Toxic mold is a type of mold that produces hazardous byproducts called mycotoxins. The mold itself isn’t toxic or poison, however the byproducts are and those toxins can affect your health. Individuals with asthma and other respiratory problems are very likely to have reactions to many types of mold, but experts believe that mycotoxins can trigger health problems in even healthy individuals.

The most common toxic mold is called Stachybotrys chartarum. It is a slimy, greenish-black mold that grows on moisture-laden materials that contain cellulose, such as wood, paper, drywall and other similar products. It does not grow on tile or cement. Growth occurs when there is moisture from water damage, excessive humidity, water leaks, condensation, water infiltration or flooding. Constant moisture is required for its growth.

Toxic mold as well as its less dangerous cousins, the non-toxic molds, can cause considerable property damage, especially if left untreated. Mold feeds on and slowly destroys whatever it grows on. The roots dig deep and allows the mold to eat layer by layer until whatever it is living on is gone. When that surface happens to be your roof, walls or floors in your home, replacing them can be extremely expensive.

If you do discover mold in your home or business, be sure to treat it immediately to prevent greater costs later on. Mold Off® is a green, eco-friendly, pH neutral and biodegradable mold removal product that destroys mold at the source.

It won’t cause any dangerous health issues and it is simple to use. Just spray Mold Off® on a affected surface and walk away. There’s no scrubbing necessary so you can let Mold Off® do the work for you.

I wanted to write you about your products. I purchased the Devour Plus to see if it would get rid of the odor from my cats spraying on the wall and carpet. I think I have probably tried every similar type product from the pet stores with little success. They seemed to work for maybe a day, but then them odor came back. It has been about a week since I used Devour Plus, and the odor IS GONE. I just wish I had found this product before I wasted all my time and money on the others. I also tried putting a little in the wash with towels or clothes they had also marked on. Again the odor was removed. My regards to the Mold Off® as well – it worked great removing the mold that was around the underside perimeter of my hot tub cover. Thanks for making products that actually DO what they say they will do.
