It's with the right green coatings. Mold is an increasing menace in homes, work places, schools and public buildings. Every year millions of dollars are spent trying to eradicate the problem. It can damage or destroy property, leading to expensive and time-consuming clean up and renovation projects. Indoor spaces that are wet and have organic materials that mold can use as a food source, can and do support mold growth. Mold reproduces through microscopic spores, which readily become airborne, and can produce its own noxious MVOCs (microbial volatile organic compounds). These spores or fragments that become airborne can expose people indoors through inhalation or skin contact and have been shown to have serious negative consequences for respiratory health. Certain fungi and mold are known to be responsible for allergies, hypersensitivity, pneumonitis, infections, mucous membrane irritation, and many others ailments. While the inhalation of mold spores or fragments is not healthy for anyone it most adversely affects babies, children and the elderly. Parents and expectant parents should take aggressive action to eradicate mold and mildew from all their indoor environments especially if there is family history of asthma or allergies. A 2001 report by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings) attributes much of the evident increase in problematic indoor mold to changes in building construction over the past three decades. These changes have resulted in buildings that are tightly sealed for energy efficiency, but potentially lacking adequate ventilation that would allow for quick moisture evaporation. The same report warns that four other key factors may be contributing to the growing mold problem: Mold can grow on most surfaces given the right circumstances especially where moisture is present. One of the ways to help improve your indoor environment after mold is detected is to first kill off the offending mold and mildew using an over the counter product available in almost any convenience store. After the mold has been removed, the surfaces should then be coated with a mold inhibiting green coating containing a biocide that helps prevent mold from growing back in those mold prone areas. There are several qualities that are needed in a coating to combat recurring mold issues and they are that they need to be extremely scrub resistant, durable and sustainable able to withstand repeated washings and overall long term abuse. Choosing the right green coating will also mean that it has no adverse affect on the environment. There should be a minimum amount of VOC's (Volatile Organic Compounds) in the coatings and no ozone depleting substances released as the coatings dry. The coatings should be backed by third party, independent and accredited laboratory testing that shows they have been put through unrelenting and rigorous testing conditions. Lastly, they should have a proven track record showing they can be used over most building surfaces. So remember 'Don't Replace, Just Encase'.
