Fighting Mold Problems

We have had ongoing mold problems with our small fiberglass trailer after retreiving it from indoor but dampish winter storage each year.
Spring ritual has been wash and scrub all surfaces, nooks and crannies, many times to get it back to it's no mold condition once again. (Lots of water used and lots of "power".)
For the last 2 years we have used a new technique that has been amazingly sucessful.
It involves using a product called "Concrobium Moldcontrol" found in places like Home Depot and Canadian Tire.
What is best about using this product is that you spray it on a surface, let it sit and wipe off to dissolve the mold and wipe it clean (not usually much heavy rubbing and no water)THEN you spray an even layer on the surfaces and let it dry but NOT wipe it off. This dry layer prevents mold from returning to that surface.
It can be used in the house, RV, etc. But maybe best of all is the fact that it is advertised as "no bleach, no ammonia, no VOCs and 100% natural"
As a person who has chemical sensativities and limited in cleaning products I can use, I can definitely vouch for what seems to be a very safe product. I sprayed some of this stuff by accident in my eye (I have the clumsy gene) and it was FINE...no pain, sting or after effects.
And now, for 2 years, spring cleanup with the fiberglass trailer has been some spot cleaning for a little mold, but no big deal.
