Noticed a musty smell or unsightly stains in your home? There’s a good chance you’re dealing with a damp or mould problem. These issues aren’t just an eyesore – they can cause serious damage to your home’s structure and pose health risks, making it important to address them quickly.

That’s where damp and mould specialists come in. Experts in identifying, eliminating, and preventing these types of issues in your home, they’re your best resource for getting your home back to a healthy, liveable condition.

Prokil is the go-to choice for damp and mould treatments in the South. Below, we take a closer look at the steps specialists (like those in our team) take to treat your home.

1. Property survey and detection

The first step is figuring out why you have damp and mould. Specialists will combine their expertise with technology like moisture readers to identify the type of damp (rising damp, penetrating damp, condensation etc.) and locate the root cause, whether it’s hidden leaks behind walls, condensation from poor ventilation, or issues with the building’s structure.

2. Repairs and treatment

Once they diagnose the culprit, they can recommend a targeted treatment plan. This might involve:

  • Addressing leaks in pipes or roofs, improving drainage around the foundation, or implementing targeted waterproofing solutions.
  • Removing and replacing affected areas like rotten floorboards or crumbling plaster (if the damp has caused deterioration).
  • Installing a damp-proof course or membrane as a barrier to prevent rising damp from seeping up from the ground or walls.
  • Removing mould using powerful fungicides while adhering to safety protocols.

3. Ventilation improvements

Good air circulation is vital for preventing damp and mould. Specialists can assess your ventilation and recommend improvements like installing extractor fans in bathrooms and kitchens to remove excess moisture, or introducing air vents to allow passive airflow throughout the property.

4. Preventative measures

Specialists aren’t just about fixing damp and mould problems – they can help you stop them before they even start. This could mean suggesting ways to cut down on condensation in your daily life, like drying laundry outside or cracking a window open now and then, or advising on proper insulation. They can also provide protective treatments for your timber.
