Mold growth on your decks or balconies can seem like just an unsightly and pesky issue to deal with, but it can lead to more issues than you think. Outdoor mold growth can not only lead to mold growth in your home but can also damage your property, decrease property value and be detrimental to your health!
Mold growth on decks and balconies can be tracked into your home on your shoes, welcoming it into your everyday living spaces. Increased exposure to moldy areas can be hazardous for children, the elderly, or those with sensitivities to mold. It can cause watery eyes, runny nose, sneezing, itching, coughing, wheezing, difficulty breathing, headache, and fatigue! Outdoor mold growth left unchecked can spread and can begin to damage the materials it’s growing on, leading to costly renovations. If issues with mold growth in outdoor or indoor spaces aren’t dealt with, it can also effectively decrease your property value.
To avoid the hassle of mold growth outside or inside your home, it’s important to effectively waterproof surfaces that are exposed to moisture, such as outdoor decks, balconies, or bathrooms. There are a lot of waterproofing membranes on the market, but many of them can contain toxic ingredients, crack over time, and require extra surface prep or added materials to be able to use them. PerfectPrimers product PerfectMembrane is a concrete coatings primer, Sealer, Waterproofing, asbestos encapsulation, and Concrete Crack Repair Isolation all in one. This liquid-applied, fabric-reinforced waterproof membrane and flashing system is the perfect underlay for your overlay coatings or finishes. Making it an ideal choice for waterproofing your floor deck, terrace, roof balcony, bathrooms, etc.
But how does this product work? Unveiling the science behind waterproofing membranes will help show why this product offers superior protection. This highly effective membrane is composed of two unique materials—Polytex fabric and PerfectPrimer—that work together to create an impermeable seal that protects your space against moisture, dirt, mold, and mildew.
The first component of PerfectMembrane is Polytex fabric, which is a special type of polymer-blend fabric designed for maximum durability and resistance to wear. It provides a layer of protection between the underlying surface and the environment while also preventing water-related damage like mold, mildew, and rust. Unlike traditional fabrics which can become brittle over time or lose their waterproof qualities when exposed to extreme temperatures, polytex fabric is designed to stand up to even the toughest conditions. Polytex is ideal for use in harsh environments such as outdoor decks, patios, balconies, and other areas that are exposed to prolonged periods of sun or moisture.
The second ingredient in waterproofing membranes is PerfectPrimer, an advanced polymer coating that works with Polytex fabric to create a superior barrier against water and other environmental elements. The primer bonds tightly with surfaces like wood, concrete, brick, stucco, siding, tile, and more to create a watertight seal that is long-lasting and highly effective. PerfectPrimer also contains the Polytex 2-in-1, which locks out moisture while allowing air to pass through, allowing your space to remain dry and comfortable even during humid or rainy conditions.
These two materials make PerfectMembrane one of the strongest waterproofing membranes on the market today. PerfectMembrane’s superior protection against water, dirt, mold, mildew, and other environmental elements, offers a reliable solution for those looking to keep their spaces safe from harm.
