What Is The Best Anti Mould Paint?

When it comes to finding the best anti-mould paint for the walls or ceilings in your home, it’s important to think about the surface of the question.

When using anti-mould paint on the walls and ceiling of your home, you do not want a product that is clearly remedial. Paint manufacturers go to great lengths to produce mould preventing coatings that perform exactly like interior paint. Here at Advanced Chemical Specialists, we recommend the following anti-mould paint:

  • ACS Anti Mould Emulsion Paint - This is an excellent, premium quality, low odour coating guaranteed to protect against unsightly and unhygienic black mould even when there is persistent condensation. Ideal for walls and ceilings in private and social housing and a wide range of public and commercial buildings. It is fully washable and resistant to the effects of condensation when the coating is fully dried out
  • ACS Universal Primer/Stain Blocker - Single pack, waterborne, a fast-drying isolating primer for multi-surface application. This covers and effectively seals water stains, crayon, soot, mould and other stains liable to bleed into decorative topcoats.

Why Do I Need Mould Resistant Paint?

Though removing and protecting against mould may seem like its own reward, there are other benefits that come along with the application of mould resistant paint. These include:

  • Wall Protection - Mould does not just look ugly, it actually eats away at the surfaces on which it grows. Though it needs moisture to grow, it also needs the organic surface it attaches itself to.
  • Clean Air - It goes without saying mould is linked to a number of medical conditions, many of the respiratory. Spores in people’s homes can cause sinus infections, sore throats, asthma, coughing, rashes, and more have been linked to mould.
  • Moisture Resistance - To prevent mould, these products also prevent the source of their growth - moisture. Humidity and steam resistant chemistries protect against mould for up to 5 years or more, depending on the paint. If the mould is occurring because of a problem with damp, you should look for an anti damp paint and the cause of dampness.

Adding all of these together, these benefits make a building healthier, cleaner and less maintenance.

Anti Mould Paint Additive

The problem with anti-mould paint is that you are limited to the colours available; the selection is nowhere near as generous as a regular emulsion. An solves that problem because you can add it to any regular emulsion. Black spot mould growth is a common problem, it not only leaves ugly black staining on internal paint finishes but the airborne fungal spores have also been proven to aggravate respiratory complaints that are associated with poor air quality. An additive is widely used by private landlords and social housing providers to treat persistent problem areas by forming a long-lasting, fungicidal barrier that moulds just cannot tolerate. You basically mix the liquid with the paint of your choice, and it becomes anti-bacterial paint preventing mould and mildew from multiplying, therefore they die out before creating any mouldy patches. Most paint additives are colourless and odourless, so they don’t taint the paint it’s being mixed with.

Anti Mould Paint or Anti Condensation Paint?

The line between anti-mould and anti-condensation paints is somewhat blurred. Many anti-mould paints feature some water repellent properties and conversely, some anti-condensation paints will be impregnated with a fungicide or biocide.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Anti Mould Paints

    What is Mould?

    Mould is a type of fungi that has over several hundred thousand species. While many of the species are harmless, there are about 15 different species which are considered to be toxic by releasing mycotoxins, which are harmless to both humans and animals.

    Does Anti Mould Paint Work?

    Measuring the effectiveness of anti mould paint is, in part, a management of your expectations.

    First of all anti-mould paints do work and in many cases, will keep mould firmly at bay. However if your bathroom is regularly drenched in condensation from heavy showers every day and is not properly ventilated or dried the effectiveness will decline as expected.

    It is also important to mention that biocides degrade over time and won’t remain effective forever. In response to this many manufacturers typically provide a 5-6 year guarantee on the effectiveness of the biocides within their products. This means, in order to remain effective, anti-mould paints must be reapplied every 5 years or so.

    In short, you can expect mould paints to work, however, they are not a magic cure. And, if you keep your expectations inline with the results you can realistically expect you shouldn’t be disappointed.

    What Types of Mould are There?

    There are many variations of mould types that are commonly found in homes, all of which are potentially dangerous to humans and animals, and that’s why it’s ever so important to treat and remove mould as soon as it's discovered.

    Most people describe the types of mould by colour, which is black, white, green, grey or brown. But the reality is, the colour rarely tells you how potentially harmful the mould is. There are dangerous and harmless kinds of moulds in each colour group. In some countries mould is categorised into 3 classes of danger based on health risk.

    • Class A: the most dangerous type of mould, which should not be present in your home as they can pose severe health risks, such as infections and/or creations of toxins. If found, it should be dealt with carefully and removed immediately.
    • Class B: This type of mould also poses health risks, like allergic reactions and skin irritations. The effects commonly occur over long periods of time.
    • Class C: This type of mould is not dangerous to humans health, however, they can cause damage to your home (structural damage), so still needs to be removed.

    Can You Wallpaper an Anti Mould Paint?

    This is a common question when it comes to anti-mould paints and whilst you can wallpaper over them it will obviously hinder the efficiency of the paint. You should also ensure the wallpaper you choose has some kind of fungicidal treatment.

    It is worth noting that the wallpaper itself will absorb a level of moisture and keep this trapped against the wall for longer than water which deposits on a painted surface. This will increase the chances of mould growing. Generally, it is a good idea not to wallpaper areas of your home that generate a lot of moisture such as your kitchen or bathroom.

    How Can I Prevent Mould Coming Back?

    To truly deal with a humidity based mould problem you need to ensure your home does not provide the ideal conditions for its growth. Lack of airflow and high moisture build-up within the home are two of the main causes that need to be mitigated.

    A lot of the time we are the cause of high humidity within our homes, this becomes compounded during the winter when the moisture we create cooking, bathing, and even breathing becomes trapped within our homes. This condenses to leave moisture on our walls, ceilings and windows. Creating the ideal breeding conditions for bacteria and mould.

    Fortunately, the remedies for this are quite easy and simply opening the bathroom window after showering, using the extractor fan in your kitchen or buying a dehumidifier will help remove the trapped moisture, improve airflow and help inhibit mould growth.
