Independent Damp and Mould Surveyor

Robert Horne CSRT

Robert Horne is the founder of Damp Detectives started in 2006


Starting with a fire and flood restoration business, Robert has since worked to gain skills in all areas around mould and damp.

Robert realised that in almost all cases, the cause of mould ,damp and condensation in homes was misdiagnosed and the resulting costly treatment often ineffective or missold.

Damp Detectives was formed to provide a truly unbiased and independent damp survey to show the true cause of damp, mould & condensation using scientific analysis. This means that any work that is recommended is unbiased and will only be suggested if it will actually resolve the source of the problem.

Robert Horne is a CSRT surveyor with the Property Care Association and is CSDD qualified – certified surveyor in damp detection – For more information please visit www.property-care.org.

He also acts as single joint expert in Civil Court disrepair cases and attends the All Party parliamentary Group (APPG) on Healthy Homes in the UK.

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

Katherine, London

I needed a damp surveyor to assess my flat in Croydon for some persistent mould issue. My surveyor (Maura Ogunbiyi) was so thorough and went above and beyond to diagnose the issues and provide advice to how to tackle it. She was very professional and I would highly recommend.
