Which do you recommend to kill actively growing fungus in a crawl space in southeast Georgia where the moisture problem is mostly seasonal with heavy rain? The moisture barrier and mechanical issues are going to be dealt with as or after the treatment with bora care. Is the mold care necessary in addition to the boracare?
In general, the best way to deal with a problem like this is to first solve the moisture issue. Once the mechanical repair is done, you should monitor the moisture level to make sure it does in fact decrease. Next, you should decide what to use. As our MOLD CONTROL ARTICLE explains, BORACARE is far superior to TIMBOR because it penetrates the wood deep. This insures it gets the mold at it’s roots. Timbor is really best used as a topical treatment and for what we call “remedial” control or prevention.
BORCARE MOLDCARE is a step up from Boracare because it will work on mold that much faster insuring a quick kill and control. Boracare by itself should accomplish this but can take awhile; Boracare Moldcare does everything most consumers want the fastest.
