Will ASTM E 3026-15 Mop Up Moisture Risks?
Is there finally a baseline standard for evaluating the sticky issue of elevated moisture? ASTM’s new E 3026-15 Standard Guide for Readily Observable Moisture Affected Materials and Conditions Conducive to Elevated Moisture in Commercial Buildings: Visual Moisture Assessment Process – will target the causes of existing and potential moisture problems, which are often excluded from routine due diligence and property management assessments.
