I'm moving soon to a new two-story house, built from concrete and AAC blocks (Autoclaved aerated concrete). The walls have an acrylic paint over them. I'm planning on installing a wall closet in the master bedroom (on the second floor) that will sit in a niche 60 cm deep and accommodate the entire closet. This will cause the closet to be flush with the walls, from floor to ceiling.
The wall behind the closet is an indoor wall, with the stairs on the other side. The ceiling is below the roof, which has a terracotta tiles covering with a crawlspace.
I'm worried about mold developing between the closet and the walls/ceiling behind it. The two solutions I've read about are:
- Mildewcide paint - it seems that the mildewcide will eventually "run out", leaving the wall open for mold.
- BioRid by Kefa - it looks like the only alternative, claiming to provide a permanent solution.
Does anyone have any long-term experience on either solution? Will Mildewcide paint be enough for a years long protection? Is this BioRid living up to the promises? Are there any other options available for preventing mold to grow behind the closet?
Edit: Currently there is no mold problem - this is a new house. But after tearing off a 15 years old closet in our current (30 years old) apartment and seeing the walls black with mold got me concerned. In addition, the weather here is very moist all year round, so it might be a problem in the future, and preventing a problem from occurring is better to handle it once started, no? Or am I being too paranoid?
