Identifying the moisture source
Figuring out where the water supply is coming from is frequently the easiest part, as it’s far maximum possibly either from rainfall or a plumbing leak. Every now and then although there’s a 3rd way liquid water can appear and be the moisture supply and thus cause of wooden rot, and this is from condensation forming. When heat humid air encounters a hard floor or vapor barrier and its temperature is under the dew point, liquid water will shape. This could be proven via putting a chilly beverage in a can or glass container out of doors on a hot day. The condensation will hold going on until the beverage warms up beyond the dew factor. When you have HVAC ducts or device that isn’t properly insulated, condensation will shape and could preserve forming if that surface is under the dewpoint temperature.
