There have been cases where mold growth occurred in a space due to condensation. Condensation occurs when hot, humid air comes into contact with a cool surface – as such, water vapour turns into liquid phase which is termed condensation. This would give rise to a potential risk of mold growth as a key ingredient – moisture is presented in the environment for them to start growing.
MAEK Consulting has been engaged by commercial units and buildings to conduct investigation of air infiltration and to identify this possible risk to the indoor environment quality. Various non-destructive techniques are utilized to verify presence of air infiltration within the enclosed space.
