Condensation Treatments proviced by Wessex Damp and Timber

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.

We provided a report and a specification for remedial works with a total cost of under £2500. Sounds a lot but this included a complete chemical clean down of walls and ceilings, a wash down of woodwork and a complete redecoration to include an anti mould additive in the paint. We also planned to install a Flatmaster 2000 heated unit to the central hallway.

The client contacted us in September and the works where completed, property ready to rent again!

But what did this really cost the landlord? Rental prices for that style of property in that desirable area would have been approximately £850 pcm! So may be as much as £7000 in lost revenue all because of a condensation problem that was sorted in under a week.

For this project we used ACS anti mould eradication additive which we obtain locally from acslimited.co.uk

Condensation in its simplest form is when moist air comes into contact with colder air or a colder surface and the water contained in the air is released to form condensation in the air or on the surface. It often results in black mould growth on walls and surfaces or you can see water droplets.

Aged and Period properties can often be cold and condensation will form on external walls, we can provide various types of solid insulation and often incorporate this with a level of damp proofing. Internal temperatures will improve and mould spotting reduces.
