The Biggest Dangers Traditional Mending Agents Present

When walls crack or paint bubbles, it's tempting to reach for the first mending agent you see. It feels like acting with haste will translate to a quick solve of the problem. Not so. 

The vast majority of mending agents on the market actually put you at more immediate and long-term risk than you think. 

And those risk factors take a number of noteworthy forms. The time and money you invest in fixing a problem might be wasted when the solution doesn't hold. The efficacy of a product might be called into question when its inability to weather the elements leaves you open to more severe damage. And, most worrying, a mending agent's list of ingredients might be a serious danger to your health. 

Through careful consideration of the options out there, you'll quickly discover that SafeMend™ is the only product on the market posing zero of those risks. But before we lay that out, it's important to highlight the three biggest dangers other mending agents present — so you know exactly what you're avoiding and why.

1. They Release Harmful Toxins Into the Air

We've said it before , and we'll say it again. Standard wall mending agents contain a plethora of harmful toxins that pose immediate and long-term health risks. Commonly-found mending agent chemicals like ethyl acetate, xylene, and formaldehyde can cause irritation to the eyes and throat, nausea, headache, dizziness, anemia, and life-long respiratory issues from mere inhalation.

When you're tackling wall projects, particularly in confined indoor spaces, there are no two ways about it: you're breathing these toxins in.

2.  They Leave You at Risk for Mold 

A lot of the standard mending agents on the market are not waterproof, which means they become breeding grounds for dangerous mold . Even if you do find other mending agents purporting to be 100% waterproof, they tend to shrink a lot over the drying process — meaning air pockets will begin to emerge in cracks you once filled. Whether they appear in an exterior wall with exposure to rain and snow, a bathroom wall prone to settled moisture, or another part of the house where there's an undiagnosed leak, these gaps in your drywall provide an ideal environment for mold to take over. 

It puts your family at risk of nasal and eye irritation, wheezing and coughing, fever, shortness of breath, and chronic headaches. And it puts your home at risk of exorbitantly expensive structural damage.

3. They Force You to Re-do the Same Work Again and Again

The common shrinkage of most standard mending agents doesn't only create a dangerous environment for airborne mold contaminants. It also means that, if you'd like to avoid the obvious eye sore and less-obvious health risks of re-cracked walls, you'll need to re-do the very same repair job. You'll have to spend more money and more of your free time. And in the process of re-applying the agent, you'll be exposing your loved ones to the release of harmful, health-compromising toxins all over again. 

At first glance, the inefficacy is an inconvenience. Upon further inspection, it's a mending agent shortcoming with potentially grave consequences.

Now let's get to some good news. While these three major dangers are incredibly common, you don't have to accept a single one.
