Be on the alert for WellPlant’s “Mold Manager,” a product used to protect against mold colonization. The EPA has ordered that the product no longer be sold in the United States because it is not EPA registered. The product is considered a pesticide and lacks proper warning labels for use inside the home. The EPA says that Mold Manager is potentially harmful to humans.
If you’ve bought this product, it’s best not to use it.
Remember, there are no products available to the public that are efficient at killing mold, and even most mold prevention products like this one lack proper testing and pose a risk to our health if they aren’t used properly.
If you’re looking to kill mold, you’ll need the help of a professional company that has access to products that are only available through commercial licenses.
We know it’s tempting to save money and try to get rid of the mold problem yourself — but, we guarantee you, your mold will return. We know that most mold “removal” products available to the public are harmful to the health of yourself and your family.
Almost daily, we get calls from customers that need an inspection and referral to a mold remediation company that will clean up the mess they’ve made by trying to eliminate the mold themselves.
And, just another reminder, bleach does not kill mold. That is a myth. However, bleach does eliminate the stains left behind by mold, and it will trick you into thinking that it’s gone for good. In a way, this is even more dangerous, because it renders your mold essentially invisible.
If you think you have a mold problem, please call us. Any mold “removal” products on the market won’t get you anything, save for a deeper hole in your wallet when you finally do decide to call a company for mold remediation.
Don’t wait. The longer you wait, the more money you’re going to spend on a remediation. Call us today, we have a lot of appointments available. We’re here to help.
