Moisture MOT

A unique and proactive damp, condensation and mould causation surveying process

The Moisture MOT® solution embraces proven knowledge and understanding of moisture in buildings bringing together such expertise and understanding of fact-based data pertaining to the accurate determination of current structural and atmospheric conditions.

Encompassing an array of survey media both qualitative and quantitative, the process unites external structural conditions with those internally via a sequential and logic driven process. Training and interpretation of moisture mechanics in buildings includes structural building periods, geographical locations and their weather-related behaviour with data capture aligned to Advisories where anomalies are detected.

Recognising each property and its occupancy is different, the survey seeks to gather and interpret an array of statistics resulting in determining the Health of a building with either credible cost-effective solutions or, a Certified Healthy Occupancy.

Cornerstone recognise the majority of reported damp, condensation and mould issues relate significantly to the control of atmospheric moisture in a dwelling.

Property Analysis Model

The Moisture MOT® embraces industry recognised data/parameters to carry out an analysis of the property including Geographical location and UK Mean Temperature data from the Met Office in order to align its UK site to the expected construction behaviour.

A pre-set defined surveying process serves to acquire credible fact based data through all areas of a property with an interactive acknowledgment of existing and potential conditions.

Algorithms within the Moisture MOT® align to recognised British Standards including BS 5250:2002 Code of Practice for control of Condensation in Buildings. Annex B – Moisture generation and ventilation in occupied buildings.

A unique component of the Moisture MOT® is the ability to undertake accredited training with the Property Health Alliance to secure a certified CMOTS qualification enabling interested surveyors to undertake the Moisture MOT® surveys. All data submitted by an accredited surveyor is analysed by the receiving SMART Portal with certificates and applicable advisories issued back to the surveyor for distribution to their clients.
