Case Study

Our specialists were asked to investigate the history behind a reported damp ingress issue in the lounge of a well-decorated home. The damp issue had already been investigated one year prior to our attendance with structural works having been undertaken including floor uplift, forced drying, excavated drainage run to the exterior and redecoration undertaken in an attempt to solve the problem.

Cornerstone was appointed to conduct a thorough investigation following a reported return of the damp within the same corner of the lounge. We work in accordance with our embedded expert process in order to finally find out the cause of this issue.

We carried out an extensive survey encompassing all possible non-invasive measures. This did not indicate an issue with the building. Additionally, it did not indicate an issue with any installed rain and wastewater elements that could be adding to the localised damp area.

With consistent staining to the carpet and underlay present and the recorded dry structure, a section of the carpet and underlay were closely inspected and it was revealed that the staining was urine related.

Further discussions with the homeowner confirmed the presence of a cat which was defacing the area.

Standard activities like cooking, showering and drying clothes can all create high levels of moisture in your property. Condensation occurs 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.

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

It’s a common misconception that mould needs darkness 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. It can leave an unpleasant smell and black spores.
