Save thousands of dollars in repairs!
Most boat insurance policies typically don't cover mould damage. So it can be a rude awakening to open your boat and be greeted with a dank, musty smell or an interior full of mildewy cushions, carpets and headliners. Mould spreads by forming spores, and every boat aleady has them. The key is to deny them what they want so they can't grow.
Mould grows with warmth and humidity and once formed, can survive for years, even if conditions change. And, as anyone who's waited too long to clean out a refrigerator can attest, mould can also survive in cooler temperatures.
A single leak can start spores growing. Rain leaking through hatches will make a boat's interior a mould haven, as will leaking portlights and loose stanchions. On sailboats, chainplates that penetrate the deck and deck-stepped masts are also a common problem, as are deck hardware (cleats, rails and windlasses)
Mould can then spread to bedding, mattresses, clothing, towels and other items , making a day on the boat a very unpleasant experience and a health risk.
After repairing visible leaks, it is important that a mould removal process is undertaken to eradicate the mould and mould spores. Especially in the confined environment of a marine vessel, it is advisable to use a safe mould removal product like 'Enzycleanse, instead of toxic chemicals which can cause significant health problems to all concerned.
The mould removal process should be repeated each year to keep your boat in a healthy condition and protect you and your family from the harmful effects of mould infestation.
