Moulds are a type of pluricellular fungi that reproduce via spores. In damp environments, microorganisms proliferate, forming a bacterial culture that generate the moulds on the surfaces with which they come into contact.
Inside buildings, the spores of some moulds cause major allergies; what’s more, the spores of some fungi release powerful toxins that once in our lungs, create pulmonary inflammations and lesions especially in children.
Mould is harmful to all surfaces. Even if we only see the superficial part of it, in the long run it can affect the inner wall structure and cause paints to chalk and plasters to detach.
Airlite is mould-resistant. Moulds are reduced by the two-fold action of the surface oxidisation and the high level of alkalinity of the surface, which together stop moulds from developing.
