Mould Control: Gelair Soln vs. Chlorine Bleach vs. Vinegar

What is Mould?

Mould is a kind of fungus that contains small organisms found almost anywhere. They can be purple, white, orange, green, or black.

Small amounts of Mould spores are generally harmless, but when they settle on a damp spot in your house, they can start to grow.

Moulds are widespread in homes and buildings. Mould grows faster in areas with plenty of moisture such as windows, pipes, roofs, bathrooms, and even in your aircon units. Mould can also grow in paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall,
appliances, kitchens, fabric, and upholstery.

Mould can be indoors and outdoors, and it can enter your house through open windows, vents, doorways, heating, and aircon systems. Mould in the air can also be carried indoors by attaching itself to shoes, clothing, and pets.

What Are the Harmful Effects of Mould to People?

People who are exposed to Mouldy environments complain sneezing, nasal congestion, cough, wheeze, respiratory infections, and worsen asthma and allergic
conditions.

How to Stop Moulds Using Gelair?

Gelair products are the simplest way to stop Mould and bacteria that infest your
bathroom, kitchens, aircon units, and many more. For over two decades, Gelair provides solutions to Mould and bacteria build up in homes and buildings. Using
Australian grown and distilled Tea Tree Oil as the main ingredient in all
Gelair™ products.

Only the most excellent Tea Tree Oil is used in Gelair™ products, with every batch meticulously tested for quality. Australian Tea Tree Oil is a potent broad-spectrum anti-microbial and anti-fungal agent, killing Mould and bacteria (including Legionella) and viruses.
Gelair vs. Bleach

Gelair Soln vs. Chlorine Bleach:


  • Gelair will not produce white-bleached spots where there is over spray. It can be used on any surface, except on some plastics.
  • Tea tree oil has a very high boiling point and will stay in‐sit for a long time (days). Chlorine vaporizes quickly.
  • Chlorine will cause corrosion to metals. The chloride will cause corrosion of metals and even stainless steel.
  • Chlorine has an odor that people do not like, whereas tea tree oil has a pleasant scent.
  • Many people are allergic to chlorine.
  • Chlorine often causes people to have an asthmatic attack.
  • Chlorine is highly alkaline and is a serious safety hazard – if you accidentally
    spray it into the eyes, it can cause severe/permanent eye damage.
  • Chlorine will attack many materials.
  • Ever wonder why you bleached the moulds out and it's back again after a few days? Chlorine bleach decolourizes and kills mould on the surface but does not penetrate porous surfaces to kill the roots of the mould.
  • Gelair Tea Tree Oil Spray is specially formulated to penetrate porous surfaces and kills the mould at its roots. Spraying Gelair Tea Tree Oil Spray on tile grouts prevent mould from growing back for up to 12 weeks.
Gelair vs Vinegar

Gelair Soln vs. Vinegar:

  • Vinegar only works because of its acidity.
  • It would help if you got liquid vinegar directly onto the Mould. It will not treat Mould, which is hidden.
  • Vinegar does not kill all types of moulds, bacteria, and viruses.
  • Vinegar is the cheapest safe acid to use.
  • Vinegar has a strong unpleasant smell, and some people hate the smell of vinegar.
  • Vinegar is much more volatile than Tea Tree Oil (TTO), so it will disappear nearly at the same rate as water, whereas Tea Tree Oil (TTO) will exist on a surface for a long time.
  • Vinegar does not penetrate materials as well as tea tree oil.
