Condensation, damp and mould – causes, cures and the courts

This revised and updated condensation, damp and mould workshop builds on the enthusiastically received format previously delivered both in-house and at public training events across the length and breadth of the UK.

Revisiting existing understanding, dispelling myths and questioning existing generic, outdated and inappropriate advice often given to interested parties in the light of recent improvements to housing stock, the course provides delegates with an effective understanding of the causes, symptoms and cures associated with condensation, damp and mould in the light of impacting legislation, etc.

What will you learn?

  • An understanding of the causes, symptoms and cures associated with condensation, damp and mould
  • Requisite impacting legislation and the implications of failure
  • Rising damp – truth or myth?
  • The diverse range of detection tools available such as moisture, carbide and capacitance meters, borescopes, hygrometer sticks and humidity boxes, etc
  • Strategies for the effective removal/reduction of damp and mould problems
  • How to communicate sound knowledge-based principles to affected parties
  • How to protect parties’ interests and implement effective procedural guidance to combat failure.

The training is lively, practical and interactive and, most importantly, in tune with the increasing demands being placed on housing organisations and their technical and housing officers in meeting the challenges presented by this resource-draining aspect of their work.

  • Housing officers
  • Maintenance and technical officers
