Queensland Mould Problem
Unfortunately, because of its climate, Queenslanders seem to be especially prone to the proliferation and damaging effects of mould.
The Sunshine State is also susceptible to cyclones and floods, which usually come during periods of heat and humidity, and are associated with excess moisture and the pooling of water. All of these factors create an environment where mould spores can breed and multiply rapidly.
In this article, we’ll first look at ways to initially combat mould using the DuroKleen range of cleaners, disinfectants and mould killers. Then we’ll look at ways to keep mould from returning.
Now first up, before we get into what you should do to get rid of mould, here’s a couple of things you definitely shouldn’t.
Don’t ever attempt to get rid of mould by scrubbing it away with a dry brush. All you will achieve is to release the spores into the air and spread the mould to more areas! Plus, when the spores become airborne, you, and other people in the area are at risk of inhaling them, which can lead to respiratory and other serious health problems.
Secondly, don’t use bleach, or products containing bleach to try and treat or contain mould. Bleach doesn’t kill the spores, so the mould returns quickly and all you get is a heavy odour of bleach, which unpleasant. And you might stain and burn surfaces and clothing you use it on.
DuroDaily from DuroKleen kills mould
The best way to deal with mould is to first of all clean the area you wish to treat thoroughly with DuroDaily. DuroDaily’s formula is specifically designed to get deep into grout to kill mould and stop mould respawning.
DuroDaily is a combination 2 in 1 cleaning and disinfecting product made specifically for use in high volume frequently touched areas.
Once you have expunged the original mould problem what you then want to do is make sure it doesn’t return. And that is where our flagship product DuroKleen really comes into its own.
Once applied to a clean surface, DuroKleen lays down its famous antimicrobial, bio-static barrier. Meaning any new mould and mildew spores that land on the surface never actually contact it and get a breeding foothold. Instead they encounter a dense field of microscopic, positively-charged chains of molecules coating the treated surface. The positive charge and lipophilic tails of the barrier then destroy offending microbes by way of a chemical and physical interaction, that fatally weakens the outer layer of the net-negatively charged microbial cells—The mould cells die before they can reproduce and spread.
When applied correctly to a clean surface DuroKleen’s biostatic barrier has been found to go on protecting it for up to 100 days. Now that’s piece of mind for Queenslanders, especially when trying to combat mould in hard-to-reach areas that cannot be serviced easily or regularly.
In dealing with the after effects of floods, which, with climate change, seem to be an increasingly regular part of Queenslanders life, most have thought that when bedding, upholstery, curtains, clothing and soft toys were exposed to flood waters they just had to be discarded, because they would be infected and ruined by mould? Well, with the advent of DuroKleen and the protection it offers, thankfully this is no longer the case.
DuroKleen can be easily added to your normal wash cycle and applied without fear of burning, bleaching or damaging to even delicate materials.
