Where is your Mold?

How to Remove Mold in Basements & Crawlspaces

BackBack

Basement flooding, leaks and humidity make this area particularly vulnerable to mold growth.

A musty smelling basement, cellar or crawlspace often means mold and mildew, which can result from water leaks and basement humidity. In other cases, it can signal foundation issues.  Use Concrobium to remove mold in basements and treat mold problems on walls, flooring, carpets, furniture and behind walls.

Flooring & Carpets

Concrobium Mold Control is great for eliminating odours and odour causing particles in carpets. If you suspect mold in your carpet, you should pull it back to see if mold is growing on the subfloor and underpadding as well.

  1. Once you have access to the mold, apply Concrobium Mold Control as a thin, even layer over the affected surface and allow to dry.
  2. Concrobium does not have any bleach or whitening agents so you may have to take additional steps to improve the look of surface being treated.
  3. In any case, as a final step, ensure that Concrobium is the last product applied to the surface to ensure the moldy barrier remains intact to prevent from future mold.

Concrobium Mold Control will not discolour flooring, drywall or upholstery when applied.  If you are worried about your possessions, test the product on an inconspicuous section first just to be sure.

Behind Walls

If you suspect mold is growing behind the walls, you must expose the moldy surface before treatment as the solution will not penetrate a solid barrier. Concrobium must make direct contact with mold to be effective.

  1. Remove the drywall or create/find an opening into which Concrobium Mold Control can be sprayed or fogged.
  2. Once you have access to the affected moldy area, spray Concrobium Mold Control in a thin, even layer over the surface.
  3. Allow to dry completely. As the solution dries it kills any existing mold and fungus and leaves behind a protective barrier.
  4. Once the mold has been eliminated, replace the affected drywall with new materials. Be sure to address any sources of moisture that caused the mold problem initially.

Damp, Earthy Smell

Fogging Concrobium Mold Control is a great option for those damp, earthy-smelling basements. A fogger, available for rent at Home Depot Tool Rental Centre’s mists the solution and coats all basement surfaces to eliminate mold and musty odours.

Testimonials

  • We had a mold smell in our basement that we could not get rid of. We tried spraying bleach, and other different sprays, but nothing worked. I found Concrobium Mold Control on the internet and decided to try it. We rented a fogger at Home Depot and bought a gallon of the Mold Control. When I went down to the basement the next day, I was amazed that the mold smell was actually gone. I am so happy to have found a product that actually works. Thank you for your great product.”
