Having mold growing in your home is not an ideal situation. Far from it, the presence of that nasty fungus can be very troublesome: it can ruin your belongings, eat away at your house, and cause water damage. Still, if despite your best efforts to prevent mold growth in your home, you've found it on your walls, ceiling or floors, you can follow the steps below to clean it off.

How to Get Rid of Mold

Evaluate

Before you begin, perform a quick inspection round in which you consider the damage done and decide if you'll take care of it, or if you'll require professional mold remediation in Richmond.

Gather

For this project, you'll need to gather a few cleaning supplies, like bleach, water, sponges, a spray bottle, plastic covers, protective gear, towels, a fan, paint and paint brushes.

Beware

Mold can damage your home and health. However, if not handled carefully, bleach can be harmful too. To stay safe, use protective gear, open the windows/doors of the room you'll be working in, and cover the furniture nearby to prevent any mishaps.

Clean

Now for the good part! To kill off that disgusting mold, mix water with a  tiny bit of bleach in the spray bottle. Then, apply enough of the mixture onto the mold, and scrub vigorously with a sponge to get rid of the fungus.

Dry

As you may know by now, mold thrives in humid places and damp spots. Absorb the excess moisture with a towel, turn on the air conditioner and fans, as well as open doors and windows to keep mold growth at bay in your home.

Fix

This last tip is all about making your home good as new again. Notice the previously affected area and search for any moldy spots or discoloration on it. If you find some, paint it over so that mold problem is left behind.
