    Painters & Decorators

    What are the best paint brands or/and products on the market to prevent mould and mildew growth? Are there any additional products that can be applied to surfaces to help stop these issues arising in the first place?

    "Always clean the mould & mildew off completely before applying paint, there are many products available online, but you should wear gloves & have plenty of ventilation.
    The Dulux anti mould paints are good, one of the best ways of helping these problem areas is by having plenty of ventilation."

    "Dulux has a great anti mould paint. You must ensure all the mould is removed before painting. You can get a good spray by Kilrock which works wonders. Once the painting is done you must ensure to air the room as much as possible by opening windows after showers and baths, and during the winter. If you are drying laundry directly on radiators this can cause mould around the house. You can also buy dehumidifiers which used daily make a big difference."

    "You can buy pva. Use it before painting, you need to water it down first, and then apply it. It dry's clear, and then you can paint over it. This is the best way to stop and treat, damp and mould."
