Household Products That Can Remove Mold

Mold can pop up out of nowhere and be pesky when it comes to removing it. If it’s not treated quickly though, it can lead to damage in the home, requiring mold damage repair in Fort Myers. The good news with mold too is if it is treated fast enough, it can usually be taken care of with common household products. Let’s take a look at some common household products that can remove mold.

Bleach

Bleach can kill virtually every species of indoor mold that it comes into contact with, along with its spores. Bleach is only effective though if the mold is growing on non-porous materials such as tiles, bathtubs, glass, and countertops. If used on porous materials, the bleach will remove the mold on the surface but the roots within the material will remain and the mold will soon return.

VinegarCleaning carpet with household products

Vinegar is a mild acid which can kill 82% of mold species. It’s non-toxic and doesn't give off dangerous fumes like bleach does. Vinegar can also be used to prevent mold growing on surfaces.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is a great household cleaner. It’s also an effective mold remover. Unlike other mold killers which contain harsh chemicals, baking soda is mild and harmless to your family and any pets.
