The first step in solving an indoor mold problem is stopping the source of moisture. Next is to remove the mold growth.
Improper methods for cleaning mold include exposure to dry air, heat, sunlight, ozone, and application of fungicides. Although these methods may render the mold non-viable, mold can still elicit negative effects on your health. As noted in following sections, the only proper way to clean mold is to use detergent solutions that physically remove mold.
Many commercially available detergents marketed for mold clean-up also include an anti-fungal agent. Source:
Significant mold growth may require professional mold remediation to remove the affected building materials and eradicate the source of excess moisture. In extreme cases of mold growth in buildings, it may be more cost-effective to condemn the building rather than clean the mold to safe levels.
The goal of remediation is to remove or clean contaminated materials in a way that prevents the emission of fungi and dust contaminated with fungi from leaving a work area and entering an occupied or non-abatement area, while protecting the health of workers performing the abatement.
