So you’ve discovered some mold, what do you do next? Many experts say that if the mold is less than ten square feet, you can clean it up yourself, although if you think it could be a toxic type of mold then it is still best to call in an expert such as us, iMold.
If you think you can clean it up yourself, the important thing would be to clean the mold as soon as you see it. This includes the black fungus that grows in between your shower tiles and mold that grows on food. The State of Florida recommends that you use water and mild soap to clean it up. You could also use a specified mold or mildew cleaner, but mold experts do not recommend using bleach in most cases. However, the state of Florida does recommend using bleach after the mold has already been cleaned up in places where immune deficient people live. This is because their bodies are especially susceptible to fungal infections. When you are cleaning mold you need to wear gloves and goggles to protect yourself from mycotoxins.
Though it can seem attractive to try to clean up mold yourself, it’s always best to call in a professional. We here at iMold are certified by the state as contractors, mold remediators and mold inspectors.
