Matt is an inquisitive problem solver by nature and soon realised that in many cases the true cause of damp, mould and condensation in properties was often undetected and/or misdiagnosed with the resulting costly treatments often ineffective.
Matt has many years experience investigating causes of property damage for Insurance companies, Surveyors and Property Owners. This experience provides him with an excellent background in identifying and suggesting solutions to almost any damp or mould problem.
Our damp surveys include a thorough home inspection to ensure that all potential causes are identified. Written reports can be provided and discussed to document and explain any findings.
Our surveys are precise, thorough and detailed and utilise a variety of scientific instruments to track moisture, identify the root of the problem and provide a clear solution.
Damp Detectives was founded on the principle that surveys should be independent and that work should only be suggested if it will solve the problem. We believe in an ethical approach to business and are not looking to sell any one particular solution.
We are confident that you will be completely satisfied with Matt’s survey. For more information phone Matt on 07980 745561 or email via the contact form
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.
Calling in damp detectives was money well spent. As a first time homeowner the appearance of damp was concerning, especially as we were unsure of the potential causes and did not know who to call. The service we received from Matt was timely, professional, comprehensive, independent and informative. It has enabled us to understand the issues, look to put in place protective measures and look at ways to ensure long term prevention. We feel we received honest and value for money advice, and would recommend damp detectives to anybody in this position.
I commissioned Mr George to investigate my 1900’s built house as there were specific areas showing signs of damp/mould on walls. He carried out a tier 2 survey (whole house) lasting approximately two an a half hours. I found him to be extremely thorough , explaining the outcome of tests and their likely causes in plain language. At the end of the survey conclusions were discussed with us and advice offered to eliminate the problems. Matt has a pleasant disposition and easy to communicate with. I would recommend him as a truly independent consultant.
