The 6-Year Anti Mould Paint by Ronseal offers exceptional colour and protection against steam, moisture and general mould from building up. This type of paint is perfect for rooms with high humidity and lack of ventilation, with bathrooms and kitchens being ideal application areas. A unique feature of this paint is its ability to be scrubbed clean, allowing you to maintain a pristine finish.
Ensure you prepare the surface correctly to achieve an optimal finish. If you're applying this directly to a newly plastered wall, you must allow seven days for the plaster to dry, then seal it down before painting it with this paint. With previously painted walls, if there's mould present, use a dedicated mould killer to remove the spores. Any leftover flaking paint on the surface must be sanded down with sandpaper.
- Shake the can, listening for the mixing balls to rattle and continue for at least one minute.
- Holding the can 25cm-30cm away, spray directly to the surface in a sweeping action, maintaining an even coverage.
- Apply at least 2-3 coats, allowing 10 minutes between coats.
- Once you've applied the last coat, don't allow any moisture to build up in the room for at least 24 hours.
This paint isn't suitable for painting over; it is considered a top coat, and any emulsion applied over it will prevent the anti-mould formula from working. You are free to clean the surface after it's dried due to its formula, as it's very durable and scrubbable. Any leftover brushes or rollers with paint can be cleaned with warm, soapy water.
