In an exclusive interview with Eleven Media, Sydney based Balanced Building Biology confirmed that the monitoring indoor air quality was crucial for the protecting homes and businesses from mould.
Balanced Building Biology are specialists in mould inspection and testing. They confirm that by controlling this, building owners help reduce the risks of mould growth and other biological pollutants and contaminants.
Water can be in the form of humidity, more specifically, “relative humidity” which is humidity relative to temperature. There is an optimum relative humidity (RH) level of 40% to 60% Keeping within this optimal zone is critical.
It’s the amount of water in the air. Controlling this will help reduce the risks of mould growth and other biological pollutants and contaminants. There is an optimum relative humidity (RH) level of 40% to 60%. Keeping within this optimal zone is critical for controlling mould.
Relative Humidity will always equalise or balance out, so if windows and exterior doors are opened, it will equalise with the outdoors. When going to sleep, the relative humidity in a bedroom will increase as occupants release water vapours from breathing, and in an enclosed room, it will increase the relative humidity.
Mr Senri Oiso, Founder of Balanced Building Biology said this when interviewed by Eleven Media, “There are different strategies that can be taken to manage relative humidity, but first things first, measure and monitor. We recommend the purchase of a hygrometer or an indoor air quality sensor to monitor 24?7. Measuring the relative humidity in living and sleeping areas will give an idea of what the levels are during different times of the day or night. If above 60%, home and building owners need to take immediate action to reduce it as soon as possible.”
