When the humidity begins to appear in a house we tend to think that all is lost. We will have to live with it for the rest of our days and we will have to start renovations with all that it entails dust, disorder, stress etc… without even being sure that this will solve the problem.
The first thing according to Marva Moraira Construction and Sales to solve this problem is to determine which type of humidity we are facing. There are in fact, 4 different types of humidity:
-The capillary humidity: it appears in the lower zones of the house and occurs when some water of the foundations is absorbed.
-The humidity by condensation: it appears on the walls and the roofs. It can be black, green or whitish.
-The humidity by infiltration: it can occur on the walls as well as outdoor and it leaves puddles and yellow stains. It can even cause collapses of walls or roofs.
– The humidity due to renovations: if some materials don’t have enough time to dry, it may result in future problems. It is important to leave enough time for each material to dry properly before resuming the work
