  • Damp proofing

    Damp Proofing is a method of moisture control that prevents the buildup of damp within floors and walls throughout a residential or commercial property. One of the main causes of property damage throughout the UK is untreated underlying moisture, which can cause a variety of problems such as dry rot, wet rot and penetrating damp. Your home or business could suffer from serious structural damage if there are signs of damp that remain untreated for a length of time … so It is vital to eliminate the problem at the earliest possible stage!
  • Woodworm

    Woodworm is a collective term used to describe all the insects and pests that attack and feed on wood and timber.While there are a number of wood-boring insects, Common Furniture Beetle remains the most commonly found woodworm in the UK. It attacks soft wood structure, impacting its strength and stability.Other species that may attack timber structures include:House Longhorn BeetleWood Boring WeevilDeath Watch Beetle
  • Dry rot

    Dry rot is caused by a wood destroying fungus that impacts the strength and integrity of the wooden structure. Without the correct wood rot treatment, dry rot can progress very rapidly, leading to a rot outbreak. Dry rot can occur in any part of the home where there is moisture or dampness present. At Preservit Ltd., we have a team of experts who have an extensive experience in dry rot treatments. Our experienced professionals use their specialised expertise to locate the problem, determine its severity, and use a suitable dry rot treatment to eradicate fungal growth.
  • Penetrating damp

    Penetrating damp, which is also known as ‘rain penetration’, lateral penetration of damp through walls, roofs, windows, or doors.If left untreated, this can lead to more severe issues, such as wood rot, frost damage, and unsightly water marks on internal and external walls.What Causes Penetrating Damp?From leaking pipes to cracks in external walls, penetrating damp can be caused due to a variety of reasons. Some of the most common causes include:Defective roof coveringsPoorly installed windows and door framesCracked brickworkDefective guttering and downpipes
  • Wet rot

    Wet rot is a type of fungal decay that is caused by underlying damp, ventilation or condensation. Rooms with incorrectly ventilated sub-flooring or lofts tend to be common areas for decay. Various types of timber structures are potentially suceptible to a fungal attack. Wet rot infestations start when moisture or water comes in contact with timber for sustained periods. This enables the fungus to spore, resulting in the wet rot penetrating the wood and causing potential major damage.

RISING DAMP
Have you noticed a small patch of damp on your walls or floor or stained or perished wall plaster? Or maybe you can’t get rid of that damp musty smell in a room? These could be signs of a rising damp problem, and if left untreated, it may lead to mould growth and damage timber structures in your home.
If you are in doubt about the presence of rising dampness within your property, Preservit Ltd. can help. We will perform a thorough rising damp survey to examine your property and identify the source of rising damp and use a suitable damp proofing technique to eradicate the problem for good.

WET & DRY ROT
To avoid Wet & Dry Rot regular upkeep and maintenance is essential to ensure the comfort and curb appeal of any home. However, in spite of regular care, fungal infestation may damage the wooden structure of your building. If left untreated, fungal decay may lead to a structural failure of floor and roof timbers.
At Preservit Ltd., we specialise in dry and wet rot treatments. Utilising our deep expertise and moisture meters, we not only locate dry or wet rot, but also eliminate the underlying cause of the outbreak. To restrict the damage, our experts replace defective timber and undertake repairs where necessary to ensure optimal structural strength and stability.

PENETRATING DAMP
Have you noticed patchy black mould appearing on an internal wall? Or a watermark has suddenly appeared on the masonry? Patchy black mould, watermarks, damp musty smell, and damage to wall plaster roofing and timber are all signs of a penetrating damp problem.
Let Preservit Ltd. conduct a damp proofing survey and help you determine what might be saturating your walls with water.Depending on the underlying cause and the extent of damage, we will then employ a suitable damp proofing treatment to prevent future moisture from penetrating into your property.

CONDENSATION CONTROL
Condensation is the most common cause of damp problems in both homes and offices. It is caused by air condensing on internal walls, particularly in rooms with a lot of moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens.
If you are noticing damp in your home or office, don’t worry. Preservit can help you identify the cause of condensation and take necessary measures to manage and prevent condensation from damaging the aesthetics and comfort of your home.
