Black mold seems to be a problem in most American houses, especially bathrooms. Most mold remover products will only remove the mold but it won’t kill it. After a few months mold spores will appear, making your shower caulking, ceiling, shower walls or drains black again.
Black mold loves to grow in warm and damp areas and the bathroom provides the perfect conditions for mold developing. For this reason is very important to control humidity in your home and to fix any leakage in your house.
But what does kill black mold, anyway?
Black mold must be removed as soon as you see them. In case you have a huge black mold problem I advise you to call a specialized cleaning team. Hence, if you find a small amount of black mold in the bathroom, you should know that they can be removed very easily using natural methods. As a matter of fact, you won’t only remove but you will kill any black mold found in the bathroom.
First, let’s see how we can remove black mold from caulk
You Will Need:
- A small bowl or similar to mix a solution in
- Some bleach
- Baking soda
- Plastic wrap
- A disposable paint brush
- Put some baking soda in your bowl and slowly add small amounts of bleach until you have a paste-like substance (make more than you need, you don’t want to run out and this is cheap stuff)
- Grab the paint brush and use it to apply the paste to the mold
- Use the plastic wrap to cover the paste on the mold – this may be a bit difficult depending on the location – just do what you can
- Leave it to sit for at least 1 – 2 hours
- Remove the plastic covering and clean off the paste (which may have dried out). If your mold is gone then you are done. If the mold is still there then start again
