We have been solving Condensation and Mould problems in Somerset & Dorset for over 10 years now and pride ourselves on keeping up with the latest technology. In medium to severe cases one of our most succesful specifications is the installation of a Positive Input Ventilation System (PIV).
We like to think of ourselves as Condensation control & Mould eradication specilaists as we are constantly searching manufacturers and suppliers for the latest methods and equipment to fix your condensation problems. Often we will recommend a DIY solution which may be as simple as some lifestyle changes but in severe cases mechanical intervention is the only solution.
During a survey at a property in Somerset we found a number of minor damp related issues but the big problem was clearly Condensation. A musty smell on entry to the property, mould on window frames and excessive mould spotting to walls and ceilings on the first floor.
We have been installing Drimaster PIV (Positive input ventilation) units for nearly a decade now and the reliability and effective control of condensation is second to none. The latest version the Drimaster Eco Heat comes with a 7 year manufacturers warranty and can be installed in around an hour.
Whilst it removes the symptoms of condensation such as mould growth and damp musty smells it also improves air quality take a look at this Nuaire infographic animation
We have now fitted a number of the new range of Drimaster units with the most popular being the ECO heat version. The unit has the same excellent build quality that we have found throughout the Nuaire range and it seems quiter with a more efficient heater module.
A client contacted us with serious condensation issues in a large house in Bristol, mould spotting and water on windows had been bothering him for sometime.
After a comprehensive inspection we presented a remedial detail which included the installation of a Drimaster heat. This was to be installed in the loft to vent into the first floor hallway.
In February we were asked to carry out a damp survey on a small modern mid terraced house in a popular part of Bristol.
The property was built within the last 10 years and at present unoccupied. Mould spotting was extensive on window frames, walls and ceilings and there was a distinct ‘musty’ smell. The house was not fit for rental.
It's true summer is over and the cold weather is fast approaching and with it comes the scourge of mould….
Coloured moulds on handbags and shoes, fur on your delicate clothing. The backs of wardrobes and corners of your rooms plagued by mould spotting. Time to start mopping the window sills and squeegeeing the windows from the inside!
I once moved a baby’s cot from a wall while completing a survey and the pattern of the rungs remained on the wall in a thick black furry prominence, no surprise the child had a cough.
In July we were asked by a landlord to investigate condensation levels in a 3-bedroom semi-detached house in Bristol.
The property had just been vacated and now required complete redecoration works before it could be presented for rental again. Whilst in occupation the previous tenants had complained about mould growth on the walls and on possessions.
