Penetrating Damp Treatment

How we treat penetrating damp?

You can’t just paint over penetrating damp and hope it goes away. If you don’t fix the cause, water will continue to eat away at your property until what could have been a quick fix becomes a serious and expensive structural issue.

There are many causes for penetrating damp, from blocked gutters or decayed pointing to broken plumbing and cracked walls. Any route that unwanted water can take into your property can cause penetrating damp.

Treating penetrating damp is part detective work, part craftsmanship. Our damp experts will first perform a top-to-bottom survey of your property to identify what’s causing your penetrating damp, then fix it with special damp proofing materials and a flawless finish.

lateral Damp Treatment

How we treat lateral damp?

Noticing the signs of lateral damp is the first step to getting it fixed. The most important signs to look out for are:

  • Peeling paint with a bubbly appearance
  • Discolored or crumbling plaster
  • Walls that are cold and wet to the touch
  • Presence or smell of mould

If you notice any of these symptoms, then there is a good chance that you are experiencing lateral damp in your property, and it is time to call in the damp professionals at Environ Property Services to solve your problem.

At Environ, we are committed to providing the highest quality damp solutions to our clients, since we know how damaging untreated damp can be to both our clients properties and their wellbeing. Our expert team of damp specialists are highly experienced and knowledgeable in all forms of damp treatment, and our goal is always to eradicate damp from our clients property quickly and effectively.

woodworm Treatment

How we treat woodworm?

  • A large amount of tiny holes in the woodwork
  • Flour-like “shavings” from the burrowing (known as frass)
  • Crumbling edges of wooden boards and joists
  • Damaged and weak flooring or timbers

If you notice any of these symptoms, then there is a good chance that you are experiencing woodworm in your property, and it is time to call in the professionals at Environ Property Services to solve your problem.

Damp Walls Treatment

How we treat damp walls?

Are your walls wet to the touch but with no signs of structural damp? Then there’s probably too much moisture in the air, which is settling on the walls as condensation.

Condensation is the most common cause of damp, and luckily it’s also the easiest and cheapest to fix. Our damp treatment involves installing a PIV unit in your property that will push out the wet, stale air and keep your walls and windows dry and mould-free.

We provide the cheapest PIV installation in London and, like all our damp treatments, we include a guarantee that your damp won’t return. And with a running cost of just pennies a day, you can get rid of condensation without breaking the bank.

Damp Survey

Whether you’re a family home or a bustling business, our damp surveys are a good choice.

This survey tells you what’s causing your damp, what we can do to fix it, and how much it would cost. Our damp experts are always happy to show you what they’ve found and explain their solutions.

You’re under no obligation to go any further, but we’re confident that you won’t find a more experienced and friendly team of damp specialists.

Why Going To A Damp Specialist London Is Important

Although there are a lot of damp kits for DIY projects out there, you should still seek the help of a professional to treat damp issues. If your house has condensation and moulds that won’t go away no matter what you do, then damp specialists should be able to find the root cause of the problem and eradicate it to prevent further damp problems.

If the damp issues keep coming back because you are treating the symptoms, rather than the cause of the problem, you and your family’s health will be at risk. Damp and mould in your house can cause respiratory infections, allergies, asthma, and even worsen the immune system.

The more vulnerable among us, such as babies and elderly people, as well as those who have respiratory problems, weak immune systems, and skin problems will be the most affected by the adverse effects of damp and mould.

In addition to the health risks, when taking a damp problem into your own hands you might also misdiagnose the real problem and damp type that your house has, or you may end up spending a lot of time and effort treating your house when there might be no damp issue at all! Asking for a free quote from a trusted damp specialist will give you the assurance that your home does need a damp treatment procedure.

And even if you are sure that your house has damp issues, treating them can still be exhausting. Some treatments involve digging around your external walls, removing bricks, making thorough inspections on top of your roof, and more.

Large and more complicated houses with extreme cases of damp can also be difficult to treat for the average homeowner. So if you don’t have the time to do all these things, it’s better to leave it to the experts and be sure that you can get the job done properly.

Avoid Penetrating Damp By Maintaining Your Home

Penetrating damp appears on walls and joinery that are prone to prolonged wetting due to poorly maintained rainwater fittings, hairline fractures in pointing, and roof leaks. It can also be caused by overflowing sinks, shower trays, and baths as well as damaged burst pipes and tiles.
You will instantly know that you have penetrating damp if the patches on your walls darken when it rains. Moreover, penetrating damp usually spreads horizontally instead of vertically.

Properly maintaining your home is one of the best ways to prevent damp problems from happening. Here are some tips:

Find leaking pipes and have them fixed. Always look for leaks where water escapes from both internal and external pipes.

