The Dry-Fog Process is new to Southern Florida but was invented over 20 years ago and has been used to treat tens of thousands of homes and businesses since then. You can learn more on our website or call to speak with one of our professionals.
Frequently Asked Questions
Some people are allergic to molds, often because of prolonged or repeated exposure to molds and their spores. However, many people are actually not bothered by the mold itself. They are affected by the things that molds produce to feed or protect themselves. Find out more here.
Mold requires food and water to grow. It can feed on anything organic, from wall board and wood to carpeting and even dust. Of the two, water is the most important factor you can control in your home that will prevent mold from taking hold and growing. It is important to immediately fix leaks, such as water from a plumbing or roof leak, and to dry out any materials that got wet within a day or two of their getting wet. Also, if the humidity in hour home reaches 65% or more it provides enough water for mold to take hold. Since your air condition is the largest dehumidifier in your home, it is important that your air conditioner is working properly and that you set the temperature low enough that the air conditioner is able to maintain the humidity below 60%.
Mold has been a problem for thousands of years. Instructions for handling mold were even mentioned in the Old Testament. Mold remediation has been virtually the same for thousands of years, you rip out everything that has been affected by mold and rebuild. The primary improvements in the last 2,000+ years are protective equipment for workmen, power tools and air filtration devices.
Remediation is the action of counteracting or eliminating something undesirable; in particular of reversing or stopping environmental damage. It comes from the Latin word remediare to “heal or cure”.
Mold Remediation is the action of correcting or setting right an undesirable situation with mold in a building or home. There are two primary approaches:
Traditional Remediation: has been around for thousands of years.
Dry Fog Remediation: is a more modern approach to mold remediation.
Dry Fog Remediation is a more advanced technology that solves many of the limitations of traditional remediation.
Dry Fog is a two step process that, 1) uses a disinfectant called InstaPURE to kill mold and neutralize the toxins it produces, and 2) EverPURE which is a formulation that provides a microscopic coating on surfaces that helps kill new mold spores that may enter your home.
A primary benefit of our Dry Fog process is that you do not need to tear apart your walls and do not need to replace your furniture, curtain, carpets and clothing. It is EPA certified as 100% non-toxic and is safe for you, your family and pets.
InstaPURE is a disinfectant that was created in the 1940s to sterilize medical equipment, operating rooms and the insides of dialysis machines between uses—which it is still used for today. The first step of our Dry Fog process is to vaporize, so that it is as small as mold or smaller, so that it can go everywhere that mold can go and kill the mold where it lives. It is EPA certified as 100% non-toxic and is family and pet safe.
EverPURE is the second step of our Dry Fog process. It provides a protective barrier that actually attracts new mold entering the home and kills it on contact. It is EPA certified as non-toxic and is family and pet safe and is FDA approved for contact with food. Learn more on our blog.
Traditional “tear it out and rebuild” remediation has been in use (and essentially unchanged) for thousands of years so is well known.
The disinfectants used in the Dry Fog process have been around for nearly 80 years. They are still used for disinfecting operating rooms and medical equipment and have stood the test of time. However, the Dry Fog process itself was invented by two scientists about 20 years years ago. They have been licensing the process as a franchise but have not aggressively extended the network until recently. Mold Bros opened our first office in the tri-counties in mid 2018. Since we have an exclusive license, we are the only company able to deliver the Dry Fog process in the area.
We guarantee our process to passing air quality test. If the air quality test after the treatment doesn’t pass, we will retreat it on us.
Yes. We are licensed with the State of Florida. Our Mold Remediation License number is: MRSR2751
Mold is a microscopic plant and like most plants it produces seeds (spores are mold’s seeds) to grow new plants. The air conditioning system in a home spreads mold spores throughout a home and with enough water mold can take hold in multiple areas in a home. Plumbing and roof leaks, wet foundations and high humidity in the air from improperly functioning air conditioning units can provide enough water for mold to take hold. We treat the entire home to make sure that all mold in the home is killed, not just the mold that may be visible to the eye.
Since we treat the entire home — including the living area, garage, attic, basement or crawl space under the home – it depends on how many rooms or spaces there are in the home. The average home can be treated in about two to four hours. The disinfectant we use is not-toxic but it can be irritating to the eyes so we suggest you wait an hour or two before returning home. Many clients have us Dry Fog their home while they are away at work.
