Mold removal and remediation can be time consuming, expensive and can pose a health threat. Mold survives in moist, damp environments and all it needs to thrive is water, oxygen and organic material.
The organic matter is often drywall – that after its been exposed to moisture can become a host for all kinds of mold species. But mold-resistant drywall was developed as a means to address this issue and provide prevention up front. The fiberglass mat for the paper used in traditional drywall has been substituted so that moisture cannot adhere to the organic paper material.
