With housing start-ups nationwide, especially in southern and more humid climates, and more powerful storms hitting the US causing the need to fix and rebuild homes and small businesses, mold complaints and lawsuits along with the health issues they create will continue their steady rise. Enclean, USA, environmentally friendly mold treatment and cleaning specialists, has brought its EPA-registered and compliant, proven safe, microbe shield technology to the home construction market to help address this critical issue.

Enclean, USA’s technology prohibits the growth of mold on any surface to which it is applied and it is guaranteed for 10-full years. Applied during the building process, before drywall and insulation are installed, Enclean’s anti-microbial treatment protects against mold growth should any type of water leak occur. The company will be focusing its efforts on single and multi-family new construction housing across the country. Its technology can be applied for pennies on the dollar versus the current slew of anti-mold applications that can cost $10/sq. ft. or more.

“As past President of DeLuca Homes' Southeast, our Company contacted Enclean after three hurricanes had wreaked havoc on Central Florida.  Many of our homes that were not yet dried in were saturated with rain during the storms.  Mold was on everyone’s radar and it was a serious concern for us as well.  Enclean consulted with us with the drying out process,and then applied their mold preventing technology and provided our homebuyers with a 10 year warranty. We were so satisfied with Enclean and the assistance they provided us, we incorporated their mold prevention coating into our building process.  To date, I am not aware of any mold related claim related to any of our homes.” (Robert T. Rosen, past President, DeLuca Homes’ Southeast)

The anti-microbial technology has been time-tested, is chemically and environmentally proven safe, is manufactured under strict conditions in an ISO 9002 facility and when applied is colorless and odorless. It’s 10-year guarantee means builders and homeowners can breathe better, work better and live better without fear of mold infestation for a decade.

“For as long as I can remember, mold has been a concern within the building and construction industry and there has been very little in the way of new code or new building practices to reduce mold related issues,” said Jon Covington, President and CEO of Enclean, USA.  “With the average mold remediation costing somewhere between $10,000 to $20,000 we need an up front solution that works. Now Enclean, USA is offering a simple, cost-effective, environmentally safe and guaranteed way to protect builders and homeowners. We want to do our best to eliminate the possibility that builders will be sued for multi-million dollar settlements and at the same time protect homeowners and their families from mold issues that in most cases can be avoided.”

To date, Enclean, USA’s anti-mold technology treatment has proven itself in more than 4000 homes and 10,000 apartment units. In that time, the company has not had to address a single 10-year warranty call.
