How To Remove Mold And Prevent It From Coming Back
If your home has leaks from cracks in the foundation or basement walls, you’ve probably dealt with mold growth to some degree. You are probably aware of the health risks of allowing mold to grow unchecked, but may not be sure how to get rid of it and keep it from returning. In this post, we’ll look at the way to get rid of this unwelcome guest and make sure it stays gone.
The best way to be rid of mold is to never have it in the first place. The way to accomplish this is to prevent the conditions that allow mold to grow. Mold thrives in a moist, dark environment. The most common places these conditions occur are in your basement and in the bath or shower stall. Regularly cleaning your bath or shower with bleach will kill any spores that may be present, and prevent mold from regrowing for several days. A solution of one cup of bleach per gallon of water should be sufficient to decontaminate any non-porous surface such as tile. But for porous surfaces, or a large contaminated area, you may need to call in a professional mold remediation service such AA Action Waterproofing.
What Is Mold Remediation And Why You Need It
If the area to be decontaminated is too large to clean yourself, or the mold is growing on a porous surface like wood or drywall, you’ll probably want to have an expert remove to make sure the job is done properly and most importantly, to ensure the mold doesn’t return. AA Action Waterproofing can decontaminate your home, and take measures to prevent the conditions that caused it to occur in the first place.
