Mold-Care is the industry’s leading weapon against mold. It acts as a surface-protectant, killing all forms of fungi, sanitizing and disinfecting the treated area. Bora-Care is the industry’s leading borate-based wood preservative, rendering treated wood impervious to termites and other wood destroying insects, as well as wood decay fungi. It actually diffuses into the wood where it remains for the life of the wood, providing residual protection. When used together, they create a highly effective solution to insects and mold.

Mold-Care is the only EPA-registered product that will both kill and prevent mold. Combined with Bora-Care, it also kills and prevents decay fungi and wood destroying insects that share the same conducive conditions and actually cause much more damage.

Mold-Care is a specific quaternary ammonium compound called diecyl dimethyl ammonium chloride (a cationic surfactant). This is negatively charged and has both a hydrophobic and hydrophilic component so that it ruptures mold and bacteria cell membranes. These compounds are actively used in hospitals as well as in the beer and food industries as sanitizers.

Use Mold-Care instead of other products which either have no EPA registration and can actually cause fungal decay and structural failure or which can off-gas poisonous components in wall voids and hot attics.


Brown Rot (including dry rot), White Rot, Wood Decay; Drywood Termites: Kalotermes, Incisitermes; Powderpost Beetles: Lyctinae, Bostrichidae; Anobiid Beetles: Anobiidae; Old House Borers, Longhorned Beetles: Cerambycidae, Hylotrupes


Two ways to use BORACARE with MOLDCARE:

  1. New Construction

When a home is being built, all wood is accessible. This is the perfect time to do a whole house Bora-Care with Mold-Care treatment. This whole house treatment protects all wood from mold, termites, carpenter ants and wood boring beetles, and even discourages general pests such as cockroaches. Bora-Care with Mold-Care diffuses into the wood and remains in the wood, delivering residual power for years of protection.

  1. Water Damaged Materials

If a home has been damaged by water from leaking pipes, rain or flood waters, you can apply Bora-Care with Mold-Care to all affected structural wood once damaged materials are properly cleaned out and dried. Wood decay and mold can begin to grow almost immediately. By applying Mold-Care, you kill existing mold and stop wood decay in its tracks. You also are protecting the wood in case of future flooding.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: BORACARE: Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (Borate) 40%, MOLD-CARE: Didecyl dimethyl ammonium chloride 80%


*Always read the product label completely before use.


  1. Pour 4 gallons of water into a six-gallon pail.

  2. Attach mixing impeller to drill and begin agitation.

  3. Gradually add 1 gallon of Bora-Care and 1 pint of Mold-Care Moldicide Concentrate into the pail of water and continue to mix solution.

  4. Use 1 gallon of water to triple rinse the Mold-Care Moldicide Concentrate and Bora-Care containers and pour contents into the mixing solution.

  5. Continue to mix until solution is fully mixed. Normal mixing time may be 5 minutes. Warm water will reduce mixing time.

Mix solution in a container other than spray equipment, then transfer finished solution into spray equipment. Mixed solution is stable for up to 30 days. Do not leave unused solution under pressure or in tank overnight. Clean and/or flush equipment and lines with water after use.

*Assure uniform coverage of surfaces to be treated. Surfaces must be evenly wet without runoff or pooling. Permit treated surfaces to be thoroughly dry before painting or affixing overlayment materials such as siding, wallboard or flooring.

The entire contents of the Boracare with Mold-Care concentrates yields 6 gallons total of finished solution. This treats approximately 3600 lineal feet of 2x4 lumber or 1250 sq. ft. of a crawl space or attic. See label and Application Rates Tables for treatment amounts for other dimensional lumber and panels, siding, and plywood.


*Mix entire contents with 5 gallons of warm water (see mixing instructions above).

*One gallon of finished solution treats 400 board feet of wood or 400 sq. ft. of sheathing, insulation, or drywall.


