Dealing with on-site damp? Follow the effective drying triangle methodology to achieve a safe drying programme with no project delays.
Wet, cold weather often means delays due to buildings not being warm or dry enough for works to progress – e.g. carpentry, decorating, screeding and tiling. The ambient air on site can reach a very high level of relative humidity, particularly during the autumn, winter and spring months. Before the building is water tight and the central heating/underfloor system is installed, a temporary drying-out programme is often required.
The three components of an effective drying programme are; air movement, dehumidification and warmth. We call this 'The Effective Drying Triangle'. This methodology ensures that the building dries out gradually and evenly, and prevents costly damage, such as timber warping, plaster cracking and structural movement.
