The influence of the environment on objects of historical value

Irena Ickiewicz , Piotr Koda


The result of the environment's influence on objects of historical value is the ongoing process of their deterioration. The main cause for the deterioration process is the flow of heat and moisture which also brings salinary solutions. The correct diagnosis on the causes of adverse effects affecting buildings of historical value serves as the basis for further activity which can result in protecting an object of value against further deterioration. Dampness issues which occur in buildings are usually caused by the lack of proper anti-dampness insulation and an incorrect micro-climate inside (temperature and air humidity outside). In order to evaluate the influence of a microclimate on dampness processes, the selected buildings of historical value had air temperature and relative air humidity monitors installed, each having the capacity for continuous data retrieval. Every month, examinations of wall dampness are being carried out using a PWM-3 hygrometer. Based on the measurements from the first two months, initial conclusions were drawn. Deeper analyses and the conclusions stemming from these will be drawn after the entire cycle of measurement ends at the end of 2018 (after one, full year of measurements).
