There's Black Mould on My Walls - HELP!

25 February, 2018

In general, whether it’s a basement or a washroom, areas that are poorly ventilated will allow for high levels of moisture – a perfect environment for mould to start developing and spreading. DIY mold removal is possible for walls and concrete Removing and disposing mold from carpeting, wallpaper, and even furniture, is the easy part – as long as care is taken. As for a basement wall (or concrete floor) there are commercial products available designed to clean and kill mold. In fact, bleach is considered one of the better cleaners. With any DIY mould removal, hard scrubbing is the key – at least until any remnant of mold has disappeared. With difficult infiltrations, you may well need to let the cleaning solution sit and soak before scrubbing. For the most difficult situations, a more powerful cleaner may be needed. With mould, regardless of the severity, caution must be taken. That means wearing rubber gloves and safety goggles to protect your eyes. It’s often recommended to wear a dust mask so that none of the mold (or spores) can be breathed in. It’s also important to work in a well-ventilated space.
