How to Get Rid of Mold: 15 Tips Every Homeowner Should Know

Wall infested with mold. Mold is dangerous to your health and anyone with this problem should take steps to get rid of mold.

A few days ago, I wrote an article about the dangers of mold, and the response I received was overwhelming. Everybody wanted to know more about mold. In fact, within a few days of publishing the post, I got a couple dozen emails asking how to get rid of mold.

So, I wanted to share my personal tips that I use at my home, as well as here in the office. Please feel free to drop your tips in the comment section below.

How to Get Rid of Mold:

  1. Investigate your home or office for moisture leakage. If you find any moisture leaks, clean them up with a dry towel immediately and find the source of the leak. Consider hiring a professional if the leak does not stop or if you are dealing with a plumbing issue. Controlling moisture leaks in your home or place of work will reduce the mold’s ability to thrive.
  1. Mold loves warm and wet places. If you live in a place with humidity levels of 70% or more, you must particularly take heed to prevent toxic moldy air. Invest in a high-quality dehumidifier and test your home for mold over-growth.
  2. Temperatures above 75° F, as well as poorly lit rooms and unmoving air, can actually create more mold. Keep fresh air moving in your home, as well as bright sunlight coming in through your windows. This will help reduce toxic mold.
  3. Open a window while you take a shower, if possible.
  4. Change air filters regularly in heating and air-conditioning vents.
  5. Invest in a good quality air purification system that employs both a HEPA filter and UV & negative ion technologies. In my opinion, this will give you the best results when cleaning your air.
  6. Keep your home at a moderate temperature, at around 69-73° F and keep the humidity level at 54% and below.
  7. Make sure your clothes dryer has an anti-humidity vent.
  8. Check closets for mold growth. This is especially important if you have ever placed wet or damp clothing in your closets. If you find mold in your closet, wash your clothes immediately to help clean any possible mold spores.
  9. Protect your breathing passages when removing active or dead mold. Wear a mask, eye protection and protective gloves that filter mold.
  1. When cleaning, slightly wet the mold to lessen the amount of airborne spores in the breathing atmosphere while you are cleaning. This can be done with a wet cloth.
  2. Scrub hard surfaces infested in mold with a non-ammonia soap. Non-toxic, organic soap is best for the environment.
  3. Porous surface cannot be cleaned of mold. Things like moldy carpeting, drywall, wall-paper, fabric, or other porous surfaces, must be completely removed and replaced from your home or office.
  4. If you have mold on the structural support of your home or office building, it may not be cleaned out by scrubbing alone. It may have to be sanded. Don’t forget to wear the appropriate protective coverings.
  5. Remember, the best prevention for mold is to KEEP THINGS DRY and always use a good air purification system!

    This is a good list of tips on how to get rid of mold. As a homeowner, I can’t even begin to tell you how often I have run into water damage, that ultimately turns into mold damage.

    I never thought about getting a dehumidifier.. That would probably work wonders. Thanks!

  • Adam

    My mold-removal tip:

    I get my air-ducts in my house cleaned at least once a year, preferably twice a year. Plus I use a HEPA filter for my AC unit, this helps me clean any possible mold spores in the air. I also have numerous air purifiers scattered around my house.

    Great article! Glad that somebody is trying to show homeowners how to get rid of mold.

  • memory foam mattress

    Thanks for all the info. I was able to correct a mold problem I had last summer using two of these ideas —using a dehumidifier and using a HEPA filter. It really seems to make a good difference. During the time when the mold issue was there, I was getting a lot of colds/flu. This cleared up after the remedies.

  • Kate

    We were told to scrub the window frames and then paint them with a paint that supposedly kills the mold. We have tried it on a few windows but the mold grew back on top of the paint. Also, I am wondering if that paint is really safe to have in the home, but it seems like it must be better than the alternative if that is the only way to get rid of the mold.
    Any advice on this (apart from the great tips above) would be great, especially about the paint.

