Have a Mold-Free Summer with Concrobium Solutions
Summer is here and it’s time to head outdoors. The pool or beach is always the first choice to beat the heat: that means lugging all your floaties, life jackets, toys, water shoes out of the garage to start getting organized. But what happens when you find mold on everything? Let us help you tackle this head on!
Where did this mold come from?
Mold needs two things to grow; food and water. It’s that simple. Now, a food source can be something as little as dust but if you don’t clean all your stuff before putting it all away then you’re not helping the situation. Think of all the sunscreen or tanning oil residue, sand, dirt and grime that’s caked on. That, combined with storing them in a room that’s not humidity-controlled, is a recipe for disaster.
Rather than replacing everything, treat your items with an antimicrobial solution such as Concrobium Mold Control. The product is fabric safe, which is ideal for water shoes, canvas and life jackets. It’s also non-toxic making it safe for skin contact. Most importantly, it’s environmentally safe.
For any stubborn mold staining, customers swear by our Concrobium Mold Stain Eraser, which is also fabric safe.
Storing Your Items the Right Way
When it’s time to pack all the fun away for the winter, we recommend giving your items a quick rinse. Using a mild soap will help wash away any oil-based lotions, giving you a nice clean surface.
Once dry, you can treat everything with a thin layer of Concrobium Mold Control to prevent mold. If you want to go one step further, using desiccants like our Concrobium Moisture Grabbers pouches in your garage or shed will help control the humidity and moisture in the air.
