About Mold Solutions
You don't know you need us, until you need us!
Mold Solutions can help you prevent mold problems from occurring and can solve any existing problems; we are a full service mold inspection, testing, remediation and prevention company. All of our environmentally friendly products are virtually non-toxic, non-poisonous, formaldehyde free and have passed EPA requirements for safety.
In the Mainstream GreenHome project, Mold Solutions is proud to have been selected as the antimicrobial solution. Each of our mold inspectors and applicators is required to undergo extensive training and have been certified by the National Association of Mold Professionals (NAMP), as well as the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).
Dow Corning Corporation, the largest supplier of silicone and silane chemicals in the world, began a pure research program in the late 1960s. The purpose of the program was to produce safer, more effective pesticides. They wanted to create pesticides that would not migrate into the environment by leaching or volatilizing.
They created and tested many different types of chemicals, including all kinds of herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, and bactericides. Standard ASTM protocols and a variety of toxicological and environmental impact reviews were conducted on each of the chemicals. This research resulted in several patents and a focused effort on a particularly promising group of antimicrobials. This brought the most favorable of materials into the commercialization stages.
Each step of staging a material for commercialization with EPA regulatory oversight must be taken carefully, as it is an extremely expensive process. Passing the Dow Corning internal performance, safety and utility screens is often more difficult than dealing with regulatory agencies or with customers.
Commercialization of Dow Corning technology began in 1976, after receiving EPA registration under what are called "modern" standards of review. The safety and utility of this using technology on direct human contact goods such as socks, shoes and clothing was affirmed through years of research by Fortune 500 companies, outside laboratories and Dow Corning.
The 90s brought a huge demand for antimicrobial technology, which pushed manufacturers to develop safer and more effective antimicrobials for broader applications, and for specific industry uses. Emory University embarked on a 4-year evaluation in 1995 of the antimicrobials, where they re-engineered them using modern advancements in Nanotechnology, making them even safer and more effective. This technology still leads the industry in safety and effectiveness today.
The final result is a family of Nanotechnology, surface modifying antimicrobials that deliver safe, virtually non-toxic, permanent protection. This technology can eliminate the negative concerns associated with mold, mildew, bacteria and fungi, by being applied to finished products and services or even incorporated into the manufacturing process.
This EPA-registered antimicrobial technology has been safely used for over 29 years, in thousands of products such as air filters, hospital drapes, hospital clothing, wound dressings, socks, baby mattresses and baby diapers. Top companies including Nike, Reebok, New Balance, Rockport, Brillo Pads and Franklin Sports also use it. And after the 9/11 attacks, even the United States turned to this technology, using it to treat over 300 buildings surrounding Ground Zero.
