The natural remedy against mold exists . It is the Canadian solution of Durga. Molds are an aesthetic and health problem for animals and humans. Now you can get rid of it with a natural product.
Stop molds respecting nature: it's possible thanks to the Canadian Solution
The mold problem h3>
Molds represent an important problem in many areas of our country, also as a consequence of the ongoing climate change; the climatic and structural conditions of the houses can facilitate their development.
Although at least 80 species of molds are known that can settle in indoor i environments >, the best known is the black mold (Stachybotrys chartarum), also called "toxic mold". It produces satratoxin-H, a mycotoxin harmful to both humans and animals, which causes a disease known under the name of Stachybotrotoxicosis. It has been estimated in Europe (WHO source, summary report) that up to 50 hospitalizations per 100,000 inhabitants are due to asthma symptoms caused by exposure to molds.
Although molds, which belong to the large family of mushrooms, are natural organisms, sometimes present in common products (cheeses, yogurt, penicillin), their proliferation in the domestic environment causes damage to the health and materials of our home.
Molds, after insects xylophages (woodworm and related), are the second cause of the structural decay of wood.
Especially brown molds (which feed on wood cellulose) and white ones can attack the wood in depth, making it fragile or soft.
Although black molds are the best known, they are not the most frequent; in the air of indoor environments we can find molds such as:
- Cladosporium Curvularia
that produce mycotoxins and toxins.
Some types of mold can grow in even large areas without emitting toxins, but, if disturbed by changes in temperature or humidity, they begin to emit in the form of toxic spores or gases.
Molds need some conditions to grow, which is good to know in order to evaluate the situations within our home:
- Humidity: may be due to condensation, leaks or flooding. An air humidity higher than 50% is the most suitable condition for the development of the spores.
- Substrates from which they derive food: wood, paper, fabrics, leather, food or powders .
- Temperature: the high temperatures, around 30-40 ° C, like those reached in the summer season are the most favorable.
However, the low temperatures temperatures don't kill molds that simply go into hibernation.

Canadian solution to the mold problem
So if you have visible mold development in your home, you need to remove it .
Whether it is white, black or green mold, the production of spores and gas that derives from it has negative effects on human and animal health.
The common products to eliminate molds, they contain biocides , that is, poisons, often consisting of more or less volatile organic synthetic substances. This means that over time they can disappear from the support and therefore must be renewed periodically. In addition, many biocides are at a high risk of toxicity to humans and the environment (they can be classified toxic / harmful or among the destroyers of the endocrine system).
How to use it: the application procedure on walls
Preparing the substrate
The Canadian solution requires a substrate capable of absorbing water in order to function correctly. On walls with old paint, simply check the absorption by spraying water on the surface; if this is absorbed there are no problems. If, on the other hand, the surface does not get wet but the drops slide off the surface, it is necessary to reduce the old layer of paint. After checking the state of the support, we can proceed with the application of our product.
Molds must not be brushed before applying the solution, since we would simply scatter and breathe the spores.
Then the wall is impregnated with the Canadian Solution, using a short fiber roller, taking care not to leave dry areas.
It is good practice to treat all the walls and ceiling of the attached room alsoonly partly from mold. Once the wall has been impregnated, you just have to wait for the water to evaporate.
The molds are not completely discolored, but you will notice their graying. At this point the molds are completely neutralized and you can proceed with one or two coats of paint.
All our paints can be used such as the super-breathable luminous or the washable and breathable Splendida, or the paint Silk, taking care to add a glass of Canadian Solution (c.ca 200 ml) for each 14 liter can, and you're done!
The molds will not return, and we will have obtained an environment free of unpleasant odors produced by the spores without the use of substances of petroleum origin.
How to use it: the application procedure on wood
Check the state of the substrate and dilute the product as indicated previously in the description of the masonry substrates.
If the mold of the wood has attacked the substrate in depth, it must not be brushed off. To clean the wood from mold and dirt deposits, wet the substrate well with Strong Soap, let it act for about 15-20 minutes keeping the treated surface moist, and then rinse thoroughly with water and if necessary act with a brush with rigid fibers (e.g. brush with vegetable fiber like saggina).
In this way, the timber will return as new and ready for the anti-mold treatment. Spread a generous amount of Canadian solution on the surface of the wood using a roller or a brush (if conditions allow, you can also spray the product).
It is a good practice to impregnate the wood well trying to wet in depth through any openings in the wood. The Canadian solution also works well as a preventative for the attack of xylophagous insects. The wood thus treated will remain unaltered in appearance and in the ability to absorb Durga impregnating agents and finishes, or a coat of liquid wax to finish (eg Encausto plus).
