Mold remediation or paint?

Recommended Posts

The "mold killer" stuff that I usually see has no pigment. 

Lots of people just spray it with Kilz, which is what that looks like.

RMR is a mold killer that goes on clear, and destroys the nasties, leaving the wood looking clean. At least that's what the video shows. The other treatments we were told about at a HI chapter meeting leaves the wood visible, so its effect on the mold can be seen.

Yeah. Looks like paint, to me, though I don't know why they would use so little as to leave the underlying problem visible.

sure looks like kilz or BIN or other synthetic mold food.  We see it 50-60 times a year.  mostly advertised as a mold killer or mold stop.  Far as I know it does neither.  

 

I do own a restoration company and we only use Concrobium (bakiing soda) and couple of mold color removers, hydrogen peroxide base. 

 

Some kid at big box told them what to do.

Years ago I inspected a little house that used gas space heaters, those notorious moisture generators, on which a contractor had laid a metal panel roof.  In so doing he eliminated every bit of attic ventilation there was.  The entire attic frame and deck was blackened by something related to moisture accumulation.
