how-to-kill-mold1Before we get into how to kill mold, first we must give our professional disclaimer. Killing mold does not stop its risks, especialliy health related risks. The Mycotoxins that are present in the cell walls of mold will remain as potent whether dead or alive. Killing mold is thus just the start. Once dead, the mold needs to be properly removed.

Most products on the market will work well at killing mold but only if they are followed to the letter. When not properly handled, even in the slightest bit, these products will fail and mold will be left behind. From here, it only takes a a few spores of the millions that are present to begin reproduction. Mold has to be killed and removed at the root level otherwise it will continue growing.



You certainly can kill mold yourself but the health risks associated with doing so are never worth the gamble. The only people who should remove mold are those with the proper training regarding containment and removal and those who have the proper protective equipment.
