Mould problems on hard surfaces such as walls and roof or soft furnishings like carpet and fabric has been increasing in 2021 as Australia gets plenty of rain. The need to find an effective cleaner and spore killer is at its highest in decades. Luckily the team at Actichem have put some extra products on the menu this year. Its important to note that a sodium hypochlorite based solution can often be misguiding. if a product says Mould Remover, it can remove the mould but not kill the spore which leads to rapid regrowth. Ideally the best way is to kill the spore. We have recently added this page with invention of some new products that are quite outstanding in this area.
In summary : you need to know what type of job you are faced with to better understand the product suited for your requirements. If you have visible mould and wish to clean it and kill the spore then some rapid hydrogen peroxide based chemicals with mould inhibitors are the choice. If you have no visible mold but with to kill any spore that may be present you can use a Bio Sanitiser with anti mould properties. For large scale mold cleaning or for the cleaner that wishes to boost their powers, there is now a booster to put into Chlorine ( Sodium Hypochlorite ) making it very cost effective and enabling the cleaner to make fresh batches at a moments notice.
Please note, Sodium Hypochlorite which is bleach and chlorine are really bad for waterways, septic tanks or bio cycle systems. It cleans that effectively by killing bacteria, it will also kill the good bacteria needed for the planets harmony. it will make your septic tank and biocycle smell bad as the good bacteria are dead. If you allow it into waterways by sending it straight down the gutters in the street, it will not only harm wildlife but can contribute to algae blooms on waterways, depleting oxygen and destroying habitant and marine life- SO DO THE RIGHT THING - When using try to direct the run off to a grassed area or median strips so mother earth can filter it. We often have this question > how can i clean a bad shower area if the home has septic or Biocycle. The usual answer is to use old towels we sell to collect it before it runs down the waste. We do have alternatives , but often you do need the cleaning power to remove the ingrained staining from mould. In this instance always use a thick bleach. Thats 6% percentage of Hypo and also have detergent surfactant which helps the bleach cling to surfaces and helps introduce oxygen to the mix whilst cleaning. As a footnote to the above, we can supply products to bring back healthy bacteria FYI.
