How do I get rid of mold?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions we have. It normally comes after we have performed our mold testing and inspection services at a home that has been the victim of some type of water damage. The hope is for a simple answer or a quick fix, but when it comes to mold, that’s just not an option. Even dead mold spores may still cause allergic reactions in some people. It is not enough to simply kill the mold, it must be removed. Now that you are familiar with the basics of Mold, we can cover a few common mold myths and facts, below.
MYTH: Bleach kills mold
FACT: Bleach does NOT kill mold
No really, we’re not pulling your leg! The EPA clearly states, “the use of a biocide, such as chlorine bleach, is not recommended as a routine practice during mold remediation…” (epa.gov). Bleach will NOT kill mold, especially when growing in porous materials like drywall and wood. Bleach simply removes the discoloration you see but it will leave the microflora intact, which guarantees that the mold will return in exactly the same spot at some point in the future.
Maintaining a relative humidity level between 30 – 50 percent, can easily ensure that there will not be any mold growth within that space.
MYTH: A little bit of Mold is nothing to worry about
FACT: If you can see mold growing in your home, you already have a significant problem
Much like an iceberg, it’s not what you can see, it’s what you can’t. Mold is opportunistic, so it must wait for the opportunity to grow. To do so, this means that it must increase its chances of encountering water. Mold does so by ‘rooting’ deeply into organic materials. Visually eliminating mold does not remove the roots, the health-hazardous spores, or the opportunity for complete elimination. No amount of mold is “okay.”
