Reading ➸ The Damp House: A Guide to the Causes and Treatment of Dampness Author Jonathan Hetreed – Tactical-player.co.uk
I thought a quick read, and I d know enough to fix problems Explained mostly in simple terms, it becomes apparent that it is not a simple issue I can t imagine another book that gets to grips with the subject so succintly Value for money Dampness Can Become An Enemy When It Invades Our Interior Space, When It Persists, When It Spreads And Damages Our Domestic Fittings, Finishes And Furnishings, When It Encourages The Growth Of Moulds That Threaten Our Health, And When It Stimulates The Spread Of Fungus And Decay In The Structure Of Our Houses A Major Industry Has Developed With Specialist Contractors But Such Contractors Sometimes Concentrate On A Single Treatment Rather Than Offering A Comprehensive Diagnosis Good information to work from There are lots of causes of damp and different ways to reduce and remove it Having moved into a house I knew had problems it gave me some idea of where to start When I had a professional surveyor round he saw the book and sat a while going through it and he seemed impressed. Useful information but takes time to digest and decide what action to take A great book full of great info. As a trainee surveyor, I brought this book to expand on my knowledge It has now become my go to book regarding dampness It explanations are easy to understand and helps identify the problem and offer solutions It has helped me on a few inspections as a point of reference for clients as well. Have been very impressed with every aspect of this book Have also found that my whole family have benefitted from it as damp problems arise.
