Should You Use Bleach on Mold?

12/30/2021 (Permalink)

When you notice mold in your home or business, the first thing that comes to mind is how to remove it. Chlorine bleach has become one of the most common go-to's because it is quick and easily accessible. While the bleach does visibly remove the mold growth, is it really effective in mold remediation? 

The idea that bleach can help you completely get rid of mold is a common misconception. These production are marketed to make people believe this to be true. While bleach does help to wipe away microbial growth on non porous materials, it cannot do the same for things like wood or drywall. The growth spreads into the pores of the material, and though the color may change on the surface temporarily, it will return if not properly remediated. 

The best way to get rid of mold, is to call a professional to help. To get rid of mold completely, you must first find the root of the cause and fix the issue. Once the source of moisture has been addressed, the affected materials often need to be completely removed and then treated. 

If you are uncertain of how to address a mold issue, it is always best to call a professional. SERVPRO of Anderson has a skilled crew that are available 24/7 for services. Give us a call for any Mold Remediation services at (864)-224-0285.
