MOULD


DAMP, MISCOLOURING AND BAD SMELLS

Mould is a fungus that grows on different materials in damp
environments –especially on food, wood and other organic substances. It spreads through the air as either asexual or sexual spores and multiplies fast.

Habits with poor ventilation or faulty damp protection are often affected. Mould does not break down wood and the fungus grows on top of the surface. It causes discolouring and gives rise to bad smell.

Too much mould spores in the air can make people sick.

Mould problems are most common indoors. Accommodation with inferior ventilation or poor damp protection is often affected. If the damp remains, the risks of growth, affections and destruction of construction materials is very high –for example beams and attics.

In bathrooms moisture is constantly supplied, which gives the mould spores the nutrition they need. Wet rooms that are not correct damp proofed –or has other professional defects- will become water damage sooner or later. By then, the mould is establishes –both in and on top of the surface and in between different materials. The mould expands and grows fast.

Outdoors you need to be attentive to places around the building where damp can penetrate and accumulate. Examples are splices between main buildings and extensions, between walls and roofs, around wind- and
gable boards and in damaged or faulty placed roof and surface materials.

This often causes mould damages in beams, on garrets and on constructions when the damp has crept into the building.

Professional draining is another example. Faulty draining often affects basements and crawler soils. Then damp might exist in walls and perhaps in the floors. Equally important is facing ventilation and properly performed insulation.

When damp accumulates over time it will spread thought out the building. Good conditions for extensive mould damages have therefore been created.


SANITIZING MOULD

It is not enough to clean or to mechanical remove the affective growth and assail –the surfaces must be sanitized.

Afterwards the material easily can be maintained and treated –without risk of new affective growth. Without risks for damages, maintenance and costs. Without problems. Without affective growth.

Bensaltenside sterilizes all affective growth and disinfects all surfaces –they become totally sterile. Both on the surface and in the pores. The treatment reaches full effect in 24 hours –then all assails are killed off. Thereafter the surface is guaranteed to be protected for a minimum of 4 years.

Repeated treatments –or by mix Bensaltensid in to paint or mortar- lengthens the protection time with several years.
Outdoors rain gradually removes Bensaltenside – on roofs it takes about one year and on walls two. You can even clean, brush or rinse off the remains.
