Prevent and Eliminate Toxic Mold (watch video with Dr. Edward Close- an environmental engineer of over 40 years) According to Dr. Close, there is only one mold cleanup, mold removal and mold remediation option available today that truly stands out to any other remediation choice. As he points out, on his own site (http://moldrx4u.com/) this plant extract
eliminates mold spores in the air
removes mold spores on surfaces
has long-lasting residual effects that keep mold from coming back
can be used to prevent mold even while a space is occupied
is not toxic to humans or pets
is approved as a food supplement by the FDA
Close describes how the results of over 100 case studies, verified by an independent EPA-approved environmental laboratory, have shown that organically produced concentrated plant extracts, also called essential oils, when diffused in the air eliminate mold spores in the air and on surfaces in as little as 24 hours (Dr. Close)
A. If you do not have mold --
PREVENT MOLD Diffuse the blend of essential oils shown in this video for 15 minutes every 3 hours, or you may instead diffuse for 8 hours, non-stop, once a week.
B. If you have mold --
Eliminate MOLD AND KEEP IT FROM COMING BACK 1. SAMPLING -- Contact a professional to have sampling done to determine the type of mold, and whether it is toxic or not. Toxic mold must be dealt with differently than non-toxic mold.
2. DIFFUSE -- After samples have been collected, then diffuse the Essential Oil Blend for 24-72 hours, non-stop, in the space(s) where mold was found. One (1) recommended cold air diffuser works well in spaces up to 1000 sq. ft. in size. If possible, and for best results, leave the room closed and sealed during this intensive diffusing. This will allow maximum penetration and absorption of the essential oil blend.
3. REPAIR LEAKS -- Repair all leaks and eliminate all sources of moisture. Clean - clean - clean thoroughly with the product listed under household care.
Research conducted at Weber State University in cooperation with D. Gary Young, as well as other documented research, indicates that most viruses, fungi, and bacteria cannot live in the presence of many essential oils, especially those high in phenols, carvacrol, thymol and terpenes. This, perhaps, offers a modern explanation why the Old Testament prophet Moses used aromatic substances to protect the Isrealites from the plagues that decimated ancient Egypt. It may also help us understand why a notorious group of thieves, reputed to be spice traders and perfumers, was protected from the Black Plague as they robbed the bodies of the dead during the 15th century.

"What I found was truly a breakthrough in eliminating the problems associated with exposure to mold because no other mold remediation method available is as effective and inexpensive. I have since continued my research and have completed more than 100 additional case studies. As a speaker at Rice University, I presented new data and answered questions raised by people attempting to use my protocol." Dr. Ed Close