Regularly check your roof, walls, and windows for any problems. Any small cracks and holes are basically welcoming excess moisture into your house.

Clear overflowing gutters as the water that they hold can spill down your walls.

Replace old porous bricks or paint them with an exterior silicone water-repellent paint.

Have professionals in waterproofing and damp proofing clear your wall cavities for you. Debris may get stuck into the wall cavity, resulting in water taking a direct route through to the interior walls.

Regularly Checking For Damp In Your Home

Damp issues can worsen as time goes by, especially if you continue to ignore it. If you see even a small sign of damp, it is important that you immediately use damp proofing London services so that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on serious structural repairs later.

With that said, regularly check for damp issues in your house. Examine the walls, floors, and ceilings as these are the areas where mould and mildew usually form.

One simple trick is to run your hands across the suspected area. If you feel plaster salts – white deposits that were washed out of the bricks and transferred to your plaster – then you most likely have a damp problem.

Wallpapers also show visible signs of mould and mildew by peeling and lifting. If you run your hands over the wallpaper, you may even hear a crunching sound caused by the plaster salts.

But the best and most efficient solution is to call one of our damp specialists and tanking experts, we are well-equipped to quickly identify the main cause of your damp problem and get it treated. Call us today, and let us do the hard work!

Controlling Air Moisture Condition In Your Home

One of the main causes of moulds and mildew is condensation. You can control the air humidity and keep the surfaces above dew point temperature by using simple methods, such as opening windows for proper ventilation.

If you have non-condenser tumble dryers, then they should also be vented to the outside. Additionally, avoid hanging your clothes to dry indoors.

You can also use dehumidifiers to keep air moisture levels down, though nothing can match the effect of efficient heating and sufficient ventilation.

Lastly, eliminate condensation in chimney flues by using the proper linings. You can also fit sealed flues with ventilation grilles or have them re-opened. If you have a loft in your house, make sure that they are well ventilated and insulated too.

For a damp survey and treatment, call Environ Property Services today! We will be more than happy to go out of our way and solve your property’s damp problems, no matter the extent of the problem!


First, our damp specialist will remove the old plaster on the damaged surface. We will cut the damp proofing membrane to the appropriate size and place it on the wall. Next, we will drill and fix the damp proofing membrane onto the walls to ensure a tight fit.
Most damp proofing companies take around 3 to 4 days to treat damp. However, the total time that it takes to install the damp proof course can vary depending on how serious the damage is.
There are some differences between damp proofing and waterproofing. The former is done to keep soil moisture out of the house while the latter keeps out both moisture and liquid. Moreover, tanking services can be required in areas where severe soil-water issues exist.
Putting on the heater in every room of your home may help in preventing damp as leaving areas unheated can result in cold spots, which encourage dampness. However, if you have recurring damp problems, you should get a professional damp survey London.
Dehumidifiers are capable of drawing out excess moisture from the air. This is a preventive measure against damp on walls, condensation, and mould growth. However, recurring damp issues will need the expertise of a professional for it to be gone entirely.

Yes, you can, but a damp issue may significantly affect the sale price of your home. If you have severe damp problems, like penetrating damp, lateral damp, or rising damp, we encourage you to consult our damp specialists for some solid advice.

There are some signs that your house needs damp proofing or waterproofing services:

  • The floors, walls, and ceilings are damp or feel cold.
  • Some areas in your house have a musty smell.
  • There are moulds and mildew on the walls, ceilings, and floors.
  • Your wallpaper lifts or peels.
We advise you not to use any permanent decoration such as wallpapering for the first 12 months after damp proofing. However, once you wait for 4 to 8 weeks for the visible signs of damp to disappear. Then, you can use a water-permeable emulsion paint on your walls.
Damp proofing costs may differ based on the supplier and the area you’re located in. However, a rough average is £70 per wall metre. The cost may also increase if you plan on treating all of the walls in your house.

For serious damp issues, seek help from one of our experts in waterproofing and damp proofing.

Afterwards, you will have to maintain your home to prevent damp problems. Here are some tips:

  • Wipe down your windows and sills each morning.
  • Ensure proper ventilation and insulation, and keep your home heated.
  • Never hang wet clothes inside.

I chose to use Environ to deal with a damp wall, the whole process from beginning to end has been straightforward, well explained and they've managed to strike a pleasing balance between friendliness and professionalism. Everyone they sent over during the course of the work, as well as their office staff has been, nice helpful and accommodating. I hope not to need to use them again but if I do, I'll do so gladly!

Came round to have a look at work required and actually realised it was all low level work. Explained and showed what was required. They can back about a week later (or thereabouts) to carry out the work which was done very quickly (about an hour if I recall). Because it took less time than was originally thought have not been charged for the materials so was very happy about that.
