SkamoWall Board’s enormous storage capacity compensates for fluctuations in humidity, but does not compensate for ventilation. The volume of moisture can only be returned to the room if the air is replaced. Therefore, it is important to maintain ventilation in the room.
The general rule for good ventilation is that
- It is not good to have the window constantly ajar (the components cool down).
- Airing out with drafts several times a day is best.
- Basement windows should remain closed on hot days. Airing out should only be done in the cool morning and evening hours.
- For good ventilation, it is recommended to air out three times a day for 5 to 10 minutes.
In general, SkamoWall Board must not be permanently saturated from behind and must not be attached to walls with inadequate vertical seals or hygroscopic materials without barriers. If in doubt, ask appraisers or experts.
(Vaulted) basements without natural ventilation may need to be ventilated with mechanical ventilation systems.
