Description

The problem of dampness in our homes has not gone away despite changing construction techniques and styles. As older homes have been upgraded and had new
components such as aluminium window frames and sheet lining materials installed and open fireplaces and chimneys removed, they have also become more airtight,
creating higher levels of internal moisture than previously.

These factors can adversely affect not only the building structure, internal finishes, and furnishings and fittings but also the health of building occupants.

Yet internal moisture can be controlled often without huge cost. It requires an understanding of why the moisture occurs, how it affects the indoor environment and
how it can be managed.

This book identifies the causes and provides some solutions to eliminate or effectively manage indoor moisture.
