Rising Damp Treatment

Our company will diagnose rising damp if it is there.  We diagnose your damp issue correctly.  We don’t simply recommend that you have a chemical damp proof course installed in order to make money off of you.  We actually determine whether or not your issue is rising damp.  You need to be aware that it is very rare for rising damp to be present in buildings.  A majority of UK properties have physical damp proof membrane already installed and it’s doing a great job still.

Getting the proper diagnosis is the most critical part when it comes to beginning to deal with dampness.  A new damp proof solution can be installed and the area can be replastered, however if the major problem isn’t fixed then the damp will just return. Bituminous damproofing products can be used to seal the property and we ensure the property is completely moisture proof.

Atlantis also provide dry rot and wet rot treatment. First we diagnose all of your timber decay issues carefully.  It can be difficult diagnosing wet rot from dry rot and many people get this work every day.  The costs to treat these two kinds of wood rots are very different.  That is why we impress upon our clients why it is so important that the decay be properly diagnosed.  Treating dry rot can cost you approximately £5000, whereas treating wet rot may cost only about £500.

There isn’t any easy way of determining whether timber decay is dry rot or wet rot or eliminating dry rot.  That is why a timber survey needs to be conducted.  We will send a dry rot specialist out to your location to diagnose your issue correctly.  They can tell you whether the decay you have is wet rot or dry rot.  After the decay has been diagnosed, they will recommend the necessary and proper treatments.

Condensation Control

We are experts in condensation problems.

Condensation is the most common type of dampness inside a building.  Condensation is very difficult to control.  It may cause mould to grow inside a room or result in a damp smell.  In order to control condensation, it is necessary to find the humidity source.  Condensation is created by breathing, taking showers, washing clothes and cooking.

The best way of stopping condensation from affecting your house is installing fans in the right parts of your property.  That will help to prevent humidity from condensing on cold surfaces and from flowing around your property.

There are a few other things that we recommend that you try to help deal with particular bad condensation cases.  Keep your heating on all during the cold season, just on a low temperature rather than a full one.  That will help to keep your property’s cold walls warm and also help to prevent condensation from taking place. We also recommend that you dry clothes outdoor as much as you can, and to open the windows when you dry them inside.
