BoraCare Mold Care

Protect Your Home From Mold with Boracare and Moldcare

In today’s world we all know how important it is to protect our homes from outside threats. But what about protecting it from threats that come from inside the home? Mold fungi and decay fungi can be a serious problem for builders and homeowners. Decay fungi can literally destroy the materials they grow on and fungal byproducts and spores can pose potential health risks.

Using Boracare with Mold Care can help you to protect your home from the threat of mold. Boracare has proven to be a fantastic product to eliminate termites, ants and other insect infestations which can cause damage to the home and Boracare with Moldcare proves to be no different in its effectiveness.

Homes and structures that are tightly sealed and poorly ventilated can cause a potential moisture build-up problem which are the very conditions where mold and fungi thrive. A simple treatment of Boracare with Mold Care can work fast to control mold and fungal problems in as quickly as a single application.

The active ingredient in mold care is a specific disinfectant, the same disinfectant used to sanitize restaurants and hospitals and has been formulated by Nisus to be used with boracare for even greater performance.

Boracare and Moldcare are packaged together as liquid concentrates. Both are water-soluble but have been specifically formulated with penetrants to provide the greatest absorption and diffusion.

Boracare must be used as a one plus one mixture with water. One gallon of bora care plus one gallon of water and applied in a two foot band around the base of the building as directed on the label. Bora care with mold care solution is applied to a larger area at a 1+5 mixture with water particularly those areas where dampness is a problem: like bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms and crawl spaces and especially houses exposed to high levels of rainfall.



Make sure you have the right sprayer for this product: We suggest a Hose End Sprayer or a 1 Gallon Pesticide Sprayer

Alternatively, you can purchase Reclaim IT Insecticide which is our own patented brand of insecticide and a better value and can be used to form a long-lasting termite barrier.

Make sure you stay protected when handling chemicals with the help of our homeowner safety kit.

Floorboards have been saved!
I live in Houston and while I am one of the more fortunate ones whose home didn't get completely destroyed I did get some water in the home which created mold issues on my wood paneled floors. Spoke with a Solutions rep who suggest Boracare Mold care and I went right away applying it according to the instructions. It helped! Highly recommend to anyone with mold issues.

My home was recently affected by the flooding in the Houston area due to Harvey. A few of our friends suggested this product for the restoration process. It has been very simple to use and apply to the wood frame of the home. Overall very happy with the product.

I am well pleased with the Boracare product. It arrived quickly which is appreciated since logs were ready to install. I like that it does not change the color of the wood.

Stopped the Wood Rot
This product killed the mold and sanitized the wood that has been soaking in water for a couple of days after a water pipe broke. BoraCare Moldcare, not sure what we did before this was available, but it saved me big bucks!
September 6, 2017
So last month my basement was submerged, water finally moved out and applied Bora Care Mold Care about 2 weeks ago. I have not seen any new mold growth. It's important that the bucket used is large enough to handle the mixture. The mixture should be stirred long enough that there does not feel like a "drag" on the stick.
