    Q
    Would the BoraCare with Mold Care protect the 2x6 in my construction project that has been delayed since December 2015, and permanently stop any further mold growth going forward?
    Ran into a lengthy construction Delay the walls have been exposed since December 2015 we now are getting ready to get the project started back I only see one 2 x 6 that has signs of mold is this product recommended for this type of application also am I clear that this product remains in the wood permanently therefore it would stop any other mold growth
    A

    Yes, BORACARE with MOLD-CARE is a great product that will take care of the current mold that you have, and prevent any future mold from growing as well. Please be aware that while BoraCare with MoldCare it will not take care of any stains that may be left from the mold. To get rid of the actual mark or stain on the wood, you need to apply Mold-Clean to the area. Mold-Clean should be applied first, and then you should treat the area with BoraCare with MoldCare to make sure the actual mold in the wood is neutralized.

    It is also extremely important to eliminiate any excess moisture or humidity issues that may cause future mold or fungus problems. You will not be able to prevent mold growth if there are uncorrected moisture issues.

    Q
    Can Bora-Care with Mold-Care be used on concrete and soil?
    I have a crawlspace that has mold growing on the dirt floor and on the concrete walls. Will this product work for those areas? If not, what will?

    Q
    What respirator is approved for using with both BoraCare and BoraCare w/Mold Care products?
    We would be using both of the products BoraCare and BoraMold and applying by pump sprayer.
    A
    Any respirator will work when applying either version of Boracare. We normally recommend if spraying in tight areas where there is little fresh air flow, to use our Comfo Classic Professional Respirator with cartridges. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Q
    Can I use Baracare with MoldCare in the same room as the water heater with a pilot light?
    I am treating the ceiling of the basement. There are 2 water heaters in the room - one for each tenant. It would be convenient if I did not have to disrupt their hot water. Are there flammable vapors with this product?
    A
    BoraCare with Mold-Care is sprayed or painted directly onto the wood you are needing to treat and there are no flammable vapors that are emited while applying.  You would just not want to use or store near an open flame.  It is always best to fully read the product label for complete instructions.

  • Asked by Oliver from Singapore

    Q
    I am intending to install some new cabinets in my new house. I am worried of termites and also mold.
    There is sign of termites infestation in some old cupboards which I had discarded recently. Other than that, I did not find any traces of termites elsewhere in the house. As I am worried about both termites and mold, can I apply one coat of Boracare for the new cabinets followed by one coat of Boracare with mold care? This is because I am worried that Boracare with mold care alone may not be sufficient/strong enough to prevent the termites (which previously are present in the house) from attacking the new cabinets.
    A
    According to the manufacturer you can apply a coat of the Boracare followed by a coat of the Boracare with Moldcare. We hope this information is helpful!

    Q
    If I have sprayed my wood with another product but now want to use BORACARE with MOLD-CARE, do I need to clean it first?
    My home recently flooded and I was told to spray with a bio activator to get rid of the smell. Now my contractor wants me to use this product to treat the studs before installing the dry wall. Do I need to clean the studs before I do so or can this product go over the other one I've used?
    A

    We are not familiar with any bio activator products to know if they should be cleaned off the surface so be sure to refer the product label for those instructions but as long as the wood has dried after applying the other product, you can apply the BORACARE with MOLD-CARE.

    Q
    Does Boracare with Mold-Care also kill decay fungi including white rot, brown rot, and wet rots?
    My pest control company uses Timbor to treat crawlspaces for mold. However, after doing some research I see that Timbor does not kill and prevent mold. So I'm wondering if Boracare w/Mold-Care kills mold AND everything Timbor kills (such as decay fungi including white rot, brown rot, and wet rot). I need a compound that kills it all (just to be safe)! Thanks for your time.
    A
    Yes, BoraCare with Mold-Care will kill existing mold and prevent future mold growth, but it will not remove the black stains caused by mold and fungus.  To remove the actual stains from mold and fungus, you should apply Mold-Clean before applying the BoraCare with Mold-Care.  Let us know if you have any further questions!

  • Asked by Ivy from Clinton
    01/17/2018
    Q
    How do I know if Bora-Care with Mold-Care killed the fungus growing on the flooring joists in my crawlspace?
    A

    Bora-Care with Mold-Care absorbs into the wood and remains there for as long as the wood is in service. This provides years of residual protection if used as directed on the product label for mold fungi, decay fungi and stain fungi. It is important to reduce moisture, address any leaks or water damage/sources and have proper ventilation in crawlspaces. Crawl spaces that are not ventilated properly (or AC systems that are below the dew point), will cause condensation, and eventually mold/fungus to occur.

    Q
    Once BORACARE with MOLD-CARE is mixed, how long can it be kept?

    Be sure to use any diluted BORACARE with MOLD-CARE solution within 24 hours of mixing. The shelf life in the original bottle if kept in a cool dry area is 3 years.
