About this determination


This determination considers the compliance of proposed carpet flooring to a laundry space within an attached garage. The authority refused to issue the building consent for the proposal because of concerns the use of carpet in a laundry does not prevent water from penetrating behind linings, and does not avoid the likelihood of fungal growth or the accumulation of contaminants.
