Dupont Tyvek Can Prevent Mold Remediation in Your Home

November 15, 2017

Dupont Tyvek can prevent Mold  Remediation in your home when properly installed behind siding. Thats because a superior air and water barrier is an integral part of a home that’s built for lasting comfort and energy efficiency. DuPont Tyvek HomeWrap helps control airflow through walls, while holding out bulk water, and allowing moisture vapor to escape.

Tyvek is a miracle of modern home-building science because it prevents water from entering the house during rain, snow, sleet & hale, but allows water vapor in the air to exit.  As we live in our home we put water into the air.  We create water vapor, or humidity, whenever we breathe, have pets and plants, cook, take showers or dry our clothes we put water into the air. That air needs to excape our home or we will have mold & mildew. During the winter the humid air wants to escape to the outdoors through our walls. If the walls are covered with an impermeable covering, such as stucco or stone we will trap the water vapor in the wall and mold & mildew will form.
