Sanitiseroo Mould Remover Active Ingredients

Vinegar, which has antibacterial and antifungal qualities, may be used as a therapy that is both economical and efficient for a wide variety of moulds.

White vinegar used in household cleaning generally comprises between 5 and 8 percent acetic acid. The development of a broad variety of fungi and other microorganisms may be inhibited by acetic acid, which has a pH of around 2.5 and is a fairly powerful acid in terms of its overall strength.

Vinegar is effective in preventing mould development on fruit and at removing some common home moulds, according to research, although it is not successful at killing all types of mould. Vinegar is also good at removing some common household moulds.

Researchers showed that vinegar containing between 4 and 4.2 percent vinegar acetic acid was efficient in treating Penicillium chrysogenum but was ineffective against Aspergillus fumigatus. The study was conducted in 2015 and was cited as Trusted Source. Both of these moulds are rather prevalent in homes.

If you discover that vinegar does not assist you in getting rid of the mould in your property, you have the option of using one of the other cleansers that we will discuss in this article or giving a mould remediation company a call.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests hiring a professional cleaner if the area that has to be cleaned is more than 10 square feet, which is approximately equivalent to a square that is 3 feet by 3 feet.

Vinegar may be used safely on a broad variety of surfaces, but there are a few surfaces in particular that you should not use vinegar on. In this section, we will discuss these surfaces.

The mould remover offered by Sanitiseroo makes use of either hydrogen peroxide or sodium hypochlorite as one of its key active components. When it comes to the production of typical bleach products for the home, sodium hypochlorite is the most important component.

Position of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): It is essential to have an understanding of the EPA’s position towards sodium hypochlorite and the possible usefulness it has in mould treatment.

When it was discovered in the late 1700s that chlorine gas in water could “bleach” or “whiten” fabrics, the word “bleach” was coined to describe this phenomenon. The modern-day version of bleach is a liquid that has sodium hypochlorite rather than chlorine gas as the active component. Chlorine gas was formerly used.

The Antimicrobial Use of Sodium Hypochlorite Act was passed in 1957 and authorised by the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). This act registered sodium hypochlorite for use as an antimicrobial pesticide. The use of sodium hypochlorite as a sanitiser or disinfectant to kill bacteria, fungus, and viruses is permitted in a variety of contexts, including homes, food processing plants, agricultural settings, animal facilities, medical facilities, and sources of drinking water for humans.

Products that include bleach but do not make the claim that they cleanse or disinfect are not considered to be registered pesticides. Products like this that include bleach are often offered for sale as an addition to laundry or as an all-purpose cleanser. mould stain removers that include sodium hypochlorite, such as mould Solution’s MMR mould stain remover, belong to the group of goods that opt not to make disinfection claims, and as a result, they do not need to comply with the conditions set out by the EPA for pesticide registration. Products such as MMR could, by chance, display pesticidal tendencies and qualities, but their manufacturers do not claim that this is the case.

Boron is the parent element of the mineral borax, which is classified as an alkaline salt. Sodium tetraborate is the scientific name for this compound, and it is often extracted from dry lake beds. Boron has the appearance of a white powder and poses no threat to humans until it is combined with an acid such as hydrochloric or sulfuric.

Borax is not the same thing as boric acid, which is a far more harmful substance. It does have a high pH (9.3) and is thus much more alkaline than acidic. In all honesty, this is the primary reason why borax may be used for mould problems.

If you have discovered mould on your clothes, getting rid of it will depend on how long the mould has been there for and the type of fabric. It can be easily removed if the mould stains are fresh by washing your clothes with our top quality Sanitiseroo mould remover.

However, if it has been hanging around for a long time, we would suggest steps 2 & 3 below.

Step 1: Examine your clothing or garment care labels. You have to always follow the manufacturer’s directions, particularly about the recommended washing temperature and drying method for your garment.

