Many of you know my story by now. The one where I had to walk away from everything I owned because toxic mold invaded my house. As such, mold prevention and mycotoxin removal have become a regular part of my existence.
Toxic mold exposure made me a very sick person.
It darn near ended my life. It has caused permanent damage to my body, my immune system, and my brain. Being re-exposed to toxic mold and it’s evil offspring, mycotoxins, isn’t something I can afford to let happen. Therefore, like clockwork, I execute my monthly mold prevention and mycotoxin removal routine.
I am sharing my secret with all of you today because my routine has worked incredibly well! I feel great, my home environment has stayed healthy and I kept the levels of mold spores and mycotoxins at bay. This simple, cost effective routine takes me about one hour once a month…a small time investment for your health right?
Mold prevention requires two products.
Two. That’s it. One is the mold prevention solution and the other is the delivery system. You can’t beat the simplicity in that. Let’s take a look at the products I use and how I make the magic happen!
Monthly Mold Prevention
In order to keep the mold spore count down in your home, office, car, etc… you will two items. EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate and a Portable Fogger. You can read all about my top picks for foggers over on my new website Mold Help For You.
EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate
EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate is an all-natural botanical solution that, when mixed with distilled water, can be used to maintain a mold- and bacteria-free home. The solution contains a proprietary blend of citrus seed extracts with antimicrobial properties to effectively remove the mold spores that collect on the hard and soft surfaces of your home. In addition, it inhibits new mold growth.
This product is a recommended and proven part of the Environmental Treatment Protocol, developed by Dr. Don Dennis, for sufferers of Chronic Sinusitis or other mold related disease. This product is safe for all materials, surfaces and fabrics. This product is safe for children and pets, does not off-gas, contains no harmful chemicals and is not toxic. I do cover my fish tank when I spray and I shuffle my bunny, cat, and dog into another room since I don’t want them to get a direct hit. I have had no issues with my pets being exposed to this solution right after fogging.
EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate comes in a 16 ounce bottle, and once properly diluted, makes 1 gallon of cleaning solution. One bottle of EC3 Mold Concentrate will fog a 4000 sq. ft. home 6-8 times making it VERY cost efficient.
Important to note – While not a replacement for mold remediation, EC3 solution used in the fogger provides a temporary safe environment.
Foggers For Mold
I have tried a few different foggers but honestly there are only two that are worth your money and time. Both of these work great and require no skill and very little patience. Some of the other cold foggers I used drove me right up a wall!
Curtis Dynafog Sani-Tizer (110V)
This fogger is the first ULV (Ultra Low Volume) sprayer specifically designed to efficiently apply antibacterial, deodorizing, and mold abatement solutions. DynaFog Sani-Tizer is made from a durable and lightweight plastic material with a VERY sturdy rubberized handle making it easy to move around. The low profile tank design virtually eliminates tipping…empty or full. This is a big deal. Trust me.
If you need to use the fogger statically it provides a tilting option to position the head of the fogger. To lock the head in position there is a locking knob on the side of the fogger. Thanks to this mechanism the fogger can be used in multiple angles for more precise spraying.
The flow rate of Sani-Tizer ULV fogger can be adjusted from 0-4.5 gallons (0-17 l) per hour. This fogger will output droplets from as small as 5 micron range, which is basically a fog up to 50 microns of fine mist. The Sani-Tizer fogger has three precision nozzles located on the front of the fogger and produces a precise stream of mist that covers a large areas quickly.
You can purchase the Sani-Tizer on Amazon BUT BUT BUT it is crazy expensive. Read on for a bundle deal that gets you this fogger for about half the price should you choose to go with this model.
Longray Basic ULV Fogger with Adjustable Flow & Flex-Hose
This was the first fogger I ever tried and have to say it is one of the best delivery systems I have found for the EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate. The Longray Basic ULV Fogger is designed to be picked up and carried around for manual, directed spraying. The bottom of the unit is a generously-sized, detachable solution tank with an easy-fill valve and a capacity scale. The top of the unit is molded into a grip handle so you can take your fogger anywhere.
It is a genuine fogger. Foggers competing in this price range are often mislabeled misters. WHO guidelines define a particle finer than 100 microns as mist, and finer than 50 microns as fog. The Longray Basic is a genuine fogger, producing a 5-50 micron fog that diffuses faster, penetrates better, and has a higher probability of coming into contact with small particles like mold spores and mycotoxins.
The unit’s vortex nozzle is designed to be clog-resistant and after using it for 2 years now, I have never experiences any issues with it.
You can purchase this fogger on Amazon. It is usually under $200.00.
How I Use The Mold Foggers
I like to put either fogger on the “finest mist” setting. This offers the most coverage without saturating everything. I literally spray everything in my home. The mist is so fine that I haven’t had any problems spraying electronics with it. It doesn’t leave things wet on this setting.
Not only do I spray all the furnishings, I spray the counters, walls, ceilings, floors, window coverings, beddings, inside closets, etc… I also spray inside each air vent. For this, I actually keep it on mist but turn it up a notch so it is a little more concentrated and can shoot a little further.
Since vehicles can become easily contaminated, I use my mold prevention and mycotoxin removal protocol in my car as well. It takes about five minutes with the fine mist and my car feel wonderful afterwards!
Here is the bonus to using this mold prevention protocol.
EC3 Mold Solution Concentrate has been independently lab tested by Real Time Laboratories (the leader in mycotoxins and mold toxicity) and shown to eliminate mycotoxins if diluted to no greater than 1:40. This is huge. NO other product on the market has been proven to do this. Not only do you get more bang for your buck but you get piece of mind that you are keeping your home and yourself healthy.
Looking to save some money? Grab the EC3 Mold Solution and Fogger Bundle.
This is a great deal if you want to purchase two products in one place! You can order this bundle here.
If you are looking for something to use in between monthly treatments, I highly recommend the EC3 Air Purification Candles.
As an EC3 Candle burns, the heat from the flame aerosolizes and disperses an all-natural, antifungal ingredient embedded in the soy wax into the air. The candle reduce mold counts by more than 90% in 3 hours. That is HUGE!
Additionally, independent lab tests demonstrated EC3 Candles denatured Mycotoxins. Each candle has a burn life of approximately 22 hours. The candles have no added fragrance, so as not to aggravate chemical sensitivities that are common in sinusitis sufferers.
I like to burn these around my house every week, just to ensure that no mold spores take root. So far so good!
And there you have it! My easy monthly mold prevention and mycotoxin removal protocol. Give it a try. You will be blown away at how good you feel after using this protocol.
