We do not recommend handling mold by yourself. Hiring a professional mold remediation service to get rid of mold is the only way to ensure maximum safety. While there is no substitute for hiring cleaning professionals to handle mold inside your home, if you absolutely must do it yourself, be sure to wear goggles, gloves, and a HEPA face mask. This will protect you before spraying your solution of choice directly on the mold so it comes into contact with the spores. Before beginning, the truth regarding one mold cleaning myth needs to be cleared up.

Can I Bleach Mold or Is That a Myth?

Contrary to what you might have heard, bleach can actually make mold damage worse. So yes, trying to get rid of mold by using bleach is definitely a myth. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends you do not utilize bleach to fight mold unless the circumstance is a unique one involving application by a professional.

Does Vinegar Kill Mold?

We get asked all the time if vinegar can kill mold. The answer is yes, vinegar is often used to successfully get rid of mold, and this is how we recommend getting rid of mold in your home.

5 Steps To Kill The Mold:
  1. Get an inexpensive plastic spray bottle.
  2. Fill an empty spray bottle with some white distilled vinegar.
  3. Spray the areas visibly infected with mold, and then leave it applied for around an hour or so as the mild acidity breaks down the spores.
  4. Next, use a rag or paper towel to scrub down the mold, which should wipe away.
  5. Apply some water to finish clearing off all substances. After drying, the smell of the vinegar will go away.
If Mold Persists, Call A Professional

If you’ve followed these 5 simple steps, you may have successfully gotten rid of mold in your home. Of course, if problems persist or you’re worried there is still mold hidden out of plain sight, get in touch with professionals such as COIT to handle the complete remediation. End Of Article
