Additional Information on Mold Protection
Mold needs moisture and a food source to grow. Food sources for mold can include unprotected wood, sheetrock and other building materials. When these materials are exposed to moisture, mold can begin to grow within 24 to 48 hours. Using advanced technology mold resistant building materials such as QuanTIM™ framing and sheathing products, building components can remain mold resistant for the life of the structure.
In addition to using mold resistant materials such as QuanTIM™, mold growth can be prevented by adopting moisture control measures in all stages of construction. Moisture control can be accomplished by:
- Proper storage of materials
- Workmanship that prevents exposure to water
- Home designs that reduce water vapor build-up
