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.
They re really great mold removal ideas, I mostly use bleach to remove mold.

If your house has been in a flood, I think you should contact a mold remediation company or water damage specialist who performs clean ups of flooded homes. This way you can be sure that all mold problems will be properly taken care of. You will also have the peace of mind of knowing that your home will be completely safe to continue living in after it has been professionally remediated.

Cool

My wife and I just discovered some mold in our home and need to get rid of it as soon as we can! We will be following your article to the letter, and will start by eliminating the source of the moisture, and then get a professional in to make sure that everything is okay. This is really important to us too, since we have smaller children in our home with us.

I really enjoyed reading your post and the images that you have used are too good. Like you list, I need to do this in my home. I think one of the hardest things to do is pull out mold, mildew and gunk from in between the tiles in the bathroom.

Love to hear more from you

Thank you for the tips man, great information.

My old basement had mold in it, so we just moved... lol.

It can be a real pain if you don't deal with it.

I had some mold on a wood panelling wall. It did not eat into it yet apparently as I wiped it off with lemon juice. Later a similar attempt did not work as well.

Apply H2O2 throughout the entire surface. It will seep deep the floor and walls while killing all the mold and mildew.

Actually, Chlorine bleach doesn't kill mold, it's a myth.

Up until Hurricane Katrina, FEMA was even passing out bleach to kill the mold... but guess what since then they've taken down any info saying it doesn't in fact kill it.

This is because of Oregon State University and a few other Universities doing studies and finding that bleach in fact doesn't kill all mold.

There are a few products on the market that do kill mold, ones I use are Biocide and VitalOxide, but it all depend son the type of mold you have.

Have a mold problem? Check out my blog: LookMold.com

Mold can be harmful. There are many ways to get rid of it which use everyday household products that you probably already have. To begin with, youíll need a scrub brush, rubber gloves to protect your hands and a spray bottle. You can use products like bleach, borax, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, etc. Spray or apply it to the mold. Wait for 10-15 minutes and wipe with a rag or scrub appropriately. However, if the mold spread over a larger area, it's always better to call in a professional.