Step 2: There are many products on the market that can be used to remove mould stains from your clothes. These are specially made for removing mould stains. You can use these products by rubbing the stains with the cloth. Sometimes you may need to put some water on the cloth first. You can use these products on your own, but be careful and follow the instructions on the product carefully. Firstly, apply your mould stain remover and gently  scrape it off with a tooth brush.

Step 3: The sun’s rays are excellent for eliminating mould from fabric, but they may also cause colour fading and can be harmful to sensitive materials. Therefore, a white cotton T-shirt can be sun-dried, but a colourful nylon shirt cannot be sun dried. Dry the stain in the sun or you can presoak it.  

Step 4: Washing your clothes at the highest temperature possible provides you the greatest chance of destroying mould spores however, don’t forget to follow your garment’s care labels directions for the washing temperature.

Step 5: The best way to dry your clothes would be to air dry them in the sun. However, if you find mould stains again, we would suggest you to repeat some of the steps above or to check around the house for mould.

Mould is more likely to develop on curtains, but mildew is more likely to develop on floors, mattresses, and walls. It is just as vital to know how to get mould out of curtains as it is to visit a professional if you fear you have a mould problem. There are a few actions you can do yourself that can be just as successful when done with strategy and patience. Before you begin any kind of treatment, you need to make sure that you get your curtains checked to see whether they have any special cleaning requirements, such as needing to be dry cleaned or avoiding particular materials. Following these methods will teach you not only how to remove mould from curtains, but also how to remove mould from any other kind of fabric you may have.

Step 1: Use a brush with hard bristles

When dealing with mould, the first thing that should be done is to get rid of as much of it as possible by brushing it off with a  brush with hard britles. If you can, carry out this activity outside from the confines of your house to avoid bringing mould spores inside.

Step 2: Spray on a mould remover

After the first step, we recommend you use the mould remover called Sanitiseroo on the areas that were afflicted. Alternately, you could use a complicated solution that consists of one part bleach and four parts water and apply this to the affected area. The best way to do this so that the fabric is not bleached is to spray the solution from a distance.

Step 3: Wash the curtains in a washing machine

When the solution has had sufficient time to take effect and settle, the drapes may be washed in a washing machine at a temperature of no more than forty degrees or lower. Take care to use a vigorous detergent, fabric softener, and baking soda, if required, to get rid of the odours and eliminate the spores.

Step 4 : Is to hang them up to dry.

Do not dry the curtains in the dryer; rather, hang them outdoors if it is feasible to do so, in order to allow them to properly air out. Because mould may be harmful if it is not addressed and can lead to significant sickness, it is critical to deal with the condition as fast and efficiently as is humanly feasible. If you are unsure whether or not you were successful in removing all of the mould from the curtains, or if you are concerned that mould spores may still be present in the air, it is recommended to seek the advice of a specialist.

Step 1: Ensure that you are equipped in protective gear.

Put on protective gear, such as a shirt with long sleeves and long legs, before you deal with the mould so that you don’t become sick. Put on some old clothing since any bleach that spills will leave behind a stain that will not come off. Additionally, you should safeguard yourself by donning a face mask, rubber gloves, and safety goggles. When cleaning mould-infested wood, it is best to do it outdoors, if at all feasible, to avoid bringing mould spores back inside. If you are required to stay inside, you should either seal the doors or cover the open spaces with plastic sheeting.

Step 2: Remove the mould from the Surface of the Wood Using a Vacuum Cleaner

It is advised to use a vacuum equipped with a HEPA filter in order to collect mould spores.3 When as much mould as possible has been sucked up, either take the bag outside and place the contents in a plastic bag before dumping it in the trash, then empty and clean the vacuum canister.

Step 3: Cleanse Wood That Has Been Sealed Or Painted

If the mould has formed on painted wood (like an interior door) or a sealed wood finish (like timber flooring), start by washing the surface with a solution of liquid dishwashing soap and water. If the mould has grown on sealed wood (like flooring), start by sanding the surface. Combine 1 teaspoon of detergent with 1 quart of water in a mixing bowl. To clean the surface, you should use a brush with soft bristles. It is important to avoid completely soaking the wood and to make use of a sponge to soak up any surplus water as you clean.

