There are many misconceptions when it comes to mold. Just mentioning mold causes homeowners to panic so it is important to have the correct facts.

One common misconception about mold is that Bleach will kill mold. most household bleach products only discolor the mold and are not recommended for drywall, wood, carpet, and ceiling tiles.

Another common myth about mold is that a small amount is nothing to worry about. While it is true there is always some mold everywhere chances are it has been growing for sometime and will require a mold professional to determine the situation.

An additional common myth is that mold is only found in homes that have experienced water damage. It is true that mold usually forms in places that have problems with flooding but all homes can potentially have a mold problem.

Finally the myth that mold remediation is easy to do on your own is not always the case. Sometimes it can be handled easily if the mold affects a vert small area. But it is best to call the professionals to make sure the mold issue has been resolved.
