Housing Association Portfolio

GDA Surveying Ltd was entrusted with the task of conducting over 100 independent damp and mould surveys on behalf of a registered Housing Association. These surveys covered residential properties throughout the United Kingdom, encompassing a variety of tenure types.

Housing Association Portfolio

The project encompassed several crucial elements:
Resident Liaison: GDA Surveying Ltd efficiently organised appointments with all residents, ensuring smooth communication and scheduling.

Visual Inspection:

A comprehensive assessment was conducted, examining visible signs of dampness and mould, such as water stains, discolouration, or mould growth on walls, ceilings, floors, and other surfaces.

Moisture Measurement:

Utilising specialised tools like moisture meters, the team identified areas with elevated moisture levels, offering insights into potential problem areas.

Building History:

Thorough research was undertaken to gather information on the building's construction, maintenance records, and any prior dampness or mould issues, aiding in understanding the root causes and recurring problems.

Occupant Interviews:

Interviews were conducted with occupants to gather valuable information about their experiences with dampness or mould-related issues, including incidents of leaks, condensation, or water infiltration.

Ventilation Assessment:
The effectiveness of the building's ventilation systems, such as fans, vents, and air circulation, was evaluated. Inadequate ventilation can contribute to dampness and mould growth.

Thermal Imaging:

Thermal imaging cameras were employed to identify temperature variations and potential areas of moisture accumulation behind walls, under floors, or in concealed spaces.
Building Envelope Inspection: The building's exterior, including roofs, gutters, windows, and doors, underwent a thorough examination to identify any potential sources of water infiltration or inadequate sealing.

By employing these comprehensive surveying techniques, GDA Surveying Ltd provided valuable insights into the presence, causes, and potential solutions for dampness and mould issues in the surveyed properties, contributing to healthier living environments for residents.
