Mold Removal Aurora: Do you have mold at home? Did you know you can remove it easily with DIY products?
If you do not want to spend a lot of money on mold removal Chicago companies from Aurora, Chicago, Glenview, Highland Park, Naperville, Skokie, then read on… here are some things you can do at home to remove mold from your walls and furniture.
First, what you need to do is evaluate the level of mold infestation in your house. To do that you can go to the EPA’s website (epa.gov) and learn all there is to know about mold infestation.
Once you are armed with the right information and the right knowledge, it is time to take action. Do not touch the mold with your bare hands, do not breathe close to it and be careful not to get it in your eyes. The logic solution is to wear protection equipment: gloves face mask and clothes that you can throw away once the work is done.
Depending on the source of the mold decide if the objects can be repaired or if they need to be removed. If they can be repaired, don’t use bleach, because they only act on the surface. If the moisture source was clean, you can use a steamer to remove wet or loose debris.
The next step is to scrub the area with detergent and water. The secret lies in not soaking the object in water because mold is prone to re-appear. Once dry, vacuum with a HEPA vacuum.

Notice! In most cases, mold cannot be removed from furniture or other objects. It is best that you give up those objects forever and replace them with new ones. When mold affects your entire house, it is time to call in a mold removal company.
