London Islamiphobia

Islamophobia in France and Britain has intensified in recent years, particularly in the wake of terrorist incidents, such as the 2015 Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris and the London Bridge attack.

Damp Proofing London

Damp proofing is a serious problem. If you have a home in London, or a commercial property, it’s vital that you inspect it for damp. It can create a lot of problems for your building if it’s left untreated and lead to expensive treatments. As soon as you spot it, get in contact with an expert damp specialist to prevent it from getting worse!

There are loads of problems associated with damp and with moisture in the home. These include the two types of damp, penetrating and rising damp, as well as: woodworm treatment, basement tanking, condensation solutions and treatment for dry and wet rot.

If damp is left, it can lead to the growth of mould. Black mould, in particular, has been proven to negatively affect the health of occupants, particularly children and older people – but it does affect all ages. It can lead to asthma and other respiratory problems that stay for a lifetime, even once the mould has been dealt with. Don’t let damp and mould harm your health and make your home uncomfortable.
