Case Study

River flood damage

Our senior surveyor was called to one property in central Carlisle where a firm of flood recovery 'specialists' (who also happen to be a firm of carpet cleaners!) were insisting they could not arrange replastering of a flood damaged house until it had sufficiently dried out. The home owner had been hearing this same old excuse for months and decided to get a professional opinion. Our senior surveyor was duly instructed and carried out calcium carbide tests at several key positions throughout the house. The resultant readings were normal, the house was in fact within the normal expected moisture levels for a house of this type and was able be replastered immediately.

Our surveyor asked the home owner exactly how tests had been done by the other firm, the home owner pointed to the tell tale signs of where the test samples had been taken, our surveyor was amazed to discover the other company had been carrying out tests below the damp proof course (where most old properties are continually damp anyway), the home owners had consequently been out of their home for several months due to an inexperienced contractors error. Who knows how long that would have continued had our specialist surveyor not been called in.
