Our damp control in buildings seminar is designed as a refresher course on the different identifiable traits of damp in properties, as well as covering the use of moisture profiling to aid diagnostics.
The seminar will focus on the different varieties of damp that can occur (lateral ingress/rainwater penetration, condensation, damp from higher ground, bridged plasterwork and rising damp) and the treatment methods available to correct these issues.
Our basement waterproofing seminar reviews the three types of waterproofing protection available (barrier protection, structurally integral protection and drained protection) and the different grades of dryness in below-ground space.
Talking points include; BS8102 revisions, the differences between the three grades of protection, the use of cementitious render and cavity drainage membrane, and changes made by the NHBC Chapter 5.4.
Our seminar takes an in-depth look at the formation of condensation and black mould within residential and commercial properties. This includes how the combination of air humidity, the variation of air temperature and cool surfaces, can have an impact on a property.
We also demonstrate best practice examples on combating mould and condensation from DIY solutions to mechanical measures such as positive input ventilation (PIV) units and filterless fans.
The first half of our timber seminar will focus on the six most common species of wood-boring beetles in the UK. It will look at the individual characteristics of each species, the woodworm lifecycle, the importance of accurate diagnostics as well as the latest treatment solutions and survey techniques used within the industry.
The other half of the seminar covers the different identification techniques used for wood-rotting fungi, focusing on wet rot and dry rot. The main talking points include the pre-condition environment needed for wood rotting fungi, the life-cycle, the latest treatment of fungal decay with fungicides and new survey methods, including the use of dry rot sniffer dogs to detect the early signs of dry rot.
The seminar concludes with the variety of treatment options using resin and structural repairs techniques available for the repair of affected timber.
