About This Item

 

Full Description

Indoors, buildings should always be dry. When building interiors get damp and stay damp, problems often emerge for their occupants and for the building's structure, material, and furnishings. Persistent indoor dampness has been associated with human health problems, increased risk to building's structural fasteners and exterior enclosure, shortened useful life of furnishings, and reduced acceptability to occupants because of odors andstains. These and related problems can be costly and disruptive, as well as annoying to all concerned.
