What is mould-resistant plasterboard?
Regular plasterboard contains some amount of moisture, but not enough to outright cause problems with mould. To reach that point, it needs to get wet, though not very much, for mould to colonise and spread, often through the paper coating. By comparison, mould-resistant drywall is paper-free, to keep mould from having a place it can get a foothold. It also is more resistant to moisture, though it’s not fully waterproof, so it soaks up less moisture, making a less habitable environment for mould and mildew.
Where should I use it?
Mould resistant plasterboard should be using in places were mould may be a problem, for example bathrooms, garages, kitchens, basements. Other areas may be places were moisture could also form such as, laundries and powder rooms.
