Simple Tips on How to Get Rid of Mold

Filed Under: Black Mold Information

A mold is actually a fungus which yields casual growth on different kinds of decaying or damp surfaces. It eats any organic matter. It may be green, white, black, slimy, or fuzzy. Inside and/or outside the house, it is commonly seen in clusters; these are harmful to the health, are unsightly, and are accident triggers (for example, sliding or slipping when stepped on).

Molds generally grow quite fast in the bathroom, in the kitchen sink, around the windows, on outside walls, on carpets, etc. How to get rid of mold is easy with either a commercially-available cleaner or simply with vinegar. Certain brands in the market offer various mold cleaners, mold killers, and even mold prevention products such as hygrometers (humidity meters).

There are three general steps in getting rid of such molds. Firstly, assessment on what types of molds are there should be done. Then, the entire mold-infested space should be sprayed with an appropriate strong mold cleaner, bleach, or vinegar. Finally, capping off with a matching mold killer is advisable. Secondly, the involved area must be dried to remove sources since moisture promotes their growth. Thirdly and lastly, having a unit of air purifier will be of big help.

Prevention of any type of these harmful molds may be done by frequent cleaning and drying of ‘prone’ areas, by throwing away unusable, small porous materials where they are most inclined to multiply, and by maintaining specific indoor humidity levels which are low enough to prohibit their growth. But sometimes, even with regular following of these preventive measures, molds still sprout. Hence, it is best to be prepared by knowing how to get rid of them, and by finding out what specific product’s to use.
