Mould is a problem that is not easy to eradicate unless professionally removed. Even then, unless the source of moisture that causes a mould infestation is eliminated, the mould will continue to flourish with detrimental effects on your health and home. Some of the more harmful types of mould produce mycotoxins that are highly toxic to humans and can cause serious respiratory illnesses.

Why You Should Never Use Bleach

You should never use bleach to remove the mould because all it does is bleach the colour out of the visible mould without killing off the organism itself.  Just because you cannot see the mould does not mean that it is not active, spreading spores and mycotoxins into the air that can make you sick. In addition, bleach is also a health hazard and can cause serious damage if it comes into contact with your skin and eyes.