  • William


    The two best methods I know of for killing/removing mold is:

    1) Use an ionizer (generates negative ions in the air)

    2) Hospitals use Chlorine Dioxide (It kills all pathogens, including the deadly MRSA) It kills all molds, etc. with extra oxygen ions.

    Make your own Clorine Dioxide:
    28% Sodium Chlorite
    10% Citric Acid

    Perform a search for these words:

    Thanks for being there to serve us Dr. Group!

  • William

    I just wanted to clarify that negative ions in the air is called ozone. Ozone kills molds, mildew and will remove odors from anything!

  • Matt

    I had a broken faucet in the second floor bathroom. Faucet has been fixed 2 months ago. Since than I have this odor in my bathroom, it seems like it’s coming from the wall. I am affraid I have mold groving in there. Any remedy will be greatly appreciated..

  • Greg

    Speaking of dryers, (#8 above), make sure the dryer vents to the outside of the home and NOT the crawl space or attic. Along these lines, all exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathroom should vent to the outside and NOT the attic.

    If you have venting that terminates in the crawl space or attic, moisture can form in these places and lead to mold growth.


  • Roxanna

    I just wanted to let you know i used MMS and sprayed it in our crawl space, because it smelled musty. and we also had black stuff on our window panes. we sprayed on MMS and no more black stuff and the house doesnt smell musty

  • Kimberly

    The two things I have found that will eleminate mold is to clean with vinegar, or you can use a solution of tea tree oil and water.

  • Has anyone used the enzyme products to get rid of mold in plumbing?

  • Zach Smith

    Molds also grow in mattresses. It is imperative that you clean your mattress every month. Dry clean only. If there are spills, immediately wipe the excess moisture and sprinkle baking soda. This will help absorb excess moisture. Completely dry the mattress before putting bed sheets.

  • jim smith

    has anybody had any success treating an entire house with heat to get rid of mold? because rather than chemicals i would like to treat the whole house rathar than a room or two, just to be safe.

  • Tamar

    These are good tips about getting rid of mold. We just had to clean the mold out of our air ducts. Wasn’t a fun process. But we needed to do it for our 3-month-old.

  • Karen Gipin

    what is MMS and where can you get it?

  • Dan

    I would definitely recommend considering an organic crib mattress for your home. There are countless benefits.

  • Jason

    Make sure everything can breath like couches and mattresses. Avoid moisture built-up.

  • K.Parmley

    Hi we have just moved into a rented property, we are having a mold problem in our spare bedroom. The mould is only on one wall, it started off just on the skirting board and is traveling up the wall. We have pulled all the furniture into the middle of the room to let the air to it, however this is not helping.
    what can we do? do you know what could be causing this?

  • Dr. Edward Group

    You most likely will have to ozonate the room and find a local person to do this.


    – Dr. G

  • Dr. Edward Group

    Initially it may be best to gather more information about this concerns and then go from there.

    Mold requires nutrients, water, oxygen and favorable temperatures to grow. Nutrients for mold are present in dead organic material such as wood, paper or fabrics; mold can also derive nutrients from some synthetic products such as paints and adhesives. Mold requires moisture, although some mold species can obtain that moisture from moist air when the relative humidity is above 70 per cent. Many molds thrive at normal indoor temperatures; few if any molds are able to grow below 40 F or above 100 F. Outside this range molds may remain dormant or inactive; they may begin to grow again when the temperature is more favorable. Temperatures well above 100 F will kill mold and mold spores, but the exact temperature required to kill specific species is not well established.

    If mold is present, what’s the best way to get rid of it?

    The answer depends on how much mold is present and where it is located. If the mold is on furnishings or boxes simply discard the materials. Moldy materials are not considered hazardous waste; they can be sent to a regular landfill. However, it is smart to seal the mold material in heavy plastic to protect the people who handle it in transit and prevent spreading large amounts of the mold into the building as you carry the material out of it.

