Banishing black mould not only eradicates the unsightly black staining, it suppresses the release of airborne fungal spores which can inflame respiratory complaints, including asthma. Anti-Mould Paint is used by landlords and housing associations to improve air quality in challenging environments.
How does it work?
One of the most common calls to our technical department is to ask, “How do I get rid of black mould on walls?” or “How do I treat a damp, mouldy ceiling?” Fortunately, the answer is usually fairly simple and the mould paint is easy to apply.
In over 90% of cases there is no “damp problem” as such, by which we mean the building does not have any structural defects which are facilitating moisture ingress either from the ground (rising damp) or from rainfall (penetrating damp). Far more commonly the enemy is simple condensation. And the black spot fungus positively thrives in the humid conditions that accompany condensation.
Condensation occurs whenever warm, moisture laden air “condenses” (turns from vapour back to liquid) on a cold surface. This is most commonly noticed in bathrooms where shower steam often builds up in droplets on the window panes, mirrors and ceramics. However, there are many indoor surfaces where moisture condenses on cold surfaces, less visibly e.g., on external walls or on metal surfaces including domestic appliances.
Open a window or install an extractor fan as a more permanent solution but by whatever means possible, improve the air movement and air quality within the room in the first instance. Make sure double glazed window systems have their trickle vents open, and that brick vents are not covered up or otherwise obscured by furniture etc.
Of course, sometimes a build-up of at least some condensation is unavoidable (kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms) in which case you need an effective anti-mould paint because there is a second thing in addition to moisture, that our uninvited black fungus needs to survive and that is a food source. It’s a primitive beast so nourishment can be dust accumulated on the wall behind a wardrobe or plaster or even paint…. In fact, emulsion paint is perfect, often containing tasty China clay, water and colour pigment!
Kingfisher Anti-Mould Paint creates a mould-intolerant finish that renders the paint inedible to the fungus, so it cannot establish or maintain itself in that environment.
How to use Anti-Mould Paint (Fungicidal Paint)?
The infected area should be thoroughly sanitised to reduce the propensity for re-infection. Pre-treat the area with a dilute solution in warm water of
Kingfisher Mould Cure. Mould Cure is a broad-spectrum mould treatment which is formulated to remove all traces of fungal spores. Apply with a sponge working from the outside of the infected area inwards towards the centre to avoid inadvertently scattering the spores. Dip the sponge back into the solution and ring out after each pass. Important! Wipe inwards from at least 400mm beyond the evident infected area.
Filling & Repairs
Fill any imperfections with standard decorator’s filler and sand smooth in accordance with normal decorating procedures.
Apply 2 x coats by brush or roller, making sure to apply evenly and consistently over the entire surface. Avoid over-loading the brush or roller. You should apply two coats and the first coat will normally be touch dry in 2 hours at 20 deg C. Allow at least 4 hours before re-coat to avoid pick-up of the first coat.
