What We Do

We find and fix damp problems in properties using a ‘first principles’ diagnostic approach which concentrates on identifying the causes of damp, rather than dealing with the symptoms. Our service includes: –

  • Mould remediation

How We Do It

  • Obtain a detailed history and background
  • Moisture map the affected areas
  • Check for construction defects
  • Calculate dew points for condensation problems
  • Use a wide range of high tech equipment, including moisture meters, thermal imaging, and endoscopic cameras.
  • Provide a plain English report with survey results, conclusions, and recommendations.

Types of Damp

Our damp investigation specialists can survey and repair the cause of damp including:

  • Rising damp from naturally occurring ground water
  • Penetrating damp from rainfall
  • Water leaks from plumbing, drains and waste pipes
  • Hygroscopic damp from contaminated building materials
  • Condensation from lack of ventilation and extraction

Our Costs

Our cost for Damp Investigations will vary according to the brief we are given, but normally falls in the range of £195 – £295 plus VAT. This includes our surveyor for up to 2 hours on site, and a written report on the survey background, results, conclusions, and recommendations.

We would like to say that we have been very impressed by the service provided from The Damp Specialist Company from start to finish. We had expected the worst from our insurance company but thanks to you the claim has been settled 100%. Our kitchen and living room look better than before, I would recommend the PCPS group.

Adrienn and Gabor, Damp problems in Staines
I wish to thank you for your support and workmanship during our time of crisis! Your professionalism and persistence are much appreciated and we are very much enjoying having our home back! The work the PCPS group carried out was on time and to a very high standard, which was invaluable given the complexity of the situation.
Carmen, Damp Repairs in Croydon Surrey
PCPS always kept me informed as to what they were doing. The PCPS group were put under a lot of pressure towards the end of the works to finish up, as we had to move back in in November. Again, they did their very best to achieve this. So, in summary, I would absolutely highly recommend the damp specialist compant and would definitely use their services again, if the need occurred.
Charlotte, Damp issue in Walton On Thames

Dear Nathaniel,

Thank you and the damp specialist company all for your tidy ,first class work.

Ruby and Trevor Banks, Damp remediation in West Byfleet

I would thoroughly recommend The Damp Specialist Company to anyone who has water damage/damp issues in their property.  After spending a lot of money over a period of several years trying to identify and fix the cause of a damp patch in our guest bedroom, I contacted The Damp Specialist Company to see if they could help.  From the start I found the team to be extremely knowledgeable and professional.  Paul and his team carried out a thorough investigation to find the cause of the problem and then installed dehumidifiers to dry out the room.  We had a similar issue in another room which they were also able to help with, and in addition they installed a dry channel outside our property to help with another area of damp.  Throughout the process I have found The Damp Specialist Company team to be very reliable and hard working.  I am very pleased that I came across the company on the internet!
