When to call our Manchester damp specialists

Manchester is a city that is no stranger to damp and wet weather and this means damp problems come in all forms. Damp walls caused by cracks in brickwork or condensation and mould growth caused by poor ventilation are common problems.

This variety of damp issues makes it tricky for homeowners to correctly diagnose the source of damp . If you see any of the signs below we would recommend booking a survey with one of our qualified and accredited surveyors. The experts in our Manchester branch will determine the true source of your damp problem and recommend the best course of damp proofing treatment:

  • 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 Manchester

Condensation is the most common form of damp that will affect properties in Manchester 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 systemsair quality monitoring and thermal plaster solutions.

  • 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 Macnhester team today.
