Mold may cause stuffy nose, eye irritation, skin irritation, or wheezing. People with a compromised immune system may have an increased risk of developing mold infections in their lungs.

The following tips and techniques will help you clean up your mold problem.

Please note that mold may cause staining and cosmetic damage.  It may not be possible to clean an item so that its original appearance is restored.

Fix plumbing leaks and other water problems as soon as possible.  

Dry all items completely.

Scrub mold off hard surfaces with detergent or bleach and water, and dry completely.

Absorbent or porous materials, such as carpet, may have to be thrown away if they become moldy.  

Mold can grow on or fill in the empty spaces and crevices of porous materials, so the mold may be difficult or impossible to remove completely.
Avoid exposing yourself or others to mold.