    If the mold is on a hard surface but occupies less than 10 square feet wash the area with soapy water (scrubbing with a brush may be necessary), rinse and allow the area to dry before repainting. If you have asthma, severe allergies and a weaken immune system get someone else to do the clean up.

    Larger areas (greater than 10 square feet in area) should be cleaned by someone with experience in doing this type of work. Remember, determine what caused the moisture problem and correct that problem. Otherwise, mold is likely to recur.

    Is it possible to completely eliminate mold from the inside of a home or office building?

    The answer depends upon what is meant by “completely eliminate mold.” To keep a building completely free of mold spores requires very efficient air filtration and is only accomplished in special situations such as hospital operating rooms and manufacturing “clean rooms.” Remember, mold spores are in the outside air virtually all the time and some of them will get inside buildings.

    However, it is possible to keep mold from growing inside a building. Moisture control is the key to controlling mold in interior spaces. Air filtration can contribute to lowering mold spores in the air but is secondary to moisture control.

    Fixing the problem would require locating the source of the moisture and correcting the issue, this may require the help of a professional to really get to the bottom of the concern. Once the moisture is under control I would suggest the use of a good Air Purifier in order to filter out the mold that may be circulating through out the home.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions and I will be more than happy to help you.

    After you scrub/clean (1 cup chlorine bleach works very well in a gallon of water), wipe and dry a moldy area, you can paint it with Kilz primer. Kilz is the brand. It’s an oil-based primer. After priming with Kilz, then paint over the primer with a regular paint. Follow the directions. This works well for any area containing mold.

    Prior to doing this, you should ensure the water/moisture source is eliminated (if a leak is involved). Adeqate cleaning will also not allow mold to grow in the first place in other areas without leaks (such as in a bathroom).

  • tim daniel

    i had mold develope in my house from rotten wood . i had to remove and replace wood. cover over with kilz primer. knock down mold with clorox. i even sprayed in my air ducts while fan was running. need to open windows and leave imediately. if you get sick try oil of oregano and or iodine.

    I had the same problem here in Australia..The root cause was overhanging tree rid of them, also cleaned out the gutters. to get rid of the mold…I used Shower Sparkle…any good shower cleaner will do..empty the room of furniture first…after the Shower sparkle treatment (you may need to treat it more than once, to kill the mold,)I repainted the ceiling with a mold inhibitor paint…same routine in the bathroom…so far no reappearence of mold..but keep an eye out, especially in wet areas…

    I have a glass block shower and one of the blocks at the bottom has black mold under it visible through the glass. Apparently there is a void beneath the block and a pinhole in the mortar that lets in moisture. How can I get rid of it without dismantling the entire wall?

  • Jenny Gomez

    You’ve got some nice information here. Many households in Birmingham were having issues with mold. There was, literally, an outbreak of molds in a number of houses in Birmingham. So we at Birmingham plumbers were called in to help people get rid of mold.

  • Sara


  • Bleach will not kill mould, its 97% water and 3% sodium chlorite, it will take the colour out but will not get rid of the spores

  • Sara

    For the carpet and dry wall, can we use vacuum cleaner? It’ll dry the surface and probably lessen the mold..what do you think?

  • imaginestone

    The mold that you are seeing in your shower is not starting in the wall. The floor of your shower is made of a four to one sand and portland mix, it is mixed dry to allow water to pass through it and allow it to dry. Underneath the mortar is a thick rubber sheet called choralloy, the water is collected on this sheet and the sheet should slope towards the drain. There are small holes at the bottom of the drain flange that allow the water to escape, so if you are getting mold in the base of your shower it is because of one of two things. One, the rubber lining of the shower does not slope to the drain, or two, the small holes at the base of the drain flange (weep holes) are clogged. Either of these two scenarios would require that you remove everything from two feet up the wall and down from there. This includes the shower pan, wall tile (at least two feet high) and in your case the glass block. If there is a bench in your shower, you will probably have to take that out as well. This is a problem that started with the way the shower was built, I have seen this problem quite often and it is sad, because it is the fault of the builder of the shower. If custom showers are constructed correctly, this problem does not occur.

