Depending on how bad your infestation of mold is you can perform the black mold removal yourself by following the proper removal instructions. The removal process can be somewhat of a tedious procedure and it is important that the necessary steps are taken in order to prevent further spread of this toxic mold. Identifying the Issue First is it important to make sure you have identified the issue properly. There are kits out there that you can use to test to see if the spot you are curious about is toxic or not. Another way is to hire a specialist to come out and assess the area. Once you know for sure what you are dealing with (i.e. whether or not it's mold, and whether or not it's toxic) you will to want to remove the mold as quickly and safely as possible. Removing Black Mold The severity of the infestation will determine the level of removal necessary. If you caught it quickly enough and it's contained to a small area, you can easily clean it with distilled white vinegar, detergent and water. If your case is more serious you will have to purchase a special cleaner. The process is much more involved in severe cases than when removing black mold from a small contained spot. Step 1: Seal Off the Area You want to first seal off the area that contains the toxic substance. This is to prevent spores from spreading to other areas of the building or home. If the contaminated area is near a door or window you should place an exhaust fan inside the contained area and open the door or the window to the outside. This will create a negative pressure that will blow the spores outside. Step 2: Protect Yourself Wear protective clothing that covers your entire body and make sure the clothes can be easily removed and easily disposed of. A Tyvek suit is highly recommended as well as a face mask or respirator, gloves and eye goggles while performing black mold removal. If possible, place an air humidifier in the contained area as well to help prevent mold spores from spreading further. Step 3: Clean the Contaminated Area If the area is dry you will want to wet it a bit before you start to clean. This will lessen the chance of the mold spores becoming airborne. You then want to clean the area with soap and water removing as much mold as possible. Once finished, it is time to use cleaner specifically designed for mold removal. This will help kill the toxic substance more permanently to help ensure it does not come back. Step 4: Discard Safely & Properly Once you are finished, be sure to dispose of all your cleaning rags and protective gear in a heavy duty plastic bag and make sure it is tightly sealed. Dispose of it as soon as possible away from your home or building. The sooner these materials are out of the facility, the better chance you have of recurrence.
