    Q
    Are there issues with using BORACARE with MOLD-CARE on pressure-treated lumber?
    Are there any issues with using BORACARE with MOLD-CARE on the pressure-treated framing of a deck? We have a mystery mold problem on our deck, which sits in full sun and even with repeated cleaning and re-staining with Behr Deck Stain, which supposedly has mold-preventative properties. We are removing all of the deck boards and railings but need to clean and treat the framing before we replace the decking and railing with PVC. I see from other questions that this product is fine for use outdoors and on wood, but I am worried that all of the other chemicals in the pressure treated wood would prevent absorption. If this works, the plan is to clean with Mold Clean, and then treat with BORACARE with MOLD-CARE.
    A
    Boracare with Moldcare is not labeled for use on pressure treated wood because it cannot penetrate into the wood. We recommend you contact Nisus, the manufacturer, to see if the product may help in your situation. You can reach Nisus by calling 800-264-0870.

    Q
    What are the Bora-Care with Mold-Care treatment and occupancy requirements?
    How long after treating a well ventilated area with Bora Care / Mold Care should I wait before occupying the area? I'll be treating my house after 6" of flooding. I've removed 24" to 30" of drywall and insulation and will treat the exposed 2x4 studs and sole plates. Also treated will be carpet tack strips adjacent to some walls. Am I correct to assume these wooden strips will benefit from the treatment?
    A

    When using Bora-Care with Mold-Care you would need to give it a minumim of about 6 hours or until the product dries on the wood for re-entry for occupancy. Also, this would treat the wooden carpet tack strips as well. Keep in mind that Bora-Care has a glycol base which can have an odor if it is in an enclosed area, so we do recommend it be well ventilated before re-entry as well.

    How would Bora-Care with Mold-Care hold up when applied to raw wood that will be in direct contact with the ground?
    We're building swing sets and want to use this instead of pressure-treated wood.
    A

    Once applied and allowed to dry,Bora-Care with Mold-Care will last for the lifetime of the wood, indoors or outdoors. It will not breakdown over time.

    Q
    Does Bora-Care with Mold-Care need to be scrubbed or wiped down?
    Hi, I am trying to kill and prevent a substantial amount of mold from a garage. The framing, walls, and ceilings all have mold on them. Do I need to scrub or wipe the walls after applying it or just let it dry? Should I also spray more than once? The whole structure is bare wood. Can send pictures if it is helpful. Thanks, Jason
    A

    Scrubbing the mold on the walls is not required for BoraCare with Mold-Care to be effective however it will not remove any stains from mold or mildew. If you prefer 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 Bora-Care with Mold Care to make sure the actual mold in the wood is neutralized.

    Q
    Does Bora-Care with Mold-Care have an bleach odor?
    I have had my crawl space treated for mold . The were supposed to use bora care but it smelt like bleach. Is there a way to tell if the wood was treated with bora care with mold care. Thanks
    A

    Bora-Care with Mold-Care does not smell like bleach. The only way to tell if it was treated with the product is to confirm with the company that made the application (or if they used a dye indicator at the time of application-would notice on the wood surface).

    Q
    What are best ways to clean or get rid of the drips of excess Bora Care with Mold Care?
    Inexperienced person sprayed on the Bora Care with Mold Care. Ending with several drips on the siding. Also some areas too heavy. What are best ways to clean or get rid of the drips. I am finishing the siding with an on oil stain.
    A

    If you have applied Bora-Care with Mold-Care to the point of runoff with dripping to the ground, the excess runoff should be wiped up with a damp cloth with warm, soapy water.  If it is a few drops that are contained on the wood, that will eventually absorb into the wood and still create a smooth, even surface.

    Q
    How long should Bora-Care with Mold-Care be left on a raw timber before planing and sanding?
    Our walnut timber is raw/untreated and is being used for shelving. We want to know how long to leave the product on before planing or sanding the wood.
    A

    You typically want to plane/sand before applying Bora-Care with Mold-Care, as doing so after would be removing layers of protection, but as long as the wood has dried, you can plane/sand and finish the wood.  It usually takes 24-72 hours to dry fully.

  • Asked by Dolores from East Ellijay
    02/18/2021
    Q
    Can Bora-Care with Mold-Care be sprayed on foam board to prevent insect and mold on foam and plastic?
    Should this be sprayed on concrete foundation and wood beams before or after installing foam board on foundation walls and plastic on floor.
    A

    Boracare with Mold-Care can only be applied to raw natural wood that has no finish on it, or to concrete area such as along the foundation where structural supports and framing will go. Boracare with Mold Care would not adhere to or work on foam or plastic, or any other material similar to that. Mold will only grow where there is a moisture problem, as long as there are no leaks or issues causing excess moisture to collect and stay in the walls you shouldn't have an issue with mold. Installing good vapor barriers and dehumidifiers can assist with preventing this as well.

    Bora-Care with Mold-Care can be applied in any temperature as long as it is not below freezing. However, the warmer the temperature the easier it will be to mix and apply the product because of its thick consistency.

    Q
    Will the overspray from this product stain the concrete slab? Is there any clean-up necessary on concrete?
    A
    Boracare with Mold Care should not produce a signifacnt amount of overspray if applied following the label insturctions and will not stain any concrete should the product happen to get on it.  Boracare with Mold Care is not to be rinsed off into any sewer systems without previously notifying the local sewage treatment plant authority. For guidance contact your state water board or Regional Office of the EPA.  If your application is in an enclosed area, it is recommended by the manufacturer to use a Professional Pesticide Application Safety kit.
