Mold Prevention During New Construction Best Option
No homeowner wants the nightmare of dealing with mold growth. Invest upfront in mold prevention during new construction, so you can rest easy. As a licensed mold prevention expert, we apply a microbial barrier on your new home’s studs, trusses, floor joists and other building materials. This eliminates potential health problems and saves you from spending lots of money doing costly mold remediation repairs in the future.
Mold Prevention During New Construction Worth Investment
Typically, home builders do three things to prevent mold from occurring in your new home. They refer to it as dry in or drying-in the building. This entails putting on the roof, exterior siding, windows, doors and closing up other gaps and sealing them up tight. This helps prevent water or moisture from getting inside the house.
After drying-in, builders let any vulnerable building materials, such as wood, have plenty of time to dry out. Even then, a properly dried-in building can have mold growth. It’s very difficult to avoid all water or moisture during the building process.
Other reasons exist, too, such as closed in buildings get sealed up tighter these days preventing building materials from drying out thoroughly. Building material often gets shipped to project sites, and sit outside in the elements for an extended period of time. This can expose the lumber to all the elements of rain and humidity. Additionally, many builders today are using younger timber products which are more susceptible to damage by moisture.
Homeowners can eliminate the possibility of mold growth, though, by taking one more step during the building process. They can simply employ certified mold prevention specialists, like the ones at Escarosa Cleaning and Restoration, to spray on a microbial barrier before hanging drywall or installing ceilings. Turning to mold prevention experts is recommended to be done up front, instead of as a last-ditch effort. This becomes even more vital on the Florida Gulf Coast where the humid climate becomes a perfect breeding ground for mold.
What is a Microbial Barrier?
Our certified mold Technicians at Escarosa Cleaning and Restoration also hold certifications as Anabec (DC90) Applicators. This allows us to use the special cleaning agents developed by Anabec Systems in Buffalo, N.Y. The anti-mold solution contains nano-technology that helps it penetrate and protect new building materials. Additionally, the cleaner resists and repels water and bonds to surfaces.
The Anabec mold prevention process usually takes two days to finish. The first day, we take moisture readings to ensure the product can be applied. We also spot clean any areas where mold appears. The second day, we spray on the Anabec agent that kills the mold and resists it for years.
In fact, this proven product comes with a 50-year warranty that homeowners can transfer if they sell their new home. We also offer a 30-year warranty on any existing structures. This guarantees your property will be mold-free for many years to come.
Research Study Validates Mold Cleaning Agent
In 2005, an Arizona State University study did a series of experiments to test Anabec Systems’ NewBuild 30 agent. It found E. coli, Bacillus subtilis and Salmonella typhimurium on both pinewood and drywall were wiped out after a 24-hour incubation period of using this product.
It also tested Penicillium and Stachybotrys spores on pinewood and drywall. The ASU study found after 75 days of incubation at various temperatures, less than 0.1 percent of the spores remained viable.
