What is Mould?
Mould is a type of fungi that are naturally occurring organisms playing a major role in the earths ecosystem.
Mould grows best in damp and poorly ventilated areas, and reproduces by making spores.
Moulds are present virtually everywhere, indoors and outdoors and can grow in and on materials such as food, furniture, fabrics, carpets, walls, paper, timber and plumbing.

Paint – All you need to know
Everyone knows that prevention is often better than cure, so it’s no wonder that landlords and property managers are often looking to mould proof paint as a way to prevent mould. The good news is that there is a wide range of mould proof paints available which discourage the growth of mould. They will keep the paint free of mould and mildew for some time – usually for the life of the paint. The bad news is that just using these paints alone is not enough. In order for the paint to work, the mould needs to be attacked at its source before painting.
