Don’t let mold sink your real estate deal
The temperature isn’t the only thing warming up this time of year. Spring also represents the unofficial start of the real estate season’s peak period of sales. Once the frost departs, the market starts booming with folks looking for a simple change of scenery or families looking for bigger spaces.
The sales window is tight since anyone with kids is looking to close a deal and move in before September 1st and the start of the new school year so there’s not a lot of time to contend with unforeseen problems that might affect your ability to close the transaction. All it takes is a home inspector taking a quick look in your attic and finding mold there to put the kybosh on an otherwise done deal.
For major mold outbreaks, we always recommend you call in the professionals but depending on the severity of the problem you may be able to tackle the job yourself with the powerful one-two punch of Concrobium Mold Control and Concrobium Mold Stain Eraser.
The first step in treating mold is to always ensure you’ve eliminated the cause of the moisture. If you don’t treat the source of the moisture, the mold will keep coming back.
Once you’ve dealt with the moisture issue, apply Concrobium Mold Control directly to affected surfaces and allow to dry. Non-toxic Concrobium Mold Control will eliminate the mold and contains no bleach, VOCs or other harmful chemicals that may be unsafe to use in confined, unventilated spaces.
The next step is to treat any imbedded mold stains with the oxidizing power of Concrobium Mold Stain Eraser. Concrobium Mold Stain eraser pulls mold stains out of building materials without using bleach and giving surfaces a washed-out look—just look what it can do on your deck:

Once you’ve allowed Concrobium Mold Stain Eraser to dry you can treat the attic with one more round of Concrobium Mold Control to create an invisible anti-microbial shield to keep mold from coming back.
A moldy attic doesn’t have to keep you from getting top dollar out of your next home sale. Don’t panic, and definitely don’t reach for bleach (it’s toxic and it doesn’t work on porous surfaces like most building material), harness the power of Concrobium Mold Solutions to solve all your mold problems.
