We recently moved from California to Utah into a home that was built in the 1880s. It wasn't until I was deep cleaning that I realized there were some serious mold issues!! I got some samples and had them tested. There were several strains of mold, common and not-so-common.
We'd moved to an area that had no other homes available for rent, and I was panicked. I'm extremely sensitive to mold, having been "poisoned" by black mold about 10 years ago. There was nowhere else to go while our new home is being built.
I immediately got out my Thieves Cleaner, Thieves Oil, Diffuser, rubber gloves, and face mask! I sprayed the Thieves Cleaner straight onto the affected areas and just left it for several hours. I began diffusing Thieves Oil and did so for the next 48 hours. In the basement, where there was a lot of mildew and mold, I sprayed a mixture of Thieves Oil, Thieves Cleaner, and grain alcohol directly onto the brick walls. Then I left the house to rest.
The next day when I came back, the black mold in the cupboards that had been so unsightly had almost disappeared! I sprayed the affected areas again, soaking liberally, and wiped them down after a few minutes. The mold is gone! In the basement, the same thing had happened. I resprayed with my mixture and it is also GONE!
I coaxed the carpet cleaner to use my Thieves Cleaner instead of his citrus stuff (which I have an allergy to). He reluctantly did so and was thrilled and amazed at how clean the carpets were. I was so happy because they were disinfected, smelled great, and are so soft now.
I continue to diffuse Thieves, Purification, and Eucalyptus a couple of times a week. The mold issues are gone. I can breathe without any problems. I LOVE THIS STUFF!!
