Why Damp Proofing in Social Housing Matters:

Damp in social housing can lead to a myriad of problems, from structural damage to health issues for the inhabitants. It’s not just about the immediate impact; damp can have long-term consequences on the fabric of the building and the well-being of those who live there.

At Advanced Damp Ltd, we understand these challenges and offer comprehensive solutions to protect your properties and the people within them.

“Damp affects over 900,000 homes in England alone, according to the English Housing Survey. Plenty of those come under the social housing umbrella, with 4% of social-rented properties thought to be affected.”

What is a damp survey and why is it important for social housing?

A: A damp survey involves a thorough inspection of a property by a damp proofing specialist to identify any signs of damp, its causes, and the extent of any damage. It’s crucial for social housing to ensure the health and safety of residents, prevent structural damage, and maintain the integrity of the property over time.

Q: How long does a damp survey take?

A: The duration of a damp survey can vary depending on the size of the property and the complexity of the issues encountered. Typically, a survey can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours to complete. We strive to conduct thorough inspections with minimal disruption.
