Abstract

In this presentation we will cover recent experiences of mould and condensation in new houses in Tasmania. There are important lessons to learn around the measurement and analysis of temperature and humidity profiles and how these are conducive to the growth of mould. Some design and construction methods are prone to condensation and am important lesson for us is that some houses cannot be remediated for mould until they are renovated to manage vapour.
