Eliminating Mold Problems With Vinyl Ceiling Tiles

March 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 185

Homeowners who are looking to redo their ceilings and who want good looks, affordability, ease of care and safety all rolled into one may want to consider vinyl ceiling tiles. The decorative appearance of vinyl ceiling tiles is what will likely draw consumers to this particular product initially, but the host of other benefits vinyl ceiling tiles provide that will hook them.

Vinyl ceiling tiles add a nice, clean look to any room in the home or office. Beyond that, they're also quite functional, affording homeowners easy, washable cleanup so that they can keep their new ceiling looking as fresh and new as the day it was installed. In fact, these tiles are virtually maintenance free. What's more, they're a cost-effective alternative to the other ceiling options out there like plaster, wood and tin.

Perhaps the most appealing aspect of vinyl ceiling tiles, however, is that they are waterproof. As a result, they resist mold and mildew buildup that can be so damaging to one's health and safety. Indeed, the Washington State Department of Health singles out ceiling tiles as one of the most likely places within the home where mold can grow.

When moisture hits the spores of which mold is made, those spores begin multiplying and destroying. As the Washington State Department of Health explains, "The mold grows best when there is lots of moisture from a leaky roof, high humidity, or flood." Vinyl ceiling tiles can ward off any moisture that happens to seep through the roof, thereby preventing mold from forming on their exterior surface where people are most likely to breathe it in.

The organization goes on to point out, "There is no way to get rid of all molds and mold spores from your home. But you can control mold growth by keeping your home dry." And thanks to their waterproof fabrication, vinyl ceiling tiles help you do just that.

The New York Department of Health cites things to be on the lookout for in your home that might be a sign you've got a mold problem. "Indications of a moisture problem may include discoloration of the ceiling or walls, warping of the floor, or condensation on the walls or windows."

If your ceilings are showing water stains or other moisture signs, consider what new vinyl ceiling tiles may have to offer. As the organization stresses, "The key to preventing mold growth is to control all moisture problems." A good place to start is with a new ceiling that prevents moisture from above from entering the home in the first place.

Cleaning up the mold problem is key to preventing mold exposure symptoms, which can include nasal congestion, irritated eyes, asthmatic-type breathing difficulties, coughing and an irritated throat. That cleanup process begins with eliminating the source of the moisture problem. It then entails discarding any porous materials on which mold has been allowed to grow unchecked. Those materials should then be replaced with nonporous alternatives. And in the case of the ceiling, vinyl ceiling tiles offer precisely one such alternative.
