Bora-Care with Mold-Care
  • Alternate Image 1

Bora-Care with Mold-Care will kill existing mold and prevent future mold growth, but it will not remove the black stains caused by mold and fungus.  To remove the actual stains from mold and fungus, you should apply Mold-Clean before applying the Bora-Care with Mold-Care.  

Also, due to shipping regulations, Bora-Care with Mold-Care is not eligible for expedited shipping (Air shipping).  We apologize for any inconvenience. 

Please note: BORA-CARE is also sold alone, without the Mold-Care additive (if you do not need mold control). Bora-Care with Mold-Care will not eliminate existing termites, powder post beetles, or other wood destroying organisms because it is mixed at a 5:1 ratio to eliminate mold and you need to mix normal Bora-Care at a 1:1 ratio to eliminate existing wood eating insects. 

Bora-Care with Mold-Care is the pest control industry's leading product in the fight against mold. It is the only EPA-registered product that will both kill and prevent mold on wood surfaces. Not only does Bora-Care with Mold-Care treat mold, but it also acts as a surface protectant, killing all forms of fungi, sanitizing and disinfecting the treated area. In addition, wood treated with Bora-Care with Mold-Care will render wood impervious to termites, powderpost beetles and othe wood-destroying insects.

Bora-Care with Mold-Care can be applied as a one-time preventative application during the new construction phase of a home, or applied post-contruction to high-risk areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and crawl spaces. Bora-Care with Mold-Care will remain in treated wood forever, providing years of residual protection. Great for homes in flood zones. Can be applied to bare wood, plywood, particleboard, oriented strand board (OSB).

NOTE: Bora-Care with Mold-Care may come in a blue or green jug. It is the same product just different container colors.




How Bora-Care with Mold-Care Works

Mold-Care is the industry’s leading weapon against mold. It acts as a surface-protectant, killing all forms of fungi, sanitizing and disinfecting the treated area. Bora-Care is the industry’s leading borate-based wood preservative, rendering treated wood impervious to termites and other wood destroying insects, as well as wood decay fungi. It actually diffuses into the wood where it remains for the life of the wood, providing residual protection. When used together, they create a highly effective solution to insects and mold.

Mold-Care is the only EPA-registered product that will both kill and prevent mold. Combined with Bora-Care, it also kills and prevents decay fungi and wood destroying insects that share the same conducive conditions and actually cause much more damage.

Mold-Care is a specific quaternary ammonium compound called diecyl dimethyl ammonium chloride (a cationic surfactant). This is negatively charged and has both a hydrophobic and hydrophilic component so that it ruptures mold and bacteria cell membranes. These compounds are actively used in hospitals as well as in the beer and food industries as sanitizers.

Use Mold-Care instead of other products which either have no EPA registration and can actually cause fungal decay and structural failure or which can off-gas poisonous components in wall voids and hot attics.

Target Pests

Brown Rot (including dry rot), White Rot, Wood Decay; Drywood Termites: Kalotermes, Incisitermes; Powderpost Beetles: Lyctinae, Bostrichidae; Anobiid Beetles: Anobiidae; Old House Borers, Longhorned Beetles: Cerambycidae, Hylotrupes

Target Uses

Two ways to use Bora-Care with Mold-Care:

1. New Construction

When a home is being built, all wood is accessible. This is the perfect time to do a whole house Bora-Care with Mold-Care treatment. This whole house treatment protects all wood from mold, termites, carpenter ants and wood boring beetles, and even discourages general pests such as cockroaches. Bora-Care with Mold-Care diffuses into the wood and remains in the wood, delivering residual power for years of protection.

2. Water Damaged Materials

If a home has been damaged by water from leaking pipes, rain or flood waters, you can apply Bora-Care with Mold-Care to all affected structural wood once damaged materials are properly cleaned out and dried. Wood decay and mold can begin to grow almost immediately. By applying Mold-Care, you kill existing mold and stop wood decay in its tracks. You also are protecting the wood in case of future flooding.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Bora-Care: Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (Borate) 40%, Mold-Care: Didecyl dimethyl ammonium chloride 80%

Bora-Care with Mold-Care Application Instructions

*Always read the product label completely before use.

