- Understanding Moisture Problems: Moisture problems inside buildings can manifest in various ways, such as dampness, mould growth, peeling paint, or even structural damage. Some common causes of moisture issues include:
- High Humidity: Kerala’s tropical climate can lead to excessive indoor humidity, resulting in condensation and mould growth.
- Leakage and Seepage: Rainwater or plumbing leaks can infiltrate walls and ceilings, causing water damage.

To diagnose or prevent a moisture problem, Remember these five key elements of moisture behaviour.
1. Typical symptoms of moisture problems.
They include corrosion of metals, the growth of surface mould or wood-decaying moulds, insect infestations, palling exterior brick or concrete, peeling paint, falling floor adhesives, stained finishes and health symptoms.
2. Sources of moisture.
Among them are rainwater, surface water, groundwater, plumbing water, indoor and outdoor sources of humidity and sewer water.
3. Transport mechanisms.
They include liquid water leaking through holes, wicking through porous materials, or running along the top or bottom of building assemblies and water vapour carried by warm, humid air leaking through assemblies and by diffusion through vapour-permeable materials.
4. Common failures of moisture control elements and systems.
Moisture controls include site drainage, gutter systems, above- and below-grade drainage planes, condensate drainage and humidity controls. Failures can occur during any phase of a building’s life and may include poor site selection or design, and poor material or equipment selection.
5. Improper installation or sequence of building materials and equipment.
Insufficient coordination between trades during construction and insufficient or improper maintenance of materials or equipment.
