MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Mold can cause serious health problems and the fall is a breeding ground for it. Decaying leaves release mold spores into the air and that air can get you’re your house.
Mold can breed in humid areas like a bathroom and attic and can multiply if it’s not taken care of properly. There is only one Mid-South business using a new technology to get rid of mold. The environmentally-friendly chemical not only kills mold, it keeps it from growing back.
Diversified Environmental Solutions battles mold with Bio-Stat. Bio-Stat is a non-toxic chemical that can kill mold spores on contact. Since it is water-based, it can go on any surface, including wood, glass, steel, tile, and even clothing. DES sprays walls and windows with the chemical. They also have the technology called Bio PURE. It’s an air purifier that also kills mold on surfaces.
Cade Peeper, Diversified Environmental Solutions, says, “The super oxides it produces gets on surfaces. It kills not just mold, but MRSA and even the H1N1 virus.”
Peeper says there are other look-alike products on the market, but many contain flammable chemicals that you shouldn’t use indoors. Their treatment plan with this new technology can last up to three years.
