I think it's really great idea for removing any types of mold. I think we should clean it with clean cloth or scrub that affected area with using the brush.

Molds and mildew are harmful to our property as well as to our health. They produce chemical in the air that when inhaled can cause sickness or health problem. Thanks for sharing those tips in resolving molds issue.

The natural way to kill mold and to keep it at bay, is to use straight vinegar in a bottle. Or use Hydrogen peroxide on it. You can put Hydrogen peroxide in a spray bottle also. Or just pour the vinegar or peroxide on straight on it if you are worried about spores flying through the air. Kills it right away.

Oh and grape seed extract also kills mold. Here is a great tip with that:

20 drops grapefruit seed extract

2 cups water

[B]Combine in a spray bottle, shake to blend, and spray on problem areas and do not rinse!


Inhaling all that strong bleach is just as bad for your health as the mold!

Great tips! It's also good to check any other common sources of moisture such as roof leaks in the attic, plumbing leaks, crawl spaces, as well as bathrooms and kitchens.

First of all dry up the area experiencing mold as molds are only promoted due to presence of moisture. Wear gloves and with the help of abrasive sponge remove mold growths and spray disinfectant in that area.

Mold problems are generally caused due to leak that has not been dried yet. Molds donít look good. Usually they grow in areas like kitchens, bathrooms, and basements etc that are moist. If moisture will remain at a place for longer time span, it will develop mold. But it is true that a healthy home should not contain molds. You can remove it on your own with the help of a number of disinfectants available.

Mold is a very distressing thing to look, and it can also disturb the looks of our house, so if you have these kinds of issues you need to take any action instantly. One factor you need to understand about Mold is that they like freezing atmosphere a lot.

Ya i agree with you but some times molds are not directly visible, in such cases you can smell them molds have a musty smell. If this smell is strong and is present for quite a few days then you must contac a flood cleanup restoration expert to do the mold remdiation work. These molds can create serious health troubles for you.

Any unchallenged water damages are going to harbor the potential for ongoing structural damage as well as mold growth. This is why it is so important to be extremely thorough when making restorations.

how to remove mold after water damage

Black mold develops from moisture and dampness. To avoid the promotion of mold, keep your home free of moisture buildup. If you have damp areas in your home, dry the areas within 24 to 48 hours to prevent mold growth. Eliminate wet and damp areas in the home by reducing indoor humidity to 30 to 60 percent. If you find mold developing, clean the surfaces with detergent, disinfectant and water. Materials that are porous and absorbent may require replacement, as the mold can develop inside these materials as well.

It is important to remove mold from the basement as soon as possible and to keep the basement dry to prevent any further mold formation. There are some steps mentioned below to remove mold from basement.
  1. Check out the basement and find out the sources of water which causes the moisture. These can range from leaking pipes, a washing machine, high humidity, or water seeping in through the floors or walls. Resolve the water problem that making your basement wet.
  2. Mold can also grow on the things like boxes, furniture, rugs or anything wooden. If you find any like these remove it from the basement.
  3. Scrape off visible mold with a spatula. Remember wear glows and mask when you are removing it. Place mold in heavy-duty garbage bags and remove these bags to the nearest exit.
  4. You can use a non-metallic spatula if mold has formed on wood paneling in order to avoid scratching the wood.
  5. After cleaning mold which is visible easily and can be cleaned now itís the time to clean the things properly to prevent any further mold formation. Prepare a solution with chlorine bleach in water mixed with laundry detergent. You should add a cup of bleach and one-half of detergent for each gallon if the surface is of concrete. For the wood paneling it is preferred to try a weaker solution with very little amount of bleach and detergent.
  6. First apply on a small portion to evaluate if there is any adverse effect. Apply this with sponge or spray.
  7. Now with a sponge or brush scrub the mold. Do not use brush for the wood paneling.
  8. Clean the area with water once and evaluate if it needs further treatment or not. If needed then again apply the solution and make it clean.
  9. Dry out the area properly. You can use rag or fan for that. Make the arrangement of proper ventilation so the area dried out properly.
  10. Check the basement area frequently to prevent the future mold formation. Apply proper treatment time to time and maintain the place dry.
Thanks for your post.

Very useful tips advised to keep the basement protected, though any unused place can get effected by the formation of molds, which sometimes gets tedious task while removing it. But Janitorial Supply offer good range of chemical for any type of mold removal with ease, also it eliminates the molds from its root. If cost of the kits or solution is concerned that then i must say it is the most economical among the rest.

A little application of this liquid which is followed by scrapping or wiping with a sponge, may easily remove mold fungus. However, if the infected area is much larger and is more severe in nature, then professional help will be required.
