My grow room is very damp and now i have got a mold problem, i bought a dehumidifier and the moisture is almost all gone but now i am scared about this mold. Some of my plants have died and many have mold. Is there some solution to rid the basement of mold like a machine or some kind of thing that kills the mold so it does not come back? Thank you!

You have a few options available to you...

1) Sulfur Burner - http://www.bghydro.com/BGH/Itemdesc.asp?ic=PCSV&eq=&Tp=
As long as you haven't used any oil based products on your plants, this option is the best available. The results are fast and outstanding.

2) SM90 - http://www.bghydro.com/BGH/Itemdesc.asp?ic=NEGSM9032&eq=&Tp=
Use as a weekly foliar spray, this is one of the most commonly used methods for mildew control. If you use this product you cannot use a Sulfur Burner.

3) Serenade - http://www.bghydro.com/BGH/Itemdesc.asp?ic=PCSERC32&eq=&Tp=
This is another great organic product registered for powdery mildew control. Again, weekly applications will be required.

4) Ozone - http://www.bghydro.com/BGH/Itemdesc.asp?ic=AOCBBAB&eq=&Tp=
This product is popular for restricting the spread of mildew spores. The ozone will kill all airborne spores that it comes into contact with.

5) Once your current crop has been harvested you will need to bleach the entire grow room. This includes walls, roof, floor and lighting fixtures. This will kill any spores that may be lying in wait. This is highly recommended after every crop. Also try and clean the intake air as many spores will be coming from outside.

Will that ozone generator harm the plant's and can humans be in the room with it? I thought that high levels of ozone can be harmful to humans and plants? How many of those balls would i need for about 2000sq feet of space? Can i run those sulfur burners with plants in the room or will it harm them? Thank you for your knowlegeable help!!
