How our North London damp surveyors Can Help

HandyHumans offer a wide range of damp services tailored to your specific needs. The presence of damp and mould in your property can cause many long-term health issues. That’s why time is of the essence when booking a damp service. We provide thorough inspections and reliable damp-proofing services in North London which are backed with a guarantee so you can rest assured you receive the best service.

Common Issues:

Main causes of damp

If you notice black mould or mildew patches on any internal walls, ceilings or floors, you should immediately contact a damp specialist and get this resolved for your own health. Damp can be caused by many factors, but the most common are condensation and humidity, leaks, and rising or penetrating damp.

If you have patches of mould in a specific area, this could mean you have a leak, in which case we would recommend you immediately contact one of our leak detection specialists to stop it quickly and effectively.

Condensation happens when warm air filled with high moisture meets a cold surface. Addressing condensation can be time-consuming, but it is relatively straightforward. You just have to reduce the amount of moisture in the air and increase the ventilation of your property (this can be achieved if you open windows more frequently and use dehumidifiers).

Rising or penetrating damp issues are more complex and require a professional damp course treatment.

What is Damp Proofing?

Damp and mould can cause many issues in your property, including health issues. Damp proofing is a process that prevents the dampness from transmitting up your walls and damaging your property. Damp proofing is required if your home has rising damp (when moisture rises from the ground up via

capillary action) or if it has penetrating damp (when moisture is moving through the exterior of your property to your interior walls).

Through damp proofing, we prevent moisture from seeping in and causing more damage. This can be done either by painting the walls with a waterproof sealant, installing a drainage system, using a damp-proof course (DPC) etc. The damp proofing solution you will require depends on the severity of the problem and your type of property.

Damp proofing is essential to prevent mould growth and protect the structural integrity of your property as well as the health and safety of the occupants. Damp proofing is not a job that you can do on your own and that’s why we recommend booking our professional North London damp services so our damp specialists can assess the problem and recommend the most effective solution.

Common signs that you might have damp in your property include:

  • Decaying wood, such as skirting boards (typical for rising damp)
  • Visible damp patches
  • Black or green mould spores
  • Peeling, cracked or blistering paint
  • A musty smell

We understand that damp problems not only affect the visual look of your home but, more importantly, they can affect your health and compromise the structural integrity of your property.

HandyHumans use professional tools such as moisture meters which allow our experts to assess the moisture level in your property. This instrument allows us to see how moisture is spreading through the walls and ceilings of your property. After a damp treatment, moisture readings enable us to see the effectiveness of the treatment and establish whether your property is fully restored to its optimal condition.

Frequently asked questions

Whether you can get rid of damp permanently depends on how effectively the damp is treated and the ongoing maintenance. The most common long-term and cost-effective solution if you have rising damp is to get a damp-proof course (DPC). While this treatment can reduce the damp issues, proper maintenance (such as improving ventilation and using dehumidifiers) is the key in assuring your property remains-damp free. Consult our professional North London damp experts who can guide you towards the best approach for your specific situation.

Yes, according to the NHS “if you have damp and mould in your home you’re more likely to have respiratory problems, respiratory infections, allergies or asthma. Damp and mould can also affect the immune system”. It’s absolutely vital that you address the damp issues as fast as you can. Consult our professional North London damp experts who can guide you towards the best approach for your specific situation.

We would strongly advise you not to paint over damp. This will not address the root cause of the damp and the issue will most likely reappear shortly and cause more damage in the long run. There is no quick fix when it comes to damp problems. Consult our professional North London damp experts who can guide you towards the best approach for your specific situation and give you a long-lasting solution.

HandyHumans helped renovate my flat over the last year. They have always communicated well and been very helpful for any of my needs or requests. Nick was very handy with problem solving the plumbing of my small flat and installed the kitchen quickly. I look forward to living in the beautiful flat they have helped me put together.
