Dear residents of Vienna,
Mould growth indoors can be a problem especially in the cold season and can cause severe health problems for the people living in the household.
The innovative questionnaire on the following pages, developed by the experts of Municipal Department 39 (Research Centre, Laboratory and Certification Services), can help you assess your personal risk based on your living habits and the characteristics of your home.
Use it to change your home environment and your heating and airing habits so as to prevent mould growth. You will receive helpful information on reducing the risk of mould tailored to your personal circumstances. This free service provided by the City of Vienna is the only one of its kind worldwide.
I would like to invite you to take the questionnaire before the start of the next heating period. It will only take you a few minutes but can improve your indoor climate noticeably for the whole winter.
Municipal Department 39 also offers a service for identifying the causes of mould in your home (Research Centre, Laboratory and Certification Services).
The City of Vienna cares about your health and wellbeing.
Dr. Michael Ludwig
Executive City Councillor for Housing
