Developer Gail Byrne has become the first developer in St. Petersburg to incorporate mold prevention technology into the construction phase of a new 15 unit condominium development located in Treasure Island Florida.

As decisive as the upcoming presidential election, so is the issue of toxic mold. For every one person who feels that mold is harmful to your health, there is at least one person who says that it causes no adverse health effects. Whatever side of the issue you believe, mold still causes billions of dollars in property damage every year. Insurance companies are now limiting coverage or excluding mold coverage completely, leaving the homeowner responsible for the cost of mold removal.

Gail Byrne & Associates, a developer based in Treasure Island Florida, just outside of St. Petersburg, has become one of the first developers to incorporate a new mold prevention technology into its construction process. Before the drywall and insulation is installed, a company named Enclean, applies a new product to the surfaces of the buildings interior. The process alters the surface and does not allow mold the ability to grow if a water leak were to occur. In speaking with Jon Covington of Enclean, he says that the Enclean process is so effective that Enclean offers a 10 year warranty against the growth of mold.Even if a home were to be flooded, Enclean will stand behind there warranty.
