Mold Removal Products
It's tough to imagine there's a perfect match for a mold killer and a homeowner. But when it comes to finding the product that will work best for your space, the right chemistry is a necessity.
If the first thing you notice about your infestation is tiny black spots that lie on the surface of an area, then you are most likely to deal with the much nicer cousin of mold mildew. This problem can be easily nixed with a scrub brush and common household mildew spray that can be found in stores.
If the infestation is much larger, then special precautions will be necessary. Be sure to protect yourself by wearing gloves, a facemask and eye protection. Begin by removing any damaged materials, like rotted wood or ruined carpet. Treat the area with a biocide and disinfectant, like OxB biocide. Make any necessary repairs to the area and then allow it to completely dry. You may want speed up the process by using a fan.
If you would prefer to use a cleaner that is a bit milder and the infestation is small, then consider a natural mold and mildew killer. Many homeowners have found success by filling a spray bottle with solutions containing natural solvents, like Borax, tea tree oil or vinegar.
