Mold on the ceiling

A stretch ceiling is a suspended system, so the design itself predisposes the existence of a sub-ceiling space with its own microclimate. It is there that mold most often forms and grows rapidly, affecting more and more areas.

Over time, the scale of the problem can become catastrophic. As soon as you notice signs of mold on a stretch ceiling, start taking steps to eliminate it immediately. OBOZREVATEL tells you how to solve the problem quickly and effectively.

As colonies of fungal bacteria grow, they release tens of billions of spores into the air, each of which can cause serious illness. Mold provokes allergic reactions and other skin diseases, asthma, and liver damage, and can even lead to cancer. Each spore contains mycotoxins that cause dire consequences for human health.

The main causes of mold formation include the following:

  • lack of ventilation or poor performance of the ventilation system;
  • high air humidity;
  • the temperature is constantly maintained at the optimal level for the fungus.

In fact, mold grows in "greenhouse" conditions. There are five basic steps to get rid of mold.

Wet cleaning

Without wet cleaning, you shouldn't even start "anti-fungal" measures. Wipe the ceiling and walls with a damp cloth or sponge to remove surface dirt.

Spray against mold

Buy a special antifungal spray. It will kill harmful spores, stop the growth of mold, and help prevent future mold growth.

Ventilation system

If mold continues to appear after anti-fungal measures, it is likely due to poor ventilation. Install ventilation grilles or fans in the room to ensure air circulation.

Problems with electrical wiring

High humidity can negatively affect the operation of electrical wiring. Experts recommend checking all outlets and switches and replacing them if necessary.

Professional help

If all measures fail, you should contact specialists who will determine the cause of the mold and help you get rid of it.
