Basement Mold Cleaning

Cleaning your home is something you do on a daily basis.  Each day we make our beds, wipe the bathroom sink clean after brushing and wash up our breakfast dishes.  Once a week we vacuum and do laundry.  We stay on top of the cleanliness of our home.  How often do we perform basement mold cleaning?  You do not need to do this as often as washing dishes but we should do basement mold cleaning at least once a week.

If you have a basement then you should go on monthly basement mold cleaning duty.  Check any areas of the basement where water could accumulate and sit.  Check around the oil tank, the heating unit, the pipes to the bathroom and kitchen and around the windows.  Look for an accumulation of mold spores building up in the crevices.  If you find mold on your basement mold cleaning tour then you should get rid of it as soon as possible.

To perform basement mold removal you should arm yourself with the proper gear.  You should have disinfectant cleanser, a face mask, an air purifier and several disposable rags.  If you think the basement mold cleaning project is too big for you then call in a Mold Remediation Specialist.  At any rate you want to get rid of the mold before it can spread to your valuable stored possessions or to the rest of the house.

If you do a precise basement mold cleaning once a month you should not have any problems. If you have had a flood or standing water in the basement then you will want to run a basement mold cleaning session more often to make sure there are no mold issues.  Start at the bottom of your home and work up consistently keeping a clean mold free front against germ invasions in your home.
