Why You Cant Use Bleach To Remove Mold
Using bleach in an attempt to remove mold on a porous surface like wood or drywall can have very negative effects.
It’s our goal help to you identify your mold sources and develop your mold elimination strategy.
Because of its chemical composition, bleach is unable to penetrate beyond the surface and get to the root of the mold. So while it may seem you’re cleaning up the mold, you’re actually just removing the visible part you can see – the root of the mold is still there. In a few short days that mold will reappear.
Using bleach on wood can actually drive the mold deeper inside the fibers causing more problems for you later. Because bleach is mostly water, you can actually feed the mold root with what it needs to grow – moisture. To sum it up bleach is toxic and using it to remove mold on a porous surface like drywall or wood will cause more harm.
