ARMSTRONG’S BIOBLOCK® FIGHTS PRESENCE OF MOLD AND MILDEW IN BASEMENT ENVIRONMENTS
LANCASTER, Pa (August 20, 2008) — For those wanting to utilize basement spaces in their current homes, Armstrong Residential Ceilings is introducing one way to help protect homeowners from the harmful effects of odor- and stain-causing mold and mildew. Armstrong is now applying BioBlock, an anti-microbial treatment, to its popular 1201 and 1205 Raised Panel HomeStyle® ceiling products. Both 1201 and 1205 Raised Panel products offer great ceiling design options and easy access to home systems located above.
FIGHTS SOME MOLD & MILDEW
“Residential spaces with moisture issues, specifically basement areas with little or no ventilation, need extra special treatment,” said Lori Rowley, associate marketing manager – residential ceilings products. “Adding BioBlock to our 1201 and 1205 Raised Panel HomeStyle ceiling panels is a logical evolution for the HomeStyle line, as we were able to address the issues of mold and other bacteria without sacrificing the architectural detail of the panels.”
HIGH DESIGN AESTHETIC
Ranging from $2.10 to $2.50 per square foot, the 1201 and 1205 Raised Panel ceiling panels are available at most home and building supply centers.
