Vital Oxide® Mold and Mildew
Mold and Mildew can be found almost anywhere; they grow on virtually any substance when moisture is present, and can be a risk to our health and wellbeing, triggering asthma attacks and other allergic reactions as well as off gassing harmful VOC’s into our environment. Vital Oxide has shown long-term effectiveness on mold and mold spores for up to 7 months of protection with a single treatment. Vital Oxide can effectively be used in all areas of homes and building from the bathroom, concrete walkways and building exteriors, yet is gentle enough to be used on personal items like clothing and washing machines. Used and recommend by mold remediation professionals, Vital Oxide has been the principle product in university and government sponsored tests showing effectiveness.

Monitoring for conditions favorable to mold growth such as water leaks and high relative humidity. Eliminating conditions favorable to mold growth Drying affected areas to below 20% moisture content. Product must come in direct contact with mold to be effective. When water damage is suspected, first eliminate the water source. Next, remove excess water and dry surfaces thoroughly. Product can be used on materials removed for disposal. If excess water is removed within 24 hours and surface is thoroughly dried, spraying affected surfaces with Product will inhibit growth. Building materials exposed to water in excess of 24 hours may have extensive microbial growth that is not visible. Prepare a complete assessment and remediation plan to incorporate Product use.
