Keeping mould at bay

With the introduction of the Fitness for Human Habitation Act of 2019’ landlords face increasing pressure in the fight against mould and blackspot growth in their properties. This problem increases during the Autumn and Winter months.

Autumn arrives, now is the ideal time for landlords to protect the internal areas of their properties from mould and blackspot. To this end, Carrs Coatings, who are an NLA Recognised Supplier from Redditch, Worcestershire, manufactures:

Glixtone Fungi-Shield Anti-Mould & Blackspot Paint Never a Failure in 20 years.

It is a Highly Decorative internal paint that is washable, water-based, easy to use and suitable for any internal walls and ceilings.

Unlike most other anti-mould paints, Glixtone Fungi-Shield is manufactured using a unique combination of biocides bonded to specialised resins. Many other products use an already-made paint and then mix into it a fungicide. This means that not all of the paint will carry the same amount of the fungicide, giving an uneven distribution of the fungicide when applied. In contrast, the Carrs manufacturing process ensures that their special  resins and biocides are blended and bonded to each other. As a result, every part of Glixtone Fungi-Shield has exactly the same amount of biocide, giving a totally uniform distribution of their biocide when applied. Glixtone Fungi-Shield will then give long lasting protection, killing mould spores on contact. Carrs Coatings says the paint has never failed to provide long-term protection from mould and blackspot.

Conforming to the international standard ISO 9001 on quality management systems. The company’s tight environmental policy ensures minimal impacts impacts on the environment.

A long-lasting solution to mould

Now is the right time for landlords and property owners to think about protecting their properties. Brand Director for Glixtone – Nick Hodgetts says “as the weather gets more autumnal moving into the winter period, tenants close windows and doors and turn up the heating in your properties and their homes.  When there is no ventilation and plenty of moisture, which is created through ordinary activities such as showering, drying clothes, dish washing, cooking and even breathing, mould spores can germinate, multiply and flourish in the property”. .

While providing ventilation will assist in reducing problems of humidity and condensation, it may not completely eliminate mould growth. As well as being unsightly, mould can be a health hazard to tenants and if health inspectors are alerted, it can develop into an expensive problem.

Glixtone Fungi-Shield is a highly decorative and washable paint which is suitable for any internal walls and ceilings of a property that are susceptible to mould and blackspot. Many Landlords and Housing Associations now use Glixtone Fungi-Shield routinely as part of their normal maintenance and refurbishments as well as in their problem properties.

Carrs also recommends using its sterilising solution to remove any existing mould before applying Glixtone Fungi-Shield.For further information :
