This review is from: Dampness in Buildings: Diagnosis, Treatment, Instruments (Paperback)
Damp in buildings is a subject that can be difficult to get a clear and conclusive answer on. This small (but comprehensive) book classifies the main causes of "damp" (often condensation) in buildings. The text explains the operation and use of a "damp" meter along with chemical analysis if necessary and other building inspection to locate the source of the "damp" and then suggestions on how to treat it. The approach is, you can't apply the correct remedy if you don't know the cause. At least the book gives the reader (and it is accessible to "lay-men and women") information to challenge those peddling expensive and irrelevant "damp" cures. It also helps you if the building really has damp.
A must buy if your home suffers from damp or condensation to increase the chance that the damp will be correctly treated and improved if not eliminated (there will always be some level of damp in the driest building - the book explains).
