I’d been pretending this didn’t exist.
We had an intensely rainy May, and a leak in our enclosed porch meant this room was icky and damp for that entire month. The walls had mold on them.
But then summer happened, and with the intense Texas heat no one spends any time in that room (it isn’t air conditioned), so I successfully ignored it. So when Concrobium asked me to so a sponsored post using their Concrobium Mold Control product, I decided that was great motivation to tackle what had been bugging me but was also overwhelming me.
I mean, mold. Ick. Triple ick.
I figured I should give it a try.
The first step is to eliminate the mold. Down at the roots. All this involves is spraying the Concrobium Mold Control on the area with mold, and letting it dry.
After it has dried completely, the mold spores have been crushed at the roots.
But visibly, there’s no difference. Like, they’re crushed from the drying of the spray, but you can’t see any difference. That was exactly what the information said would happen, but it made me wonder if my house was going to look better when I was done. I mean, crushing mold spores is great and all, but I want it to be pretty.
I tried to wipe it off with a dry cloth after it dried. That didn’t work, and I got nervous.
But then I watched this video and saw what I was doing wrong. Once it was dry, I needed to wipe it off with a rag onto which I’d sprayed more Concrobium.
For some reason, I didn’t grasp that until I saw the instructional video. Once I sprayed the cloth, I was surprised at how easy it was to clean. Their video said you can use a brush if needed, but I was able to get it clean with minimal wiping. You can see exactly how much in the video I made showing the process.
And the difference was exciting. Hubby was impressed, too. It makes me happy to look out there and see my actual paint color on those walls!
I was grateful my walls cleaned up so easily. It is possible for mold to stain surfaces. Concrobium makes another product to use for that, the Mold Stain Eraser. It mixes with water and requires a sprayer. I liked only needing the ready-to-use Mold Control spray.
Other facts about Concrobium :
- Does not contain bleach, ammonia, alcohol or harmful chemicals
- Physically crushes mold spores, and treated surfaces retain a protective barrier that prevents the growth of mold and mildew.
- Effective against mold and mildew organisms on both hard surfaces AND fabric surfaces.
Would I purchase this product to deal with mold in my home? Yes. I would. But I’m excited to have more to use on the rest of the affected areas of my enclosed porch.
