5 DIY Tips & Tricks

  • Vinegar. The acidity in plain white vinegar can kill just about anything. Place some vinegar (preferably heated) in a spray bottle and spray the affected area. Saturate it well and let it soak overnight. In the morning, spray once more and wipe clean with a paper towel. Pat dry.
  • Tea Tree Oil. Take a spray bottle and fill it with 1 cup of water, and 1 tsp. of tea tree oil. Spray over the affected area and let dry. Do not rinse or wipe down. Tea tree oil will kill mold on its own.
  • Vodka. Fill a spray bottle with a cheap vodka. Spritz over the moldy area and let it sit for 15 minutes. Scrub away with a toothbrush, and repeat if necessary.
  • Hydrogen Peroxide. On some semi-porous surfaces like plywood or framing lumber, you can rub hydrogen peroxide on the moldy area and wash off with a clean damp towel.
  • Bleach. Mix baking soda and bleach to form a paste so that it sticks to an area. If you are not worried about the bleach running, spray onto the affected area and let sit for 30 minutes. Wipe down and allow to dry.

Keep in mind that when working with mold, you must always wear a protective mask, eyewear and gloves. Mold spores are airborne and can cling to any surface so always be aware of the danger of spreading, when working with mold. These DIY tips listed above are recommended for non-porous surfaces and on areas 10 sq. feet and smaller. When dealing with a larger area of mold, and if any of these DIY methods don’t work, please call a professional to help rid your home or office building from mold.
