Dampco is a family owned company run by a father (John - 0409 191 209) and son (Daniel - 0409 006 005) specialising in fixing all moisture and damp problems including rising damp, condensation problems, bathroom leaks, mould removal and water damage in the Melbourne area for over 30 years. We are specialists in identifying and remediating underground water leaks in basements and garages.
We are moisture identification and remediation experts and can expertly resolve any rising damp or other damp problems you may encounter - including the presence of condensation, musty odours and mould. Based in Melbourne, we frequently travel throughout Victoria solving moisture issues for homeowners, estate agents, and occupants of commercial premises. John and Daniel can both locate moisture and identify the entry points as causes of moisture in the indoor, subfloor and structural environment - and most importantly, treat the causes of the water ingress, dry the property properly and resolve any attendant environmental issues like rising damp, mould and condensation growth and plaster deterioration so there will be no return - guaranteed.
Once we've fixed the immediate rising damp, mould, condensation or waterproofing problem caused by excessive moisture, we can then give you a long term and permanent solution.
Moisture in any built environment is either caused by moisture penetrating from an external source - whether from a burst pipe, damaged sewer, overflowing bath, leaky tiles, floods - or from moisture caused by everyday life events like heating, cooking, breathing and showering. Unless treated correctly, moisture from either a lack of ventilation or from water ingress due to an event, can cause ongoing damp or mouldy conditions.
Whichever cause it is, the cause of the moisture and condensation build-up MUST be identified and resolved before building remediation can commence.
Removing moisture from a built environment is a two fold process:
Most buildings suffering from condensation build up and/or rising damp require both immediate moisture relief (short term) and permanent moisture relief remediation (long term).
The short term treatment eliminates the moisture from the internal environment quickly via fast drying down of the building using modern drying equipment which can include dehumidifiers, portable heat sources and air movement. At the same time, the visual effects of the excessive moisture - condensation and rising damp - will be remediated by hand.
Long term and permanent relief from internal moisture is often provided via internal ventilation increases, either via natural methods, or by introducing a mechanical ventilation system to the property. These waterproofing and damp proofing solutions are highly effective and proven to decrease moisture in buildings.
