Gold 4 Mold is the next generation of mold stain remover product. Mold stain removal is particularly important for attics and crawlspaces because the post-remediation inspector wants to see more than an area where the mold has been killed. The inspector wants to see the black mold stains have been removed or covered by paint. Currently, the best-known mold stain removal products are RMR, On and Gone, ZEP, or other similar bleaching products.
Here’s the best news, Gold 4 Mold is the most affordable mold stain remover product yet. With no loss of effective bleaching power, Gold 4 Mold is priced at less than $20, while the other mold stain remover products are $35 to $55 per gallon. If you are in the mold treatment business, this means more than half the price for a superior product.
Everyone in the mold remediation business knows that killing the mold is only the first stage of mold remediation. But even dead mold areas show signs of decay. Mold lives on cellulose that is found in wood, paper, cardboard, and composite wood material. If the mold is not properly remediated, the mold will literally turn wood into sawdust. This is why any mold problem needs to be treated immediately. Mold never gets better, and it will always get worse.
For all the mold novices out there, mold only happens when there are a few conditions. The first is a water source, the second is cellulose as food, and a dark area in some areas of the house. A professional will always locate and fix the water source first. Then, they will remove damaged material. In attics and crawlspaces, the mold should be treated before the wood is compromised. So, the process requires a spray process to kill the mold. We suggest a pump sprayer using one 20-gram tablet per gallon to kill the mold. This will lighten the mold stain but not fully remove the dark color.
There is an option once the mold has been killed with CD Plus. That is getting rid of the mold stains. This isn’t absolutely necessary as long as the water issue is resolved and the mold has been treated. At that point, the mold will not return unless the water problem returns.
Inside the house, mold-stained wood isn’t a big issue. The drywall will be replaced and there is no visual concern because the mold has been fully treated. Yes, you can use Gold 4 Mold to get rid of dark mold stains anywhere, but the common areas for mold stain removal are attics and crawlspace.
Applying Gold 4 Mold is very simple. Use a pumpsprayer that has enough power to hit those hard-to-reach areas. In the two-step method, we first use the pump sprayer with the CD Plus solution to kill the mold followed by a second treatment of Gold 4 Mold. The CD Plus treatment prepares the area and the Gold 4 Mold finishes the job. For very bad jobs, use the two-step method.
For normal mold stain removal, the remediator can use the one-pass pump spray application of Gold 4 Mold will be enough. Both the CD Plus and Gold 4 Mold application will require adequate PPE as the treatment has potential risks of exposure.
