How to Get Rid of Moulds in the Cellar?

Cellars are usually rooms with increased humidity, and that is the source of moulds, too. Cellars are situated under the ground and the soil, which is the source of water, can penetrate into their walls. To protect the things stored in the cellar against moulds, it is important to eliminate excessive humidity.

The Nano Coat System building material also helps you prevent the appearance of moulds.

This special mixture developed with state-of-the-art nanotechnology reduces the risk of the appearance of moulds. This active building material creates a thermal reflective layer which reflects thermal radiation back to the room while removing excessive moisture. It prevents the condensation of water vapours on the surface, and the high porosity and permeability of the material ensures an optimal humidity in the interior.




Which Places Should the Material be Applied to in the Cellar?


Apply the Nano Coat System to all the walls and the ceiling of the cellar. You can apply it also to all the circumferential walls (facade, external walls) or to the places where thermal bridges are present.

If your wall is already affected by moulds, the most important thing is to get rid of them and repair the structure of the wall; apply the building material only subsequently.

Combined with external insulation, the NanoCoat System is an ideal solution to moisturein the cellar.

Nano Coat System consists of: 

Nano PT -
represents deep penetration that stabilizes the foundations. It is used for absorbent cohesive surfaces and is applied with a brush or roller.

Nano AM - it is used on all other surfaces where we can not use Nano PT. Thus, non-absorbent cohesive surfaces such as glass, iron and others. Apply with a brush or roller.

Nano TC - it is used to repair holes, cracks and small irregularities of size up to 3-4mm.

Nano Coat Home – the final layer of mass applied by a stainless comb trowel to a pre-treated, smooth surface of about 2 mm thick. After drying, grind the surface with sandpaper.

 

Apply in the following order: 

1. Nano PT or Nano AM,

2. Nano TC, if necessary to repair the surface,

3. final layer Nano Coat Home.
