Moisture, in liquid or vapour form, is all around us.
Moisture content inside occupied houses in generally higher than the level of moisture in the outside air.
Moisture is generated in the home by the occupier’s metabolism, activities (washing, cooking, bath/shower), by heating and by the weather.
Moisture can also be generated as a result of plumbing leak or other building defects, water entering through gaps or from below ground.
The most common source of Moisture:
Moisture generated in one area will disperse to other parts of the building or to the outside air by air circulation. When warm, moist air comes into contact with a cold surface the water vapour will change to liquid (condensation).
