Online Course - Condensation Damp and Decay

Brand New Online Version


Course overview

Damp in housing association properties can be very costly to put right, as well as being detrimental to the health of occupants. It is often caused by condensation, which itself is avoidable if the right steps are taken. 


Upkeep Training’s online ‘Condensation, Damp and Decay’ one-day course teaches housing staff how to recognise factors that can lead to condensation and how to take and take preemptive steps to stop the situation developing into a serious damp problem.


By taking the course online, you are able to reduce travel time and costs while still having all the benefits of the training. All course documents are emailed to you for download made available to you and numbers remain limited so that we can still allow interaction between and amongst trainers and attendees.  They are also structured for comfort and refreshment breaks.  


Scheduled courses are delivered by Zoom and if your organisation wants a bespoke session, we can use Microsoft Teams if you prefer. 


What the online course covers

  • The likely causes of condensation, damp and mould growth
  • The difference between condensation, water penetration and rising damp
  • The link between heating, ventilation, lifestyle and condensation
  • Strategies to reduce and avoid condensation, damp and mould growth
  • Modern building methods and how they can exacerbate the problem
  • The implications of a landlord’s failure of duty in relation to legislation and the courts
  • Advising residents about reducing condensation
