Motorhome & Caravan Damp Repairs

Damp repairs refer to the process of identifying and rectifying moisture-related issues in a motorhome or caravan. Dampness can be a common problem, particularly in older models or those that have not been adequately maintained. Moisture normally enters a vehicle where there has been a cut in the body such as windows, skylights and doors. If detected early it can normally be repaired cheaply but if left unnoticed and it spreads then it is a much more complex job to put right.

Other common areas where dampness can occur include the walls, floors, ceilings, and storage compartments. It’s important to note that dampness may not always be visible, so using specialised moisture-detection equipment can help identify hidden moisture pockets.

Leak Repairs

If the dampness is caused by leaks in the roof, windows, or other areas, the first step is to identify and fix the source of the leaks. This may involve resealing seams, replacing damaged seals or gaskets, or repairing/replacing damaged components.

Drying and Dehumidification

If dampness is a result of condensation or poor ventilation, the affected areas need to be thoroughly dried. This may involve using dehumidifiers, fans, or heaters to remove excess moisture. Proper ventilation mechanisms, such as vents or extractor fans, may also need to be installed or improved to prevent future condensation issues.

Mould and Mildew Remediation

If mould or mildew has developed as a result of the dampness, it is crucial to address this issue promptly. Mould and mildew can cause health problems and further damage to the motorhome. The affected areas may need to be cleaned, treated with anti-fungal solutions, or in severe cases, removed and replaced.

Structural Repairs

In some cases, prolonged dampness can lead to structural damage in the motorhome. This may include rotting or weakening of wooden or composite materials, such as walls, floors, or cabinets. Any compromised structural components will need to be repaired or replaced to ensure the safety and integrity of the vehicle.

Prevention Measures

To prevent future dampness issues, it’s essential to take preventive measures. This can include regular inspections and maintenance to identify and address potential sources of moisture, such as damaged seals or compromised exterior components. Adequate ventilation systems should be in place to control humidity levels and minimize condensation.

Electrical System Repairs

Electrical System Repairs

Electrical systems in motorhomes and caravans can be complex, and issues such as faulty wiring, blown fuses, or malfunctioning lighting systems can arise. We are skilled in troubleshooting electrical problems and can efficiently repair or replace faulty components to ensure the proper functioning of your vehicle’s electrical system.

Appliance Repairs

Motorhomes and caravans are equipped with various appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioning units, heating systems, and water heaters. If any of these appliances malfunction or require maintenance, we have the expertise to diagnose and repair them. We can also assist with the installation of new appliances to enhance your vehicle’s functionality.

Interior Renovations

Over time, the interior of your motorhome or caravan may require upgrades or renovations. We offer a range of services to enhance and customise the interior space according to your preferences. This includes cabinetry modifications, flooring upgrades, and interior fixture installations. We can help transform your vehicle’s interior into a comfortable and stylish living space.

Internal Valet

Internal motorhome valeting is a comprehensive cleaning and detailing service specifically designed to maintain the cleanliness, hygiene, and overall condition of the interior spaces of a motorhome. Given the compact nature of motorhomes and the range of surfaces and fixtures they contain, internal valeting requires careful attention to detail and a thorough approach to cleaning.

The first step in the cleaning process involves removing loose dirt, dust, and debris from various surfaces. Dry cleaning techniques may include vacuuming carpets, mats, and upholstery, using soft brushes to remove dust from vents, crevices, and hard-to-reach areas, and wiping down surfaces with microfiber cloths to eliminate surface dust.

Once the dry cleaning is complete, a thorough surface cleaning is performed. This involves using appropriate cleaning agents and tools to clean and disinfect surfaces such as countertops, tables, cabinets, and kitchen appliances. Different surfaces may require different cleaning products to ensure effective and safe cleaning without causing any damage.

Motorhome or caravan upholstery, including seats, cushions, curtains, and mattresses, can accumulate dirt, stains, and odours over time. Techniques such as steam cleaning or shampooing to deep clean the upholstery, remove stains, and eliminate odours will be used if necessary.

Motorhome carpets and flooring can be subject to heavy foot traffic and can quickly accumulate dirt and grime. Vacuuming, spot cleaning, and steam cleaning will be employed to clean and refresh carpets. Hardwood or laminate floors may be cleaned using appropriate cleaners and methods to restore their shine and appearance.

Exterior Machine Polish

Exterior machine polishing services for a motorhome involve a comprehensive and professional process to restore and enhance the appearance of the vehicle’s exterior paintwork. This specialised service is designed to eliminate imperfections, such as swirl marks, scratches, oxidation, and dullness, while rejuvenating the overall finish of the motorhome.

The process typically begins with a thorough cleaning of the motorhome’s exterior, including a meticulous wash to remove dirt, grime, and any loose debris.

The machine polishing itself involves using a dual-action or rotary polisher, which is equipped with various pads and abrasive compounds. The polisher’s pad will have the appropriate level of abrasiveness based on the condition of the paintwork. We apply the selected compound to the pad and work it onto the surface in a systematic manner, section by section.

The polishing process utilises the machine’s oscillating or rotating motion to gently and effectively remove a thin layer of the clear coat, levelling out any imperfections and restoring a smooth and glossy finish.

Finally, a high-quality automotive sealant or wax may be applied to protect the newly polished surface and enhance its durability. This protective layer helps to guard against environmental contaminants, UV rays, and fading, while providing a deep and long-lasting shine.

Solar Panel Installation

Solar panel installation is a popular and practical way to harness renewable energy and increase the self-sufficiency of the vehicle. This process involves the careful mounting and wiring of a solar panel or multiple panels on the roof to capture sunlight and convert it into usable electricity. Normally it feeds power to the vehicle’s leisure battery but we can install a splitter to divert electricity to both the leisure and engine batteries.

Refillable Gas Bottles

Refillable Gas Bottles

If you like to holiday in Europe, installing refillable gas bottles is a convenient and efficient way to ensure a steady and reliable gas supply. Rather than hunting around to find somewhere in rural France for example that sells the right size gas bottles you simply pull up at a service station with an LPG pump and pump the gas straight in. It is quick, convenient and saves around 70% on your gas costs.

There are numerous suppliers of refillable gas bottles such as Gaslow, Autogas, Gas It and many more. We will install the bottles and do a gas safety check for you.
