main cause of mold and mildew on the walls of the house - moisture, which occurs in the subfield and penetrates the wall of the house.The appearance of mildew on the walls means that the spores fungus infected not only the surface of the walls, but the land itself under the house.In such cases, the walls after cleaning is necessary to process antiseptic compounds, and the upper, the infected, the layer of earth from the underground - to remove.After this must be done so that the wall always in a dry state.

What can be done to prevent infection with fungus or walls to prevent its re-emergence?Firstly, if you have a high spring are ground water and the water reaches the walls around the perimeter of the site must be made drainage ditch.Ditch should be done with special geotextile films, rubble and gravel.Stoke ditch should be displayed in a common pipe.If your village does not provide such a pipe, it is necessary to dig a cesspool.

Second rule: you need good ventilation underground facilities.Moist air -
a perfect breeding ground for not only fungi but also bacteria.For the ventilation of underground, even when device base, make special ventilation holes (air holes).Typically, these holes is not enough, moreover, besides, the owners often silenced them for the winter, "so as not to muzzle," which absolutely can not do.In addition to the ventilation holes in the foundation is not excessive and ventilation pipe leading from the basement to the roof.Then ventilation will go much more intense and the air in the cellar will be dry.



If there is ventilated underground in the winter to exclude ingress of cold air into the living room.To do this, you must insulate the floor, placing between the wooden beams layer of fiberglass insulation URSA M-11 (or URSA Light) 100 mm thick.On top of the layer insulation film to put paroizolyatsonnuyu - to humid heat of the dwelling did not fall into the cellar and not watered insulation and foundation.

In the event that underground space you have not aired (no air holes), on the walls of the basement will begin to accumulate moisture, which can lead to the formation of mold.I must say that the ventilation in the underground space should be optional - in one form or another.Even if the air holes on the perimeter of the foundation are not available, the question of ventilation can be solved by the withdrawal of the pipe from underground in the roof level.In case of insufficient ventilation, to avoid moisture accumulation on the walls of the basement walls should be additionally insulate from the inside.

For warming plates can be used URSA XPS, which are resistant to moisture, temperature extremes and do not rot.Recommended thickness plates URSA XPS - not less than 50 mm.In addition, this option is warming allows you to create a dry and frost-underground, where you safely can store their crops even in the most severe frosts.

In both cases - at warming the floor and basement walls with insulation all the work you can do yourself, spending a couple of weekends and 6,000 rubles on materials.

And finally.Typically, the walls of country houses flooded with various unnecessary boards, wood, slate etc., sometimes it even nailed sheets of iron, trying to further protect the house from the rain.As a result, the walls are no longer ventilated and very quickly rot.Remember that the walls should always be "open."We hope that the observance of these simple rules will help you get rid of mold and extend the life of your home
