Damp & Mould in Buildings

Course Overview:

Condensation is a common cause of damp, which damages properties, harms the health of residents and leaves housing associations with a big hole in repairs budgets. It damages the structure and safety of walls, rots wood and furniture (allowing for infestations of mites) and loosens wallpaper, plaster and paintwork. To safeguard against these frequent and widely spread conditions, specialist knowledge and skills are required.

Our course builds on what was taught in the first training programme, helping candidates gain a deeper understanding of condensation and damp.
