What does the Condensation and Mould Diagnostic System do?

The system is a novel diagnostic method integrated into a computer program (or software) that processes and assesses environmental data and reports the factors causing moisture imbalance leading to the risk of condensation and mould in properties. This program, together with a unique protocol to install a number of data loggers/sensors which gather the data, completes the Condensation and Mould Diagnostic System.

How the technology helps you…

Recording and evaluating moisture issues with our system will help housing associations, landlords, householders, and tenants to easily understand and objectively quantify the severity of moisture imbalance and the causal factors leading to condensation and mould in properties.

This Condensation and Mould Diagnostic System will complement your building survey and will help to reduce disrepair claims. Our system also gives access to guides for the most effective repair solutions for condensation and mould, it will save you time and money avoiding the hassle of data processing, giving an objective interpretation, and reporting results whilst empowering you to improve living conditions and customer satisfaction.

The end result is a highly technical atmospheric and surface moisture evaluation report, put right into the hands of all surveyors inferring the indoor air living conditions of the occupants and the surface thermal characteristics of the problematic areas within buildings.

What the system gives you?

Using data loggers/sensors which measure the internal and external environmental conditions, temperature and relative humidity, the Condensation and Mould Diagnostic System will tell the user why the excess moisture issue has become a problem within a building/home that is understandable for all.

The system creates diagnostic reports by processing the environmental data gathered by the loggers. This technical report consists of several sections which include a description of the Condensation and Mould Diagnostic System method, photos and plans together with details and comments about the property (provided by the surveyor). A summary of results on the moisture diagnostic assessment includes the Condensation and Mould System scores indicating the severity of moisture imbalance and the causal factors leading to condensation and mould.
