When beginning in the sub-floor room, it is important that it has effective cross ventilation, which helps to minimize the degree of moisture and also decreases the relative humidity in the sub-floor area; damp proof membrane helps to minimize the moisture escaping from the earth and soil and also reduces the amount of moisture emitted into the sub-floor space; if we do not have a damp proof membrane, it is a easy matter. When such signs are present, we ought to be more vigilant when doing our inspection over the property stages. The sub-floor is also referred to as a building’s engine room and may contribute up to 50 percent of the air we breathe inside a property: going through the home, once again particular attention should be paid to windows and balconies along with poor roof junctions and duct locations, as it has been estimated that up to 30 percent of the water intake would be in these areas if we have them.
