Will bleach cure my mold problem.

Mold Remediation Will bleach cure my mold problem. Mold remediation on a ceiling.

So a huge misconception is that bleachwill solve mold problems. In fact, as much as the smell triggers us to think that it is clean anddisinfected. Bleach does not disinfect poroussurfaces like wood, linoleum, cloth or drywall. Bleach actually can encourage mold to grow into a toxic mold because it's providing the mold with moisture to multiply. When trying to eradicate the mold color, bleach is a good choice but will not inhibit the growth of mold. Here at SERVPRO of Valdosta, we choose family friendly, kid-friendly and pet safe products for our customers when remediating mold. Comparedto using bleach which is corrosiveand has toxic vapors our products will not harmyour home, surfaces or yourself.You can count on the best equipment, the best crew and the best job completed when you choose SERVPRO.
