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.
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.
Damp and mould can make you more likely to have respiratory infections, … babies and children, elderly people and those with existing skin problems may suffer the most.
Having consulted a number of advisory agencies of this type over the years, I found their service to be very professional, confident and thorough; when they gave me advice I knew it could be trusted. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
Damp Detectives are an excellent company. They used their extensive knowledge and experience with help from their equipment to pinpoint the problem. For me it looked like grease on the walls, however it was established that a shower seal had broken and water had dripped over time onto the floor and caused mould to grow on the inside of the plasterboard in a different room. Problem solved.
