Why EnviroShield is a superior product
To understand why EnviroShield is a superior product, it’s important to first understand why mold thrives. Mold requires four conditions to thrive: food; the right temperatures; oxygen; and moisture. So, eliminate one of the four and the mold will disappear, but that’s easier said then done!
- Molds eat just about everything, like wood; paper; leather; dry wall; even paint and dust!
- As for the right temperatures, unfortunately mold thrives in the same temperatures we do.
- Oxygen (fortunately) is all around us.
- Moisture … that’s the key!
One of the most misunderstood problems is the control of moisture within a building. Damaging moisture originates not only from outside of a building but also from the inside. Cooking, breathing, washing and drying clothes, gas stoves, furnaces, humidifiers and air conditioning all produce moisture.
Solving moisture problems can often be expensive and time-consuming. The first step to eliminate moisture is to perform an inventory of problems and to rank them in their order of impact. Problems, like leaky pipes, that are easy and inexpensive to resolve should be addressed first. However water intrusion though foundation walls can be very expensive to repair. Such problems often require major and costly repairs like exterior foundation coatings and costly excavations to install or replace clogged French drains.
EnviroShield™ offers an affordable new technology: Enviro-MT™ coatings which will not support the growth of mold regardless of moisture conditions.
Other mold prevention products are inferior to Enviro-MT because they do not breathe: Enviro-MT allows a slow water vapor transfer (WVT). The slow or controlled release of water vapor pressure keeps the product to substrate bond secure and strong. Plus the slow release of pressure will not push out the anti-microbial additives.
Inferior coating products peel or blow off the substrate and leach their anti-microbial additives. Once the anti-microbial dissipates, these inferior coatings become food for mold.
