If you’re in need of dampness surveyors for commercial purposes, look no further than Garratt’s Damp & Timber Ltd. Whether you’re a building contractor or a property manager, you have a duty of care to provide individuals with buildings that are safe for habitation. This means ensuring the property is protected against damp and rot, as not only can the effects of these cause health problems, but they can result in structural damage. To that end, detailed below is what can be gained from a commercial damp survey.
First and foremost, a commercial damp and mould surveyor will inform you about whether your property is suffering from penetrating damp or if it could fall victim to this in the future. If it already has a penetrating damp problem, we will propose a course of treatment to eradicate this from the property. Should we foresee that the property could become affected by penetrating damp in the future, we’ll offer advice about the most appropriate course of action and will proceed with such if you choose to continue with our services.
Penetrating damp isn’t the only form of damp you need to worry about, as rising damp can also present itself as a problem. As with penetrating damp, we will assess whether your property is already suffering from rising damp or if it’s likely to in the future. From this, we may propose a damp proof course to protect the building from such.
A damp survey won’t just reveal problems associated with damp; it will also allow us to identify complications with your timber, including dry rot. While we don’t provide rot proofing services, we can identify rot in its earliest stages and propose a course of treatment before it takes hold.
Wet rot can also be a problem in commercial properties, and this is another defect that we can identify during a damp survey. Even in the earliest stages of wet rot development, we can identify it and suggest a course of treatment to eliminate it from your property.
Naturally, you want to be able to trust the company that’s dealing with your commercial properties. Fortunately, Garratt’s Damp & Timber Ltd. has all the necessary qualifications to assess and protect your buildings. This includes the following:
