Earthpaint is honored to help in the Bahamas Relief effort. As we discussed earlier, this email will serve as a reference for your construction crews using Lime Prime
It's so sad what this hurricane did to the great people of Bahamas! Most of the Abacos was destroyed. For the buildings still standing, Preventing a mold nightmare is high priority. Lime Prime is the only way I know of to spray those buildings right away so people can move in fast. This should help reduce stress, health risks and buy time for Follow-Up repairs as everything dries out. Waiting for it all to dry before painting is asking for a mold nightmare. Everything just gets moldy as people move back in and then it's harder to fix. We spray it with Lime Prime now. Let it dry and Follow up.
Avoiding Mold Atriums & Rot: As you well know, relief efforts can be stressful and hurried. A Mold Atrium can be created when moisture logged areas get trapped with the wrong paint. Paint that seems to work on mold surfaces may not be made to work on
After the hurricanes and flooding our Property Management company has been unable to keep up with all of the mold damage. Many people have gotten sick from black mold and we need a way to prevent this from happening again. Can Lime Prime be used after flooding? What if there is a lot of mold infested in wet wood and drywall? Would coating the frame of a house during construction help?
