Damp surveys are an essential step in identifying and addressing damp issues in a property. At Empire Property Care, our team of highly skilled and experienced surveyors, technicians and tradesmen are experts in their field, and can provide a detailed and comprehensive damp survey that will help customers understand the specific causes of damp in their property and determine the most appropriate course of action for addressing the problem.

One major benefit of damp surveys is that they can help individuals and businesses who are in the process of buying or selling a property. Before making a purchase, it’s important to have a clear understanding of the condition of the property, and a damp survey can provide this information. This can help buyers make informed decisions and avoid potential issues down the road.

Damp surveys can also be helpful for businesses and individuals who are planning to renovate a property. Renovations can sometimes reveal hidden damp problems, and a damp survey can help to identify and address these issues before work begins. This can help to ensure that the renovation goes smoothly and that the property is left in good condition afterwards.

Identifying Rising Damp, Penetrating Damp, and Condensation

During a damp survey, our technician or surveyor will inspect the property to look for signs of damp. They may use a range of tools and equipment, such as moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras, to identify areas of high humidity or dampness. After the survey, the technician or surveyor will provide a detailed report that outlines their findings and recommendations for addressing any issues that have been identified.

One of the main issues that the surveyors will be looking for is rising damp, which is caused by water rising up through the walls of a building from the ground. Rising damp can cause damage to plaster and wallpaper, as well as create a musty smell in the property. Identifying rising damp early is important, as it can lead to serious structural problems if left untreated.

Another issue that can be identified through a damp survey is penetrating damp, which is caused by water entering a property from the outside. This can be caused by a variety of factors, including poor roofing, missing or damaged pointing, or defective guttering. Penetrating damp can lead to black or brown staining on walls and ceilings, as well as mold growth.

Finally, condensation damp can be identified during a damp survey. Condensation is caused by warm, humid air coming into contact with cold surfaces, such as windows or walls. This can lead to mold growth, peeling wallpaper, and rotting timber. Condensation is often caused by poor ventilation and insulation, and can be addressed through a range of measures including fitting extractor fans and adding insulation.
