On average, 250ml of water can evaporate from 1m² of ground in 24 hours. Moisture can therefore be a large source of dampness in a home. This dampness underfloor can cause mould and mildew inside the house, affecting the health of the occupants and can be destructive to the quality of a house.
Rental properties must have efficient drainage for the removal of storm water, surface water and ground water. Rental properties with an enclosed sub-floor (underfloor) space must also have a ground moisture barrier installed if it is reasonably practicable to do so.
At Elite Insulation, we have extensive experience installing ground moisture barriers in all types of homes. We use the highest quality moisture barrier materials, and our workmanship is second to none. This includes projects where access to the underfloor area is challenging – we’ll find a solution.
