Paints to Help Prevent Mildew

Mildew is a type of fungus that grows on moist surfaces and may have a distinctive odor. It is a thin, black, gray, or sometimes white growth produced by mold that is in the air. When the spores find a warm, moist home, they may grow to noticeable proportions. Bathrooms and laundry areas are more often affected, but any area or room that has a high moisture content in the air is vulnerable to mildew. According to the CDC, some people are sensitive to mildew and molds. They may experience respiratory symptoms or skin and eye irritations. In addition to health concerns, mildew can compromise the safety of buildings. It decomposes walls, tiles, and other areas. In the most serious cases, the structure becomes unsound and dangerous.

It’s normally the spring season that’s known for inspiring remodels to commercial buildings. Is this the best time of year to spruce up the office? It may not be.

Ceiling Painting Tips for Your Home or Business

When painting the interior of your home or business, it’s easy to overlook the ceiling when picking out your preferred color(s) and just paint it/keep it white. However, your ceilings can be an important part of your room’s aesthetic and simply slapping on a coat of white paint can be a missed opportunity to make a positive impression. To achieve your desired look, first decide if you want to fool the eye into believing the room is smaller and cozier or if you want to give the impression of a larger space. Ceiling Paint for Larger Rooms If your home or office has large rooms with high ceilings, your flooring and furnishings might take up less than half of the room.
