Moulds in Loft Rooms: How to Get Rid of Them behind the Wardrobes?

They thrive in inadequately ventilated places without air circulation. Low air circulation is characteristic for areas behind the furniture. Moulds can appear on external walls as well (facade or circumferential walls) because these are colder than the other walls. If you have furniture placed around the circumferential walls, moulds are very likely to appear.

You can prevent the appearance of moulds behind the furniture also by applying the Nano Coat System active building material developed with special nanotechnology.

It is a fine-grained, paste-like building material for the interior, which reduces the risk of the appearance of moulds. It helps achieve an optimal humidity in the interior and prevents the condensation of water vapours on the surface thanks to its high porosity and permeability. It eliminates the cold spots (thermal bridges) on the walls and maintains a pleasant climate in the room.



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

Apply the Nano Coat System to the walls behind the furniture, to all the circumferential walls (facade, external walls) or to the places where thermal bridges are present. Apply it around the windows and balcony doors, too, because water vapours may condense in these places.

If your wall is already affected by moulds, the most important thing is to get rid of them and to do the necessary repairs to the structure of the wall; apply the building material only subsequently. By combining the Nano Coat System with
measures like regular ventilation and placement of the furniture minimum 10 to 15 cm from the wall, you can effectively prevent the appearance of moulds.

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.
