Natural, Non-Toxic Cleaner Removes Mold & Mildew Smells From Fabrics — AND Wash Machines

Natural, Non-Toxic Cleaner Removes Mold & Mildew Smells From Fabrics — AND Wash Machines

Minneapolis, Minnesota (PRWEB) September 15, 2010

It is a pungent problem that unfortunately happens all-to-commonly in homes across the nation. Towels, clothes and other fabrics can often harbor a serious stench of mold, mildew and fungus that won’t go away no matter how many times they get washed. Now a new product called Smelly Towel Cleaner can remove those odors from fabrics — all in a non-toxic, environmentally-friendly manner. Just a half-teaspoon of Smelly Towel with detergent as a booster will not only remove foul odors, it can also enhance colors and keep towels and clothing looking like new.

 

Invented by a veteran residential appliance repairman, the company’s original product, Smelly Washer Cleaner attacks the moldy wash machine itself — often times the root cause of the mold problem. When it comes to the washing machine, ironically it is a device that can harbor more fungus than any other place in the home. Fungus spores often collect on residue left behind from detergents and fabric softeners and result in a moldy, mildew-like smell. One tablespoon of Smelly Washer powder added to a hot cycle can bring a washer back to a healthy state.

 

Medical experts agree that many fungi and molds can cause serious health problems and should be kept away from sensitive people, the elderly and children. Both Smelly Washer and Smelly Washer will easily remove odor-causing fungus and mold buildup without using harsh chemicals.

 

Smelly Towel & Smelly Washer sell for $ 16.99 per 12 ounce/24 treatment bottle at http://www.smellywasher.com and are also available nationally at stores such as Ace Hardware; Hardware Hank; Do It Best; and many other retailers.

Alliance Environmental Group Announces New Technology for Removing Lead Based Paint and Mold

Alliance Environmental Group:  New Technology for Removing Lead Based Paint and Mold

Azusa, CA (PRWEB) January 9, 2008

Those in search of an effective way to rid mold or lead based paint can now eliminate in one clean sweep thanks to Alliance Environmental Group’s newest technology, ICESonic CO2 blasting. With numerous benefits and advantages over the traditional lead and mold removal service, CO2 blasting is the ultimate abatement solution, offering a faster, more thorough cleaning with little downtime and increased safety features.

 

As lead and mold both pose dangerous health threats, it’s important to seek environmental remediation services and implement effective means of abatement as soon as detected. The CO2 blasting service at Alliance is designed for a rapid yet thorough cleaning process without the long wait time, so that customers can handle their lead or mold problems in a timely manner.

 

“This dry ice blast method is excellent at removing lead based paint and mold from crevices that a traditional lead or mold removal service wouldn’t be able to reach,” says Company Spokesperson Stephanie Palos. “With CO2 blasting, customers can benefit from a more complete clean.”

 

In addition to a quick and intense cleaning process, this method of removing lead based paint and mold provides increased safety features by utilizing dry ice blasting pellets that are non-toxic and non-hazardous. Pellets are safe for people, the environment, end products and equipment and do not produce any secondary waste.

 

“The dry ice pellets used in the blasting process vaporize on contact, so no other secondary contaminant is created. The only waste created is the contaminant itself,” explains Palos. “In doing so, this process has proven very advantageous for the environment by reducing amounts of waste disposal.”

 

Alliance offers a comprehensive list of services for both lead based paint and mold, including proper containment and removal, thorough site decontamination, lawful disposal and testing referrals. Demolition, pest elimination and asbestos abatement and removal services are also offered as well. To learn more about these and other service offerings from Alliance, visit Alliance-Enviro.com.

 

About Alliance Environmental Group:

 

Alliance Environmental Group provides innovative solutions in the areas of asbestos, lead and mold abatement, demolition, air duct cleaning and emergency response. Backed by 51 years of combined experience, the company has successfully completed more than 45,000 remediation projects ranging from bed bug elimination to residential mold removal in California and surrounding areas. Alliance is a provider of ICESonic CO2 blasting, a new technology in lead and mold removal that utilizes dry ice pellets in the elimination process without lengthy downtime or risk to the environment.

