Abstract: The detection and evaluation of microbial impacts in the deterioration of building materials as well as their potential health consequences requires a strong interdisciplinary analytical approach. A long-term and practice-related protection of buildings against biodeterioration attacks can only be achieved by the control of environmental parameters favouring microbial infections and growth, by a careful selection of resistant building materials and protectives as well as a minimized application of biocidal additives with respect to ecotoxicological considerations. The upcoming possibilities and potential realization of integrated concepts in the protection of building materials against biodeterioration will be explained.
