When our ZeroMold Technicians refers to fogging, it is the process by which the product is applied within your dwelling. The product is misted by use of a spray device and so can gain far greater and more consistent coverage of an entire home; similar to the steam created when you have a hot shower.
We can test different areas in the house and see what is needed.
Mold spores spread. They are carried on your clothing as well as being present in the air. If the entire dwelling is not fogged, then the mold will return in other rooms under the right conditions.

Yes. When mold is growing in a home, toxic spores are being released and flowing through the vents and air ducts to every room. The spores are then breathed in by the occupants and can cause serious medical problems.
Mold is definitely harmful to breathe. The severity of the mold as well as the type of mold and the persons individual tolerance will factor into the actual effects the mold has on the human body. Growth often occurs in hidden places inside a home and is the source of mysterious illnesses.
Depending on the type of spores growing, illnesses ranging from sinus infections and allergies to Alzheimer’s disease and MS can result. Illnesses can be very serious and mold toxins in a body are difficult for family doctors to measure. If you feel sick and the doctors aren’t sure why, getting your home tested for mold is a great idea.
NO! This is a common misconception. Bleach will cause the mold spores to lose their color and appear to be gone, however, the spores will not die. They will continue to grow without color and using a liquid bleach can even increase the speed at which they grow because of the added moisture and humidity.
The individual mold spores are flowing throughout the open air all the time. When the small amount of spores are breathed outdoors, they are combined with such a large portion of fresh air that they rarely have an effect. Sometimes in the spring, the outdoor counts increase and create outdoor allergies. However, when moisture is allowed to dwell on a porous surface inside a building, these few mold spores will attach themselves to that surface and begin to grow at a rapid pace. Once these spores have attached, it takes much more than household cleaners to break their strong hold.
Over the counter products will slow the growth of mold spores. However, this will only slow down the problem and can still cause serious health effects. To get your home completely free of mold, contact a certified remediation company like ZeroMold.
Aside from a water intrusion event such as flooding, leaking roofs, damaged pipes or hot water systems etc, the most common cause of mold comes from air exchange issues. Air exchange issues arise when excess humidity is present.
This is very common at times when the outside air is cooler than the inside air. This will result in condensation and subsequently an excess of moisture inside your home.
The ZeroMold System will generally use only two products during the mold cleaning process. The first product is GM6000. This product is a Sodium Hypochlorite based product to clean the visible mold. It is used on hard surfaces only, such as walls, ceilings, tiles and concrete. It is common knowledge that Sodium Hypochlorite has associated VOC’s, similar to household bleach, however, part two of the process will neutralize those VOC’s. Importantly, unlike some other products, GM6000 will not remove the paint from your walls or ceiling.
Part two of our process is the most important. We will fog the entire structure with a product that will eliminate the spores. GM2000 is biodegradable, non toxic, low/non irritant and non corrosive. Best of all, it will eliminate the spores throughout your structure, thus preventing other colonies of mould being able to form in other rooms/areas.
