Non-toxic mold control
The Sunday Keys
August 13, 2006 – Containing none of the toxic ingredients found in most mold remediation products, such as bleach and ammonia, Concrobium Mold Control was registered with the Environmental Protection Agency and approved for sale across the country just months ago.
The all-natural ingredients in the new product allow Vice President of Sales Bob East to spray the concoction directly on his skin or even drink down a handful without harm.
With the demonstration mind, an obvious question arises – how is a product containing no toxins effective at remediating mold?
“Its primary ingredients are natural food additives,” explained East. “Instead of attacking mold spores in the way toxic chemicals do, the food additives encapsulate the spores and physically crush the mold micro-organisms.”
Manufactured by Toronto, Canada-based Siamons International Inc., Concrobium Mold Control was discovered by accident when chemists were attempting to develop an industrial cleaner, noted East.
The product has been shown to be effective at preventing mold growth if applied on all sides of building materials prior to construction. In addition, Concrobium Mold Control is also effective after mold is discovered in a building.
Unlike traditional bleach and ammonia-based mold remediation products, the product can be applied without the fear of humans or pets becoming sick from the toxins. The product does not require that people remain out of a building if it’s been fogged.
Concrobium Mold Control is available in a 32 oz. spray bottle, which retails for $12, as well as one gallon and 5-gallon sizes. One gallon costs $45, while a 5-gallon bottle is $200, said East.
The product cannot be diluted with water or its effectiveness will be compromised. “It’s not dirt cheap, but compared to all the other mold remediation and prevention products we’re very competitive,” said East, “especially considering our product is a much safer, environmentally friendly option.”
