Oxford, Oxfordshire and surrounding areas.
HOW TO TELL IF YOU HAVE A DAMP PROBLEM
Lots of people suspect they have a damp problem, but they’re not absolutely sure. This goes hand in hand with the complex and elusive nature of damp: if your ceiling starts weeping water it’s a clear-cut case, but often the signs are more subtle. To avoid the particular difficulties associated with long-term damp, it’s best to take action as soon as you feel something is not quite right. So if you notice black mould, blistering plaster or wallpaper, strange salty tidemarks on your walls or even a persistent musty smell, you need to call a damp proofing specialist without delay.
HOW WE DIAGNOSE AND CURE YOUR DAMP ISSUE
Damp is a big issue for properties in Oxford, partly because the area contains a large number of homes and businesses built in the 18th and 19th centuries. But damp problems most commonly arise as a direct or indirect consequence of modifications made to the original fabric of the building. This means that we can only diagnose your damp problem by conducting a comprehensive survey of your property.
After we complete our survey, any damp or damp-related issues will be itemised and explained in the report we produce. We’ll also recommend the most cost-effective and long-lasting course of remedial action to cure the problem. Unlike most other damp proofing specialists in Oxford, we offer a 100% diagnosis and cure guarantee, backed by a warranty of up to 30 years on any chemicals or equipment we may use.