Mixing Procedure:

  1. Pour 4 gallons of water into a six-gallon pail.
  2. Attach mixing impeller to drill and begin agitation.
  3. Gradually add 1 gallon of Bora-Care and 1 pint of Mold-Care Moldicide Concentrate into the pail of water and continue to mix solution.
  4. Use 1 gallon of water to triple rinse the Mold-Care Moldicide Concentrate and Bora-Care containers and pour contents into the mixing solution.
  5. Continue to mix until solution is fully mixed. Normal mixing time may be 5 minutes. Warm water will reduce mixing time.

Mix solution in a container other than spray equipment, then transfer finished solution into spray equipment. Mixed solution is stable for up to 30 days. Do not leave unused solution under pressure or in tank overnight. Clean and/or flush equipment and lines with water after use.

*Assure uniform coverage of surfaces to be treated. Surfaces must be evenly wet without runoff or pooling. Permit treated surfaces to be thoroughly dry before painting or affixing overlayment materials such as siding, wallboard or flooring.

The entire contents of the Bora-Care with Mold-Care concentrates yields 6 gallons total of finished solution. This treats approximately 3600 lineal feet of 2x4 lumber or 1250 sq. ft. of a crawl space or attic. See label and Application Rates Tables for treatment amounts for other dimensional lumber and panels, siding, and plywood.

Standard Application Dilution Rates / Mixing Ratios for Bora-Care with Mold-Care:

*Mix entire contents with 5 gallons of warm water (see mixing instructions above).

*One gallon of finished solution treats 400 board feet of wood or 400 sq. ft. of sheathing, insulation, or drywall.

Bora-Care with Mold-Care is for use in the following areas:

In and around Residential, Industrial, and Commercial Structures including Homes, Apartments, Garages, Museums, Public and Private Institutions, Schools, Hotels, Hospitals, Kennels, Stables, Farm Buildings, Trucks, Trailers, Warehouses and Non-Food Areas of Supermarkets, Restaurants and Food Processing Plants

Surfaces: for use on all non-food contact surface cellulosic materials including wood, plywood, particle board, paper, oriented strand board (OSB), cardboard (non-food packaging material), wood composite structural components, concrete, block, brick, metals, PVC plumbing pipes and other non-cellulosic materials where an intact water-repellent barrier, such as paint, stain or sealer, is not present

Indoors-

Preventative Treatment for Drywood Termites, Wood Boring Beetles and Fungi (Rot):

Apply when access to wooden structural components is optimized such as at the “dried-in” stage when sheathing and roofing are in place, yet before installation of insulation, wiring, plumbing and other mechanical components. Concentrate application in areas susceptible to attack, to include all sills, plates, floor joists, piers, girders and subfloors. See product label for full details. In areas where access is limited to 1 or 2 sides of a wood member including exterior wall base plates and any married studs, apply 2 coats of solution to the exposed surfaces. Allow first application to dry by waiting at least 20 minutes between applications.

Preventative Treatment for Drywood Termites and Powderpost Beetles:

Apply 1 coat of solution to the point of surface saturation to all structural wood surfaces using a brush, spray or mist. Apply 2 coats of solution to those surfaces where access is limited to 1 or 2 sides of structural wood members. Allow first application to dry by waiting at least 20 minutes between applications.

Outdoors-

Bora-Care with Mold-Care should only be used on exterior wood that is then sealed.

DO NOT use to directly treat soil. Bora-Care solution provides only limited and temporary protection of wood in contact with the ground (see specific instructions) and is not a substitute for products registered for protection of wood in contact with the ground.

Treatment of Exterior Wood Surfaces Less Than Two Inches Thick such as Decks, Sheds and Fences:

Apply only to bare wood or to wood surfaces where an intact water repellent or finish is not present. Remove paint or finish prior to application. Apply 1 coat of solution to the point of surface saturation to all wood surfaces. Apply 2 coats of solution to heavily infested areas and to those surfaces where access is limited to 1 or 2 sides of wood members. Allow first application to dry by waiting at least 20 minutes between applications. Do not apply in rain or snow. Do not expose treated exterior wood surfaces to rain or snow for at least 48 hours after treatment. If inclement weather is expected, protect exterior treated surfaces with a plastic tarp.

For longer performance, exterior wood surfaces that have been treated will require a topcoating with a water-resistant finish such as paint or exterior stain. Apply the finish or topcoat within 6 weeks of treatment. It is important to allow treated wood to completely dry (at least 48 hours) before applying any protective topcoat.

Bora-Care with Mold-Care Features

Treats whole house or high-risk areas
A Bora-Care with Mold-Care treatment is a one-time preventative application that can be completed either during the new construction phase or applied post-construction in high-risk areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and crawl spaces.

