Paul’s Qualifications

Paul holds a CSDD (Certified Surveyor in Damp Detection) qualification and is authorised to conduct fully comprehensive inspections of a wide range of damp related issues.

By finding the root cause of the problem, Paul will be able to find the source of mould, damp and condensation issues.  Using specialist equipment, experience and knowledge, Paul will show you how to resolve your damp problem permanently without incurring excessive costs.

What Areas Does Paul Cover?

Paul conducts Damp surveys throughout Croydon, Twickenham and Sutton and across all CR, TW and SM postcodes including:

  • Croydon
  • Caterham

  • Twickenham
  • Ashford

Paul is familiar with the various housing styles across this region and understands how to recognise and treat damp problems such as black mould, dry rot, wet rot and woodworm.

Condensation and mould that can build up in your home over time will not only bring about unsightly issues that can cause extensive damage to your property but they can also lead to a wide range of health problems.  By reducing humidity levels you can prevent condensation appearing on walls and windows.  Paul can offer advice on how to prevent these issues from occurring and returning again in the future.

Who Are Paul’s Clients?

Paul has a versatile range of clientele and will always provide an independent service.  You will not be sold anything other than expert advice and will never be advised to carry out any unnecessary work on your property.

How Does Paul Work?

Paul is one of our Damp Detectives and is part of a national independent company. He will deliver the best,  high quality service that will find the source of your damp and mould problem.

1. Ethical quoting

You can contact Paul for an initial, no obligations assessment where a preliminary estimated quote for the survey will be provided. These surveys provide great value for money and typically cost less than a standard home buyer’s survey.  Paul will also provide an overview as to what areas of the property will need to be accessible and inform you of what will need to be inspected.  This will form a contract between both parties and will be sent to you by email.

2. Quick Response Time

We aim to conduct your survey as quickly as possible.  If during the initial assessment Paul feels unable to complete the survey in the specified time he will let you know immediately.

3. Site Visit

A survey for a small residential property usually takes approximately 3 hours.  If you are happy with the free assessment then Paul will arrange to come and visit the property.  If necessary he will liaise with tenants, estate agents or the property owners to gain access to the property and undertake the survey.  Where necessary Paul will also check on the effectiveness of remedial actions which might have taken place in the property.

4. Survey Report

Paul will gather all of the necessary information to draft a report during her visit. If you request a written report, he will then send this to you via email in a PDF format within 7-9 days from the receipt of payment, which is due on completion of the survey.

The report includes a variety of elements including a wider scope survey of the entire property as well as:

  • Your details
  • Details about the property being surveyed
  • Details about the Surveyor
  • Your specific instructions
  • Observations on your instructions
  • Our own observations of the property inside and out including sketch diagrams.  We can track moisture through floors, walls and ceilings to give you an unbiased, definitive reason for any issues you are having and recommend the type of treatment.  We use the latest damp detection equipment and techniques to ensure the areas in question are thoroughly inspected.
  • Observations on elements relating to the survey (e.g. recent weather)
  • A description of the property and its orientation in the landscape and to the sun
  • What restrictions were in place that could have prevented an inspection
  • Conclusions and recommendations based on saving you time and money.

If you need further clarification on anything in the report or if you are unsatisfied with our findings, Paul will be happy to arrange as many appointments as necessary to clarify anything. All revisits are subject to an additional reduced fee.

Maura was very professional throughout the process; the initial enquiry, appointment, investigations and explanation of the cause of the dampness. She is very knowledgeable and provided a detailed report with recommendations to resolve the damp issue. I am pleased to report there is no more damp in the room in question.

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.
