Traduction en anglais : Hydrophobizing of façades resulting in indoor aerosol pollution and offensive odor nuisance.
Water repellent and façade protective solvent containing agents applied to external façades (hydrophobizing) may in some cases cause considerable and long-term indoor aerosol pollution with aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons.
This may result in odor nuisance and other complaints that may even make the affected rooms uninhabitable.
To date the entire phenomenon has not been subjected to conclusive scientific research although its existence has long been known.
Administrative offices react inconsistently to complaints; in many cases their actions are unsystematic and they try to minimize the issue.
Measurement data and results of investigations from 10 practical cases are juxtaposed to find causal links and to assess the relevance of the entire problem of hydrophobizing of façades.
