Bedroom damp caused by poor air circulation

Left untreated, damp can be bad for both your health (the mould and spores can aggravate respiratory problems such as asthma) and the health of your property: If any form of damp is left unchecked it can cause a number of potentially serious issues, including damage to decorated surfaces, or timber decay and even wet rot, which can lead to structural deterioration, and may necessitate major repair costs.

Damp Proofing in Bath

Nestled deep in Somerset, the city of Bath has one of the greatest architectural treasures in the UK, namely the Royal Crescents. Designed by John Wood the Royal Crescents receive millions of visitors every year who come to marvel at the wonderful façade interspersed with Ionic columns.

Bath however can trace its architectural roots right back to the Romans for whom the area was of critical importance and the Roman Baths are a focal point for visitors to the city. Fed by hot springs the baths may have Roman origins but they are built with the local Bath Stone and like many other buildings within the city, they reflect the Georgian architecture of the 18th and 19th Centuries.

Outside of the city centre the architecture changes, driven by a post war review of housing and much of the housing stock was built in the 1950’s and 60’s and these buildings are not immune to damp problems. With a population of over 90,000 in the City it is essential that properties are protected from damp, and with such close proximity to the River Avon damp does sometimes cause problems in Bath.

We have been helping homes and businesses throughout Bath and the surrounding areas for over 20 years and have an unrivalled reputation for the eradication of damp in properties.

Damp Proofing in Balham

Famously parodied by Peter Sellers, Balham, ‘Gateway to the South’ is far cry from the wildly exaggerated claims made in that spoof documentary. The reality is that it is a suburb in the borough of Wandsworth and actually a thriving multicultural community.

Balham can trace its roots back to the Domesday book and has been settled continuously since Saxon times. Balham itself grew up surrounded by four areas of common land, namely Clapham common, Wandsworth common, Tooting Graveney common and Tooting Bec common although the latter two are referred to collectively these days as Tooting common.

The housing stock in the area, which is bounded by Brixton, Norbury, Clapham and Streatham, is predominantly post war with some remarkable architecture including the wonderful art deco Du Cane Court. As you may expect with a wide range of property types in the area the incidence of damp in these can vary dramatically with adjacent homes suffering different problems. The good news is that at Damp Proofing Specialists we have had many years’ experience in this area and are able to quickly spot damp problems and provide a swift remedial cure.

We have been helping homes and businesses throughout Balham and the surrounding areas for over 20 years and have an unrivalled reputation for the eradication of damp in properties.

Gillingham is a town in the county of Kent and includes the settlements of Brompton, Hempstead, Wigmore, Parkwood, Rainham, Rainham Mark and Twydall. The name Gillingham is derived from Old English and means a “homestead of Gylla’s family” and was also referred to in old texts as Jillyingham Water – hence the G being pronounced as a “J”. In 1667 a Dutch fleet sailed up the River Medway, laying siege to the fort at Sheerness and invading Gillingham. This became known as the raid on the Medway, and eventually resulted in the Dutch retreating, but still caused great humiliation on the British Royal Navy.

Chatham Dockyard was the main source of employment for the residents of Gillingham, with two thirds of it lying within the boundaries of Gillingham, but this was ceased for use as a naval base in 1984, leaving a significant number of residents unemployed. To counteract this Gillingham opened the Gillingham Business Park in order to rebuild its economic base and help to attract investments. Gillingham also hosts a street market twice a week and is the busiest market in the whole of the unitary authority of Medway.
