Mold Remediation Mistakes #3 – Applying Mold Cleaner Properly

So you have proper containment setup and you are controlling the humidity with a dehumidifier. Now you need to decide what type of mold disinfectant to use and how to apply it. If you are removing mold from inside your living space make sure all Sheetrock that has visible signs of mold or water damage are removed but before you do that, fog it with a really good disinfectant to help reduce mold spores from spreading.

Anabec Mold Cleaner

We have used the Anabec Mold Cleaner for many years during our crawl space encapsulation process. It is peroxide based and not EPA registered which in a nutshell means it is a more green product. Not that you shouldn't wear proper PPE when applying because peroxide can be dangerous. Anabec is a great company located in New York and they are on the cutting edge of mold disinfectants, protectants and odor removal.

From the Anabec Website:

The Advanced Cleaning Solution has been applied to thousands of institutions, homes and industrial facilities for both microbial staining and general cleaning applications. When coupled with mechanical action for maximum material penetration, this clear formula removes/reduces staining from mold, mildew, dirt, soil and other organic debris. The product leaves an extremely clean surface that can then be treated with a disinfectant and/or moisture barrier product such as Anasphere Plus or X70, respectively. It is appropriate to apply The Advanced Cleaning Solution to both porous and non-porous building materials including, but not limited to: structural framing, cement, block and unfinished drywall. It is also suitable for many interior finished materials, such as; carpeting, upholstery, ceiling tiles, wood, brick, finished drywall and other related materials.

    Hey Michael, Thank you for all your videos. I sure wish you all worked in my area of Tennessee. I’m really having trouble finding someone to work on my crawlspace that I can trust to do the job right. I am not able to DIY because of health issues, not unrelated to my air quality, and have actually had to move out of my house temporarily because of the musty, moldy, smell. I have contacted companies that will spray the mold and others that will just encapsulate but no one company wants to take the mold out of the crawlspace. The ones who will spray use Timbor or Boracare. Are these products going to get rid of the fungus and mold? I need help! Please let me know if you have any suggestions or recommendations.

      I am researching Boracare and Timbor but from what I have seen they are for wood rot fungus only. I will let you know what I find.

    Does Anabec kill wood rotting fungus?

    • Michael Church on June 14, 2021 at 12:01 pm

      Hello Dan, With proper mold remediation protocols followed, Anabec products address all types of fungus including wood rot. There are limits if the inside of the wood has lost structural integrity or the fungus is deep inside where Anabec cannot reach, it will not be effective. In that instance, remove/replace is probably the best option. Thank you and home that helps.
