New Third Party White Paper


Richard Carpenter of UltraSteam Professional Cleaning and Restorartion recently contacted us here at Concrobium to let us know he’d put together a white paper on his experience using Concrobium Professional Restoration Products to remediate a crawl space job in Vallecito, Colorado. ¬†It’s a very quick, thoughtful read and it illustrates exactly how effective our liquid oxidative technology is for remediating mold on any job.

In the past few years, oxidative remediation protocols have gradually become established for professional mold remediators. This white paper documents one such project in the mountains of Southwest Colorado, under adverse weather conditions, to show the efficacy of such products, and the best practices and proper procedures for their use.

Richard used the full range of products — Concrobium Broad Spectrum Disinfectant, Concrobium Mold Stain Remover and Concrobium Mold Control — during the course of this job and was very impressed with the results. ¬†Concrobium Broad Spectrum Disinfectant was used to kill the mold quickly and effectively and reserved specific praise for Concrobium Mold Stain Remover:

Cosmetically, the wood appears as though nothing had ever happened. No residual tannic staining remains…Jeremy Baier of Central Flood Management visited the site again after we had completed work and left. He took tape lift samples and they were sent in for independent lab analysis. Final clearance testing found normal fungal ecology. Two samples, in fact, had no mold whatsoever.

He concludes that:

Oxidative remediation does in fact work, not only in the lab, but in the real world of mitigation and remediation, when performed in accordance with the IICRC S520 Mold Remediation Standard and IICRC S500 Water Damage Standard.

Following industry approved guidelines, using liquid oxidative technology is an effective, economical way to get the results your clients expect but at a significantly lower cost and the remediation industry definitely
is taking notice.