  • Jean R

    It may take a few extra minutes, but each time I have a bath, I use a towel to dry the shower, including the glass door and the floor. I take my used damp towels straight to the laundry, instead of leaving them around, hanging over the shower door. I also leave the shower door open so that any areas I did not get with the towel, can air dry. I believe this will prevent some unnecessary moisture from accumulating in the bathroom

  • J.

    Does drying out wood with heat (under sink) stop mold odor.
    Thank you your great service,

    i just bought shower sparkle the other day for my shower (obviously haha) and just read this, worked so much better than my mould spray!! im in tasmania and we are renting, and have mould in the spare bedroom/bathroom which seemed to appear out of nowehere within a few days! so now we know that we have to open windows (during winter – which sucks), but i still need to get it all cleaned. thanks for the suggestion of sparkle!!

    Hello. I shampoo my carpet quiet often in a certain area because before my chihuahua was trained to go potty outside, she would urinate in a certain spot on the carpet. I shampoos it so often that I’m concerned there may be some mold under the carpet. Also I washing machine leaked a considerable amount of water on my hardwood floor. My question is this….Is there something I can buy that can measure the Air quality in my home to see if there is any sign of mold spores circulating?

    Thank you,

  • Great question. I haven’t tried the product but I see First Alert does make a mold detection kit…. so yes, the product concept exists. I’d check a few others as well and compare the reviews.

    Grateful to have found this site. I deal with such serious mold problems staying with parents in Massachusetts that my mouth can often taste the mold, especially in the morning! My homeopathic herbalogist got me started on cleansing regimens for lungs and sinuses which help, but this house has been sick with brown, black and white mold for years – not to mention previous wild critter infestation which has left behind their dander, fecal matter and Lord knows what else in an above crawlspace which continues unabated.
    Every single indication of illness I’ve exhibited – especially deepening depression – and having tried to figure out why weight can’t come off properly, sleepless nights are common, and lethargy is my constant companion (very opposite my nature), I’m realizing this article is hitting on everything wrong with me and this situation. Elder parents don’t even realize the toxins they’re breathing which they say does not bother them. Being their caregiver and finding myself between careers for some time now, there aren’t many options – except I do run an ionizer 24/7 in the bedroom and have a fan continuously running in the bath and adjacent living space.
    Other treatments have included Clorox Disinfectant with Mold Inhibitor, the only spray that helps keep down the problem in heat registers, closets, walls and rugs. The problem is especially critical in winter with sealed windows, except the bath…and I’ve had them open in temperatures as cold as 15F. The problem lessens somewhat when outside air is allowed in above 60F.
    Trying to convince them to get the entire house properly abated but not very successful. What would be the best and easiest source to give them to make a convincing argument?

  • Might need to have someone look at it and consider replacing it with a non-toxic option that also is resistant to mold growth.

  • It sounds like you’ve given them good reason but they’re not listening. If it came from someone they viewed as an authority (doctor?) would they be more receptive?

    Vacuums will just disturb the mold causing them to release more spores

  • kittykat

    I pour a concentrated lemon scented bleach into a spray bottle and spray the bleach directly onto the walls, windows, bathroom tiles, skirting boards, doors, kitchen sinks, etc., that are affected by mould, or dust to remove dust mites. Then leave it for a few minutes to allow the bleach to destroys the mould and dust, before wiping these surfaces with a clean damp cloth. You don’t have to rinse them too much because if there is still some bleach left on these surfaces it actually protects them from further mould developing. However, for ceilings I use a clean mop dipped in a bucket of bleach and squeezed tightly, but make sure to wear plastic eye protection, rain coat, and a hat to avoid getting it into your eyes, hair and clothes, which you can buy from a hardware store. However, it is best that you check the roof for any damage that might be allowing rain to enter the roof and hence keeping the ceilings wet, and to check the guttering if it’s blocked with leaves which could be preventing proper drainage and rain sipping through the eaves. If you keep a spray bottle filled with bleach and spray it whenever you see signs of dust or mould on any surfaces, then the problem will not get out of hand and can be easily controlled.

