I got mold in my house. Again. We tried a lot of money, but the mold keeps coming back. Has anyone encountered a similar problem?

You need to buy from the supermarket the mold killer, but bleach mixed with water can do because that's what I do.

Mold generally occur to the places that are wet and damp. To get rid of mold from the home you can remove the moisture source first of all and also keep the taps, pipes holes, sewage and other water sources checked properly. Also can try for engineered wood floor which is ideal for moisture and perfect under floor heating which reduces the chance of growing of mold.

The major problem with mold is that the mold spores can spread so quickly and they can't be completely eradicated. Therefore, you must identify the source of the moisture and take care of this first. Mold can grow on the back of drywall, on your ceiling panels. in your carpets, food, clothing, or even on paper. There are many times you can't see the mold that grows in your home. You can do an assessment of your home to identify the major sources of mold. After you've done this, you can now work on fixing the problems You can cure the problems, but in reality, you can't get mold out of your home. You will need to:

  • Dry all the wet areas in your home.
  • If the sheetrock is damaged and continue to get mold on it, you'll need to remove this and have it changed. When changing this out, examine the back of the wall to find out why this area is always wet. Repair all the problems that are associated with this area and the moisture that is there. 
  • You'll need to install proper ventilation in the heavy mold areas around your home. 
  • Buy only mold resistant products for your home. 
  • Always monitor the humidity in your home.
  • Keep your home well ventilated, open the door and windows whenever possible to let the sun and fresh air in. Keep the air circulating in your home. 
  • Direct all water away from your home.
  • Keep your rain gutters cleaned out at all times. 
  • Keep the mold off all your household plants.

Normally mold generally occurs in the places that are wet. It may reduce the strength of the walls or that place where it occurs. There are several products that are available in the market which will help you to get rid of the mold such as Bleach Powder, Vinegar, Baking Soda, Hydrogen Peroxide, Borax, and more. You have to make the solution of all these products individually and will use it on that place where mold occurs. You can also perform mold inspection before construction of your residential as well as the commercial place to get rid of such kind of problem in future.

I get mould in my house on certain walls when it is cold and damp in the winter. I have tried all sorts of preparations but the thing that worked best for me is spray bleach. A friend recommended this method and I must admit I was doubtful but it really worked.

First of all I cleaned the surface I was going to spray and removed all the mould which had appeared, then I dried it thoroughly and sprayed the bleach on the area affected. I was convinced it would return but even after several months it was still clear. Now I spray the walls that are affected every year before the winter starts and this keeps them clear. A simple but effective way to keep the mould away which is inexpensive.

Hi Serena. Dampness is the major source of mold infestation. You should start with mold removal first. Scrub off infested area with mold cleansers or water and bleach solution. Rinse the surface with clean water and let it dry. For removing dampness, use dehumidifier.
