Case Study

We were asked to examine a reported damp ingress issue in a client’s well-decorated lounge walls. This particular problem had already been investigated the previous year, before our attendance, with structural works having been undertaken. This included floor uplift, forced drying, excavated drainage run to the exterior and redecoration are undertaken to try to resolve the issue.

Our Damp Specialists Bournemouth

Our team were asked to conduct a thorough investigation after the damp returned in the same spot as the lounge. We work in accordance with our embedded expert process in order to finally find out the case for this issue.

We undertook a complete survey encompassing all possible non-invasive measure. We discovered no issue in the building. It did not show an issue with any installed rain and wastewater elements that could be contributing to the localised damp area.

There was plenty of evidence of staining on the carpet and underlay present and the recorded dry structure, part of the carpet and underlay were closely inspected and it was discovered the staining was urine related.

After more discussion with the homeowner, it was discovered that their cat was actually urinating on the area.

Do you have a problem with Damp in Bournemouth?

Everyday household activities like cooking, showering and drying clothes are all responsible for creating high levels of moisture in your property. Condensation occurs when moist air comes into contact with a cold surface. The air can’t hold the same amount of moisture, so is released onto the surface leaving it wet.

Mould needs a food source. This can be common household materials like wallpaper, plasterboard, paint, some carpets, wood fabrics and other organic materials.

Mould is common in dark places like behind wardrobes. It doesn’t necessarily need darkness to grow.  It takes between 4-12 hours to begin the germination process and after this, it can take time for the mould to actually develop and create spores. It can take several days or 2 weeks to fully mature, depending on the mould type. Evidence of mould can include an unpleasant smell and black spores. Mould contains a variety of different health risks. If you need more information please don’t hesitate to get in contact with our damp specialists in Bournemouth today.
