Removal, prevention and protection: practical guide against mold on external surfaces

Rimozione, prevenzione e protezione: guida pratica contro la muffa su superfici esterne

The winter season brings with it a series of challenges for our homes: external facades, coverings and floors can show blackening and aesthetic defects caused by mould, moss and lichens.

Adverse meteorological events, excessive humidity and exposure of surfaces to the north are an ideal mix for the proliferation of mold on porous natural stones, plaster, terracotta bricks and concrete.

In this practical guide, we will discover how to effectively carry out the anti-mold cycle after the winter season, to restore and renew external surfaces, focusing on removal, restoration and protection .


Before treatment

Step 1: Mold Removal

The first action to take is to remove any mold already present. For this reason, the Mold Remover product proves to be the perfect solution. Follow these simple instructions:

  1. Be sure to protect sensitive objects and surfaces such as metals, outdoor furniture and plants.
  2. Wear the supplied gloves and suitable protective clothing.
  3. Spray the Mold Remover directly on the affected surface.
  4. Let the product act for 15 minutes.
  5. Using a damp cloth or sponge, rub the treated area to remove the mold.

Step 2: Remediation of the support and prevention of the reappearance of mold

Once the mold has been removed, it is essential to take preventative measures to prevent the problem from recurring. To this end, the Mold Control Risanante product is formulated to prevent the growth of mold on various surfaces. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Make sure the surface to be treated is clean and dry.
  2. Apply the Muffa Control Risanante evenly on the affected surface, with a brush, roller or with a low-pressure nebulizer.
  3. Let the product dry without rinsing.

Step 3: Protection of surfaces with Hydro Pro ECO

In addition to the direct prevention of mould, it is important to protect surfaces from the action of atmospheric agents. The use of the water-repellent treatment Hydro Pro ECO creates an invisible and long-lasting protective barrier, which protects the materials from water, humidity and frost. Follow these directions:

  1. Make sure that the surface to be protected is perfectly clean and dry (for thorough cleaning we recommend ALCADET strong detergent)
  2. Apply Hydro Pro ECO with a brush or roller to the desired surface.
  3. Let the surface dry and wait about 6 hours before stepping on it.

    After treatment 

    Mold, moss and lichens can represent a significant problem after the winter season, causing damage to our homes and threatening our health.

    With this practical guide and the combined professional treatment Remove Mold, Mold Control Restorative and Hydro Pro ECO, you will be able to eliminate mold effectively and protect the external surfaces of your home from the action of atmospheric agents.

    Not only will you keep your home safe, but you will enjoy a healthier and more welcoming environment for the whole family.
