Knowing how to remove mold from surfaces in your home is very important. The key is to intervene promptly before it spreads and becomes an even bigger problem.
Mold, in fact, can cause surfaces to rot and cause health problems such as allergies, respiratory tract irritation and tiredness.
In this article we will teach you how to use our anti-mold products and give you some small tips to defeat the enemy. An example? When you shower or cook, open the window or turn on the fan. In this way you will avoid condensation humidity which is the most common cause of the formation of mould.
A bit of advice
The most effective way to eliminate mold is to eliminate its causes. So find out where the humidity comes from and improve the ventilation of your rooms.
Then, make sure that the gutters and downspouts are not blocked, that the water drains correctly and that there are no infiltrations.
And inside the house? Avoid drying laundry inside, ventilate rooms often, pay attention to possible plumbing leaks and install extractor fans in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms. An electric dehumidifier may also be useful to reduce the overall humidity level in your home.
Now protect yourself
Before carrying out any intervention, wear a mask, possibly FFP2, to avoid sucking in the microscopic spores, rubber gloves, preferably long, to protect your hands and glasses to prevent the spores from coming into contact with your eyes.
Let's move on to removal
The first thing to do is spray the Mold Remover on the affected surface, leave it to act for a few minutes and remove any residues of mold and blackening with a damp cloth.
Later, when the surface is dry, you can apply the Muffa Control Risanante (with roller or brush) evenly to prevent the phenomenon from reappearing.
The treatment before painting
Before painting the walls of your home, you can intervene with an anti-mold cycle, applying the Muffa Control Risanante directly on the wall.
After 48 hours, you will need to clean and sand the treated surface to remove stains and blackening.
Before proceeding with painting, apply the fixative Fixacryl Antimuffa which consolidates the surfaces and improves anchoring of painting.
Then add the Mold Control Additive to the water-based paint to enhance the preventive action and proceed with painting .
One last effort and you're done
We're almost there. Now reapply the Muffa Control Risanante on the entire surface to prevent the formation of condensation mold. This step is recommended especially in particularly humid environments.
