Independent Qualified Mould & Damp Surveyor

Derek Carmichael Independent Damp Surveyor

Derek is CSDD qualified – certified surveyor in damp detection – our head Independent Damp Surveyor in the South & South East areas of the UK. Covering areas Dorset, Hampshire, Poole, Southampton and Portsmouth.

Serving postcodes DT, BH, SP, SO, and PO.

Have you been told you have Rising Damp and need tanking? Simply tanking your walls is expensive and traps damp in your home. We find the cause.

Once you know the cause the remedy is usually simple and inexpensive.

With over 15 years experience in dealing with several different damp problems and solutions, Derek will carry out an Independent damp survey that is completely unbiased. Using a selection of essential tools and extensive knowledge, Derek will never suggest carrying out any remedial work unless it is absolutely necessary.  The report can be given to you verbally or written depending on what you require.

Some firms will advocate simply to paint or plaster over the mould and damp but that is no cure. That will only cover it up. It won’t stop the mould being a hazard to health.

Whether you have Condensation in Christchurch,  Damp in Dorchester, Black Mould in Bournemouth, or Weevels in Weymouth, our independent specialist surveyor will be able to help you.

Further to your Damp Survey of 5th February, I had meant to tell you that we were subsequently able to come to an arrangement with the window fitter for him to return and fit lead flashing along the join between conservatory and house. We have had fairly heavy rain on a number of occasions since and I am pleased to inform you that there have been no leaks!

Many thanks for your assistance with this, and also with pointing out the other areas of concern.

Thank you for coming today – great service, very knowledgeable and I feel confident in what I have to do to sort it.
