Should I Use Bleach to Clean up North Alabama Household Mold?

 The use of chlorine bleach to sterilize an area and clean up North Alabama household mold is not recommended as a routine practice because more often than not, there will still be a level of spores that remain. However, these mold spores will not grow if the underlying moisture problem has been resolved.

You also never want to mix chlorine bleach with other household cleaning solutions that contain ammonia because toxic fumes could be produced. It is also important to be aware that even dead mold can cause allergic reactions for some people. It is not enough to just kill mold spores, the mold must be completely removed.

  • Stains on ceilings and/or walls
  • Musty or mildew smell
  • Speckled patterns on or behind walls, tile, grout, air ducts or other surfaces
  • Unexplained illness in combination with some or all of the signs listed above
