Bleach does not eliminate mold growth.

A common misconception that we often hear when cleaning mold is that a bleach solution will take care of a mold problem. The truth is that in some cases, a bleach solution can only mask the problem and make it worse. Industry leaders have determined that bleach should not be used in mold remediation and is ineffective in mold removal. 

Remember, bleach only affects surface mold  If the area that you are working on is the slightest bit pourous, then you should never assume that you have eliminated the infestation completely. 

Some reminders why to contact a mold specialist:

  • A mold removal specialist will know what type of biocide will work best against the strain or stains of mold growing in your home.
  • A mold removal specialist will know what materials in your home can be cleaned and saved and which must be removed and replaced.
  • A mold removal specialist will have any special equipment needed to complete the mold removal job, including safety gear, respirator masks, vacuums with HEPA filters, and negative air machines.
  • A mold removal specialist will know how to handle mold safely and to prevent the spread of mold spores to other areas of your home.
