Mold grows by sending out spores as well as by rooting itself to the surface it is growing on. While the above process will have removed the spores and surface material we still need to kill those mold roots to keep the mold from returning. MoldStat Plus is excellent for this purpose and if you haven’t already used it for the initial cleaning, now is the time to measure and dilute the super-concentrate to the working solution strength. A little bit of this product goes a long way. Thoroughly soak the surface where the mold was located and allow the product to dry naturally over a few hours. The MoldStat Plus will sink into the material, reaching and killing the mold roots that may yet remain. Remember that MoldStat Plus contains no bleach or bleaching agents so it won’t remove mold stains or residue, unless you scrub it, but it will kill mold of any type on contact. Once the cleaned area has dried you are done with the cleanup of your mold issue. However, there are two additional steps you might choose to take depending on your situation.
MoldStat Plus is sold as a concentrate that the customer must dilute with water to create the solution strength to clean items. The bulk of any such solution will be water so the item to be cleaned must be able to withstand contact with water. It isn’t necessary to soak items in a MoldStat solution to clean the mold, so you could use just a light wiping with a heavily wrung out cloth or sponge to clean many items.
Fortunately for Tony, and for anyone else confronting a similar situation, MoldStat Plus DOES NOT REQUIRE wiping or other physical agitation to be 100% effective at killing mold on wall board or other surfaces!
