Should You Try to Remove the Mold Yourself?

Hiring a professional is the safest solution. However, some situations may be easy to clean up with the proper equipment.

Using a bleach water solution is effective at killing mold, but you want to make sure you are protecting yourself during the cleanup. Facemasks and gloves will protect your lungs and your skin from damage caused by the mold or bleach. If at any time you experience headaches or nausea, stop and reach out to a professional.

If the mold is on curtains or drapes, it’s generally best to replace the fabric instead of trying to wash out the mold.
