some tips to remove Mold
  • Fix leaky plumbing and leaks in the building envelope as soon as possible.
  • Watch for condensation and wet spots. Fix source(s) of moisture problem(s) as soon as possible.
  • Prevent moisture due to condensation by increasing surface temperature or reducing the moisture level in air (humidity). To increase surface temperature, insulate or increase air circulation. To reduce the moisture level in air, repair leaks, increase ventilation (if outside air is cold and dry), or dehumidify (if outdoor air is warm and humid).

Are you in a high paying business or are you just a self employed low paid grunt who thinks this business provides dignity?

Those are some useful tips that you have shared.Smile
In most of the cases, mold removal isn’t the solution you have to kill it or else it will grow back.
Bleach is the long known effective home remedy to apply including other household cleaners’ vinegar and borax.
While removing the mold at your home, mask, eye protection, and rubber gloves are recommended to use.
This will just give you a temporary solution. So, to get completely get rid of mold it is better to seek for mold removal services.
