I recently renovated a building that has interior masinary sealed brick wall. The moisture in the space has contributed to mold growing in a small area on the brick. I have a dehumidifier on the way but need a product to clean the brick. What product do you suggest?
Cleaning the brick will be easy. Get the MOLD BLASTER listed in our MOLD CONTROL ARTICLE. It will quickly remove the existing mold and prevent more from rapidly returning. However, there could be more involved needed for long term mold control.
You state in your message there is “moisture in the space”. Is this a crawl space or do you mean the cement wall is hollow block and you suspect there is moisture in the block itself? I ask this because ultimately you may need to deal more directly with the moisture. Having dealt with water in and around the homes with mold issues for many years, I know if you have a constant supply of fresh moisture, mold is sure to return. In isolated cases where there is excessive rainfall or some other unusual situation, you should be Ok.
In summary, the Mold Blaster will control any mold growing on or in the home. If the moisture source is stopped, the Mold Blaster will do the trick for long periods of time. If there is an ever present supply of moisture, more work may be needed; specifically mechanical work of some sort to control the moisture may be needed.