Provides residual protection
Bora-Care with Mold-Care diffuses into wood and remains there for as long as the wood is in service, providing years of residual protection.

Creates a buffer zone
In an untreated home, flood damage can cause mold to grow within a week. The mold can be as devastating as the flood itself. Even in catastrophic conditions, Mold-Care will act as a retardant to mold growth, giving the homeowner more time to recover. It also disinfects and sanitizes, critical necessities in a water-damage situation.

Inhibits the growth of mold
Specifically designed to work with Bora-Care, Mold Care prevents the establishment of dry rot, wet rot and mold. Bora-Care adds additional residual protection against decay fungi and insect infestation. Bora-Care with Mold-Care can be applied to bare wood, plywood, particleboard, and oriented strand board (OSB). And it’s the best approach you can take against mold. Bora-Care with Mold-Care is designed to penetrate wood; it doesn’t just remain on the surface, but is absorbed into the interior of wood to protect it from the inside out.

Extra Tips

*Clean surfaces with Mold-Clean before treatment to eliminate mold and fungus stains.

*Bora-Care with Mold-Care will not treat active infestations of wood-destroying insects because the dilution rate of the finished solution is 5:1 rather than 1:1.

*Only dilute with warm water.

*Always pre-mix in a separate container before filling spray equipment.

*Use only on raw wood materials. Bora-Care products will not penetrate paint, stain, or sealants (though these products may be applied after Boracare applications are dry).

*An appropriate dye or colorant such as Turf Mark Blue Tablets may be added to the solution when diluting Bora-Care with water to make it easier to see where Bora-Care has been applied.

*Do not use or store near heat or open flame.

*Do not apply with foggers or similar equipment.

*Not labeled to be tank mixed with other products.

Storm and Water Damage Steps

STEP 1: Remove all wet and unsalvageable building material from the site.

STEP 2: Completely dry the remaining affected areas.

STEP 3: Spray Bora-Care with Mold-Care according to the label application directions on all structural wood and cellulosic building materials, including sheet rock. Allow to dry before rebuilding.

Bora-Care with Mold-Care - the perfect solution to water damage when mold is present. The active ingredient in Mold-Care kills existing mold on wood and inhibits mold from growing. Bora-Care with Mold-Care gives wet wood a chance to dry out safely. Applying Bora-Care with Mold-Care to a water damaged home will kill existing mold and prevent mold from reoccuring. Remember, nothing can stop mold from growing if the conducive conditions are not corrected.

Protecting Structures From Moisture and Fungi After Flooding Steps

STEP 1: Wear appropriate protective gear and make sure the electricity and HVAC are off.

STEP 2: Begin removing mud, flooded furniture, appliances, carpets, and flooring.

STEP 3: Clean thoroughly and disinfect with an appropriate EPA registered disinfectant, sanitizer and virucide like Nisus DSV.

STEP 4: Cut out sheet rock 2 feet above the highest water line to allow for proper drying.

STEP 5: Open doors and windows to begin circulating fresh air. Use fans and dehumidifiers if available.

STEP 6: Use a moisture meter to determine when wood is 19% or less moisture content.

STEP 7: Treat all exposed wood using Bora-Care with Mold-Care in a 5:1 Solution.

STEP 8: Apply termite protection with a 2 foot band treatment using Bora-Care in a 1:1 solution. Once dry, the home is ready for repair.

    5 of 5 stars  Excellent Company!!
    By P in Charlotte, NC on 12/27/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I discovered powderpost beetles in an old cottage. After doing significant research I decided to attack the problem myself using Boracare with Mold-Care. It would be much less expensive than hiring an exterminator. I ordered the product and had it within 3 days. I had a question about the application process and called them. They answered the phone right away and answered my questions completely. I will certainly turn to DoMyOwnPestControl in the future. Great company..... A+ all the way.

