Mission: mold

Remove & prevent mold

All kinds of mushrooms - and therefore also molds - can be found practically everywhere. They take on numerous functions, including the decomposition of organic materials, which is why they play an important role in the cycle of nature. Molds form braids made of threads that are typical for them, as well as tiny spores that are transported through the air.

Indoor mold becomes a serious problem when its concentration exceeds a certain level. Then it can cause damage to the furnishings, plaster and masonry and be dangerous for the health of the residents. For these reasons, as soon as its excesses are visible, it should be removed as soon as possible. The greatest danger for the spread of mold in your own four walls is too high humidity. Because it needs no oxygen, no light and only a few nutrients to grow.

What types of mold are there?

Experts believe that there are around 250 types of mold. About 000 are currently known. Of these, in turn, only a few are responsible for damage to the building fabric or health consequences for the residents. Black, white and green mold are particularly common indoors. However, red and yellow species are also relevant.

If a mold finds sufficient moisture and nourishment, a cotton-wool or velvet-like coating forms on the nutrient substrate. Over time, this grows into large fungal colonies. The respective fruiting body is responsible for the coloring. An exact determination of which mold it is, however, is only possible through an expert test by the specialist. Green mold is the most widespread, but less dangerous than the other species. The black mold is considered to be particularly aggressive for humans and animals.

Have mold removed professionally

If you find the typical stains of mold on walls or ceilings, you should contact a specialist company such as MVM AG immediately. A specialist analyzes the affected area expertly and knows the necessary technology for the long-term elimination of the unwanted outgrowth. Simply painting over it with commercially available wall paints makes the mold invisible for a while, but does not remove it.

We at MVM AG treat the infected areas professionally with a coating that is resistant to mold and is also used in hospitals, for example. This is the Bioni System Food, which was developed together with the well-known Fraunhofer Institute. The system, which contains neither fungiides nor biocides, can be used wherever plaster and paint are stable.

Colloidal silver is bound in the paint, which penetrates the cells of the fungus and destroys their membrane. As a result, it can no longer multiply and it dies. After the treatment, Bioni System Food guarantees permanent protection and long-lasting resistance.

How to successfully prevent mold

Whether or not you have been affected by mold infestation, you can prevent infestation or re-infestation yourself with simple methods. Get a hygrometer and regularly check the humidity in all living rooms. In the long run, it should be around 55% to 60%. The room temperature is also an important factor. We recommend 20 ° C in comfortably used rooms, around 17 ° C to 18 ° C in the bedroom, in the kitchen and when you are not there.

The third important factor is proper ventilation. The best way to do this is to ventilate the room several times for five to ten minutes, especially in bathrooms, kitchens and bedrooms. If this is not possible for certain reasons, a dehumidifier can help. Problematic exterior walls can generally be protected by painting with the Bioni System Food.
