Having carried out a visual inspection, as well as a thermal imaging inspection, we were able to identify that the dampness recorded in the wall had led to cold spots to the wall – thus allowing the moisture content in the internal environment to condense on the internal walls. This then allows for the ideal conditions for mould to develop.

In addition to the above, we also identified that the chimney breast to the first-floor bedroom was very damp due to a failed flashing to the shared stack above the roof. This was increasing the moisture content of the air within the property.

We submitted our report to the client along with a recommendation to repair the problems and budget costs to carry out said repairs.
