Misinformation about mold – its effects and how to treat it – is common and can be costly to your health and property, especially as temperatures rise. In the right conditions, and without the right treatment, mold can quickly grow into a major problem. Know the facts vs. fiction!
Myth 1 -- Bleach or other retail products can kill mold on any surface. FALSE! Most retail products simply discolor mold and are not recommended for use on porous surfaces, such as wood, carpet, ceiling tile or drywall. Removing mold-affected items is usually the only way to make sure the mold is removed.
