      Mold removal is tedious, but it is easy enough to get rid of it in the early stages. If the contamination is too
    ancient and too wide-spread, you may have to consult professional cleaners. Mold removal with safe heat kills
                                                   mold and mildew.

   If you have small areas of toxic black mold you can remove them yourself if you are very careful.
Very large areas really need professional advice and removal. If you are going to attempt cleaning up
your home of toxic black mold yourself then you need to be aware of the problems you may encounter
and how to deal with them. You should always wear adequate protective clothing which includes
gloves and breathing masks as it is important not to breathe in spores from the mold as they are very
toxic. it is important that you not only remove all visible mold, but that you find any mold growing in
hidden places such as in the walls or inside appliances such as air conditioners. You will also need to
deal with the conditions that caused the toxic black mold to grow in the first place.

Identifying Damp Areas

 The first thing to do before you even attempt to remove the black mold is to find out why it is growing
and deal with these problems. Anywhere there is moisture that has accumulated can allow the black
mold to grow so look for leaks in your roof or chimney, leaking pipes especially those that are hidden in
walls and floors, condensation especially in bathrooms, blocked or leaking gutters etc. You should also
check the humidity in your home and and make sure that it is below 55%. A hygrometer can be used
for this and you should make sure that you check, not just the usual living areas, but also your
basement, your attic, inside closets and cupboards especially those used for storing food and in your
bathroom. If you find the humidity is above 55% then you will need to deal with this by using
dehumidifiers. In bathrooms and basements make sure that you have adequate ventilation. Ensure that
vents from air conditioners and clothes dryers lead to the outside so that they do not increase the
moisture level in the air inside your home.

Toxic Black Mold Removal

Step one - Preventing Black Mold Spores From Spreading

 Before you begin removal of the black mold you need to consider the ways that you are going to use
to prevent any of the toxic spores from spreading through your home. Each room needs to be treated
separately and you will need to seal off the room properly before you start. Shut off any ventilation
systems and use heavy-duty plastic bags and duct tape to seal vents, windows and doors. You need to
keep the dust levels as low as possible so before you start mist the area lightly mist with water to damp

down any dust that may be caused during the removal process.

Step two - Removing the Black Mold

 Once you have the room adequately sealed and the area to be treated damped down you can start to
clean. Thoroughly clean using soap and then disinfect with a preparation specifically made to kill mold.
Black mold may be growing in areas where it is not visible so you need to clean all the surfaces where
the spores may have landed. After cleaning the areas thoroughly dry them. Non-porous materials such
as plastics, metals, glass etc. can be reused. Some semi-porous materials, such as wood and
concrete, may have been so damaged that they need to be replaced and many porous materials such
as paper, ceiling tiles, carpets, insulation etc. can be so heavily damaged by black mold that they may
also be unusable.

Disposing of Contaminated Materials

 It is important that you do not dispose off contaminated materials in such a way that you reinfect other
areas of your home. All contaminated material should be placed in heavy duty plastic bags and sealed
carefully. Do not carry the infected materials through your house but use a window to place the bags
directly outside. They can then be taken to a landfill for proper disposal.

Preventing Black Mold Regrowing

 As we have noted earlier it is extremely important that you deal with any problems that have arisen
that have allowed the black mold to thrive. In addition to repairing any broken pipes and gutters that
may be causing more moisture in your home, plan on a regular tour of inspection to catch any black
mold that is growing before it gets out of control. Include areas that you may not visit often such as
basements, cellars and attics. Inspect your roof regularly for leaks especially after the winter and while
you are there make sure your chimney is undamaged as these can be a major source of leaks from the
roof.

Conclusion

 Small areas of black mold infestation can be dealt with if you are very careful and follow the
guidelines. If you have very large areas please seek professional advice. With regular inspections you
can prevent black mold from growing in your home in the future.