Step 4: When dealing with persistent mould stains, use the Sanitiseroo mould remover.

If the mould is exceedingly dense and utilising vinegar has resulted in the formation of stains, it is time to move on to a more powerful treatment. This solution should also be used on any sections of the wood that have not been sealed. Create a cleaning solution by combining one tablespoon of dishwashing detergent, half a cup of chlorine bleach, and one cup of hot water. Make sure you use a brush with soft bristles to apply the solution to the discoloured area, and then let it dry naturally. To complete, buff the surface using a soft cloth.

Step 5: Things You Should Do If mould Is Still Present

In the event that the mould stains are still apparent, the surface of the wood will need to be sanded in order to eliminate the spores that have thoroughly embedded themselves into the wood. If you are not experienced with sanding wood, you can inquire about the appropriate sandpaper grit to use for your project at a business that specialises in home improvements. The grit should be removed from the wood by sanding and cleaning, and then the wood should be refinished or sealed to help prevent further damage.

Step 1: always wear protective clothing.

mould has the potential to trigger severe respiratory symptoms as well as skin irritation. Put on a dust mask with a filter or a respirator to prevent breathing in mould spores. Goggles or other eye protection should also be used to prevent mould removers from irritating the eyes. Wearing rubber gloves, long sleeves, and trousers that can be washed in hot water will destroy any spores that the clothing may have picked up, which will prevent any skin responses or cross-contamination from occurring. (You should plan on promptly washing all of them or throwing them away.)

Step 2: get the area ready.

First, clean the space of any drapes, ornamental items, and other anything that may be in the way. If there is anything that can’t be moved, such as bulky furniture, cover it with plastic sheeting and fasten it with painter’s tape if you can’t remove it. Then, protect the floor where you’ll be working by taping a piece of plastic to the floor and covering it with an old towel to collect drips. Do this by placing the plastic over the area where you’ll be working.

Additionally, since mould spores are so readily dispersed via the air, you should seal off the remainder of your house by closing the door to the room in which you will be working. In the event that this is not an option or if the space is very vast, you may hang plastic sheeting to section off the area.

Step 3: Apply the mould Remover Spray

Use the mould removal spray from Sanitiseroo that is recommended for the particular kind of surface you are cleaning. Because you should never mix the contents of different sprays, you should not use these sprays either simultaneously or directly after one another. Do not retain unwanted parts; their potency will be significantly reduced after only two to three hours. Make sure that children and animals are kept away from the sprays, and ensure that there is enough ventilation.

Step 4: Remove the mould

The most effective treatment for mould is going to be different depending on the surface that has to be cleaned.

– On completed walls and ceilings that have been painted or covered with wallpaper

Utilize the spray that is natural for removing mould. After thoroughly spraying the area, remove the top layer of mould from the surface by scrubbing it with a clean cloth or brush as soon as possible. The area should then be resprayed softly, using just enough liquid to make the surface slightly moist; you do not want it to be dripping. After ten minutes, use a clean towel and wash the surface down well. Allow it to air dry without washing it the next day; the acetic acid that is still there from the vinegar will continue to destroy any mould that is microscopic the following day.

– On tile, stone, concrete, and cement

Make use of the DIY mould remover that contains bleach. Spray the mould remover that contains bleach over the affected area until it is thoroughly wet but not dripping wet. Scrub it with a scouring pad, a brush, or a cloth, and then wipe away any residue that remains. Spray the area again with a light mist, wait fifteen minutes, and then wipe it off with a clean cloth that has been wet with water. After allowing the area to dry out for the night, examine it the following day. It may be necessary to repeat.

– On Drywall

Because unprimed or unsealed drywall or sheetrock is porous, the mould that you can see has most likely already penetrated further into the material. mouldy drywall should ideally be removed and replaced as soon as possible. In the event that this is not feasible for any reason, apply the DIY mould remover that contains bleach until the afflicted area is moist but not dripping, and then allow it to air dry. After that, give it one more light coat of spray, wipe away any residue that remains with a clean cloth, and then spray it again. It is important to let this dry completely overnight so that the spray may continue to destroy mould while it dries.

