When ridding your home of mold, it is also important to take your surrounding environment into consideration. Using a product that could hurt your pets, or the surrounding wildlife, is generally a bad idea. Luckily, there are products on the market that can kill mold and not hurt your surrounding environment.
The product that we choose to use at Clean Green Restoration in Olympia, Washington is called Cal-Brite.Cal-Brite is low in pH levels and leaves a minimal impact on the environment. Some people also have success using hydrogen peroxide as a mold-removing agent, or bleach. However, we would recommend steering clear of bleach since it can be harmful and can damage your eyes, skin or clothing with direct contact.Cal-Brite is a great choice because it is organic, non-toxic, and biodegradable.
Cal-Brite is safe to use in many circumstances, but it is always a good to test a small area before applying to a large surface. Testing in an inconspicuous area is recommending just in case it stains the surface.
Sometimes, there is just too much mold to clean yourself, in these cases it is a good idea to hire a professional.
