I went to Robert frustrated as I have had ongoing damp and mould for years in my flat that my service provider has constantly blamed on condensation from my lifestyle and hence refused to help me to solve. I was desperate as I now have a baby and mould has even grown on her cot. Robert immediately understood my difficult situation and was able to fit me in quickly. After a detailed and expert survey in my flat and my neighbour’s who also had severe damp he was able to conclude that the cause was not lifestyle or condensation but a leak in the roof that the service provider needs to fix. Knowing that I was going to use his survey to press my service provider into action he set some up data loggers which recorded the humidity in my flat over a two period to provide some extra data and graphs that my service provider will not be able to avoid. He’s taken a massive weight off my shoulders and allowed me to take control of the situation with my service provider.


I would recommend Robert’s service to anyone looking to buy a property who wanted to be sure it was in good order, or anyone living with damp and mould. Having spent the last three years becoming more and more frustrated with the property management agency responsible for maintenance in my block of flats, I now have an understanding of the root causes of my flat’s problem, and evidence which will hopefully resolve the situation once and for all. Robert is really friendly and understanding and very methodical in his approach
