Building moisture is caused by the amount of water bound in the construction of the building (mixing water, rainwater).
Moisture leads to various damage and in severe cases to the destruction of components and thus changes the
Properties of the building fabric.
This has a significantly reduced heat protection, a deterioration of Wohnbehaglichkeit and thus additional heat energy losses
Damage to interior and add-on parts as well as furniture due to swelling and shrinkage can be caused by moisture transfer.
The humid environment promotes the population of insects and fungi, mold and thus leads to health problems of the inhabitants.
In order to avoid damage caused by moisture, general measures are required for building waterproofing and climate-related moisture protection
