Ray Betts has been in business a long time and we have been fortunate enough to help many people who need a damp proofing service in Sefton. Occasionally we get referrals from estate agents whose seller has a damp basement that is turning buyers away. Other times the home buyer loves a home but wants to know if we can get rid of that musty smell that causes an instant headache. Sometimes the cause is easy to find and fix but others may require timber removal and replacement. It could be the homeowner does not notice seepage or odour unless there has been a heavy rain. It all goes away after it dries up. Only it doesn’t. Others smell it as soon as they go into the basement.
Our damp proofing service starts with a survey of the house, inside and out. Maybe some homeowners in Sefton need a damp proofing service because they removed shrubbery that was close to the house foundation. The soil and roots were just high enough and dense enough to keep water draining away from the foundation. The change in landscaping was enough to cause seepage along one basement wall. Somewhere along that wall water has found a way inside. If it is not repaired now, the volume of water will likely increase over time but even if it doesn’t, mould will grow causing unhealthy air quality especially for those with allergies and asthma.
You may need a damp proofing service in Sefton and not even know it. You may not see water or smell mould but one day you notice a water stain on a wall. Water has found its way into your attic who knows how long ago and is only now penetrating walls. There have been instances where people pushed on their shower wall only to have the wall give. They never knew water was leaking in the wall. Call Ray Betts Damp Proofing if you suspect you have a damp problem in your home or if you want to make sure you don’t. If you are planning to sell your home, a clean bill of health from Ray Betts is a great selling feature.