    5 of 5 stars  Third Purchase and Application of Boracare with Mold-Care
    By Mitch in San Diego, CA on 10/20/2011
    Verified Purchase

    After getting a $750 per room bid to do our house during remodeling, using this has saved me a ton of $$ and provided necessary protection against termites. Much of the remodel was replacing wood that was no longer structurally sound,  given it looked like balsa wood. From my experience I suggest: Read the labels and application instructions. Use protective gear - while its not toxic, using a good respirator, long rubber gloves and clothing that covers works especially if you use a sprayer - the product does atomized in the air. Use drop cloths if you are doing any overhead work. The residual on the floor is slippery. Any outlets or fixtures should be covered or wiped off afterward. The product can be sticky on non-porous surfaces. I used a blue dye in the mixture to leave a trail of where I sprayed. This is available from the website. One tablet per 5 gallons is plenty. A great product - fairly easy to use if you're a do-it-yourselfer and you can make certain that YOU cover everything that needs it. You also control when it gets done so if you need to apply here and there - this works.

    5 of 5 stars  Treating mold on sills in crawl space
    By George in Franklin, NC on 11/28/2011
    Verified Purchase

    The product arrived quickly. Instructions were clear. It seems to have solved my problem of mold on the sills in the crawl space under the house. I removed all of the old insulation before treating. New insulation was installed after treatment. One thing you might want to consider is that some product will drip onto the plastic poly. This will require time to dry before crawling back under the house. I had to rent a blower to get things dry again. Drying took several days. This means that if you intend to apply a second coat, you will have to wait several days for things to dry out. Don't forget to use a quality respirator, wear protective clothing to include gloves and goggles when handling the product. These items can be purchased at Lowe's

    5 of 5 stars  Boracare with Mold Care
    By James in Burns, KS on 06/25/2011
    Verified Purchase

    Shipped quickly and I appreciate the phone call to sort out a misordered product (my fault, not Do My Own). I ordered this for a porch flooring project. Product mixed well and although I dunked the wood pieces, turns out that a tank sprayer works just as well and much quicker. I did not know how much to order so ordered 2 jugs, but only needed one. The one jug, when mixed, was enough for 300 square foot of wood, sprayed both sides twice (it rained just after the first time) and still have about a gallon left over.

    Used this product for my home that went through the Louisiana floods in August 2016. 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.

    Real happy with it. Showed immediate surface results from long-term water damage (leaking icemaker supply line), and I believe will continue to protect against mold, mildew and wood destroying fungus. Only complaint is mfr does not tighten the caps well, and was not shipped inside a plastic bag in event of leaks. So some product leaked into the cardboard carton during shipping.

QI need to apply Bora-Care with Mold Care to floor joists in crawl space area
I need to apply Bora-Care with Mold Care to floor joists in crawl space area. some joists have stain. if i spray mold-clean on joist how much water do i need to use to rinse as do not want to add a bunch of water to area as that is what caused my problem in first place but would like to get rid of stain.

ABora-Care with Mold-Care is a mixture that you have to mix with water and apply to the wood.  It can only be applied to raw, untreated, unsealed, unpainted wood which is what you should have in your crawl space.  Bora-Care with Mold-Care should be mixed with 5 gallons of water.  You do not have to worry about the amount of water that you use as once it is dry it will not be an issue.  Be aware that Bora-Care with Mold Care will kill any mold on the wood, but it will not get rid of the stain that is left by the mold.  To get rid of the actual mark or stain on the wood, you need to apply Mold-Clean to the area.  Mold-Clean should be applied first, and then you should treat the area with Bora-Care with Mold Care to make sure the actual mold in the wood is neutralized.

QShelf life after Mixing Bora-Care with Mold-Care with 5 gallons of water?
After Mixing Bora-Care with Mold-Care with 5 gallons of water, if I don't use all of the chemical, what is the shelf life of the product?

AYou should only mix what you plan on using.  Since Bora-Care is very thick, it can separate and get "gunky" at the bottom of the sprayer.  This will usually happen if the solutions sits for over 24 hours.  Therefore, it is recommended to only mix what you plan on using so you don't run into any problems.

QCan Bora-Care with Mold-care be used under the floor finish in a basement where ventilation is poor?

ABora-Care with Mold-Care is perfectly safe to use where people will be living and sleeping once it is dry.  You should open windows and possibly wear a respirator while applying the product if there is poor ventilation. After the product is applied, it is perfectly safe to re-enter the living space once it is dry, which usually only takes a few hours.

QWhat is the best order to treat any current mold on studs and to apply a preventative application using Mold Clean, BoraCare and BoraCare with MoldCare?
Doing a remodeling on an older home and opened up all the dry walls. The house previously had some termite infestation which was treated (whole house fumigated + treatment for subterranean termites). There are no signs of live termites anymore. There is some mold on some of the studs. I would like to clean the mold stains and protect against any future termite of mold infestation?

