Fix Leaks as Soon as Possible

The best thing that you can do to eliminate mold in your home is to not let it form in the first place. One way to do this is to fix leaks as soon as possible rather than waiting for the problem to get bigger and then calling a plumber. Even small leaks can create huge mold problems.

Scrub Mold away and Dry Completely

Whenever you see mold anywhere, scrub it off with hot water and detergent, and then discard anything that you used to clean it off. After you have cleaned the mold off, make sure you dry the item completely to prevent mold from growing on it again. Places you'll want to be vigilant about checking for mold include any appliances that use water such as your washing machine and dishwasher.

Know When to Throw It Out

Porous materials such as drywall used in ceilings and walls, as well as tile and carpet, are very difficult to completely remove of mold because there is more space available for mold to travel and it is often impossible to get all of it. When these things start to collect mold, it is best to just throw it out and call a mold remediation specialist.
