Condensation and mould treatment in Leicester

Condensation is the most common form of damp that will affect properties in Leicester. Properties with poor ventilation cannot achieve optimal relative humdity and this mean damp air will build up in the property and settle on cold surfaces. Peter Cox offer a range of condensation solutions to combat water collecting around windows, black mould growth and damp walls.

Black mould is a growing concern among property owners as it can prove problematic for people who are more vulnerable such as asthmatics, children and the elderly due to reduced air quality

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.
