Mold and mildew can appear in areas of your home wherever moisture is present, and ventilation is limited. Basements and bathrooms are especially susceptible to mold and mildew growth. Specially-treated moisture resistant ceilings not only stop the spread of mold and mildew, but can also inhibit the growth of mold, odor, and stain-causing bacteria on the treated surface.
There's only one thing worse than a damaged or stained ceiling: a saggy, damaged or stained drop ceiling. In areas of high humidity, it's important to choose a moisture resistant ceiling tile that will remain flat. Some ceilings are safe to use in non climate-controlled or high humidity spaces, which means they will stand up to common basement conditions.
