PRLog - Aug. 29, 2012 - The Property Care Association’s Condensation and Dampness in Buildings Workshop provides information and guidance for professionals in sectors including building preservation, surveying and social housing.

The one day course from the PCA will help candidates understand commonly encountered problems associated with dampness in buildings. These include how to recognise and evaluate condensation and mould growth, as well as looking at penetrating and rising damp.  

Students will then be given instruction on the likely causes of these defects, and how they might be overcome.

The course also looks at methods that are commonly used to aid inspection and diagnosis of damp defects.

The use and limitations of conductivity meters, speedy testing, and gravimetric moisture analysis are all considered too, as well as the conduction of atmospheric moisture evaluations using surface thermometers, hygrometers and, when necessary, remote data logging equipment.

A popular feature of the course is the practical session where candidates learn how raw data, collected from site, can be used to help evaluate condensation problems and understand the relationships between energy input, moisture production, ventilation and insulation.  

Consideration is also given to the much-publicised issue of mould growth in properties, with an emphasis on biology and the latest thinking on the emotive issue of its perceived health effects.

The course takes place at the PCA’s training centre in Huntingdon on 25 September 2012 and places are limited.
