Mold behind the wardrobe – how to get rid of it?

Mold usually forms during autumn and winter due to increased dampness, which sometimes cannot be prevented even though the house has new windows or new insulation layer. The mold trives in poorly ventilated areas without air flow, like space behind furniture. Mold also appears on facade or perimeter walls. These walls are colder than others. If you have a cabinet located around the perimeter wall, it is very likely that you may find mold there.

Do not wait until the space behind the furnite gets infested by mold. Use Nano Coat System to prevent its formation and any future problem related to mold.

The material was developed by special nanotechnology that reduces the risk of mold formation. The high porosity and breathability of the material ensures optimum level of humidity in the interior and prevents the condensation of water vapor on the surfaces. Nano Coat System can reduce the dampness level by approximately 10% compared to the constructions without it.



On which parts of the bedroom should the material be applied?

Apply Nano Coat System to all walls and ceiling of the bedroom. Alternatively, you can apply the material to all peripheral (facade, exterior) walls and places where thermal bridges are located, around the windows and balcony doors. The
material prevents water vapor condensation on the surfaces.

If your walls are already infested by mold, it is important first to get rid of it and repair the wall construction, and only then apply the material.

A combination of Nano Coat System, regular ventilation and at least 10 -15 cm space between furniture and the wall can effectively prevent mold formation.

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 Homethe 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.
