Description

Protection of the external partitions of historic buildings is a broad topic due to the limited possibilities of interfering with the structure. Restoration restrictions on prevention in the mycological protection of historic buildings are so large that, from the broad list of possible protective measures, practically only the heating of the nodes and the control of air parameters are practically safe. The reason for restrictions is the lack of possibility of introducing architectural changes and the limited possibility of interfering into the structure of external partitions. A fast method that uses fluorescence was used for quantitative assessment of the mycelium development during the research and design work preceding the revalorization of the baroque seat of Polish kings in Wilanów (Warsaw). Mould mycelium were found mainly in the areas of increased humidity of the substrates. The use of an innovative method of local reheating of thermal bridge areas has been proposed there. Systems for reheating with halogen radiators using various infrared radiation (IR) bands were analyzed. There was also designed an anticondensation system consisting on electric heating cables. The proposed solutions prevent the development of mould mycelium to a satisfactory degree. Finally, the interior of the palace regained its beautiful appearance and healthy microclimate.

Thermal and mycological active protection of historic buildings on the example of the baroque residence of Polish kings in Wilanów

Protection of the external partitions of historic buildings is a broad topic due to the limited possibilities of interfering with the structure.
