We investigate cases of damp and fungal damage in domestic and commercial properties in Dublin and surrounding areas, including Wicklow, Kildare, Meath, Wexford and Waterford.

Dampness investigations aim to diagnose the cause of damp problems and advise on suitable remedial work to address damp problems.

Rates are competitive and are subject to the size and location of the property or properties as well as the extent of the survey and report required.

The full range of dampness investigation techniques is described in ‘Diagnosing Damp’. Inspection can progress through ‘stages’ – from visual inspection, to use of damp meters, to use of salts testing kits, humidity sensors and viewing devices such as borescopes.

Our damp surveys are non-destructive, with a range of options to suit your specific requirements.

Many free surveys will come up with words like ‘Condensation’, ‘penetrating’ or ‘Rising Damp’ and then give you quotes for expensive remedies. However, that usually covers up the problem and it often comes back a few months later.

Damp problems are often simple to put right when you know where the source is. Mould Busters will find the source and show you how to solve the problem permanently and its the cheaper option.

A high proportion of damp problems in buildings are caused by condensation, rain penetration or rising damp. Dampness tends to do secondary damage to a building. The unwanted moisture enables the growth of various fungi in wood, causing rot or mould, health issues and will eventually lead to ‘sick building syndrome’
