Plumbing Leak Causes Dampness and Deterioration


This week our specialist damp surveyor visited a property in Swindon. The damp issues were initially thought to be caused by condensation, however, the surveyor identified elevated moisture meter readings which did not correlate with condensation nor rising damp. Further questioning and investigation led to the discovery of a severe leak which was emerging from the cold water feed to the bathtub in the adjoining bathroom.

Dampness can have many different causes, some of which can be easily rectified. If left unresolved, however, water ingress can cause severe and costly damage to your home.

Specialist damp surveys should be carried out by a qualified damp proofing surveyor with a minimum of a CSRT (Certificated Surveyor in Remedial Treatments) qualification as required by the Property Care Association (PCA). All Biocraft South West surveyors have achieved the CSRT & CSSW qualification to carry out damp surveys.
