Armstrong Ceilings Help Reduce the Risk of Basement Mold

The right ceiling can resist the spread of basement mold and mildew.

In basements, moisture issues are created when porous concrete floors and block walls absorb water from the surrounding soil. If there is little or no ventilation to control humidity, a basement will become a cool, damp environment and the perfect place for mold and mildew to thrive. When converting your basement into a living space, choose products specifically designed to reduce the risk of basement mold.

Armstrong offers many ceiling products that are specially treated with BioBlock®, an additive that resists the growth of mold, mildew and odor and stain-causing bacteria on the treated surface.

Armstrong ceiling products that inhibit basement mold

Easy Elegance™ Coffered Ceiling Panels are a beautiful, affordable way to bring the dramatic look of a custom, coffered ceiling to your basement, while resisting mold and mildew. A weekend project you can do yourself, Easy Elegance panels come in two lightweight styles and two colors that that easily fit into a standard suspension system.

In basements where natural light is scarce, Metallaire™ pressed metal ceiling tiles can illuminate your space by bouncing light around the room. Metallaire panels come in 12 beautiful patterns and four metal finishes, plus paintable white. These real metal panels won’t rust and are resistant to basement mold and mildew.

HomeStyle® High Performance Ceiling Panels for suspended ceilings come in a variety of 2 ft. x 2 ft. styles and provide a unique look for any room. Sag, mold, mildew and bacteria-resistant, they are ideal where humidity is present and basement mold may be a concern.

The following ceiling products are treated with Armstrong’s anti-microbial BioBlock® to stop the spread of basement mold and mildew:

  • 922 Fine Fissured, 928 Fine Fissured and 932 Fine Fissured
  • 1728BL Fine Fissured Black
  • 271 Sahara™ and 273 Sahara™ and 276 Sahara
  • 241 SuperTuff
  • 954 Classic Fine Textured

With BioBlock, these ceilings are warranted to be free from the growth of mold, odor and stain-causing bacteria.

The right ceiling will guard against basement mold and mildew, providing a more relaxed living space for you and your family to enjoy.
