How Do I Start The Process?

Get in touch using the contact form, from there our damp detectives will contact you to gather as much information as they can from you and discuss an estimated quote.  If you choose to go ahead with the survey, Tim or Andy will book an appointment with you to visit the property and will liaise with any relevant parties where necessary in order to carry out the survey.

What Is Involved?

Our independent Damp Detectives will provide an independent, unbiased survey using specialist equipment to identify the root cause and suggest solutions to almost any mould, damp or condensation issue.

A survey of a smaller, residential property typically takes around three hours. The primary areas of concern will be investigated, along with a thorough property inspection to ensure that nothing is missed.  They will also inspect any remedial measures that may have been implemented and assess their impact on the property.

If you have requested a full report of the findings, this will be generated after the inspection. At this point, Tim and Andy can advise on any appropriate corrective actions that may be required to help mitigate the problem.

Each customer will receive:

Ethical Quoting – After a no obligation assessment you will be given an idea of the initial cost of the survey.  It’s worth noting that a survey is likely to cost less than a standard home buyer’s survey, offering great value for money.

Quick Response Time – If the required lead time for your survey is not possible after the initial assessment, you will be informed immediately. 

Site Visit – If you are satisfied with the initial assessment, a site visit will be arranged in order to complete the survey. 

Survey Report – During the site visit, our surveyors will collect all of the information needed to write a report. If you request a written report, this will be sent to you via email in PDF format within 5-7 days of receiving payment, which is due upon survey completion.  The report includes a variety of elements such as a wider scope survey of the entire property.

How Much Will A Survey Cost?

Over the years, Damp Detectives have saved our customers thousands of pounds in avoiding unnecessary remedial work.  Every situation and property is different and for this reason we are unable to offer a fixed quote to any of our customers for a damp survey. 

Get in touch and provide as much information as you can along with evidential images where possible.  This will help Tim and Andy better understand the problem.  Once you have decided to go ahead with the survey, they will be able to provide you with an estimated cost.  It is worth noting that a damp survey often costs less than a basic home buyer’s survey, offering great value for money.

Excellent service from Robert and Paul that got to the root of the problem


Great experience with damp detectives. We were having serious issues with damp and mould in our rented flat, and we couldn’t have found a solution without Robert’s detailed report. Thanks again!
