Case Study

A case study of some work our team was involved in. We were asked to investigate a reported damp ingress issue in one of our client’s lounge walls. This damp issue had already been investigated the previous year, prior to our attendance, with structural works having been undertaken. This included floor uplift, forced drying, excavated drainage run to the exterior and redecoration was undertaken to try to solve the problem.

Damp Specialists Brighton

Our Cornerstone team were appointed to conduct a thorough investigation following a return of the damp in the same corner of the lounge. We work in accordance with our embedded expert process in order to finally find out the case for this issue.

We carried out an extensive survey encompassing all possible non-invasive measures. We found no issue within 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 evidence of consistent staining on the carpet and underlay present and the recorded dry structure. Part of the carpet and underlay was closely inspected and it was discovered the staining was urine related.

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

Suffering from dampness in Brighton?

Everyday things which occur in the home like cooking, showering and drying clothes can all create high levels of moisture in the property. Condensation happens when moist air comes into contact with a cold surface. The air is unable to hold the same amount of moisture, so is released onto the surface leaving it wet. Click here for more information about damp in your home.

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

Mould doesn’t necessarily need dark to grow. However, it is common in dark places like behind the wardrobe. 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. If you need more information please don’t hesitate to get in contact with our damp specialists in Brighton today.
