Mold is one of the important causes for poor indoor air quality. Since, mold has the ability to thrive in different climatic conditions; it is always difficult to get rid of molds completely from the home. Ordinary cleaning methods implemented by homeowners for mold removal might be able to control mold growth but will not remove the molds effectively.

If you are planning to carry out the mold removal process, you need to identify the places of its existence. Usually, molds are found in damp places such as leaking pipes, sink, showers, air conditioners, basement and other damp places. Mold remediation companies detect the existence of the mold using some signs such as musty odor, discoloration on the walls and small black patches.

After determining the places of its existence, you need to identify the mold variety since for removing toxic black mold you might need protective shields such as gloves, protective eye wear and face mask. It is estimated that more than 100 types of lung problems and even bleeding are caused due to toxic enzyme emitted by black molds.

It is difficult to identify the mold variety without proper testing and equipments. To detect the mold variety, you can take some samples and send it for testing centers or else you can hire a mold inspection specialist to carry out the testing process effectively. After determining the toxicity of the mold, you need to plan your removal process.

Some effective removal strategies that are used widely for mold removal are listed below:

- If there is mold growth in carpet or curtains, you need to double wrap the carpets using plastic and dispose them properly.

- When you encounter small patches of molds, you can make use of soap and water to clean them. But, make sure all the patches are cleaned thoroughly.

- If you need to remove mold covering a few square feet, you need to wear the protective shields to protect your hand, eye and respiratory tract. Before, starting the mold removal process make sure the room has enough ventilation to reduce the musty odor of the mold.

- If there is less ventilation, you need to use a fan for better air circulation. You can find a wide range of products such as bleach, borax, ammonia, vinegar, baking soda and more for removing mold. Among all these products, bleach is used commonly. However, don’t use ammonia because it is found to cause a fuming gas after reacting with the mold enzyme.

These are some simple strategies through which you might be able to remove the molds effectively.
