Why We Don't Use Biocide

There are dozens of "Mold Killing Products" on the market.  Of course, there is still the belief that bleach can be used to kill mold.  That approach is highly overrated because bleach isn't effective at killing the roots of the mold.  Then, there are products customers can buy at Home Depot or Menards that are pretty good, but not a full cure.  Treating mold topically is somewhat light treating cancer with a salve applied the skin.

Mold in Nature

Understanding MoldFirst of all, mold is a kind of plant that belongs to the family of fungus.  In this family there are mold, mildew, algae, and mushrooms.  In nature, mold is beneficial because it works on wood, leaves, and organic matter to digest and convert it to rich soil.  But, what is good on the outside is not good inside.

What are VOCs and MVOCs?

Joliet Mold problemVOCs means Volatile Organic Compounds, and MVOCs are Microbial Volatile Organic compounds.  While mold is a kind of biohazard, the impact of mold can be felt on multiple levels.  But, VOCs and MVOCs are invisible and in gas form.  Even a HEPA air system will not filter out VOCs.
