Does Bleach Kill Mold or Mildew?

5/20/2021 (Permalink)

Does bleach kill mold or mildew?  Short answer is no.  One can use bleach to remove small amounts on hard surfaces such as tile or bathtubs.  However, bleach will not kill mold on porous surfaces, such as those made of wood or even drywall.   Mold can spread through the roots of the surface and can contribute to several health effects.

What to do if you spot mold in your home?  First, turn off HVAC systems and fans.   Mold can travel through your system quickly causing more damage or health effects.    Call the experts of SERVOPRO of Beachwood for a mold evaluation and put your mind at ease. 

Once our specialist has assessed your property and there has been a mold discovery, our team will work expediently to contain the area affected by mold.  Once this is complete, our team will bring in HEPA vacuums and air scrubbers, which will reduce the spread of mold spores during the remediation process.  If necessary,  we will remove and dispose of any mold-infested porous materials if necessary.

If you have reason to believe there is mold damage to your home or commercial property, call SERVPRO of Beachwood / Shaker Heights / Cleveland Heights at 440-464-4498 and we’ll make it “Like it never even happened.”
