Abstract

Growth of mould requires the presence of moisture at a certain high level. In a heated indoor environment such moisture levels occur only if there is a reason for the moisture supply. Such moisture can come from the use of the building, because of malfunctioning constructions, or it can be the result of insufficient ventilation. The article will give an overview of these reasons, and thereby also give hints to how problems can be avoided.
