Mould is often an issue faced in the social housing sector. Poor heating or air movement can allow mould to develop, particularly in void properties over winter. The issue is further exacerbated as we come up to the time of year where the ‘condensation season’ sets in, characterised by steamy windows and dampness on walls.
If a client reports problems with mould in their property, Crown Paints Specification Services can offer a solution to help manage the issue, with the application of Crown Trade Steracryl Mould Inhibiting Paint.
Available in Matt and Eggshell finishes, this durable product contains an effective fungicide, specially developed to maintain decorated surfaces by inhibiting the development of mould growth on the paint film. Debbie Orr, Crown Paints’ Trade Marketing Manager, said: “As the condensation season starts to set in, usually in October and November, properties can be affected by additional water around windows and walls as temperatures start to drop".
Debbie added "This combination of lower temperatures - particularly in areas where the efficiency of glazing, insulation and ventilation needs to be taken into consideration - can lead to water droplets forming on surfaces".
