I'm hoping someone can help or at least reassure me!
We bought our house last August and after a week noticed a slug problem in the kitchen, over the winter we also noticed terrible drafts. This spring we decided to enlist a builder who has been absolutley brilliant, he correctly diagnosed that the floor joists had rotted meaning there were large gaps by the walls. However once we had the enitre kitchen taken out the floor ripped up we also found that both the outside drain and the soil pipe were leaking under the ground and through the walls, so the soil under the kitchen floor was wet.
3 months of rangling with the insurers (they didn't pay out) and we had a new drain fitted, new soil pipe, floor joists and kitchen. However I have just started seeing slug trails reappearing in the kitchen, I love the house but the thought that this is still going on fills me with dread. The house was built in 1927, the air bricks are below ground level outside (but there isn't one near the kitchen). I am wondering if I can try and remove one of the kickboards under the cupboards to see if there is anything untoward going on but I can't seem to access it. Looking online there seems to be a lot of people with a slug problem that don't seem to be panicking as much as me!?
Any advice would be great
