  • Damp patches on walls or ceilings

Condensation and mould treatment in Glasgow

Condensation is the most common form of damp that will affect properties in Glasgow and Peter Cox offer a range of condensation solutions to combat water collecting around windows, black mould growth and damp walls.

Surfaces in rooms which are suffering from condensation will begin to germinate black mould. This can prove problematic for people who are more vulnerable such as asthmatics, children and the elderly due to reduced air quality

The most frequent source of condensation problems is poor ventilation within the property. Our surveyors will establish the source of your ventilation issues, and put together a detailed report specifically tailored to your property.

Condensation and mould solutions offered by Peter Cox include ventilation systems, air quality monitoring and thermal plaster solutions.

  • Assess the scope of the infestation and the species of woodworm involved
  • Determine if the woodworm larvae are active and actually require treatment
  • Confirm any repairs needed required
  • Check for associated timber problems such as wet rot or dry rot
