HG bathroom mould spray – how to use it
When using it is best to open your windows and after spraying, leave the room because of the smell.
HG recommends that you leave for ten minutes before wiping the surface clean with water and a sponge.
For mould that is more stubborn, they suggest two or more applications, and scrubbing a little.
You can also leave the spray on for longer than 10 minutes. However, remember the spray is corrosive and prolonged exposure to the spray can result in damage to your tiles or walls.
If you are creating surfaces with moss, remove the moss manually before spraying the surface you wish to clean.
HG spray – where not to use it
The manufacturer recommends that you do not use on artex ceilings. If you are treating for mould on internal or external walls or ceiling it is, best to use a fungal wash (show link). It is not suitable for metal surfaces or coloured surfaces because of the bleach content.
While using on adjacent surfaces prevent splashing on high gloss paint and laminated blinds.
As this product works partly by bleach, first try it on a discreet part of the surface first before using over the entire surface.
HG mould spray -how does it work
According to the product sheet, the HG mould spray ingredients consist of the following ingredients:
- Sodium hypochlorite (concentration approximately 3%) this is effectively bleach
- Sodium hydroxide (concentration approximately 1%) this is a powerful corrosive alkaline.
It is the combination of these two ingredients, which makes it such an effective aid to get rid of mould. The bleach will whiten the stain and the sodium hydroxide kills the mould.
The mould is a living organism to get rid of it you need to kill it. This is what the hg mould spray can achieve.
The HG mould spray attacks not only the spores of the fungi mould but also the removes the dark stains left as a by-product of the fungi. Transfers forms dark mouldy grouting back to its original pristine colour
The spray can help reduce the occurrence of re-growth of the fungi.
As the mould, spray kills the mould it also inhibits new growth of the mould on the surface and this helps to prevent the spores in the atmosphere seeding on the cleaned surface.
It can tackle the dark stains left behind by the mould.
- Fast and easy to apply. Just spray on, leave and return later to wipe off.
- Economical to use as one bottle lasts a long time.
- Removes mould without the need for scrubbing in most cases.
- Very smelly to use, you need to ventilate the room well
- The plastic spray trigger can sometimes break after using a portion of the bottle. If this happens. I recommend disposing of the bottle and buying a new bottle. Rather than trying to transfer the remaining fluid to a new, spray bottle or applying the solution without using the spray. This is advisable due to the toxic nature of the solution.
