Perform water protection of kitchen & safe water installation
This course is primarily aimed at those who install white goods and install kitchens or other water installations in kitchens. You get through theory, knowledge regarding current regulations and current product range. Practical exercises give you knowledge and skills in the correct approach.
Overall goal of the course: To be able to achieve waterproof installations in a professional and professional way. To have knowledge of product range and area of use. To become a certified waterproof kitchen installer.
Did you know that you as a trader (craftsman) are responsible for damage that occurs during incorrect installation and water installation? Waterproof kitchen is a concept developed to minimize the risks of moisture, mold and water damage, which sneak leakage after a water installation can cause in a kitchen. By combining a sink insert and white goods underlay, you can collect and lead leakage water, so that even very small amounts of water are detected in time. The products sink insert, seals and white goods coasters can be installed yourself or with the help of professionals both in connection with new installation and in already installed kitchens.
By installing the waterproofing layers according to the instructions, the home and villa insurance’s due diligence requirements and the National Board of Housing, Building and Planning’s mandatory building rule are met (BBR 6: 5334): “If there is a risk of leaking water or condensation on hidden surfaces, outlets from these surfaces must be arranged so that the water becomes visible quickly.”
Water damage begins in the same way
Virtually all damage begins in the same way with a few drops of water, which are not detected in time. Sometimes the leakage develops very quickly and the water flows or sprays out in such large quantities that all water supply must be shut off and help called.
The most difficult water remediation occurs when the dripping continues for a long time without being detected. The sneak leakage also takes place when you are at home and think you have supervision and control over what is happening. The leakage water is absorbed by furnishings and building materials and is only visible when the construction is saturated or an unpleasant odor occurs.
Moisture and mold cause health problems
A prolonged course of damage can cause health problems such as asthma, allergies, various types of respiratory problems and insomnia.
WHO has established the link between moisture and mold in the indoor environment with common symptoms such as:
Mucosal and respiratory symptoms – Feeling of irritation or dryness in eyes, nose and throat, nasal congestion, runny nose, hoarseness, cough, recurrent respiratory infections, onset or worsening of asthma.
Skin symptoms – Feeling of heat or redness on the face and neck, dry, irritated skin, itching, rash, worsening of seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, urticaria or eczema.
General symptoms – Fatigue, difficulty concentrating, headache, general malaise, odor hypersensitivity. There is a lack of good evidence for a connection between moisture / mold indoors and general symptoms. However, according to clinical experience, general symptoms may occur secondary to respiratory symptoms, especially rhinitis with nasal congestion.
Other problems – For example, experience of unpleasant odor, such as mold, soil or basement.
The construction product assessment has very thoroughly examined and environmentally assessed the products. All have been accepted and meet the requirements for use in sustainable and environmentally friendly construction
