DAMP, BUBBLING & PAINT FLAKE
Usually any of the mentioned above is caused by water coming through the wall, the water pushes off the plaster and paint causing it to bubble and flake off. The Real problem sometimes lies with the construction underneath and would require a builder to seal off the outside or fix any internal broken pipes before cleaning up and repairing any damage on the surface.
The other reason paint might be flaking is badly prepared walls before the paint was applied, or a cheap quality paint that simply dos not last and bind strong enough to the older paint underneath.
For more info don’t hesitate to drop a message, we can always come and see to assess the damage.
Moving cracks can be repaired with a flexible filler that can deal with a certain amount of movement, usually 20%. Settled cracks can be filled over easily.
Causes; there are many reasons why cracks occur but mainly its because of movement, large cracks should be looked at by a professional builder. For more info don’t hesitate to drop a message we can recommend trusted craftsmen to take care of all your needs.
FUNGUS, MOLD & MILDEW
Any type of mould should be dealt with as soon as possible, the longer you leave it the worse it becomes. Mould or fungus sends out microscopic spores that can damage other walls with fungus growth but worse still it will cause health problems from prolonged exposure. A quick and short term solution to deal with mould or fungus is to wash it off with warm water and added bleach to help kill the micro-organisms, for a long term solution contact us.
Causes, mould is usually caused by damp conditions (no ventilation, leak) that’s why it’s often found in houses that are empty much time of the year and never have the windows open. For more info don’t hesitate to drop a message
Alex recently painted the inside of my home. I was impressed by the colours he recommended for me and how professional he was. The job was done perfectly with no paint splashes anywhere and every day he cleaned up after himself. I would definitely use PaintWorks Marbella again.
