Summary

Environmental stress caused by water continuously exposes buildings to microbial colonization. This is highly evident when both minor dampness and mass flooding occur. The text describes how microbiological corrosion of buildings and the structures and substances derived from these hazards are responsible for the adverse health effects on people exposed to these contaminated environments. Microbiological Corrosion of Buildings describes the key elements and methods for neutralising and removing microbiological contamination, and the operating algorithm for checking the effectiveness and preventative solutions. Ideal for construction engineers, microbiologists and professionals in the field.

Features:

  • Latest methods for detection of indoor microbial hazards
  • Identifies the tools needed for natural, non-destructive and invasive methods of bio-corrosion removal
  • Describes the social and health problems associated with exposure to microbiological hazards
  • Provides case studies and examples of microorganisms responsible for microbial corrosion
