How long does it take Bora-Care to penetrate wood? I know it depends on thickness, but in general how long?

I sprayed Bora-Care under the garage. I now have mold, so I know it did not dry enough. I need to treat under house, and I want to dry it with fans. I want to get the mold growth, but I do not want to interfere with penetration of Bora-Care. How long should I wait before trying to dry it out? Bora-Care with Mold Care is too toxic for me to want to use.


Just so you know, Bora-Care will not kill, treat, or prevent mold growth. It only works for fungus or wood destroying insects, not mold.  Only Bora-Care with Mold Care will treat and kill and prevent mold.  Bora-Care will take at least 30 days usually to diffuse through the entire piece of wood.  This of course depends on the thickness and moisture content of the wood.  The outer layer though usually dries within 24 hours or at least is OK after 24 hours to treat again or apply a stain or sealant to the wood.
