Mildew & mould love boats, but boat owners loath them. Using proven technology from the food processing and health industries, BoatFresh offers a 21st century solution - killing them! BoatFresh UVC will kill airborne bacteria and moulds such Cladosporium (most common indoor and outdoor mould), Stachybotrys and Aspergillus (black moulds), and many, many more.
BoatFresh should be installed in an area of good airflow and each unit is capable of treating 25m3 of space - typically, use one unit for each 5m of boat length. Whilst BoatFresh works best when used in conjunction with dehumidifiers, ensuring good airflow is equally important so keep the cabin doors open!
What causes mildew and mould?
Mildew and mould are fungi which are present everywhere in the biosphere. They thrive in humid conditions and reproduce by ‘seeds’, called spores, which travel through the air. The spores attach to surfaces and given the right conditions they grow and start to produce new spores. Large colonies of fungi then become noticeable as black stains. The spreading and growth of mildew and mould can be reduced by controlling the environment, so using a good dehumidifier is recommended, but this doesn’t kill airborne spores! BoatFresh treats the air in the closed space of the boat and kills airborne spores and bacteria.
‘As a Chartered Engineer & co-owner of JenAct Ltd I have been involved in many aspects of the food processing industry for more than 20 years. As an owner of classic cars and boats I have battled mould for many years. Now, I am trying to bring accepted technology from my day job to my main interests. I have benefited massively from using BoatFresh and MotorSan and I hope you do as well.’
