Mold Prevention Information

Product Information

Gypsum board does not generate or support the growth of mold when it is properly transported, stored, handled, installed, and maintained. However, mold spores are present everywhere and when conditions are favorable, mold can grow on practically any surface. Observing these guidelines will help minimize the potential for mold growth on gypsum board. Our M-Bloc® product line has been developed to minimize the potential for growth of mold and mildew.
