The requirement for durability of the buildings and indoor air quality are growing. Therefore the focus in hygrothermal modelling of whole buildings is moving towards a kind of risk analysis. One of the main risks in this sense is the mould growth and following indoor air quality problems, and also decay of the constructions. This paper gives a state-of-art of models predicting mould growth. But what is more important, this paper also discusses the whole problem of modelling such a phenomenon. A sensitivity analysis of modelled mould growth and comparison with measured mould growth are also presented in order to enchange the strength and weakness of approaches to model mould growth in building envelopes.
