I have recently completed renovations of a house that had "horrific" black mold problems in a wet and neglected basement area. In my quest to find commercial products to address the problem, I discovered a product sold by SWISH. It is called "Quato 44" (yes no "r"). It is a concentrate used by professional cleaning firms. It is a fungicide in addition to destroying viruses and bacteria. It also destroys residual odours. I'm sorry if I sound like a manufacturers "rep" but it really works like a charm!!

Cheers....Bill

My wife and I will be starting "full timing" in our recently purchased 1999 Georgie Boy Pursuit at the end of November.

Please remember that all molds that are black are not the dreaded "Black Mold" Stachybotrys or Stachybotrys atra (chartarum) nor can you tell by simply looking at it (need a microscope for starters).

scroll down this page and you will find a section on Molds & Flooding including an EPA Fact Sheet on cleanup

Hi Lorna,I don't know what it is but My asthma doesn't realy like it,whatever it is.The home is for sale as parts.The list is so darn long I can't move because I'd trip and fall and really make my day! I'm gonna be looking for two things,1 A Scamp fifth-wheel that is looking for a new owner. maybe an older model{80's}.
2 A nice rebuildable 80's pick-up with a 6.2 diesel or a 6.5 diesel.I like the chevys and GMC'S from that era.I can't remember if they had the diesel in a half ton? One of the companys I used to work for had about five of them. Mine had over 130,000 miles on it when I let it go.They gave me a new ford with the 6.9,not bad,but it was a 4-speed and the chevy had a automatic.The chevy got almost 20 mpg and that ford...14mpg...empty!I'm going to be looking for one like that old Chevy!As long as I live,I got all the time in the world
Talk to ya all later, Dan

Hi, Scamp is not in business right now and they are one of the few plants that did not use dealers.
I am going to try a chemical in the motorhome and let it sit for awile and come back next summer or fall to open it up.I'm going to pull the heads and see if I can figure out what is going on with the engine. I've had two posts elsewhere saying to pull the heads and check for foreign objects in one of the pistons.I will check that out too before we leave.
Will post what we find,if anything. I've never had any luck much other than bad and this smells like bad to me. My wife doesn't want to sale the home so we took the ad off.I'm going to have a Big job ahead of me.I'm not to sure if i'm up to the work or not but I won't have much else to do except go fishing and I'd rather be fishing anyway!
I will let you know next year if this stuff works. Dan
