Tiny mould spores can become a big problem. A relative humidity level of more than 55% inside your home provides the perfect environment where sometimes-toxic mold may thrive. Household moulds are commonly called mildew. Mildew can grow on wood, sheet rock, insulation, fabric and carpets, among other places. Mould spores are in the air everywhere around us, but they only form colonies when the humidity level is elevated. If your home, boat, warehouse or vacation cottage has been infested, you will have to do some serious mold remediation as soon as possible. Mould problems will not get better on their own. In fact, mold problems will only get worse, unless you perform mold remediation and correct the humidity level in your interior space.
In the Leviticus book of the bible, there is some strong advice regarding how to deal with household mold remediation. If removing infested stones from the walls of an infested house did not do the trick, a priest would insist that the house be torn down. Thank goodness mold remediation techniques have improved over the past 2500 years or so. One of the first steps you must take toward effective and permanent mold remediation is to correct the humidity levels in your home or wherever else your mold problem exists. The best way to accomplish this is to purchase and start using a high-quality dehumidifier right away.
The nest step in mold remediation is to isolate and destroy the mold infestations. Be careful not to spread mold spores while you're at it. Many household soaps may kill mold. Alcohols such as ethanol and isopropanol are also quite effective at killing mold colonies. Hypochlorites like Clorox bleach will also kill mold, but they can be highly corrosive, so exercise caution when using a bleach solution. Once the mold is killed, dry all surfaces thoroughly. A mold-inhibiting spray such as Lysol will prevent the mold from growing back, as long as relative humidity is kept below 55%. Mould remediation is not a pleasant task, but it may save your home and the things inside it from ruination.
