DIY Mold and Mildew Removal

DIY mold and mildew removal is a tiresome business. But you don't always have to rip up your carpet or replace the wood in your basement if you have flood damage. Black mold on the grout that won't shift despite loads of elbow grease and bleach? You don't have to call in a specialist to spray copious amounts of noxious chemicals around, while barring you from entering the room until the vapours clear (and that can take absolutely ages). No, you can remove the mold and mildew, and eradicate the musty smell yourself; with home use, DIY products and even a great way to use Tea Tree or Grapefruit seed oils. See below for resources to reviews, handy tips and where to purchase the best products and say goodbye to musty smells and toxic black mold.

TIP: Look at your insurance policy, you may have some cover for professional treatment.

IMPORTANT: When tackling toxic black mold (this is characterized by a dark green/black color with a slimy appearance and has a mildew/musty odour). Don't take chances and invest in some basic safety gear such as goggles, protective suit with a hood, gloves, boots or plastic overshoes to be worn over your shoes and at the very least a N-95 respirator but preferably one specifically designed to protect you from chemical vapour.

Mold Removal Cost - What You Can Expect To Pay

Ensure that all soft furnishings are gathered up and bagged carefully to avoid releasing spores. Once the clean up is done clean every surface of the room to eradicate all spores, preferably by wet wiping as the mold spores can hang around in your vacuum cleaner and re-contaminate the air.
