Can Bleach Be Used to Kill Mold?

4/5/2021 (Permalink)

Green mold growing on drywall Mold Remediation

This is a very common question and the answer is yes and no! Bleach can very well be effective on mold for a quick fix if anyone is dealing with a minor mold infestation smaller than 10 square feet. 

Bleach can kill mold that grows on non porous surfaces like counter tops, glass, and bathtubs. It's the porous materials like wood, carpets, and drywall that can be a problem.

You see, bleach isn't able to penetrate these surfaces. This will then cause the surface mold to be killed, tricking people to believe that the bleach worked. Next thing you know the mold starts to regrow because the bleach can't fully penetrate these porous materials. This then causes confusion for most people doing the remediation on their own and end up calling for a professional opinion.

Using Natural Chemicals For Mold Removal is Key.

SERVPRO of Redondo/Manhattan Beach has always used safe natural chemicals for mold mitigation. We follow the EPA protocols on using safe natural chemicals. The reason SERVPRO doesn't use bleach is because bleach is highly corrosive, it deteriorates materials and fibers which is never good!

If you need a professional opinion on your mold issues, please don't hesitate to call us and ask us questions as we are always here to help.

Attic Mold

SERVPRO Cargo Truck Arriving For Inspection Inspecting properties for mold

Over 50% of houses have mold in their attics and homeowners have no idea. Most homeowners share the same reaction and concern, What type of mold is it? SERVPRO of Redondo/ Manhattan Beach can save you extra money in repair costs or even prevent you from being unable to sell your home on the market when dealing with mold.

Being Proactive is Key

Being a property owner its your responsibility to be proactive and inspect places in your home that are not usually inspected on the regular. Leaving mold unnoticed is a dangerous gamble for homeowners and very cost effective.

What Causes Attic Mold?

Poor ventilation can lead to condensation in your attic causing mold to build up and feed on. The water vapor in your property must go somewhere, and if it's not ventilated properly outdoors, you can end up with gathered moisture in your attic. You can get attic mold in warm or cold weather, always good to check for mold in your attic a couple times a year.

One of the most common causes of attic mold is a bathroom fan or dryer vent that runs directly to the attic. Directing the air straight to the attic is a red flag. Always avoid doing this if you're a homeowner. Feel free to reach out to us on any questions at (310) 939-9293.
