Here at IPS Perforating, Inc., we want to help you protect your home or business from mold and mildew. To do this, we offer perforating services for wall coverings — Type I and Type II — that will prevent the buildup of moisture and thus reduce your risk of mold growth. In this article, we’ll go over more about why we encourage you to perforate wall coverings and how they will help keep you safe from mold.
While you may assume that the best way to deal with a moisture problem is to use watertight wall coverings, in practice the opposite is often true. For instance, most standard vinyl wall coverings are solid sheets of plastic that water cannot pass through, and this means that any water in the walls themselves will be stuck there, creating the perfect conditions for mold growth.
In our experience here at IPS Perforating, Inc., the best way to prevent this scenario is to use perforated wall coverings. Just as the name suggests, perforated wall coverings are punctured with many tiny holes, which act as micro-vents to let trapped moisture escape. Instead of building up behind a solid vinyl sheet, moisture can now escape into the air and evaporate, greatly reducing your risk of mold.
We at IPS Perforating, Inc. hope that this article has been helpful to you, and that it has given you insight into how to best protect your property against mildew and mold.
