Choosing and installing the right kind of grow room wall material

19 January, 2023

Growing cannabis requires a separate and climate-controlled space. Did you turn your basement into a grow room? It is a private space where you can grow cannabis in a healthy environment. Basements or garages are cooler areas where controlling the temperature is easier. You need to install adequate grow room wall materials to have a perfect condition for cannabis growth.

Dealing with moisture inside grow rooms

 There must be some amount of moisture inside the grow room. Excess humidity can directly affect the plants and zero moisture would do the same. Less than 70% humidity should prevail and anything more than that should be driven out by adequate ventilation, dehumidification, and other processes. Humidity, if not taken care of, can damage the walls and the ceiling. If this continues, there can be prolonged damage which can be severe. Get the walls repaired and immediately install the basement wall panels for complete safety. PVC sheets are 100% water-resistant and have an antibacterial covering on the surface of the panels. They resist the growth of mold and mildew on the surface of the panels.

Light inside your grow room

The cannabis plants have different stages of growth so watching and nurturing them requires a lot of patience. We all know that light is important for the growth of plants. Grow rooms are usually located in the basement where sunlight cannot reach. Therefore, artificial light is required for the growth of the plants. Cannabis requires different amounts of light during their growth stages. The requirements of light in the vegetative state differ from that of the flowering stage. The plants are kept in separate compartments during their stages. There can be a small room to house plants during vegetative state but the flowering stage needs to be four times bigger. Scanty light is not very useful and excessive light can also destroy the right kind of growth. Regulate the distribution of light property so that there is healthy growth. There are three types of lights used like CFL, HID and LED. Several grow lamps are used to generate a huge bill. You can only keep the bill low but installing PVC grow room wall material. Vinyl sheets are light-reflective so installing fewer lights is sufficient.

Installing Basement wall panels

There is nothing easier than installing PVC panels. Your basement will be ready in less than a day. It takes 7 to 8 hours for a contractor to install the basement wall panels. The panels are fixed to the studs with fasteners. There is no need for installing backers because the panels are attached to the surface of the walls with screws. This prevents moisture from invading the walls and ceiling. The panels have grooves and tongues in the form of interlock for easier installation. There is no spending additional money in labor costs and material costs due to the installation.

PVC panels do not attract mold or bacteria

A grow room should be maintained and hygienic. This is an important criterion because the growth depends on the hygiene factor. Clean your basement well before you even start bringing in the plants. Once the plants are inside the grow room, they space needs to be free from mold and bacteria. There should be an area for the crops and a separate space for storing the tools, gears, and equipment. Duramax’s basement wall panels are easy to clean and need no severe maintenance. The boards have smooth, glossy surfaces that do not attract bacteria or other microorganisms. The panels also do not attract dirt or impurities on its surface.

Simple cleaning and maintenance

The panels can be cleaned with a moist cloth and a soft cleaning agent. Do not use acids, bleaches, or abrasives as those might hurt the panels as well as the plants. Do you want to wash the grow room walls? We know that you won’t do that frequently. Washing is no hassle because the panels do not seep moisture into the walls or ceiling. Customers who have installed FRP panels are aware of the tedious cleaning process. Vinyl panels require very low maintenance so people choose to install them over any other wall or ceiling covering materials.

The importance of chemical-resistant panels

You should also remember that the cannabis needs airflow to grow. There should be sufficient ventilation inside the grow spaces. Cannabis cultivation requires a chemical-resistant and hygienic environment for growth. Therefore, you need to install Duramax’s chemical-resistant panels. The panels do not react upon encountering any chemical agent. There could be spillage of fertilizers, manure, or any other agent. PVC sheets are extremely versatile.
