Serving Central NJ, Middletown, Woodbridge, Toms River
According to the EPA's Guide discussing mold in schools and commercial buildings, "the use of a biocide, such as chlorine bleach, is not recommended as a routine practice." The CDC states that you can use bleach for mold growth on hard (nonporous) surfaces in limited areas of less than 10 square feet.
The use of bleach as a mold disinfectant is best left to small clean-up jobs around the home where mold is not a serious problem like kitchen countertops and bathroom tubs and shower glass. Bleach does NOT work on softer, porous surfaces like drywall and most other materials in your home. On porous surfaces, the embedded mold roots are buried deep into the surface. When you wipe down a porous surface with bleach, the water in the solution seeps deep into the surface, while the pungent bleach compound is left on the surface, gassing off into the home, and into your lungs. So, all you've really done with bleach is "fertilize" the mold beneath the surface by giving it more moisture to grow. Often times the mold returns with a vengeance, creating an even bigger problem.
