Bleach is a household cleaning product that can effectively kill mold and preventing future growth. However, bleach is not 100% efficient in getting rid of mold on no-porous surfaces such as bathtubs, tiles, countertops, and glass. The chemicals of bleach that kill mold cannot penetrate the root levels of mold. However, bleach is still effective if you’re dealing with small mold issues in your home. It is an affordable way to keep our home safe from health hazards of mol and mildew.
Note that chlorine-based bleach produces harmful fumes, so make sure that the area you’re working has proper ventilation. Also, you must wear safety gloves and goggles during the process.
You must not rinse the surface after the mold abatement process as the chemicals of bleach can prevent future mold growth.
