Nobody likes to see mold in their home, and the first instinct is to grab the bleach or some other DIY product to kill it and remove it. However, this will likely do more harm than good. There is a great deal of misinformation on the Internet about mold remediation. Here are a few myths and the facts that dispel them.
Myth #1: Bleach kills mold.
Fact: Although bleach may kill mold spores if they are on a non-porous surface such as tile, it is completely ineffective on porous surfaces, such as drywall. Furthermore, if you use enough straight bleach to actually kill the mold, you will probably damage the surface, not to mention scatter other mold spores so they are spread throughout your home. In addition, bleach will not prevent the return of mold and, on some surfaces, may actually promote future mold growth.
Myth #2: Once the mold is dead, it is safe.
Fact: Dead mold spores are dangerous, too. They still contain toxins and allergens that can cause illness and should be properly removed.
Myth #3: Mold remediation companies don’t do anything I can’t do myself.
Fact: A professional mold remediation team is trained and experienced to safely remove mold using the proper techniques and equipment. While you could learn all this for yourself and purchase the necessary supplies and equipment, it would be very time-consuming and costly to do so. Short of that, you will not be successful at removing the mold effectively and safely.