In and around Residential, Industrial, and Commercial Structures including Homes, Apartments, Garages, Museums, Public and Private Institutions, Schools, Hotels, Hospitals, Kennels, Stables, Farm Buildings, Trucks, Trailers, Warehouses and Non-Food Areas of Supermarkets, Restaurants and Food Processing Plants

Surfaces: for use on all non-food contact surface cellulosic materials including wood, plywood, particle board, paper, oriented strand board (OSB), cardboard (non-food packaging material), wood composite structural components, concrete, block, brick, metals, PVC plumbing pipes and other non-cellulosic materials where an intact water-repellent barrier, such as paint, stain or sealer, is not present


Preventative Treatment for Drywood Termites, Wood Boring Beetles and Fungi (Rot):

Apply when access to wooden structural components is optimized such as at the “dried-in” stage when sheathing and roofing are in place, yet before installation of insulation, wiring, plumbing and other mechanical components. Concentrate application in areas susceptible to attack, to include all sills, plates, floor joists, piers, girders and subfloors. See product label for full details. In areas where access is limited to 1 or 2 sides of a wood member including exterior wall base plates and any married studs, apply 2 coats of solution to the exposed surfaces. Allow first application to dry by waiting at least 20 minutes between applications.

Preventative Treatment for Drywood Termites and Powderpost Beetles:

Apply 1 coat of solution to the point of surface saturation to all structural wood surfaces using a brush, spray or mist. Apply 2 coats of solution to those surfaces where access is limited to 1 or 2 sides of structural wood members. Allow first application to dry by waiting at least 20 minutes between applications.


Boracare with Mold-Care should only be used on exterior wood that is then sealed.

DO NOT use to directly treat soil. Bora-Care solution provides only limited and temporary protection of wood in contact with the ground (see specific instructions) and is not a substitute for products registered for protection of wood in contact with the ground.

Treatment of Exterior Wood Surfaces Less Than Two Inches Thick such as Decks, Sheds

and Fences:

Apply only to bare wood or to wood surfaces where an intact water repellent or finish is not present. Remove paint or finish prior to application. Apply 1 coat of solution to the point of surface saturation to all wood surfaces. Apply 2 coats of solution to heavily infested areas and to those surfaces where access is limited to 1 or 2 sides of wood members. Allow first application to dry by waiting at least 20 minutes between applications. Do not apply in rain or snow. Do not expose treated exterior wood surfaces to rain or snow for at least 48 hours after treatment. If inclement weather is expected, protect exterior treated surfaces with a plastic tarp.

For longer performance, exterior wood surfaces that have been treated will require a top coating with a water-resistant finish such as paint or exterior stain. Apply the finish or topcoat within 6 weeks of treatment. It is important to allow treated wood to completely dry (at least 48 hours) before applying any protective topcoat.


Treats whole house or high-risk areas

A Bora-Care with Mold-Care treatment is a one-time preventative application that can be completed either during the new construction phase or applied post-construction in high-risk areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and crawl spaces.

Provides residual protection

Bora-Care with Mold-Care diffuses into wood and remains there for as long as the wood is in service, providing years of residual protection.

Creates a buffer zone

In an untreated home, flood damage can cause mold to grow within a week. The mold can be as devastating as the flood itself. Even in catastrophic conditions, Mold-Care will act as a retardant to mold growth, giving the homeowner more time to recover. It also disinfects and sanitizes, critical necessities in a water-damage situation. Inhibits the growth of mold Specifically designed to work with Bora-Care, Mold Care prevents the establishment of dry rot, wet rot and mold. Bora-Care adds additional residual protection against decay fungi and insect infestation. Bora-Care with Mold-Care can be applied to bare wood, plywood, particleboard, and oriented strand board (OSB). And it’s the best approach you can take against mold. Bora-Care with Mold-Care is designed to penetrate wood; it doesn’t just remain on the surface, but is absorbed into the interior of wood to protect it from the inside out.


*Clean surfaces with Mold-Clean before treatment to eliminate mold and fungus stains.

*BORACARE with MOLD-CARE will not treat active infestations of wood-destroying insects because the dilution rate of the finished solution is 5:1 rather than 1:1.

*Only dilute with warm water.

*Always pre-mix in a separate container before filling spray equipment.

*Use only on raw wood materials. Boracare products will not penetrate paint, stain, or sealants (though these products may be applied after Boracare applications are dry).

*An appropriate dye or colorant such as Turf Mark Blue Tablets may be added to the solution when diluting Bora-Care with water to make it easier to see where Bora-Care has been applied.

*Do not use or store near heat or open flame.

*Do not apply with foggers or similar equipment.

*Not labeled to be tank mixed with other products.
