Battling Algae, Mold and Mildew in Florida

Algae, Mold and Mildew Growth in Florida

Florida has more than its fair share of the humid, wet weather that results in stains from algae, mold and mildew. Recent years have even seen an increase of slimy orange, green, and black growth, or blooms. In fact, it's been so bad that 2013 was called the Toxic Summer from all the thick algae in the ocean coating the beaches and harmful algae blooms choking up waterways. As a homeowner, or a diligent renter, this means even more unsightly stains and slippery black surfaces around our homes.

"My husband and I bought 30 Seconds Cleaner at Home Depot for the first time today.  I was skeptical.  We have tried many products to clean our white PVC fence, but we always end up having to drag out the pressure washer and scrub.  Every time we do this, about every six months, we end up spending an additional $50 in water during that month.  My husband went outside to test it, and I waited, not expecting much.  Not long after he went out, he came back into the house insisting I come out to take a look.  I still did not believe him.  I was AMAZED at the results!  In the short time he had been outside, he had cleaned several large sections of fence.  It looked like new!  Then he showed me how easy it was.  He sprayed another section, and right before my eyes, the green mold and slime seemed to melt away.  It was a miracle!  I have never been so pleased with a new product.  So much so, I had to share the results with you, and take the time to thank you for creating this product.  I will never have to pressure wash the fence again.  This will save us time, and some back breaking work.  I have attached  a before and after picture, as well as a video link.  Please feel free to use it to show the effectiveness of your product."

Thank you for your question, Dan. Our products are outdoor cleaners and are not the best options for treating black mold in walls. We would recommend you try and talk to a contractor who specializes in properly removing black mold. Good luck with your project.

We own a rental property which had a plumbing leak (Small leak, but went undetected for about a year).A plumbing company repaired the leak, but warned that the ceramic tile wall would need to be removed in order to remove/take out the black mold. Do you have a product which could be administered through the top of the wall ABOVE the mold where the wall is sheetrock (gypsum board), so as to not disturb the ceramic tile. Thank you. Don Weso

Great Questions, Jamie! Yes, 30 SECONDS is safe to use on the screens and lanais surrounding pool areas. We always recommend you test first when cleaning a new surface. Apply the cleaner, wait 5 minutes, and rinse to see what results to expect. Make sure you rinse well if there is any exposed metal. Feel free to reach out to us directly if you have more questions, 503-669-1953. Cheers!

Is your product safe to use on the screens we have in Florida around our pools?
