Problem with mould.. Anti Mould Paint?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

This time of year my flat is vunerable to mould as i cant leave the doors/windows open and im having trouble keeping on top of it.

 

Im having to use mould and mildrew spray on the walls and skirting board at least once a week but using it on the walls is taking the paint off the walls.

 

Is there anything i can put the walls or skirting board to prevent the mould forming that i could paint over the top?

 

Also im getting mould on gloss, is there anything i can use for that?

 

Any help or advice would be appreciated

 

Kind regards Mark

Hi Mark

 

As you say, a real problem this time of year. The fact is, that if as bad as you say, you have to deal with the cause. things like drying washing indoors, cooking with no extractor fan, etc. can put so much moisture in the air that one quick shower, and there's mould everywhere. Have you any extract fans ? what insulation do you have ? Is the heating sufficient ?

Yes there are anti fungal paints, and paint additives, but, in a case as bad as this, there's very little chance of any improvement. It's down to the cause, I'm afraid.
