Its important to find out first what is causing mold to grow inside your home. Mold has to have water in order to grow so you want to find out the source of the water and immediately fix any leaks or other reasons for the water issue. There is no point in cleaning up the mold if you have not fixed the cause as it will most likely grow back.
Although you can use detergent and water for scrubbing mold off hard surfaces, this may not work for more absorbent items such as carpets which you might have to throw out. Before you paint a surface that has had mold on it, make sure it has been cleaned up and completely dried or you may find the paint will start to peel. You do not want to caulk a moldy surface either.
It is very hard to remove the stains caused by mold so if you find it is on curtains, cushions or other soft furnishings, you may find it useful to call a specialist in furniture restoration who can advise you on what to do.
Always wear protective clothing and a respirator when cleaning up a mold problem and don’t allow others to be in the area without protection during clean up. Before starting the job of mold cleanup in you home, you may find it helpful to seek the advice of a professional who can let you know if this is something you can take care of yourself.