– On Popcorn Ceilings and Textured Ceilings

It is important to remember not to oversaturate the region while eradicating mould from popcorn ceilings; otherwise, the texture may start to flake off. Simply apply the DIY bleach-based mould remover in the form of a fine mist, wait twenty-four hours for the affected area to become totally dry, and then spray it again.

Step 5: Cover the Spot Caused by the mould 

Even eliminating the mould won’t erase the discoloration from the surface. In the event that the mould just leaves a faint stain behind, you will need to prime the area with an oil-based primer, and then use the paint of your choice to cover it after the primer has dried fully. If the primer is skipped or replaced with a latex alternative, the mould stain will still be visible.

You may use Sanitiseroo for stains that are more difficult to be removed:

Step 1: Spray the Sanitiseroo on top of the sealant, then wait for it to rest there and dissipate.

Step 2: Bring the sealant to its original consistency using a sponge and some water.

Step 3: Pat the area dry with a fresh towel or cloth.

Even if there are a lot of home cures and things you can make yourself to get rid of mould in silicone sealant and the bathroom, you should never try to get rid of huge areas of black mould or an infestation of mould. If you discover a significant quantity of mould in your bathroom, it may be an indication that there is water damage or a problem with the plumbing. In this scenario, it is essential to look for a professional mould removal service company in order to eliminate the mould issue in a way that it will never return.

If you want to try removing a little bit of black mould, make sure you protect yourself by using gloves, a face mask, and protective eyewear so that you don’t breathe in any of the spores.

How can I prevent mould from growing again?

Your house will never be completely mould-free, but you may take steps to make it mould-resistant. Conduct a thorough inspection of your house to identify trouble areas.  

Conduct a thorough inspection of your house to identify trouble areas.  Is there a flood in the basement?  

Is there a stain on the ceiling that seems like it was made by water because there’s a leak that won’t stop?

Is there a stain on the ceiling that seems like it was made by water because there’s a leak that won’t stop? 

It may be as easy as taking up the carpet in a wet basement, installing materials that are mould-resistant, or replacing gutters that have been damaged in order to stop mould from developing or spreading. Or there might be a major issue that would require a significant amount of excavation and waterproofing. In any event, you should start working on the issue right now. Treatment is possible that it may cost some money up front; but, if the mould is allowed to continue to develop uncontrolled, it will undoubtedly cost more money in the long run.

Mould can’t develop if there isn’t enough moisture, therefore you need to take care of any damp spots very quickly. Even a spill on the carpet should be dried within 24 to 48 hours after it occurs. This includes seepage into the basement after heavy rains, buildup from a leaking pipe, and so on. If your home has been flooded, you should throw away any carpets, bedding, or furniture that has been damaged by water if they cannot be dried entirely. Even common occurrences need careful attention; for example, you shouldn’t leave damp goods lying about the home, and when you take a shower, you should be sure to dry the floor and the walls. Do not leave damp garments in the washing machine, since this may fast encourage the growth of mould. A nice place to dry them is on a clothesline, either in the fresh air or in a room with enough ventilation.

It’s possible that the typical household activities you do every day are contributing to the presence of mould in your abode. By ensuring that there is enough ventilation in your bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, and any other high-moisture area, you can prevent even the most mundane of activities, such as making supper, taking a shower, or doing a load of laundry, from inviting mould into your home. Dryers and stoves are two examples of equipment that should have their moisture-producing byproducts vented outdoors (not the attic). Utilize air conditioning units and dehumidifiers, but check them on a regular basis and clean them in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure that they do not develop moisture on their own. This is particularly important in environments that are naturally humid. If you suspect that the energy-efficiency of your house is causing it to retain moisture on the inside, try opening a window while you cook, wash dishes, or shower, or use an exhaust fan.

