When assessing internal atmospheric conditions in a property, it is important to understand the prevailing conditions that could lead to persistent high humidity and ultimately mould, should adverse conditions prevail.
Cornerstone’s Humidity Calculator (basic) will provide a clear graphical understanding of the atmospheric moisture conditions in a property compared to the exterior conditions as detailed in BS5250:2002. This will give a strong indication as to the influence the occupants are having on the internal conditions.
As well as providing the graphical interpretation, the app also provides additional calculated data such as the Dew Point Temperature (Temperature at which condensation will form), Specific Humidity (weight of water in the air) and Vapour Pressure (the pressure generated by the absorbed moisture) etc. The supplied data will provide a clear understanding of the atmospheric conditions at the time of surveying. Understanding atmospheric moisture is key in understanding mould activity.
