Professional Damp Proofing
As your local damp proofing specialists, we have much to offer our Cricklewood customers. Here is a few of our more popular services…
There are several methods of damp proofing that are effective against penetrating damp, rising damp, and other forms of moisture transmission. We have years of experience fitting damp proof membranes and applying damp proof course injections, both of which are effective ways to prevent further damage from damp. We perform a detailed initial damp survey to determine the best solution.
Rising damp is a common condition found in damp surveys of many older buildings across Cricklewood. It is caused by capillary action – that is, by water being drawn up from the ground through porous brickwork, mortar, and timbers. Rising damp leaves a distinctive tide mark on affected walls. With proper treatment, it can be easily remedied and restored to its original condition.
Wet Rot and Dry Rot
Wet rot and dry rot are highly destructive conditions that damage plaster, woodwork, and masonry alike. Usually occurring as a result of water ingress, it is important to identify the source of damp and mould, as well as removing the rot itself. We provide a fast and effective wet rot and dry rot removal service for customers across Cricklewood.
Woodworm doesn’t just refer to a single species of pest, but whole range of wood-boring beetles common to the UK. These insects make holes in your timber, into which they lay their eggs. The resulting larvae then chew on the wood as they mature, weakening it. Fortunately, we have a range of chemical solutions to treat any insect infestations.
Structural Water Proofing
Structural water proofing is normally applied to underground areas, or those with earth-retaining walls. Our damp surveys usually locate these in basements and cellars in domestic properties, as well as underground car parks and similar facilities at commercial workplaces. The process prevents water leaching into your property through contact with the natural earth on the other side of its walls.
Rendering and Plastering
Removing the damp and rot is only part of the solution as permanent damage has often been done to your interior and exterior walls. At Olympic Preservation Ltd, we deliver a rendering and plastering service to repair that sort of damage. Once your walls have dried out, we use quality rendering and plastering to get them looking like new.
Condensation is a common complaint in many Cricklewood homes. Caused by water vapour in the air coming into contact with cold windows and walls, in certain circumstances it can result in black mould or fungal infestations. There are several ways to treat it, including fitting a new ventilation system to eradicate the humid air, or using an anti-condensation paint.
