Are you currently turning a blind eye to the damp in your property? Is the thought of the unnecessary expenditure dissuading you from taking action?Tri-County Preservation provides cost-effective, lasting solutions to your damp problems. Don't delay any further: take action.From the point of your initial consultation through to the eventual removal of all signs of damp in your property, we offer a service that is professional, thorough, friendly and reliable. We keep you informed of what measures need to be taken, not only to remove the damp, but to prevent it returning.The types of damp:Rising damp caused by moisture from the groundDamp caused by excessive condensationPenetrating damp caused by rain attacking the wallsDamp caused by salt contaminationDamp resulting from plumbing leaks or floodsDamp from the walls and floor drying outMany homes are not as well ventilated as they ought to be. Humidity caused by showering and cooking, amongst other things, can quickly lead to peeling wallpaper, damp walls and ultimately an unhealthy living environment.It depends on the severity of the problem. If the woodworm infestation is caught in its infancy, it will be a matter of treating the affected woodwork with insecticide, which not only kills the adult beetle itself, but the larvae that is the crux of the problem.Woodworm may not be readily visible to the human eye, but the tell-tale signs of its presence will make themselves known to you before long. If your furniture and structural timber-work are riddled with tiny holes or a fine, powdery dust, then very likely they are being burrowed into and devoured even as you are reading this.Are you seeing bulges and horizontal cracks appear in your walls? In all likelihood, the cause of the issue is failed wall ties, resulting from substandard construction work or due to the age of the wall itself.
