David Taylor CSRT

David Taylor is head of damp surveying in the Midlands area of the UK, with an extensive knowledge of the damp and mould restoration industry. He has an excellent record in identifying the source of mould, damp and condensation in a property.

Areas Covered: Damp Detectives (Gloucester) covers the Midlands area; including Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Birmingham, Dudley, & Warwickshire.

As with all Damp Detectives, David believes it is important not to just inspect the most obvious part of the building in order to locate the source of the problem as the symptoms and problems are often in different locations. Our independent damp surveys include a thorough examination of all areas made available to us in the home to ensure all possible causes are discovered for your peace of mind and suggest simple realistic solutions.

Our damp surveys are guaranteed to be independent unlike those “free” surveys offered by damp treatment companies. These surveys are often very brief (minutes) and a pretence for selling you the set solution they offer regardless of the actual cause/s of the problem. Damp Detectives will never suggest remedial work unless it is necessary and always the most economic option.

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

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.
