When to call our London damp specialists

From penetrating damp caused by wind driven rain to black mould in a poorly ventilated property, every damp problem in London is unique. This can be a headache for London'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 London

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

Woodworm treatment in London

At Peter Cox we don’t just treat damp problems. If you have noticed timber damage in your property it could mean you have a problem with a woodworm infestation. The woodworm specialists at our London branch can conduct a full and comprehensive woodworm survey that will consisit of the following:

  • 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

If you have spotted any of the signs of woodworm in your property, contact our London team today.
