Shrink Wrapping Can Create Mold, Mildew & Rust!

Shrink Wrapping Your Boat Can Create Mold, Mildew & Rust!When the boating season ends, boats are abruptly removed and then winterized. The process typically includes an acid wash, fluid changes, shrink wrapping and storage inside barns, industrial buildings or out in boatyards.

Boats are shrink wrapped as a way to weatherize vessels during the off-season. As part of the process, shrink wrap covers are typically ventilated to assist moisture problems that potentially lead to mold, mildew and rust but as any many boaters have found out, boat wrapping doesn’t guarantee that these dangers won’t present themselves between then and now.  

Mold Loves Moisture

When it comes to moisture, boats get hammered bad. During the summer they float on water, are often covered and exposed to the weather elements that fluctuate in temperatures.  If a vessel has a cabin, then wet bodies and items such as beach towels, bathing suits and boating equipment bring additional moisture inside. Very often still damp from the summer fun, marine vessels are abruptly removed, wrapped and unfortunately stored wet.

Shrink wrapping creates a versatile waterproof barrier that stands up to the environmental conditions, but anytime an object is wrapped with an impermeable poly barrier, it will sweat or create condensation and trap-in existing moisture. Just put your sandwich inside a zip-lock bag  and place it outside! This scenario creates the perfect breeding environment for mold, mildew and rust!

Do You Desiccant?

Moisture is a natural enemy to marine cabins and compartments but if you do not incorporate a desiccant, you will most likely have grave consequences! We’ve heard of contractors and service shops that think of creative ways to absorb moisture that include cutting up and filling plastic jugs with bulk absorbers but we have a simple, safe, easy and affordable solution to protecting marine cabins!
