Product Overview

This product does not treat or prevent mold.  It is meant to remove the stains caused by mold and mildew.  This product should be applied to remove the stains caused by mold first, and then you should apply Bora-Care with Mold Care to actually treat the existing mold and prevent future mold growth.  

Mold-Clean is the perfect cleaner to apply to remove mold and mildew stains, especially before a Bora-Care application. Mold-Clean will not prevent mold, but will remove staining and discoloration.

  • Eliminates mold and mildew stains.
  • Cleans and brightens weathered wood.
  • Ready-to-use.
  • Pleasantly scented.
  • Contains special wetting agents and detergents.
  • Penetrates deep into wood pores for thorough stain removal, which bleach cannot do.
  • Minimizes or eliminates scrubbing.
  • Perfect for water damage on all building materials.

Details

Mold-Clean presents a totally new revenue stream for your company.
5 times more effective than bleach alone. Spray it on. And clean up.

Many builders face mold problems in their structures. As lumber sits outside exposed to the moisture, mold begins to grow. The builders know from experience that once the house is dried-in, the mold will disappear. However, homeowners get very upset when they see mold growing on the lumber of their new home.

Mold-Clean is the solution to remove those unsightly stains. Your technicians can keep the lumber in an entire subdivision clean with minimal effort. Mold-Clean is not a pesticide, so it can also be sold to builders for their application.

Mold-Clean At A Glance

  • Can be sold directly to builders
  • Easy to apply
  • Professional grade stain remover
  • Eliminates mold and mildew stains
  • Cleans and brightens weathered wood
  • Ready-to-use
  • Pleasantly scented
  • Contains special wetting agents and detergents
  • Penetrates deep into wood pores for thorough stain removal
  • Minimizes or eliminates scrubbing
  • Perfect for decks and fences

Remember, Mold-Clean is a stain remover only and will not kill mold spores. Should both jobs be required, use Mold-Clean to remove the stain and then apply Bora-Care with Mold-Care to kill and prevent mold.


A fact you should know: Neither cleaning or eliminating mold will stop it from reoccurring if conditions remain conducive for growth. The enemy is moisture. Permanently solving mold problems will require fixing and maintaining moisture levels in the home.

Mold clean treatment

A Closer Look

Can be sold directly to builders

If you work with builders, Mold-Clean offers you a chance for additional revenue. Apply the product for the builder, or teach builders how to apply it and sell them Mold-Clean packaged in 1 gallon bottles. Mold-Clean creates an easy and continuous sale.

Easy to apply

Mold-Clean can be applied directly to an affected area of a wall or any other surface with a sprayer, sponge or damp cloth to thoroughly remove mildew discoloration and stains. Follow all label directions.

Professional grade stain remover

It is the most powerful mold discoloration remover and surface conditioner available. In fact, Mold Clean is five times more effective than bleach alone. It is the only product you need to truly clean a mold stained area with out the intense smell of bleach.

The Science Behind Mold-Clean

Mold-Clean is a cost-effective unique technology that combines a strong oxidizing agent for color stain removal with a high pH tolerant surfactant to help wet surfaces and penetrate wood as an anti-corrosive stabilizer.

In the past, people have tried to use bleach, but its EPA label does not allow this use, it is not good at wetting surfaces and it leaves behind sodium hydroxide, which is very corrosive to metal fixtures and fittings and can damage wood. EPA also does not recommend bleach, but suggests a surfactant or detergent for cleaning mold.

Mold-Clean is the answer and combines all the appropriate properties.

Storm and Water Damage Steps

STEP 1: Remove all wet and unsalvageable building material from the site.

STEP 2: Completely dry the remaining affected areas.

STEP 3: Spray Mold-Clean according to the label application directions on affected material. Reapply and brush if needed to remove stubborn stains.

    Mold-Clean is household bleach

    By Woodrow on 10/13/2011

    The one and only ingredient of Mold-Clean is 5% sodium hypochlorite. The one and only ingredient of household or laundry bleach is 3 to 6% sodium hypochlorite, and you can easily get stronger solutions.

    Bleach was better!

    Used the mold-clean to remove mold stains on wood in attic. It did nothing. Sprayed bleach on and the wood looks like new.

    Not what I thought

    By Jon on 07/26/2014

    Verified Purchase

    I wanted to use this product along with bora care with mold care for a crawlspace . I wasn't aware you need to rinse off the mold clean with water . Nissus actually says power wash it off , not possible in a crawlspace . Overall I'm not satisfied with this product , guess I needed to research it more .

    Mold Clean

    By John on 02/06/2013

    I used this product to clean off the staining. Was easy to use and the instructions were easy to follow. No mixing made it even better. Area I sprayed looks like new! I recommend this product.

    not just bleach

    By Joe on 12/24/2012

    I'm considering this product, but calling it exactly the same as bleech isn't entirely accurate. Companies only have to list hazardous chemicals on the product label. So, yes, that part of this solution is simply bleach. The difference is that this product at least markets itself as containing wetting agents and detergents. It might not make a difference, but the company is claiming it offers better penetration for wood than bleach (i.e. what wetting agents do). I have bought enough bleach-like solutions to know that some are better than others.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Why is Boracare w/mold care $117.95 VS Boracare @ $77.45 plus Mold Clean @ $23.50 or $100.96?
A
Comparing Boracare with MoldCare to Boracare and Mold Clean is comparing apples to oranges. Mold Clean is only going to remove the stain from mold, it does not kill mold or prevent mold. Mold Clean is supposed to be used in addition to the Boracare with Moldcare to remove unsightly mold and mildew stains. Boracare by itself does not kill or prevent mold.

Q
How should I use Mold Clean in my crawl space?

I have mold in a crawl space. I plan to use Bora-Care with Mold-Care to kill it but would like to use Mold-Clean to remove the black stains. The directions state that you should rinse the Mold-Care with a high pressure stream. That is not feasible in a crawl space or attic. Any suggestions?

A
For best results the label for Mold-Clean recommends using a high pressure stream but you are right, it is not feasible to do this in a crawl space or attic space.  We would recommend wetting the stained area with water, then spray the Mold-Clean on the area and let sit for 10 minutes.  Do not allow the product to dry, keep wet with water in a spray bottle if necessary.  Then after the Mold-Clean has sat on the wood for 10 minutes, take a scrub brush and a bucket of water and scrub the stained area using a liberal amount of water.  This should help get the wood pretty close to the same effect of using a high pressure stream.

Q
The product says it does not treat mold, but if you use Bora-Care with Moldcare which do you use first?

Shouldn't I treat the mold first then clean it? Thanks.

A
According to Nisus, the manufacturer of both Bora-Care with Mold Care and Mold Clean you should apply the Mold Clean first to get rid of the mold stains then the Bora-Care with Mold Care.

Q
Can I use Mold-Clean to clean shower trays and bath tubs? Will it be safe?
A
Mold-Clean is not labeled to treat indoors in household fixtures like showers and tubs.  It is intended to remove mold stains on wood and concrete.  You should use a household bleach cleaner for mold in tubs and showers.