A

Yes, 1st using Mold Clean to clean the existing stains would be recommened then applying BoraCare with Mold Care to actually treat the extisting mold and prevent any future growth. Since BoraCare with Mold Care will aid in preventative measures against wood destroying insects (termites, powderpost beetles), you do not have to use BoraCare if you do not want to. You can use the BoraCare with Mold Care alone †or use in addition to BoraCare for extra preventative applications.†

QWhat is the best approach to treat a compromised floor beam?
1940s timber framed home on brick piers. Cavities were drilled through top side of main (center) 6"x6" house beam to accommodate plumbing, leading to rot and cracking via combination of weakened structure and leaking moisture. Beam is now supported beneath with two 4"x4" posts and bracing timbers. Large cavity with rotted wood remains extending from drilled area, about 2-3" deep, 8"-12" long. Leaks are fixed. Need to prevent rot/mold, harden remaining beam and fill cavity. Accessible from below via crawlspace.

A

We would recommend using Boracare with Moldcare for the wood in the area. This will kill and prevent mold and rot in raw wood. Not only does Bora-Care with Mold-Care treat mold, but it also acts as a surface protectant, killing all forms of fungi, sanitizing and disinfecting the treated area. In addition, wood treated with Bora-Care with Mold-Care will render wood impervious to termites, powderpost beetles and othe wood-destroying insects. This one gallon container treats approximately 3600 lineal feet of 2x4 dimensional lumber or 1250 square feet of a crawl space or attic when mixed at the labeled rate of 1 gallon of bora-care with mold care and 5 gallons of water.

We would also recommend replacing any rotted wood and using a sealant or paint on the wood after application. This product will last for the life of the wood as well.

QWhen applying Bora-Care and Bora-Care w/ Mold Care to dry wood, is it recommended to spray the wood surface with plain water before application?
Treating crawl space and concerned with how this product will absorb into dry wood. Previously, when I have sprayed solutions to dry wood, the liquid beads up and runs off but eventually will soak in after a while.

A

No, you would not pre-soak or saturate the wood prior to application of Bora-Care or Bora-Care with Mold Care.You will need to thoroughly saturate the wood, but not to the point of run off with the mixed solution. The easiest method is to apply using paint brush or roller to ensure full absorption.

If the wood is pressure treated already or had any type of water sealant applied, this will cause beading and running off, even if the wood is old and dry looking. Boracare will not absorb into pressure treated, stained, or painted surfaces. If this wood is pressure treated, you will need to drill into the wood and inject the solution according to the product label.†

QWhat are the Bora-Care with Mold-Care treatment and occupancy requirements?
How long after treating a well ventilated area with Bora Care / Mold Care should I wait before occupying the area? I'll be treating my house after 6" of flooding. I've removed 24" to 30" of drywall and insulation and will treat the exposed 2x4 studs and sole plates. Also treated will be carpet tack strips adjacent to some walls. Am I correct to assume these wooden strips will benefit from the treatment?

A

When using Bora-Care with Mold-Care you would need to give it a minumim of about 6 hours or until the product dries on the wood for re-entry for occupancy. Also, this would treat the wooden carpet tack strips as well. Keep in mind that Bora-Care has a glycol base which can have an odor if it is in an enclosed area, so we do recommend it be well ventilated before re-entry as well.†

QIf I have sprayed my wood with another product but now want to use BORACARE with MOLD-CARE, do I need to clean it first?
My home recently flooded and I was told to spray with a bio activator to get rid of the smell. Now my contractor wants me to use this product to treat the studs before installing the dry wall. Do I need to clean the studs before I do so or can this product go over the other one I've used?

A

We are not familiar with any bio activator products to know if they should be cleaned off the surface so be sure to refer the product label for those instructions but as long as the wood has dried after applying the other product, you can apply the†BORACARE with MOLD-CARE.

QCan BORACARE with MOLD-CARE be applied over a coat of boiled linseed oil
I have a timberframe that I first treated with BORACARE to rid of the existing powder post beetles, then I applied boiled linseed oil, not knowing at the time that linseed oil acts as food for mold. Will BORACARE with MOLD-CARE be effective even after being applied post linseed oil?

A

We have checked with Nisus and they have advised that while the BoraCare with Mold-Care will kill the mold on contact that is present it could be compromised from further protection due to the linseed oil. †The best thing to do would be to clean the wood and then apply the BoraCare with Mold-Care. †
