Dew point is the when moisture in the air condensates and turns into water, it is the point of change from gas into liquid. It occurs when the temperature in one room is different from the temperature in another room, or outside temperature. When the temperature in the warm room meets a cold surface, the vapour in the air is released from the air and forms water droplets.
Moulds are fungus and release millions of tiny spores into the air. They need moisture to grow and can be found in cold damp surfaces in poorly ventilated areas in buildings. Moulds come in various colours such as black, green or grey. They include all species of microscopic fungi that grow in the form of multi-cellular filaments called hyphae. A connected network of these tubular branching hyphae has multiple, genetically identical nuclei and is considered a single organism, referred to as a colony or a mycelium.
Types of Damp
There are various types of damp problems. These range from Rising damp, Penetrating damp, Lateral Penetrating damp, and Localised damp.
The ZRT ³ (Zoom Rate Thermal Transfer Technology) NozzleNub is a device that cures the problem of water penetration in buildings. This device is a new innovation that has been designed to tackle Damp problems in buildings. It is small ceramic insert used for removing unwanted moisture from existing and new buildings. The ZRT3 attracts water in the walls to it, and then expels the water out of the building and into the atmosphere as moisture. Normally about 250/300 ADNN for most existing and new buildings.
