With their frequent exposure to water and humidity, the internal surfaces of bathrooms, kitchens, locker rooms, indoor swimming pools, and other areas prone to moisture can be adversely affected and can be vulnerable to mould in certain conditions.
Frequent cooking, cleaning and washing create added moisture and humidity in the air and can cause condensation on colder surfaces, promoting an environment for potential mould growth and surface deterioration. In addition to the unsightly appearance of mould, it can also cause allergic reactions, asthma, and other respiratory ailments (www.epa.gov/mould).

These solutions are specially formulated drywall linings with enhanced moisture and mould resistance, making them ideal for these high humidity areas by reducing the effect of water on the surfaces.
