I 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.


Bora-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.
