Do You Have Signs of Damp in Your Property?

We do all kinds of building work, so it’s not uncommon for us to come across damp. We usually see signs of damp whenever we are carrying out a property renovation, basement conversion, loft conversion or fitting a new bathroom or kitchen. It’s more common than you think.

However, leaving damp untreated will only make the problem worse. The dampness will spread throughout the area, possibly causing structural damage and jeopardising your health. The longer you leave untreated damp, the more it’s likely to cost in repairs. We have been damp proofing in Wirral for well over 30 years, and the best advice we can give is to try to catch it early before the problem gets worse.

Here are Some of the Signs of Damp to Look Out for:

  • Musty smells – if you can smell a persistent musty odour in a room, that is usually a tell-tale sign of dampness. Musty odours usually occur in basements, bathrooms and attics. Wherever there is moisture, there’s sure to be the musty smell of damp in the air.
  • Mould & mildew – if you can see mould and mildew growing on walls, ceilings or floors, that indicates too much moisture in the room. The underlying problem is usually damp and condensation.
  • Peeling wallpaper & paint – if your wallpaper keeps peeling away from the wall and the paintwork is blistering or flaking, you’ve got a problem with damp.
  • Condensation – if you always notice condensation on the windows and other surfaces in your home, it means that too much humidity is in the room, possibly caused by damp.
  • Rotting wood – if you’ve noticed rotting floorboards, skirting boards or window frames, that’s another tell-tale sign of damp. Wood rot spreads through the timber in your home and can cause serious structural issues.
  • Crumbling plaster – if you can see crumbling or flaking plaster on the walls, it’s a sure sign that you have dampness. Damp causes plaster to deteriorate and it begins to fall away from the walls.
  • Damp patches – if you can see damp patches on the walls or ceilings that don’t seem to be drying out, there’s a 99.9% chance you have a damp problem.

We Treat all Damp Issues

Whether you have problems with rising damp, penetrating damp or condensation we can help. We’ve been in the building trade for over 30 years and tackled every type of damp problem imaginable.

In that time, we’ve treated damp problems in terraced houses, semi-detached houses and bungalows throughout the Wirral and surrounding areas. Our knowledge, skills and experience are your best ally for effectively tackling damp and eradicating it for good.

Why do a lot of the Properties on the Wirral Seem to Have Problems with Damp?

Many properties on the Wirral were built in the 1930s–1940s. The older terraced houses and semi-detached houses in Wirral seem to have more problems with rising damp than the newer ones. Now, these houses weren’t built with modern waterproofing techniques in mind because they weren’t available at the time.

The damp proof course used to build these older houses aren’t up to modern standards and must be replaced. Many of these older houses have render covering the brickwork, making it more difficult to see rising damp from the outside of the property.

Wirral Building Services have spent a good part of the last three decades replacing these outdated damp courses and bringing them up to modern standards. If you have an old house that needs new damp proofing in Wirral, give us a call on 07700145484 to arrange a free survey. We will inspect your property, identify what’s causing the damp and give you a free no obligation quote to do the work.
