Have mold in your home or office? We are here to tell you how to get rid of that mold yourself or how to get a professional to do it for you!
Mold is not only unattractive to have in your home or office but it is very dangerous. Spores reproducing on counters, walls, or wood trim can be a danger to those with asthma, allergies and other respiratory issues. Spores can also ruin the drywall, carpet and woodwork of your home and office. Below are a few ways to remove mold from your home and office:
- Know where mold thrives.
Spores that form mold love areas with an abundance of moisture. Be ready to check areas that get and stay wet such as bathrooms, kitchens, exterior doors and basements. In bathrooms, spores grow because of poor ventilation. Spores in bathrooms are usually discovered on shower ceilings and tile grout lines. Spores in basements can be discovered near hot water heaters and sump pumps. As for kitchens and exterior doors, spores are discovered anywhere moisture can hide.
- Know everyday solutions.
You can get rid of daily spore reproduction with soap and water. If you find a very stubborn form of mold, you can use a solution of 1:9 bleach and water. Once you place this bleach and water solution on the infected area, spray and wipe. Open a window or run a bathroom fan after a shower or bath. Dry sinks and tiles after washing dishes. Periodically clean and dry any areas of your basement that can easily reproduce spores because of moisture.
- Know when you have a huge mold problem.
If you have spores growing on your drywall, studs, and sub-flooring, you will need professional help to get rid of the mold. You will definitely need professional help when the area infected with spores exceeds 10 square feet. Both living and dead spores can be very dangerous, especially in vast numbers.
