Bora-Care with Mold-Care Treatment

Bora-Care with Mold-Care Treatment - Flood Info

Kills and prevents mold. Protects the home. Guaranteed.

When to Treat

If you have completed the tear down of water-damaged walls and flooring, Bayou Cajun Pest Control provides an affordable solution to treat and prevent mold in your home.

Water Damage

If a home has been damaged by water from leaking pipes, rain or flood waters, have your Bayou Cajun Pest apply Bora-Care with Mold-Care to all affected structural wood once damaged materials are properly cleaned out and dried. Wood decay and mold can begin to grow almost immediately. By applying Mold-Care, you kill existing mold and stop wood decay in its tracks. You also are protecting the wood in case of future flooding.

Bora-Care® with Mold-Care®

Mold-Care is the industry’s leading weapon against mold. It acts as a surface-protectant, killing all forms of fungi, sanitizing and disinfecting the treated area. Bora-Care is the industry’s leading borate-based wood preservative, rendering treated wood impervious to termites and other wood destroying insects, as well as wood decay fungi. It actually diffuses into the wood where remains for the life of the wood, providing residual protection. When used together, they create a highly effective solution to insects and mold. And it comes with a 30 year warranty.

A Closer Look

Apply to whole house or high-risk areas

A Bora-Care with Mold-Care treatment is a one-time preventative application that can be completed either during the new construction phase or applied post-construction in high-risk areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and crawl spaces.

Provides residual protection

Bora-Care with Mold-Care diffuses into wood and remains there for as long as the wood is in service, providing years of residual protection.

Creates a buffer zone

In an untreated home, flood damage can cause mold to grow within a week. The mold can be as devastating as the flood itself. Even in catastrophic conditions, Mold-Care will act as a retardant to mold growth, giving the homeowner more time to recover. It also disinfects and sanitizes, critical necessities in a water-damage situation.

Inhibits the growth of mold

Specifically designed to work with Bora-Care, Mold-Care prevents the establishment of dry rot, wet rot and mold. Bora-Care adds additional residual protection against decay fungi and insect infestation. Bora-Care with Mold-Care can be applied to bare wood, plywood, particleboard, drywall and OSB. And it’s the best approach you can take against mold. Bora-Care with Mold-Care is designed to penetrate wood; it doesn’t just remain on the surface, but is absorbed into the interior of wood to protect it from the inside out.

Remember: Water is the enemy. Nothing can prevent mold permanently if the materials remain continuously wet. So make sure you eliminate the source and keep wood dry. Our liquid treatment is EPA Approved and performs as an all-around Fungicide, Mildewcide, Moldicide and Insecticide.

The Facts about Termites and Flooding

With the rainy summer season upon us, many people get concerned about the impact of flooding on termites and termite treatment. Read this to get the facts.

When living in Louisiana, flooding is always a major concern especially in the summer months when heavy storms and even hurricanes are common.

When flooding occurs, we often receive inquiries from individuals regarding how much their termite treatments will be compromised in the event of mild or excessive flooding. We would like to take the time to answer a few of your common questions. However, before we go any further, Bayou Cajun would like to express our deepest concerns for all those who have been or may be affected by these types of natural disasters.

How Will the Active Termite Control Ingredient React During a Flood?

The active ingredient in Termidor is fipronil, which works by binding strongly to the soil around the perimeter of your home. This means that even if your soil becomes saturated with water, the treatment will remain firmly attached to the soil. You can rest assured that your Termidor termite treatment will remain active and effective as long as the soil has not been moved.

Termidor has been the leading termite control product in America for many years now, and over that time, it has proven to be highly effective, even in soils that have been subject to flooding. This termite control treatment has successfully provided long-term termite prevention even in different types of soils and varying climates.

When Would It Be Necessary to Retreat After a Flood?

While many homeowners that experience flooding may not need to retreat until their next scheduled maintenance date, there are circumstances when retreatment is necessary immediately after flooding. These situations typically involve when the soil where the Termidor protective barrier has been disturbed, including when:

  • There is substantial soil erosion next to the foundation of the structure
  • Repairs after the flood have required the moving of treated soil
  • Patios, porches, and other structures that were adjacent to the house have shifted away from the structure and have exposed new soil
  • Floodwaters have carried new soil to the perimeter of the building
  • Landscaping after the flood has added or manipulated soil
  • The original Termidor treatment occurred five years ago or more

In some of these situations, the property may only need a supplemental termite control treatment. A pest control specialist can help you with inspections and recommendations.

How Will I Know How Much Termite Retreatment I Need?

After experiencing flooding, the last thing you need is a termite infestation. That is why, at Fischer Environmental, we always recommend that you have a thorough inspection completed after the flood. During this inspection, one of our termite control specialists will look for modifications, damage, and any other elements that would compromise your Termidor barrier. The amount of retreatment you will need will be determined by these factors.

How Does Flooding Affect the Spread of Formosan Termites?

As Formosan termites are common throughout Louisiana many homeowners are curious as to how flooding affects the prominence and distribution of these pests. Unfortunately, the occurrence of flooding may put your home at a higher risk of Formosan termite infestation. When moderate to severe flooding occurs, the aftermath typically involves homeowners and construction crews gathering and relocating soil and other debris during the cleanup process. The mulches and damaged structures that are transported could be infested with termites; this enables them to spread to different areas more easily. It is because the Formosan termites may be relocated to different neighborhoods and regions after a flood that is it so important to have your home completely retreated or at least a supplemental treatment as early as possible. This will ensure that your protective barrier is solid and these new termites will not be able to enter.
