Roofing can become a breeding ground for mold and mildew growth, posing a persistent concern for property owners. Neglecting this issue can lead to significant structural and aesthetic damage. Stains, discoloration, foul odors and weakened physical properties are just a few of the problems that can arise, compromising the overall quality of living conditions.
In an article for Roofing Today, Dr Mai Ha, Senior Product Development Engineer at Microban International, addresses the importance of taking proactive measures to prevent mold and mildew growth in roofing spaces.
Dr Ha explores the benefits of integrating antimicrobial technology into PVC roofing materials to effectively combat microbial attack. Dr Mai also underscores the urgency of shifting away from OPBA-based technologies in Europe while highlighting the growing global demand for more environmentally friendly alternatives.
