16.00-16.15 Structural v Environmental. The Footprint of Mould
Damp and mould, and their associated health impacts, is a challenge all landlords face regardless of the age of their housing stock. Aico HomeLINK has developed an industry-leading damp and mould insight, using advanced data analysis to pinpoint the causes of damp and mould. For the first time, landlords can not only determine the level of risk of damp and mould developing for a given property but also whether that risk is related to structural conditions or to the environment that the home is being subjected to.
