Is It Possible To Remove Mold With Bleach?


Mahwah NJ Mold Removal With BleachYes, bleach can clean up mold that is on hard surfaces where it’s visible. But, you can’t clean drapery, rugs or upholstered furniture with bleach. You can not remove the invisible mold that floats in your air with bleach either. Bleach can clean mold off countertops, floors and walls, provided they are surfaces that can withstand the power of bleach. It’s the mold that lingers in the air that may cause allergic reactions or illness.

The best way to eliminate mold in your home is to have a certified mold testing service, such as Mold Testing NJ-NY inspect and test for it. If the mold growth is extensive, the testing service will recommend remediation. Then you need a professional mold removal service.


What Else Can Remove Mold?


In addition to bleach, vinegar can also be used to clean mold off non-porous surfaces. Neither of these can clean up the mold that floats in the air and is invisible. This is generally the type of mold that causes illness. Air-borne mold requires inspection and testing by a mold testing professional.