Putting up a brand-new house or remodelling an existing one? Utilize mould-resistant goods such as mould-resistant drywall or mould-resistant Sheetrock, as well as paints that include mould inhibitors. The core of traditional drywall is made of gypsum plaster, and it is sandwiched between many layers of paper. Drywall that is resistant to mould does not include paper since the gypsum core is coated with fibreglass, which also makes the surface very water-resistant. Drywall that is resistant to moisture is particularly useful in locations that are prone to accumulations of moisture, such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and basements. mould is difficult to remove from conventional drywall, and both its removal and replacement may be costly. Traditional drywall is more prone to mould growth than paperless drywall is, and this makes it more vulnerable to mould growth overall. It is also possible to purchase gypsum board that is resistant to the formation of mould. The core of drywall is designed in such a manner that it does not absorb moisture, which in turn prevents the growth of mould.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends maintaining an interior humidity level of between 30 and 60 percent. A moisture metre may be obtained at the hardware shop in your area and used to accurately detect humidity levels. Simply by paying attention to possible issue spots in your house, you’ll be able to determine whether or not there is excessive humidity. Condensation forming on surfaces such as windows, pipes, and walls is an indication that there is an excessive amount of humidity. If you see condensation, you need to dry the surface right away and figure out where the moisture is coming from (for example, turn off a humidifier if water appears on the inside of nearby windows).

Water may pool around the foundation of your house if the land surrounding it is not sloping away from it at an appropriate angle. This might cause water to leak into your crawlspace or basement.

A roof that is leaking because the gutters are too full or broken might be the source of a mould issue that seems to be more complicated. It is important to clean your roof gutters on a regular basis and check them for damage. Fix them as needed, and keep a look out for water stains after storms, since they might be signs of a leak in the structure.

When temperatures drop, the air is able to store less moisture, as stated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). If your house does not have sufficient ventilation, you may find that excess moisture has condensed on your walls, windows, and flooring. Open the doors that separate the rooms, move the furniture away from the walls, and open the doors to any closets that could be cooler than the rooms they’re in. These steps will help enhance circulation. Allow in some fresh air to lessen the amount of moisture in the air and keep mould at bay.

Mould loves them, despite the fact that they are lovely and assist to keep the air in your home clean. mould thrives in damp environments like the soil found in indoor plants. Once mould has established itself in one part of your home, it may easily migrate to adjacent rooms. Try incorporating some taheebo tea into the water that you provide for your houseplants as an alternative to getting rid of them altogether. You may stop the formation of mould in plant soil using the oil of this tree, which is resistant to fungus even in moist environments like rain forests, and you can buy it at natural food shops.

You may have been bombarded by millions of different hand sanitisers in the market now. Here are some critical tips for helping you choose the right product.

“Made in Australia” 

Some factories are sourcing Overseas Alcohol and labelling them as Hand Sanitisers that are Made in Australia even though they are using Overseas Alcohol. We have been refusing to source and sell cheap overseas alcohol from Columbia, Vietnam or China since April. We are not stating that all overseas alcohol is not good. However, some suppliers do not have the proper certification to prove the alcohol quality and percentage.

This is why we registered the Kangaoroo logo for all our alcohol-based products to show that our ingredients are all sourced  locally. Our products are made from Australian alcohol and produced in Australia. Check our license & certificate

Look for a Barcode as you will be able to identify who the manufacturer is, where the products made and the date of manufacture. Eg. the product below has an unclear label without barcode and info regarding the manufacturer’s details.

Misrepresentation in the percentage of alcohol as the label will show 75% (or 75% ± 5%)  but in the product description will show only minimum 70%. Our standard, if we label and the product description shows 75%, we guarantee at least 77% of alcohol is contained.

Avoid Cloudy Gel. The right “gel” should be clear and you can see millions of small or big bubbles in it.

Proudly Support Local Community

Victoria has been the most affected with the longest lockdown in the world due to COVID-19.
