As any other problem, even humidity requires a correct (and preferably timely) diagnosis to be properly treated.
The methods to diagnose any humidity damage are various but the real advantage is to identify emerging problem, remedying it quickly and less invasively.
Entrusted to specialized professionals
Moisture is a very complex and varied phenomenon and it is not easy to find specialized professionals. The first step to avoid relying on "improvised humidity experts" is to get informed; fortunately today internet and other tools allow us to easily select referenced companies and professionals, based on years of activity and much more.
Probably, if you are looking for a professional to diagnose, the problem is already evident and prevention interventions are not for you!
DIY diagnosis: useful but not enough!
A general diagnosis may easily and independently be performed, based on some specific factors of each type of humidity. It is sufficient to do Google searches on humidity visual effects, to learn that peeling in the lower area of the walls is caused by rising damp (but not always
) and that stains and molds in the upper parts of the walls are the effect of an high levels of environmental humidity (but not always
) and so on (in this regard we advice you this few steps self-diagnosis test
to get an idea of the humidity problem which afflicts your home).
Before intervening, and therefore spending money, it is always good to rely on a technician to identify the origin of the problem and find the optimal solution.
Technicians who carry out this type of investigation nowadays have available very latest tools to identify the problem with minimal errors. The most powerful and technologically advanced instrument for humidity monitoring is thermography
Although a thermographic survey
may have significant costs (if carried out by certified and specialized technicians) there are very high possibilities of identifying the problem and, subsequently, of being directed towards the most suitable solution.
