Why have a mould or damp survey?
If you see mould or damp in your house or property in Ireland there may be another problem elsewhere in your home. The solution is not always an obvious one and mould is often a symptom of a wider problem. A Damp and Mould survey can pinpoint the source of the damp and therefore the reason for the appearance of mould. We will also show you how to solve the problem which can often be solved very easily.
Mould is capable of growing on dry or painted walls as long as there is moisture in the air to sustain it, you would be surprised at how little moisture it needs! If you have mould that keeps appearing even after you clean it off your surface again and again then call us to find the source and show you how to stop the mould by fixing the problem not covering up the symptoms.
There are over 100,000 types of mould but generally only 23 which have been identified as possible health hazards and these all grow in damp homes. Some moulds are recognised as toxic but toxic moulds do not always produce toxins. All moulds are allergenic and it is generally accepted that exposure to higher than average mould levels can cause or trigger asthma in susceptible people.
We work with housing associations in Dublin, Wicklow, Kildare, Galway, Cork, Meath and Wexford as well as doing private mould & damp surveys. If you are a tenant and have mould or damp why not ask your landlord to contact us or call us for a second opinion.
If you are moving into a house and suspect that it has a mould or damp problem we can survey the entire property to ensure that it is not a long-lasting problem. If you are trying to sell your house but are having problems with mould or damp then call us to find the source.

We know that mould can be very dangerous to human health, particularly black mould, this type of mould could be fatal. It is often the root cause of many health issues such as allergies, asthma and other respiratory health issues. Mould growth spreads quickly and is fast in contaminating all surfaces and materials it touches, including clothing, furniture and other valuables.
Make sure you do not enter confined spaces with mould build up, without the appropriate safety gear, as exposure could be toxic and dangerous to your health.
