Crown Trade - Steracryl Mould Inhibiting Paint
Now is the time of year when condensation can take its toll on properties across theUK.
As temperatures drop outside, a combination of poor insulation, ineffective glazing, inadequate ventilation and temperature differentials between rooms can all conspire to create ideal conditions for condensation to form around windows, and on ceilings and wall surfaces.
Condensation is caused as moisture in the air – typically caused by cooking, washing and drying laundry – hits cool surfaces.
Left unchecked these moist surfaces present an ideal breeding ground for mould spores. Not just unsightly, mould growth is widely reported to exacerbate respiratory diseases and can ultimately cause interior woodwork, plasterwork and furnishings to rot.
The paints are particularly effective in the social housing sector, where they can be used to prevent the spread of mould growth in ‘voids’ which can be left unaired for long periods of time. They are also ideal for use in any type of residential or commercial property where there are high levels of relative humidity and other conditions likely to support mould growth.
Debbie Orr, Crown Trade Senior Brand Manager, said: “Both paints contain an effective fungicide, specially developed to maintain decorated surfaces by inhibiting the development of mould growth on the paint film.
“They have also undergone stringent fungal tests carried out to British Standard BS3900:G6
“Furthermore, the acrylic eggshell system is washable, making it ideal for use in kitchens and bathrooms where condensation can be particularly problematic.”