DangerBusters™: 25 Steps for Effective Toxic Mold Removal, Remediation, and Abatement

DangerBusters™ Recommends 25 Steps for Effective Toxic Mold Removal, Remediation, and Abatement

Vancouver, Canada (PRWEB) January 24, 2005

Toxic molds and fungi are a significant source of airborne volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that create indoor air quality problems. Toxic mold growth produces dangerous mycotoxins and infectious airborne mold spores which often cause serious health problems to residents and workers.

 

Eliminating and preventing toxic mold infestation should include these 25 steps:

1. Learn the techniques and procedures recommended for safe and successful toxic mold inspection, testing, and remediation—whether the property owner prefers Â?do it yourselfÂ? or to hire a Certified Mold Remediator (CMR). How? Read mold remediation self-help books and internet mold advice websites, plus get professional mold guidance.

2. Locate and fix all sources of mold-causing water intrusion such as recurring flooding, plumbing leaks, leaky roofs or siding, blocked air-conditioning condensation drain lines, and high indoor humidity (e.g., above 50 to 60%).

3. Inspect and mold test inside, above, and below each water-penetrated ceiling, wall, and floor with a fiber optics inspection device, a hidden moisture meter, do-it-yourself mold test kits or inspection by a Certified Mold Inspector (CMI), and by cutting out small core dry wall samples from the water-impacted surfaces. Look in the middle and back of each core for visible mold growth.

4. Find and locate all toxic mold infestations (visible and hidden) in the entire home or building by thorough, all-around mold inspection and mold testing (with mold laboratory analysis and mold species identification of collected mold samples).

5. Test the outward airflow from each heating/cooling duct register for elevated levels of airborne mold spores. If there is a serious toxic mold infestation anywhere in a building, airborne mold spores from such mold locations will usually enter and contaminate the heating/cooling equipment and ducts, as well as the rest of the building.

6. Replace toxic mold-infested heating/cooling equipment and ducts if the owner can afford to do so. Otherwise, do repeated mold fogging with a mold fogging machine and an EPA-registered fungicide or an effective mold home remedy into the return air duct while the system is running on fan ventilation to deliver the fungicide to internal surfaces.

7. If any residents or workers are experiencing any possible toxic mold health symptoms, or if there is a strong smell of mold, or if there are visible signs of major mold growth anywhere in the building, or if the building tests positive for elevated levels of airborne mold spores, the occupants should move temporarily to a mold-safe place until after successful mold remediation and clearance testing.

8. Occupants moving out should not take any clothing, personal possessions, furnishings, furniture, or equipment until after such items have been effectively mold decontaminated outdoors [or in a clean room built from plastic sheeting] to avoid mold cross contamination of the temporary living or working quarters.

9. Do not paint over mold problems. Mold loves to eat paint as a snack food. DonÂ?t expect to kill mold successfully by using paint containing a mildicide [too mild to kill existing toxic mold infestation] or with a paint primer sold to hide water damage stains.

10. Before beginning to work in the mold-contaminated areas, contain the moldy work area (and thus contain the toxic mold spores that will be released into the air by opening up mold-infested walls and ceilings) by using wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling plastic sheeting as containment walls.

11. After the installation of air tight mold containment walls, dry the work area (especially if still wet from flooding or a now fixed water leak or roof leak) with one or more large dehumidifiers. Improper fan drying can spread mold spores to cross contaminate an entire building and its heating/cooling system.

12. Inside the mold containment area, use a large fan in the window to exhaust air directly outside on a continuous basis to expel airborne mold spores and remediation-caused dust—or better yet, use an industrial hepa filter to filter out mold, with a flexible hose directly venting the exhaust air flow to the outdoors.

13. While working inside the mold containment area, always wear effective personal protective gear such as protective biohazard suit. ($ 10 at safety stores) or painter’s coveralls and booties or a long sleeve shirt and pants; gloves; and a one piece, full face breathing respirator mask with an organic vapor cartridge filtration, available from local safety, hardware, and home improvement stores.

14. Spray or fog visible mold with one or two wet sprayings or foggings of either an EPA-registered mold fungicide or with an effective mold home remedy if the mold remediation funds are low. While spraying or fogging a fungicide no one else should be inside until the spray or fog has dried.

