What to do if mould is effecting your health?
What’s the easiest way to stop mould growing on indoor surfaces?
It’s no secret that damp and mould can greatly affect the liveability of a property, leading to complaints from tenants and disruption for landlords.
Block managers are also increasingly aware of how this can cause considerable discomfort for occupants with respiratory difficulties if not correctly managed. Fortunately, there is a way of nipping this in the bud before this becomes an issue. A new formula from Micro-Fresh has banished bad bacteria from buildings and built freshness into homes and workspaces- all while maintaining the health and safety considerations associated with these issues.
In this blog post, part of our breaking the mould series, we're going to explore this cost-effective way for you as a landlord or block manager to meet compliance requirements - answering all your questions about how best prepare for and mitigate against potential problems relating to damp and mould accumulation.
What is Home-Fresh and how does it work?
Home-Fresh® Antimicrobial Technology is revolutionizing mould prevention. Through its patented formulation, it's able to block dampness and resist the growth of mould, as well as other microorganisms. As a result, homeowners, facilities managers and builders are now able to incorporate this beneficial technology into their buildings via various products that contain the formulation such as carpets and paints. This provides an effective solution for mould prevention in high humidity areas where mould would traditionally struggle to be eliminated.
Home-Fresh is the only open market mould prevention solution to be accredited by the HSE (Health and Safety Executive). This verification process takes a year which means that if you need a solution to prevent mould immediately, it is the only tried and tested method of guaranteeing mould and mildew stays away. Our HSE testing involved an extensive six-month experiment, wherein our solution was applied within a shower interior and then subjected to two daily five minute sessions of water spray. At the conclusion of this trial period, no mould had grown.
