Default Humidity

Hi
Just returned from our place in Moraira, took out dehudmidifier, looking for advise regarding acceptable percentage level so that no damage is caused to internal doors etc due to humidity.
Thanks

I have never heard of damage to doors caused through humidity - if you allow some air flow around the property it should not be a problem.

Are you sure that there is not a leak somewhere ?

Default Re: Humidity

Just curious as to what sort of finish or treatment the doors have, as that one looks at first sight almost like untreated or unprotected timber?

All doors have been treated, looks to me that moisture has got into the door where the lock is fitted, is this possible? if so what humidity percentage level should the property be kept at. Can we claim agtainst the carpenter as the doors are not fit for purpose.

Default Re: Humidity

It's a strange one.
If the timber had been properly treated I wouldn't have expected the sort of humidity levels you would get inside a house to have that effect.
I wonder if the doors are factory made or did the carpenter make them?
Are you sure that what you are looking at is water moisture?
If so you would probably expect to see at least a little distortion in the surface of the boarding as the moisture would likely swell the timber.

Default Re: Humidity

I believe that the carpenter made them in his factory, this would have been approx 3 years ago. The worry is how much worse they will get and how to overcome the problem if they refuse to accept liability.

Looks more like over oiling of the locks, hence only showing around them.
Maybe too much grease and the recent high temps have melted it ?

Crossed my mind too,though it does seem to stretch up and down the seams at the edge also.
If not grease,maybe some sort of sealer thats melted and gradually seeped through or protective oil for the seams thats done likewise?