  • kittykat

    I also wish to mention that the spraying of concentrated lemon scented bleach on surfaces not only removes mould and dust, but it also disinfects the rooms. But make sure you open the windows after half an hour to air the rooms because it is an oxidizer.

    Hey you know what I did that helped a ton? Having had a dang disgusting mold in a hoouse I’d moved into a year previously with windows that for all kinds of individual reasons wouldn’t open, I finally ‘negative pressurized’ the house in the summer by putting two fans in front of 2 basement windows pointing out…& shutting everything else except the attic windows at night & some colder days. Those fans went for 2 months & it dried out my basement…by pulling clean air into & out of my basement through my heat duct system….it was remarkable! Plus I mixed coconut oil as a base with clove, tea tree & oregano oil & misted & brushed it all into the basement wood support beams. That mold is demoralizing stuff. Creepy.

    Borax works well on cement (cinder block); HEPA vacuum the wall first, then scrub with 3 cups of borax in 2 gallons of warm water; repeat the process. You can use a shop vacuum with a HEPA filter.
    The borax changes the PH of the surface and discourages future mold, so leave the white film on the wall. You can’t paint over the borax, so if you are going to paint afterward, you will have to use a chemical such as Zinsser Jomax or Concrobium Mold Stain Remover. Or clean the wall with vinegar a few times before painting. Bleach does not work well as it evaporates too quickly to ‘kill’ the roots.

  • Jerry Bean

    Basically, you will need a hard mold removal brush and a bleaching powder. These two things can easily make you get rid of Molds. Yes, Molds loved humid conditions and if you prefer to invest in dehumidifier then it will create an unfavorable environment for Molds.

    So we just bought a place and have found that two walls in our kitchen from floor to ceiling is full of mold, our bathroom is filled of mold. Then half way up my walls in living room is moldy. We haven’t went inside the wall to see how much damage is done but bought some mold resistance masks and was planning on getting to big vacuums and running it on both side as we cute and pull the walls off. I’m trying my best not to spread it so wondering if there’s any other things I can do. I can’t afford much, I just put all my money into buying death trap. I’m almost positive there will be mold also on the studs. I’ll be getting rid of all installation and replacing it as well. I’m just so scared of spreading it our not getting it out properly. should I just guy my entire place and scrub down all my beams and where I see mold sand it? Or would leaving the untouched dry wall there be fine? I had professionals come in and look around. The price they have me for just the removal and test was way out of my grasps. I’d still have to buy new dry wall, cabnets, and all that to put back in. Then either do the work our pay someone else to do. If someone knows of any cheap way to get rid of it completely. I have three young children that will be living in that place. Right now I’m staying with family, we’re all squeezed in one small room so need to get this down quickly.

    I had a major roof failure in 2010 where 1/3 of my roof blew off in a storm. It was like those zen waterfalls in my kitchen and living room. My spare bedroom roof was completely gone… (Not zen at all!) Needless to say we got mold in every room of the house because it happened during monsoon season in Arizona. I couldn’t get the roof on fast enough. We started clean with soap and bleach. The bleach did nothing but make us sick. Didn’t touch the mold. Finally we started cleaning with straight white vinegar and spraying it directly into the air and air ducts. It was pretty amazing how quickly it killed it. It’s been a long road, but with the vinegar we finally have our house back. As it was a brick house I only had to replace one of the sheet rock ceilings. I stand behind vinegar for ultimate mold death any day 🙂
