With spring in full swing, summer is just around the corner. If you have a basement, chances are you spend quite a bit of time down there in the summer, or maybe you’re hoping to make your basement more inhabitable by renovating. If your basement is a livable space, are you aware of how important it is to air it out to keep the air healthy? You likely don’t have good ventilation in your basement, which will lead to a buildup of indoor toxins. This summer, you need to prepare your basement by using Activa Coating! Activa can help make the air downstairs safer to breathe.
Remove Must and Mold
Depending on where you live and what the weather is like in the warmer months, your basement could experience musty smells and mold (perhaps even year-round). When you, your family, friends, and companion animals want to get away, chances are it won’t be in the basement if it’s not clean and smelling fresh. Activa Coating can help! Activa uses the power of photocatalysis to help remove odors and pollutants from the air, while aiding to keep the walls that have been painted free of germs, dirt, and mold buildup. This can make the space perfect for relaxing, playing games, and enjoying a break from the summer heat.
Please Note: If you already have mold or mildew on your walls, DO NOT use Activa Coating over the mold and mildew. The walls will need to be cleaned with bleach to kill the mildew spores prior to painting. Or, the walls will need to be completely remediated by a professional if you have mold. The photocatalytic process will not help unless the wall is completely clean prior to painting.
Take a Break from the Heat
When you paint your basement with Activa Coating, you’re creating a safe space for everyone to enjoy spending their time. What do we mean by safe? Well, the air inside your home is two to five times more polluted than outside air, and that’s in the part of your home that has ventilation. Your basement likely doesn’t have as much ventilation, so it’s possible that the air down there is far more polluted than it is upstairs. To keep yourself and your loved ones safe, you need to remain mindful of the indoor air quality, especially in areas where you will be spending a lot of time.
“I am using this in my basement, as there is a moisture problem there, and paints like DryLock etc. only mostly work. This went on easily – almost too easily – as it was sometimes hard to see where I had left off. I’ve had it in place a few weeks and so far so good. It seems to be staying clean. I am purchasing more to finish the basement, and then if I continue to be happy will to the outside chimney bricks as they gather a moss.” – AlConquistador
