Is Bleach A Way To Clean Up Mold?


Mahwah NJ Mold Testing ServiceCan you remove mold with bleach? Yes and no. Bleach can remove mold that is visible on hard surfaces such as countertops, floors, and walls. You can’t remove mold from porous surfaces such as rugs, drapery and upholstered furniture with bleach. You also can’t clean up the mold that lingers in the air with bleach. The best way to eliminate mold in your home is to have a professional service test for it, and then have it removed. Mold Testing NJ-NY is the most prominent service in Bergen County NJ that tests for mold and then recommends remediation when deemed necessary.


Are There Other Ways To Clean Up Mold?


As stated, bleach can clean up mold on surfaces where it is visible. Vinegar can also be used to clean non-porous surfaces where mold has formed. Neither of these agents can clean up the mold in the air that you cannot see. This is the dangerous mold that can cause illness. The non-visible mold that is hanging around in the environment of your home is the type that needs to be found and tested for.
