Why Is Mold Such a Concern?
Mold spores are constantly around us, and most types are relatively harmless, but a few species can be quite dangerous to human health. Once the more dangerous types of mold colonize an area and begin to release spores, the effects to those nearby can range from minor irritation of the eyes, nose and throat to serious allergy or asthma symptoms, or even major illnesses like lung infections or central nervous system damage.
With mold’s ability to cause serious, long-lasting health problems, it is important to prevent its growth indoors or control it whenever possible.
How Does FortiCel Work?
FortiCel is a liquid coating made by CertainTeed that is sprayed onto the structure of a building before insulation and any finished surfaces are installed. It is an environmentally friendly coating that prevents mold growth and the damage it can cause for up to 25 years. For the best results, the coating should be applied evenly to structural components until it reaches a thickness of 1 Mil (0.001 inches) wet. It can be applied to most types of residential and commercial building products, including:
- Steel studs
- Floor joists
