Mold & Mildew Resistant
Mold and mildew develop in damp and dark conditions. They can grow and spread in a matter of 24 to 48 hours, which is why it is essential to keep the environment as dry as possible. At Bond Building Systems, we believe that constructing mold-resistant homes are the best way to prevent this fungus. Our system helps create durable and resilient structures that are more resistant to natural disasters like earthquakes, fires, hurricanes, and tornados as well.
Side Effects of Mold
Regular exposure to mold and mildew can cause a lot of health problems and create an unsafe environment in indoor spaces. Some of these problems can become chronic if you continue to live in a moldy environment. Here's a look at some of the side-effects of exposure to mold:
- Nasal stuffiness and blockage
- Coughing and throat irritation
- Eye irritation
- Skin infections and irritations
- Allergic reaction
People with a compromised immune system or lung function are even more vulnerable to mold and can experience severe side effects. If you live in damp or humid climates and have to deal with mold frequently, it is a good idea to take preventative measures. Opting for a mold-resistant structure is the best solution.
No building technique is 100% mold-proof, but it is possible to reduce the risk of infestation significantly by using the right materials and methods. We can prevent mold by creating a robust moisture barrier between the concrete and outdoor elements. It is also a good idea to add active waterproofing compounds in the shotcrete mixture.
Our system helps create mold-proof buildings by making sure there’s very little water penetration. The system also uses steel framing components like a steel mesh wall. Steel doesn't absorb or retain moisture like wood does, which ensures the wall remains dry and isn't vulnerable to mold.
Concrete structures with steel framing also dry off quicker. Mold and mildew are likely to develop if you have experienced storms or flooding recently. Lingering water and dampness can lead to an infestation quickly. If you use the right drying methods, a mold-resistant home won't retain water and will dry before the spores have an opportunity to settle, grow, and spread.
It is also a good idea to use a stucco finish instead of drywall or other cellulose-based finishing materials. Stucco isn't just resistant to mold, but it also relatively resistant to fire. It will add a layer of protection over your home.
