It's suitable on surfaces such as concrete, pavers, stone walls, colorbond, stencil/stamped concrete, roof tiles, hard court tennis courts, synthetic grass, tiles, terracotta, bricks, sandstone and granosite.

The mould spores are the reproductive particle of moulds. They are always present in the air in both indoor and outdoor environments. They can't be 100% eliminated but they can be reduced. The most important step in preventing mould from returning is to treat the moisture problem. If there is moisture or humidity mould will return, even on clean and treated surfaces.
There is no product that can 100% guarantee mould on a surface will be eliminated forever. In a nutshell, moisture and the tiny mould spores that love moisture, together promote mould growth. Mould spores are the reproductive particle of moulds. Whether it's indoors or outdoors, mould spores are always floating around in the air. They can't be 100% eliminated, but they can be reduced to manageable levels.
After effectively cleaning the mould from the surface using a product like iDestroy there are 2 critical steps to ensure mould doesn't come back. These 2 steps are what sets a professional mould treatment process apart.
1. Use an effective antimicrobial treatment like Disso throughout the spaces after cleaning. 2. Eliminate any moisture problems. Remember that includes humidity and air quality.
No, cleaning vinegar is not the most effective mould remover however it is non-toxic and relatively safe to use. So-called experts and some government departments love recommending white cleaning vinegar diluted 3:1, 4:1 or 5:1 for mould removal. XO2 manufactures cleaning vinegar, and while it's technically better than using nothing, we don't recommend it for professional mould or flood clean-ups. According to research and the advice of our microbiologists, vinegar has NOT been sufficiently substantiated as being effective against mould. It is not recognised by the TGA for this type of application. In humid conditions, the water component of a vinegar solution could even further worsen a moisture problem. Keep in mind that vinegar does not function as a surfactant (bleach doesn't either) which means it will not help by itself with the physical removal of fungal material from surfaces.