15. Do not use chlorine bleach to kill mold or disinfect moldy areas. Bleach is not an effective or lasting killer of toxic mold growth and mold spores on and inside porous, cellulose building materials such as wood timbers, drywall, plasterboard, particleboard, plywood, plywood substitutes, ceiling tiles, and carpeting/padding.

16. After the killing of all visible surface mold, the next step is to clean off as much surface mold growth as possible. Scrub and clean moldy surfaces and mold growth areas with either Borax laundry detergent (a natural mold cleaner) in warm water or TSP (trisodium phosphate) from a hardware or home improvement store

17. Except for wood support timbers and building materials to be saved, remove and safely discard all other mold-contaminated building materials in doubled up construction trash bags (double bagging) having a 6 mil thickness.

18. Remove all mold growth from the mold-infested wood surfaces. All wood beams, wall timbers, roof trusses, floor joists, plywood surfaces, and other lumber to be saved need to be totally cleaned of mold growth by using power tools such as a planer, grinder with wire brush attachment, and sander—or replace the moldy timbers.

19. Re-spray twice the cleaned out area with another wet spraying of an EPA-registered mold fungicide or an effective mold home remedy to kill any remaining, living toxic mold spores or mold growths.

20. Spray a protective fungicidal coating on all remediated-surfaces prior to rebuilding and closing in the mold-remediated area. The fungicidal coating helps to protect the wood and other cellulose-based building materials against future mold growth.

21. After the final drying of the fungicidal coat spraying, it would be helpful to spray all cleaned timbers and other wood surfaces with a clear, liquid, plastic coating (available from a local paint dealer or hardware store) to make a hard, impenetrable water barrier (upon drying) to protect the wood from future high humidity and water leaks.

22. After the toxic mold remediation is completed, mold test (clearance testing) all of the remediated surfaces plus the air of each room, attic, basement, crawl space, garage, and the outward air flow from each heating/cooling duct register to find out if those areas are now mold safe prior to rebuilding the cleaned out areas with new building materials.

23. Remove mold from all personal property, furnishings, furniture, and equipment that have been exposed to building mold by washing the items outdoors or in a plastic-sheet-built clean room with Borax laundry detergent (a natural mold cleaner) in warm water. In addition, spray a fungicide on all surfaces.

24. Close in the mold-remediated area with mold-free, new building materials which have been carefully inspected to be mold-growth-free, and which have been pre-treated by spraying with one to two wet coatings of both an EPA-registered mold fungicide and an EPA-registered fungicidal coating.

25. On-going cleaning, building maintenance, mold maintenance, and all-around building inspection on a regular basis (including air conditioning and heating equipment and ducts, plumbing, roof, siding, windows, and water supply and sewer lines) are required to help prevent the regrowth of toxic mold infestation problems. A mold-safe building is not a one-time effort.

Mold & Mildew Smell

One of the most common indicators that you may have mold & mildew lurking at home or in your office is the smell. It is very musty and you likely won’t be able to ignore it. If you do the problem will continue to develop and it will be even harder to take care of.

Since the presence of mold & mildew can also make people sick it is very important to find out what is going on. This way you can come up with a very effective solution to remove it.

The smell of mold & mildew may linger on longer than you like. In many instances you may have to do a second thorough cleaning a week or so later. If the mold & mildew has gotten too bad you will also have to consider replacing part of the wall or sections of carpeting. Do what you can to salvage the original items first but if it can’t be done you will have no choice.

You can definitely use various types of filters and fans to reduce the smell from mold & mildew but it isn’t recommended. Many people think if they can’t smell it they don’t have to deal with it. Yet the spores from the mold and the mildew are going to continue spreading like a wildfire. It can result in too much damage for you to just clean up from. You may end up spending thousands of dollars to get your walls and carpeting redone.

Only after you have removed all of the mold & mildew spores from the area should you consider using fans and ionizers. They can be effective to help get rid of the remaining smell that can linger for a very long time. If you have windows in the area open them to bring in fresh air from outdoors as well. You also want to open curtains so that the natural sunlight can come in. This will help kill off any remaining mold & mildew spores you may have accidentally overlooked.

While the smell of mold & mildew isn’t anything pleasant it at least lets you know you may have a problem to deal with. Pay attention to any new smells like that so you can take care of problems before they turn into something huge.
