Mold could be anywhere. In fact, it could even survive in space. And here’s a proof.
According to a report from nbcnews.com, a space cargo ship was suspected to have been infected by mold. As a result, when it reached the International Space Station, it was opened a day late than scheduled.
The space craft questioned for mold presence was particularly the Albert Einstein Automated Transfer Vehicle or (ATV)-4. An unmanned space ship, it was designated to deliver science equipments, spare parts and food and clothing for the crew in the space station.
However, it was said that the Russian management was dissatisfied with the decontamination procedures done on the vehicle before its take off. Hence, when (ATV)-4 docked at the space station on Saturday, it wasn’t opened until Tuesday when all the bags inside were wiped down with fungicide.

“It doesn’t take an Einstein to see that international differences can still crop up on the final frontier: Take the case of the European Space Agency’s Einstein cargo craft, for example. Russian concerns about some potentially moldy cargo bags caused a holdup in the schedule for unloading seven tons of supplies.
The Albert Einstein Automated Transfer Vehicle linked up with the International Space Station on Saturday, delivering a payload that included scientific experiments, clothing, spare parts and an assortment of European-style goodies such as tiramisu and lasagne.”

Mold could grow and spread very fast. And because the International Space Station hasn’t been immune from it, it is understandable why the Russians are so keen about cleaning the space cargo ship from its possible presence.
But if mold could thrive even in space, then surely, it could also grow in your place. Even if you don’t see it, it could already be risking your health.
Hence, you must always be alert and ready to do a mold removal treatment. That way, you could stop the infestation early, save your health from serious mold risks, spare your house from major damages and avoid big mold remediation expense.
Before you could do a mold removal though, you first need to find where the infestation is. And with that, you would need the help of mold symptoms such as dark circular stains and musty smell.
Additionally, you would need a mold spray to do a prompt mold remediation. Out of the many mold removal products though, Molderizer and Safe Shield are the best ones you could get. Molderizer could effectively kill mold faster than bleach and Safe Shield could provide mold protection to items and surfaces for up to four months.
Both mold cleaning and protection sprays are also made with organic ingredients. And so, the use of them doesn’t pose any threat to your health and the environment.
