Common problem that arises from damp climate is mold. Mold is a type of fungi, they are micro organisms that enter your properties as tiny spores and they grow with the help of moisture. They can reproduce digesting any organic matter and start destroying your property slowly.
Mold affects your health, you can be exposed to mold by just breathing or touching it. People with low immunity and allergies can suffer with headaches, rashes, irritation in lungs and nasal congestion and more when they come in contact with molds.

Property owners in high humidity and flood areas often suffer with mold issues, mold can grow and spread on any surface like your walls, clothes and food. Best way to keep mold away naturally is by keeping the areas as dry as possible and fixing any moisture or water leakage issues.
Instead of waiting for a mold problem to arise, it is always advised to use preventive measures. This can be easily achieved as a DO IT YOURSELF PROJECT. This will keep your loved ones safe from mold threat and also prevents property damages which may become very expensive to fix once mold starts spreading throughout your property.
Our expert entomologist at Pest Control Products Depot recommends using BORA CARE WITH MOLD CARE. This product is vastly used by both Property owners and Pest Control operators to control Mold.
Nisus Corporation is the manufacturer of Bora care with Mold care and they are also a member of NPMA, PPMA, UPFDA and supports Green Pest Management. They have mentioned the following uses about their product in their product manual.
Provides residual protection
Bora-Care with Mold-Care diffuses into wood and remains there for as long as the wood is in service, providing years of residual protection.
Creates a buffer zone
In an untreated home, flood or water damage can cause mold to grow within a week. The mold can be as devastating as the flood itself. Even in catastrophic conditions, Mold-Care will act as a retardant to mold growth, giving the homeowner more time to recover. It also disinfects and sanitizes, critical necessities in a water-damage situation.
Inhibits the growth of mold
Specifically designed to work with Bora-Care, Mold-Care prevents the establishment of dry rot, wet rot and mold. Bora-Care adds additional residual protection against decay fungi and insect infestation. Bora-Care with Mold-Care can be applied to bare wood, plywood, particleboard, drywall and OSB. And it’s the best approach you can take against mold. Bora-Care with Mold-Care is designed to penetrate wood; it doesn’t just remain on the surface, but is absorbed into the interior of wood to protect it from the inside out.
The Science Behind Mold-Care
Mold-Care is the only EPA-registered product that will help prevent mold growth. Combined with Bora-Care, it also kills and prevents decay fungi and wood destroying insects that share the same conducive conditions and actually cause much more damage.
Mold-Care is a specific quaternary ammonium compound called didecyl dimethyl ammonium chloride (a cationic surfactant). This is negatively charged and has both a hydrophobic and hydrophilic component so that it ruptures mold and bacteria cell membranes. These compounds are actively used in hospitals as well as in the beer and food industries as sanitizers.
Use Mold-Care instead of other products which either have no EPA registration and can actually cause fungal decay and structural failure or which can off-gas poisonous components in wall voids and hot attics.
