Black Mold on Wall with Brush, Rubber Gloves and Bottle

Best Way to Remove Mold

There are many DIY ways to get rid of mold from your home. This will include Porous and non-Porous surfaces. This kind of DIY project will require Disposable Gloves (rubber) and Mask, Empty Spray Bottle, Sponge, Paper Towels or Rag, Brush and a Empty Bucket.

When finished put gloves, mask, sponge and paper towels in a garbage bag and get it out of your house. If mold has gotten in behind your walls and deep into your carpets you will have a bigger project that might require Mold Remediation.

Here are Four DIY Mold Removal Tips;

  1. Fill up an empty spray bottle with Distilled White Vinegar (do not dilute) and spray it on the mold and leave it for 1 hour than wipe off with Sponge or paper towel. Vinegar works well on porous (soft) surfaces.
  2. Take one cup of Bleach (any bleach) and add it to one gallon of water in your bucket. Then put this mixture in spray bottle and apply. Wipe off with sponge or paper towel. Bleach works well on non-porous (hard) surfaces.
  3. Take Hydrogen Peroxide (3% concentration) and add it to an empty spray bottle and spray on mold and leave it for 10 minutes. Than scrub all mold and stains until gone, then wipe surface clean after.
  4. Add one cup of Borax to one gallon of water in your bucket. Use mixture and scrub away all mold and stains. Wipe clean or when dry vacuum with hepa vacuum cleaner.

Note! Do Not mix Bleach and Ammonia together, it will create Chlorine Gas.

Mold Spores

Mold will release spores that get airborne and if inhaled can cause respiratory and cognitive health problems with people with Mold Allergies.

According to some experts indoor mold and spores can be killed on all surfaces by using bleach (1) and others say without water mold will die but the spores do not. They will regenerate their colonies if water returns (2).
