Mold Guard

New Advanced Low Level LED Lighting Kills Mold In Many Different Applications.

 

"MoldGuard"

Back in the late 90's NASA was doing research on growing plants in space and on Mars using LED lighting. In those days people growing plants under lights were using HID or HPS lamps that require a lot of power and are very hot. LED lights were just being thought about and used for this application.

Well what the NASA researchers found was that the LED lights they were using were also killing the mold on the plants. Grow lights use a variety of colors to grow indoors. One of these colors is a specific nanometer of blue light. This particular nanometer used in grow lights was actually killing mold and growing plants.

Testing With Top Mold Remeditation Companies

Taking this a step further we have been doing testing with one of the top Mold Remediation experts in the country. We have developed a new LED Strip Light with a custom blue light and installed it into a Mold Remediation Air Scrubber. The results we have been getting are unreal. By adding our LED Strip Lights to the existing carbon filters, paper filters and HEPA filters we are increasing the kill rate of mold spores to a level not seen before.

Air Scrubber With LED Blue Guard Strip Lights

The Blue Guard LED Strip Light we use for installing in existing Air Scubbers has been amazing. The results we are getting are off the charts. Instead of getting a 60% kill using existing paper, coal and HEPA filters adding our LED Blue Guard custom Strip Lights has resulted with kills in the 90% range.

This is a picture of a wall that has serious mold issues. it is a room in the Jacksonville Federal building that had a water leak on the 7th floor. We use one of our 2x4 fixtures as shown above to kill this mold on the wall. The contractor we worked with is one of the top Mold Remediation specialist in Southwest Florida. Their owners have been in the Mold Remediation Business for many years and are on many of the Boards in their respective fields. 

You can see the orange marks on the wall which the Remediation Company has marked and checked for mold spores before and after the Mold Buster Light hit the wall. Here are the results from the remediation company.

They measured the contamination at the orange dots and set the light 6 feet away and took measurements after 5 minutes.

Now at the bottom 6 inches visible colonies where on the drywall.

Readings where as follows…0-10 considered clean, 11-29 warning, 30> contaminated

Top dot started with a 4, in 5 minutes a 0

Middle dot started with a 5, in 5 minutes a 0

Bottom dot started with a 6,869, in 5 minutes 590, in 10 minutes 645, in 15 minutes 157

I know the actual colonies have a slim protection on the colonies The cell wall of fungi provides both protective and aggressive functions. It is protective, as it acts as an initial barrier that is in contact with hostile environments encountered by the fungus. If removed or weakened, the fungi die unless they are osmotically protected. It also provides an aggressive function, as it harbours many hydrolytic and toxic molecules, most of them being in transit in the cell wall and required for a fungus to invade its ecological niche. Furthermore, its rigid structure is useful as a force for the penetration of insoluble substrates that it colonizes or invades

Understanding Mold

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants and have the potential to cause other health effects. 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

House Hold Mold Problems

House Mold Can Cause A Lot Of Problems

House mold allergens are a huge problem, especially if you allow your basement or crawl space to grow mold and spread.

Mold can grow on any organic material, including common building materials like wood, drywall, and insulation

 

Mold Can Cause Big Problems For Your Home and Family

Many of us suffer from a headache, stuffy nose, or some type of allergic reaction when at home, but it goes away shortly after leaving the premise. It's possible that these symptoms are caused by indoor air pollutants and allergens such as mold spores. Wet basements and crawl space moisture becomes an increasingly large problem for homeowners across the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom with basements and homes that get moisture inside. 

Science of House Mold

Moldy Drywall

These Allergens come from mold spores in the basement and crawl space, and house mold to grow on drywall

  • A typical mold spore will be about 10 microns (0.0002 inches) in size and can grow anywhere where there is sufficient warmth, food, and humidity in the air to absorb moisture. That certainly includes most basements and wet walls in homes around the world.
  • Any organic material - including dust, fabric, wallpaper, wood, and paint - all provide more than enough nourishment to keep mold healthy and growing.
  • Hard to believe but one square inch of drywall can contain 1 to 10 million spores as small as 1.5 microns in size! There are more than 1.5 million species in existence, and some molds grow only in the home.
  • Mold can grow year round in any home - no matter how clean.
  • When mold reproduces it sends seed-like spores out into the air. As long as the temperature is above 40 degrees Fahrenheit, they can land, grow, and spread all over you house.
  • Science reports that there can be hundreds of thousands of mold spores in a single cubic meter of air indoors, and a single person inhales 10 or 12 cubic meters each day.

How Does Mold Spread Throughout Your Home and Office. The "Stack Effect"

Even though it's only in your basement or crawl space it can spread throughout your home very fast using what we call  the "Stack Effect". The stack effect is what causes warm air to rise in the home and exit through the upper levels and attic. As this happens, a vacuum is created on the lower levels which draws air upwards from the basement and crawl space. Anything in that air - including mold spores, humidity, dust mites, and odors - will be drawn into the main area of the home, which obviously is where you breathe. The next thing you know mold is all through your house.

Cleaning and removing crawl space and basement mold with bleach or biocides is only a temporary solution. Mold remediation of this type can eliminate mold in the short term, but unless the reason that it was there in the first place is not eliminated, there's nothing stopping house mold from returning. To worsen the situation, Human Ecology magazine reports that dead mold can still cause allergic reactions as well, and microscopic mold spores that were not removed can lay dormant for years while they wait for the opportunity to grow. Additionally, while mold resistant coatings may keep mold off the surfaces they contact, mold will still have a surface to grow on unless you can also coat your ventilation ducts and every piece of organic material that enters the house.

Basement Mold Allergens

Typical picture of mold on a damp wall

    • According to Total Health magazine, household mold growth is accelerated by warmth and high humidity - especially in the basement and crawl space
    • Mold spores can affect a home's inhabitants through inhalation, ingestion, and skin contact, causing a runny nose, watery eyes, mild allergic reactions, a scratchy throat, fatigue, and general discomfort when breathing. In rare cases, mold can even be toxic!
    • The American Lung Association reports that 88 million people in the United States suffer from some sort of respiratory distress, and 50% of homes have at least one person living inside that has allergies, asthma, or another respiratory ailment.
  • Repairs can take a long time and be very expensive in extreme cases, you may have to relocate to another place while the work is being done. 
  • How Do You Prevent Mold In Your Basment?

The easiest way to prevent household mold, is to reduce indoor humidity within the home to below 60%. Other important steps include removing all sources of water leakage within the home, sealing penetrations in walls and floors, checking for moldy odors, and removing all sources of freestanding water.
