Program Overview:

This session will explain the relationship between moisture and IAQ.

Controlling humidity in the air is essential to controlling surface condensation and microbiological growth.  The attendees should leave with a basic understanding of the scientific relationship of the amount of water in the air and microbiology.  They also will understand why relative humidity does not tell the whole story and why decisions made on the basis of relative humidity may not be effective in providing good IAQ.
