Damp and mould are caused by excess moisture. Moisture in buildings can be caused by leaking pipes, rising damp in basements or ground floors, or rain seeping in because of damage to the roof or around window frames, drying washing in homes, no ventilation in bathrooms / other rooms, this is what causes and gives the chance for mould spores to grow. In a newly built home damp can occur if the water used when the house was built is still drying out.
Excess moisture indoors can also be caused by condensation. Condensation forms when the air indoors can't hold any more moisture. Cooking, showering, drying clothes indoors and breathing without adequate ventilation can all cause excess moisture. Droplets can form on indoor surfaces such as mirrors, windowsills and on walls, particularly when they're cold. You can help by drying washing outside, opening windows, allowing air to circulate, but this will not eleminate the problem.

Installed Kair Flat Ventilation System, “Work was carried out efficiently and neatly and clearly every effort had been made to clean up afterwards. The work took longer than scheduled - into second day - due to difficulty boring holes through re-inforced concrete (not anticipated) but this did not inconvenience me as flat is unoccupied at present. Allround a very friendly and helpful workforce. Very satisfied with outcome and would recommend this firm.”

Fixing a damp problem and re-plastering, “We had a damp problem in our hallway and a number of contractors looked and quoted for the work. Top Joints were the only company to properly look into what had caused the problem and did not automatically assume we had rising damp (old house, no DPC). It turns out a leaking stop cock was causing a localised problem, yet everyone else tried to sell us a DPC. Once the real problem had been identified, Top Joints' quote and plan of remedial action was very competitive and we were happy to give them the work. Everyone we dealt with was courteous and polite and queries were responded to quickly and professionally. I would recommend Top Joints.”

Disruption was minimal despite working in three separate rooms and the loft. This included cutting through three ceilings and fitting inlet and outlet vents through external walls. Kept informed of progress during the day. Quickly resolved small technical issue after installation. Would thoroughly recommend this company..”
