What goes into a Hamilton Condensation and Mould Survey?

Internally our qualified expert will examine all walls for Condensation and Mould and map out a full moisture profile especially on walls where the symptoms are found. We will take and obtain scientific data, such as Atmospheric Moisture Readings, Surface readings, RH, Vapour Pressure, Due Point, Psychrometric Chart Analysis. Using instruments such as an Infra-Red Thermometer, Thermo Hygrometer, Protimeter and in some cases Data Loggers. 

All this Data will then be analysed to accurately identify what is causing the excess Moisture Vapour which is creating the Condensation and thus causing the Mould Growth. By means of investigation we will accurately identify the cause, type of Mould and what remedial works are needed to rectify the problem.

Condensation and Mould can have many causes and contributing factors within a property so our Surveyor will also investigate and examine these areas which will include lifestyle factors and Ventilation Inspection in Accordance with BS520-2002.

Our Condensation and Mould Surveyor will then compile a full written report (including where necessary a sketch plan detailing if remedial treatments need to be carried out or installed).

Should you have any questions about the report you will have the contact details for our damp and timber surveyor who will answer any questions you may have.
