Case Study

An important case study in our Cornerstone history. One of our clients asked us to report a reoccurring damp problem in their lounge wall. This problem had already been investigated previous to Cornerstones arrival the previous year. Excessive structural works occurred to get to the root of it. This included floor uplift, forced drying, excavated drainage run to the exterior and redecoration. After all this the problem was still not resolved.

Our experts were asked to investigate after the damp problem reoccurred in the same spot. 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. There was no issue discovered 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 lots of staining found on the carpet and underlay. This and the recorded dry structure were closely inspected and it was revealed the staining was urine related.

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

Do you have a problem with Damp in Leeds?

Everyday activities like cooking, showering and clothes drying are all causes of 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. 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 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 Leeds today.
