Mold Removal Professionals Know Bleach is Not an Effective Product
FastMoldRemoval.com, the innovators behind MMR mold stain remover and MPI antimicrobial, provides solutions to remove and prevent mold problems.
Yesterday, the Quad-City Times published an article entitled “Bleach only makes mold problems worse.” The article was in response to a reader’s question about how to handle mold found on the walls of their master bedroom.
Consumers tend to view bleach as an acceptable biocide to treat all molds. This belief has been perpetuated by health departments and other state and local agencies that promoted bleach in the past as an “accepted and answer-all” solution. However, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have begun to change their stance regarding this long-held belief with regards to mold remediation projects.
Some people have incorrectly extrapolated the benefits of bleach, as it pertains to hard, non-porous surfaces and to porous building materials like drywall, OSB and framing materials that often succumb to mold infestation following water intrusion. Household bleach has many limitations that make it ineffective in the remediation of porous building materials. Bleach, as a diluted sodium hypochlorite solution stabilized in water, degrades over time, making it less potent, especially as a stain remover. It also contains minimal amounts of surfactants. Surfactants are essential in allowing the hypochlorite solution to penetrate the building material to reach all parts of any mold contamination.
“An aggressive hypochlorite solution that is delivered with enough surfactants to impact the embedded mold hyphae, while also addressing the enzymatic surface staining, becomes something other than household bleach,” reported Chris Heller with FastMoldRemoval.com. “When manufactured in short, periodic intervals, such a product reduces water degradation, providing sufficient stain removing capabilities. MMR mold stain remover meets these qualifications. MMR has a decade of field testing successes and is used by professionals across the country to handle tough mold remediation projects. Used in conjunction with MPI antimicrobial, MMR provides a complete solution.”
