When to call our Liverpool damp specialists

Being adjacent to the Irish sea and sitting on the Mersey Estuary, properties in Liverpool can often experieicne penetrating damp caused by wind driven rain. However, other damp problems such as black mould in poorly ventilated buildings are also common. This can be a headache for Liverpool 's homeowners when it comes to identifying the source of damp in their property.

If you see any of the signs below we would recommend calling one of our qualified and accredited surveyors to determine the source of your damp problem and recommend the best damp proofing solution:

  • Damp patches on walls or ceilings
  • Damaged plaster or wallpaper with visible damp stains or salt deposits
  • Mould growth on walls and around windows
  • Damp patches or flooding in your basement or cellar
  • Decaying or rotting skirting boards or beams
  • Fungal growth on timber beams

Condensation and mould treatment in Liverpool

Condensation is the most common form of damp that will affect properties in Liverpool. 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.
