Mould Inspections

Salt Analysis

Protect your property from the threat of rising damp. Salt analysis and calcium carbide testing is a simple method. Rising damp may cause chlorides and nitrates to travel up the affected wall, particularly if there is no damp proof course present and may leave salt deposits when evaporation takes place.

When systems are not performing as they should, this causes severe energy loss and excess heating bills so make sure you are get your moneys worth and contact us today.

Humidity Data Logging

In order to ensure our drying regime is on target, we can remotely monitor the relative humidity of the property that we are drying, as a result of this facility, our technicians can review the readouts hourly, daily or weekly whichever is the most appropriate thus ensuring our drying regime is effective resulting in reduced drying times.

Asbestos Testing

Asbestos is a common element in old buildings, or outside shelters added to prevent fire damage. It harmless when built into the structure, but becomes toxic when particles are airborne. Our team carry out asbestos sampling for testing in a laboratory covered by UKAS (United Kingdom Accreditation Service) testing accreditation. Ensure your premises are safe today.
