More Cleaning Options

Baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and ammonia are some other common cleaners used in mold cleanup. Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide are a lot more user-friendly than ammonia, which should never be used with bleach. Those two chemicals in combination can produce deadly chlorine gas. If you remember your basic history classes, the Nazis used chlorine gas as a chemical weapon in WWII…making your own in your garage while attempting to clean up mold is not recommended.

Prevention is always a better option than remediation. Keep in mind how the mold growth cycle is constructed and you can reduce the chance that a large mold cleanup will be required. If, however, your defenses have slipped and this pesky fungus has invaded your life, there are a handful of options out there that are both natural and effective.
