What It’s For
A companion product to the mold remover offered by the same company, Mold Blocker is specifically designed to lay down a layer of protection that prevents mold from being able to take root in the first place. If the colony can never get started, then you never have a problem.
By itself, it won’t actually get RID of the mold (for that, you’ll either need to whip up your own mold removal solution, or buy a product like Mold Remover, offered by the same company that makes this product), but once it’s gone, you can spray this over the impacted area and it will help ensure that the mold doesn’t return, by laying down an invisible barrier that prevents mold growth.
The biggest pro of the product is that it is dead-simple to use. Simply spray it on, and you’re protected. Some users have reported zero mold growth, even in areas with standing water that have been protected by this product, which is about the best endorsement as to its effectiveness you could ask for. Price-wise, it’s a bargain, but having said that, we would also be remiss if we didn’t point out that this should only be one part of a multi-pronged solution. Specifically, if you have a mold-prone area in your home, this product is simply treating the symptom, and not going after the root cause. To do that, you’ll need to consider investing in a dehumidifier to get the excess moisture out of the air.
Another smaller benefit, but one that’s still worth mentioning is that this product is rated for both indoor and outdoor use. That matters, because if you’ve got a problem with mold outside, but near your house, then traffic through the impacted area can lead to the transferal of mold spores into your home proper.
Some users have complained that the protection isn’t as long lasting as they would like. Nothing is forever, and these complaints are somewhat subjective, but it’s worth mentioning that this is not a permanent solution. As with anything, in order to maintain full protection, this product will need to be periodically reapplied. Your best course of action is to maintain vigilance and keep an eye on the mold-prone area, reapplying your Mold Blocker as needed. Even so, the generous 32-ounce supply in each bottle should last you a long while. We give this four stars. It’s not absolutely essential, but is a handy very handy product, especially if you KEEP having mold problems in the same areas. This could be the thing that finally turns the tide for you.
One you’ve gotten rid of your mold problem, you want to do everything you can to make sure the problem stays solved. If you have an area that’s especially prone to mold growth, this product will help minimize your risk, making it a solid investment, and a handy item to keep on hand. Great companion product to Mold Armor FG502 Instant Mold and Mildew Stain Remover.
