Mould is that pesky uninvited guest that just refuses to leave. In sunny and humid Singapore, mould is a persistent issue that plagues many homes. It’s not just unsightly — it can post some serious health risks. In this guide, we’ll explore how to identify and remove mould, and ensure it never comes back again with the help of Gush paints.

Step 1: How to identify mould.

Mould often appears as black spots or patches on walls, ceilings, or other surfaces. It thrives in damp and humid environments, making bathrooms, kitchens, and basements common breeding grounds. Musty odours and respiratory irritation may also indicate the presence of mould.

Step 2: Understand the dangers of mould.

Mould can cause a range of health issues, especially for individuals with allergies or asthma. It can trigger respiratory symptoms like coughing, sneezing, and shortness of breath. Prolonged exposure may lead to more severe conditions, making it imperative to address mould problems swiftly.

Step 3: Effective mould removal.

Removing mould involves a thorough cleaning process. Use appropriate cleaning solutions and protective gear. Scrub the affected areas and ensure they're completely dry post-cleaning. However, to truly eliminate mould and prevent its return, turning to Gush paints is a game-changer.

Step 4: Preventing mould with Gush paints.

Gush interior paints are the top choice when it comes to persistent mould issues in the home. Our paints have been put through rigorous testing for its anti-moulding and anti-bacterial capabilities. As part of the SS150 test requirements for interior paints in Singapore, our paints were inoculated with Aspergillus niger and showed no mould growth for the duration of the test period.

Beyond that, we’ve tested our paints in local malls — particularly areas located near air-conditioning units that suffer from frequent condensation and mould growth. Over a period of 18 months, the Gush-coated surface showed an absolute resistance to mould growth while its surrounding areas were devastated.

What’s the secret science?

Our paints feature 3 anti-mould features in 1.

Dehydrate: The Gush Absorption Element (GAE) in our paints absorbs and desorbs moisture from painted surfaces, depriving mould spores of the moisture they need to germinate.

Disintegrate: Antimicrobial agents in our paints break down mould’s organic structure, effectively neutralizing them.

Destroy: The Gush Proprietary Catalyst (GPC) creates a unique structural layer on the surface that ruptures the membranes of mould microbes upon contact.

Gush paints: the best choice for your health.

By choosing Gush paints, you're not only adding vibrant colours to your walls but also ensuring a healthier living environment, free from the clutches of mould. Make a lasting investment in your home's well-being and aesthetic appeal with Gush paints — where beauty meets functionality. Say goodbye to mould worries and hello to a mould-free haven.

Note: Ensure mould is fully eliminated first before coating your walls with Gush paints. If you engage painting services with our preferred painting partner, Groundworks, you’ll get a 2-year anti-mould warranty for good measure.
