Organic Environmental Technology Inc. announced the availability of a 100% organic toxic mold remedy for mold remediation professionals and homeowners. This chemical free mold cleaner is based on the same technology used effectively in the aftermath of the flooding in Katrina.
Lake View Terrace, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2008 -- Organic Environmental Technology (http://www.organicet.com) announced today the availability of a certified organic toxic mold remedy for mold removal and mold abatement exploiting the same technology that was used effectively on the toxic mold that spread like the plague in the wake of hurricane Katrina. Now professionals and homeowners alike can have a safe all natural alternative to chemical biocides or bleach for mold abatement.
"Certainly disasters are horrible things. Unfortunately it took a crisis like Katrina to get this technology on the radar. But it was still only known as another emergency response remedy," stated Paul Scholz, one of the owners of Organic Environmental Technology Inc.
Scholz continued, "I sent my daughter down to Katrina with a group of volunteers to do something about the devastating conditions and to help the people. When she returned I learned about a new technology that was getting used as a chemical free mold cleaner on an emergency response basis to help deal with the toxic mold in and around New Orleans. We looked into it and were so impressed that we have used that same organic technology for toxic mold abatement in our mold remediation division of our company ever since. It made no sense to us to use chemical biocides that we felt could be as harmful to health as the mold they were addressing. We feel there are many other like minded professionals and homeowners and want to give them access to this green solution."
"What we are making available is chemical free mold cleaner using a proprietary blend of beneficial microorganisms that are the natural enemies of mold. When a room is liberated with healthy beneficial bacteria the mold has no food source and dies off. We are not however stating this is a silver bullet; professional mold remediation and mold abatement protocols still apply where called for."
"We utilize the best EM technology starter cultures available in our manufacturing. EM or Efficient Microbes is a probiotic blend of 15 beneficial microbes that consume toxins and the things molds live on voraciously. The combination of healthy bacteria in EM actually forms a self protecting mechanism that is remarkable."
"We have already begun to make "Mold Magician" http://www.effens.com/mold-magician.php available to mold remediation professionals. In an industry that is as litigious as mold, changing proven protocols is risky business and takes a leap of faith. The ease of use and results has made that transition a confident one even for the most skeptical of individuals. Case in point, following is an excerpt from an email conversation between a major hotel contractor and their subcontractor, (a large mold abatement contractor):
Contractor: 'I want to discuss with you and have you try a new microbial product I found'
Mold Sub: 'You're kidding right??'
Mold Sub: 'For starters that *bleep* doesn't work. … Forget it. I can't even type fast enough to tell you the hundred reasons why that is a horrible idea. When can we meet on-site? How about tomorrow? And leave that spray *bleep* in your office.'
"(At this point in the conversation the Mold Sub investigates our company and the product.)"
Contractor: 'Would you ever use this product?'
Mold Sub: 'Yes. As a matter of fact I will order a bunch of it for this job. From talking with Paul I can tell these guys know their stuff.'
'I checked out the manufacturer's website, www.effens.com, and was surprised to see that these guys really do seem to know their stuff. They have the same certifications that we have and recommend the same work procedures that we practice. So I called the guy, Paul Scholz, and explained to him the extent of the mold growth at the hotel.'
"(At this point the Mold Sub has used the Mold Magician on his project.)"
Mold Sub to Contractor: 'I've got to be honest with you. We bought 55 gallons of Mold Magician as a favor to you. I had low expectations of its effectiveness and figured it would sit in the warehouse. Was I ever wrong. That stuff kicks *bleep*! Our initial assessment under the conditions on this project is that it works great. Our site superintendent prefers it over some of the anti-microbial pretreatment products we have been using for years. I'm sure we'll be ordering more. However, don't run around thinking anyone can apply this stuff to remedy a mold problem. You still need professionals like us.'
Contractor: 'This sub is the best in the area for any abatement work. He does 100% of my jobs.'
"Applying Mold Magician http://www.effens.com/mold-magician.php is very similar to applying chemical biocides with the exception that Mold Magician, in and of itself, does not require personal protective gear to be worn by those using it or those exposed to it. So, a professional operator can begin using it with no down time for training or safety classes. One would however use standard procedures for remediation as mold spores can be harmful.
