Bora-Care with Mold-Care is in high demand for mold control after flooding for good reasons. “Disinfectants don’t kill mold in wood and are not very effective on porous materials,” explains Dr. Jeff Lloyd, Corporate Vice President of Research & Development at Nisus Corporation. “Mold-Care is 21 times more concentrated than disinfectants, and when combined with Bora-Care is synergistic. It not only kills mold, it also prevents mold as long as water in the wood is controlled.”
In recent tests evaluating the effects of different fungicidal treatments against four common mold fungi, the USDA-Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory found that only Bora-Care with Mold-Care could control all test mold fungi. Other recommendations by universities including Louisiana State University, the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and Mississippi State University confirmed that only combinations such as Bora-Care with Mold-Care are effective treatments for flooded houses to kill and prevent mold, and even more importantly, to kill and prevent decay fungi and wood destroying organisms.
