“Awaabs Law “

Awaabs law has been in effect since febuary the ninth 2023, Landlords need to be aware how serious this is for them.

Denis Bromell- Thank you, we couldn’t have done it without you. Yesterday, we watched the emotional moment when Awaab’s Law passed through Parliament for the final time. It has now become law. This never would have happened without the support of people like you, speaking out and taking action like signing this petition. Will you help celebrate this important victory by forwarding this email to a friend, or sharing the news on social media?

The Awaab’s Law campaign began last November, after two year old Awaab Ishak died due to mould in his home. In the following weeks after the inquest, The Manchester Evening News started a petition which grew by over 150,000 in just nine days. On the tenth day, because of all the pressure from people like you, Michael Gove met with the family and made a commitment to making Awaab’s Law a reality.  9 months later, we watched as Baroness Scott moved the legislation through Parliament with these words: “I know that Awaab’s father is watching today, and I know that I speak for all of us when I say that my thoughts remain with the Ishak family. This law will make a real difference to people’s lives, and I hope that brings some degree of comfort to all of those who knew and who loved Awaab.” Awaab Ishak’s death should never have happened. You, the Manchester Evening News, Awaab’s family and lawyers, came together to stand up to social housing bosses. It’s because of this collective action that legislation was brought forward to help make sure no one dies because of mould in social housing again.  Watching Awaab’s Law being written into legislation is a moment I will never forget – thank you so much for using your voice to make it happen. Please help spread the word that people power works by sharing the news.

Black Mould.

Black mould in your home or business is very easy to cure if you know-how, otherwise it can be almost impossible to eliminate, returning time and again after cleaning.

  • Runny nose
  • Red eyes
  • Skin rash
  • Asthma attacks

waterproofing cavity walls .to allow insulation in exposed areas. BEIS Research Paper Number: 20

2| P a g executive Summary Introduction and approach to the study UCL and BRE have investigated the effectiveness of waterproofing treatments to reduce rain penetration in unprotected masonry cavity walls on behalf of the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The aim was to establish whether the use of such treatments could safely allow wall cavities to be insulated as a retrofit measure in exposed areas, where such insulation was otherwise deemed unsuitable due to the increased risk of moisture ingress. A key feature of this study has been to acknowledge and investigate the implications of contextual factors that give rise to ‘As-Built, In Service’ (ABIS) conditions, as distinct from the ‘As Designed Theoretical’ (ADT) condition of walls. ABIS is defined as the physical state of real exposed walls of residential buildings at any given point in time post-construction, subjected to the environmental conditions found in-situ and to their ageing, and has been a consideration for the assessment of waterproofing treatments during this work, Click here for MORE

Condensation Problems

condensation problems
condensation problems, identified in our free survey.

Dampsolved&co It’s bad out there at the moment, that is for condensation problems, in your homes, especially when it leads to the black mould problems, fungi growing on the damp walls .behind wardrobes even under your beds, to cure the problem we have to look at good ventilation or insulation, usually both, as cold bridging of the external walls often causes the moisture in the atmosphere to condense on to the walls or ceiling, giving a perfect environment for the Black mould to flourish. Stachybotrys is a genus of moulds, hyphomycetes or asexually reproducing, filamentous fungi, now placed in the family Stachybotryaceae. Historically, it was considered closely related to the genus Memnoniella, because the spores are produced in slimy heads rather than in dry chains. The spores are harmful, causing respiratory to young and old. Call now for surveys and estimates at or call 07591501953

Condensation kills.

Condensation gives black mould the chance to thrive, look at the image, deadly for the person sleeping in this bedroom, caused by cold thermal bridging to the structure and condensation.

This can cause severe health problems, especially respiratory, we can cure this problem. if you are suffering from mould just call or fill in the form and we will be in touch.

Dry Rot

I recently attended a property in Hampstead London, to survey a dry rot problem, a terrible thing to find in your home, this being caused by the ingress of water from a new terrace roof, we were glad to give the first survey free, but we made a small charge for a much more in-depth destructive survey, in order to form a plan and estimate for the works. take a look at the images,

the client turned out to be lucky as the dry rot had not reached below the floor, although it had caused substantial damage to the window,.floor and skirtings, they were also lucky to be covered by the insurance policy they had in place, as this is sometimes a problem.
