Mold Problems in Poway, CA

Molds are part of the natural environment and exist indoors and outdoors. But mold problems can develop in homes when mold grows on surfaces that are wet. If mold is growing in your home in Poway, you need to clean up the mold AND fix the moisture/water problem. If you clean up the mold but don’t fix the water problem, the mold problem will likely come back. Mold growth can be removed from hard surfaces with commercial products, soap and water, or a bleach solution of no more than 1 cup of bleach in 1 gallon of water. NOTE: If you use bleach, always open windows and doors to provide fresh air and never mix bleach with ammonia or other household cleaners.
