Find and Remove Mold from Your Environment!
To break the cycle of reacting to mold you MUST remove mold from your environment — home, office, and even your car. Mold requires a moisture level of 50% or more to grow. Logically you must first FIND the mold source before you can remove it. Next, it only makes sense to use all-natural products for cleansing since those sensitive to mold are more than likely sensitive to most chemicals as well! EC3 Mold Screen Test Plates can be used as a visual way to test your environment and belongings to find the source(s) and location(s) of mold contamination and to test your cleaning progress as you work to eliminate your exposure…
The Goal for Wellness is to reduce indoor mold counts. When using Mold Screening Test Plates, your goal is to maintain indoor mold counts at the following levels:
– If you have SLIGHT symptoms, 0-4 colonies on your screening plates will allow you to heal and recover.
– If you have MODERATE to SEVERE symptoms, you need to maintain indoor mold counts at 0-2 colonies on your screening plates to heal and recover.
Unless the environmental fungal (antigen) load is lowered, you will not experience long-term wellness regardless of medical therapy, surgery, or nutrition changes. When you breathe mold into your nose and lungs (a perfect moist environment), it multiplies faster than you can remove it. Therefore the net effect is a daily increase in total body mold. Unless the antigen (mold) is removed, the stimulus for the immune reaction to the fungus will continue to wreak havoc with your health.
These are the 4 basic steps for removing Mold:
1. Find the Mold
First FIND where mold is in your home, car, or office using mold test plates. Test plates are sold in packages of 6. Basically, the plates are left open for an hour, then wrapped up for 5 days. When you look at the plates each circular growth or colony, is counted, ideally, you want to have 4 or fewer colonies. If you need to have the type of mold identified and more information on the health risk to you of living in the environment, then order a DIAGNOSTIC mold kit.

2. Remediate the Mold
Understand that you need to have a clear idea of how the area is becoming damp enough to grow mold (50% moisture level) and that needs to be solved. You can immediately begin reducing the mold in the area, but it will not STAY gone until the underlying issue is repaired. Mold can occur from flooding, leaks, poor ventilation, and high humidity levels. If you have severe environmental mold contamination (when you smell mold or see it the counts are always excessive), in order to prevent severe illness, you must either move to a mold-free location or get a professional person to evaluate and address the cause of the problems properly.
3. Clean the air of Mold from where you spend the most time
Place a HEPA Air filter in each room you spend 1 or more hours in each day and use EC3 Candles. It is truly important to reduce the particle count in the air you breathe in!
HOW TO USE EC3 CANDLES:
Place EC3 Air Purification Candles in each room you are going to spend 1 hour or more in each day. Burn continuously for 3 hours the first time you light the candle. This ‘micro-balances’ the room and results in a more even burn. Burn a minimum of one hour every day thereafter for best results. If you have severe symptoms, burn the candle as long as necessary to get relief. Recent lab results have shown the EC3 Candle reduces known spore counts to 0 in 3 hours, and a human mycotoxin testing lab has shown it removes mycotoxins that molds secrete! The candle will effectively treat a room 12 X 12 feet, so place more candles in larger rooms. The candle will last approximately 22 hours if burned as stated. EC3 Candles are ideal when traveling or for use in guest rooms that are seldom used prior to having guests.
4. Clean Surfaces
Spray mist the entire house with EC3 Mold Concentrate. Do this weekly or more often if mold counts are not going down. If the counts remain above the levels of 0-2 for moderate to severe symptoms scores, or 0-4 for slight symptoms, simply double the ETP (see below) until you achieve your results required for health. Misting with EC3 Mold Solution Spray brings the fungus count in the air down immediately but it does not keep it down permanently. It is a “band-aid” solution until the mold source is fully remediated, meaning that the source of the mold has been removed and repaired. Spraying will only treat the areas you can reach, and often water is seeping from the outside in.
MOLD CLEANING TIP:
It’s not pretty, but think how hard you would clean if you had LICE in your home. That is at least how intensively you should look for mold and seek to eradicate it. Lice are icky, but MOLD is making you ill! So clean like your health depends on it – since that is actually true!
IF not improved, you can try DOUBLING THE ABOVE PROTOCOL. Double your use of the EC3 Candles & their burn time, & spray EC3 Mold Concentrate twice as often. You can continue this increase of EC3 products until you get results. **Note: The EC3 Candle is the fastest way to reduce indoor mold counts.
* We urge you to NEVER use bleach when trying to remove mold as this can create a bigger problem when the mold releases invisible mycotoxins into the air that can be deadly.
* It is extremely rare for a person to be allergic to any of these products. However, to be safe some EC3 Concentrate on a tissue and sniff to find out if have any sensitivity to it. If so, discontinue use.
