Oahu Professional Movers Explain How to Combat Household Mold, Ewa, Hawaii

Most homeowners on Oahu have encountered mold on their property, but no matter how persistent the problem is, the professional movers at M. Dyer & Sons know the best ways to address the issue. With over 45 years of experience helping families in Hawaii relocate, they've learned a few tricks about keeping homes—and families—safe. 

To remove mold in your house, bleach and vinegar are two popular options. Bleach is a powerful cleaner, even when it's diluted, and it can destroy mold and other microorganisms in your house. Bleach, however, can create toxic fumes, especially when it's mixed with other chemicals, such as ammonia. Bleach can also be dangerous if it gets on your skin. For these reasons, vinegar is sometimes preferred for mold mitigation. When vinegar is added to baking soda or hydrogen peroxide, it can effectively destroy mold. Although it isn't as strong as bleach, it's non-toxic and safer to use in the home.

Before you decide to use one solution over another, consider the surface you are cleaning. Bleach should not be used to clean porous surfaces, like concrete, wood, and unsealed tile. Vinegar can be used on these surfaces, but not on wood or granite, because it can cause discoloration.

Because of Hawaii’s warm and humid climate, mold spores proliferate. Mold can cause respiratory problems, especially in people who are prone to allergies and asthma, so it's important to stomp out mold growth as soon as it starts. Armed with both vinegar and bleach, you should be able to treat your home for mold, but if these methods prove ineffective, it may be time to call in a professional remediation service. The biggest priority is to keep your family safe—and that means completely eradicating mold spores from your home.
