Dealing With Molds and Mildew

Molds and mildew are immediate concerns when painting the interior of your homes, particularly the bathroom. Our interior painters know very well a question that arises when painting a bathroom or dealing with bathroom molds and mildew: Do you need a specialty paint that can inhibit their growth or will ordinary paint do?

In most cases, interior painters do not usually use specialty mold/mildew inhibiting or bathroom paint. So unless you have a history of mold and mildew in your home or must deal with high moisture, paints with semi-gloss or high-gloss finishes may be used. Semi-gloss finish has been highly recommended though for bathrooms as they are easy to clean and can withstand stains. Otherwise, look into specialized bathroom paints that can deal with excessive moisture, molds and mildew to keep your bathroom walls in tiptop shape. Mold-sealing primers are also being offered nowadays. Of course, primers has to dry up completely before applying the paint and finish of your choice.
