Optrekkend vocht is een vaak voorkomend fenomeen in gebouwen. Vooral oude gebouwen die geen waterkerende laag (zoals bijvoorbeeld een trasraam) hebben, lijden aan dit probleem. De relevantie van optrekkend vocht blijkt ook uit het grote aanbod van producten voor het bestrijden van dit probleem. Het grote, gevarieerde aanbod en de beperkte...
