Red mold removal needs to be done
without hesitation should you discover it growing within your home. Red
mold isn't that unusual as molds come in all sorts of colors. Red mold
removal is accomplished the same way as every other mold.
First identify the location of the red mold. Then cut off the moisture
supplying the red mold because without eliminating the water source, it
will continue to grow no matter how many times you clean it up.
Once the moisture problem is solved, it's time to put together the
required personal protective equipment you'll need. A set of goggles, a
mask, gloves and protective clothes if you're chemical agent requires
it. I often use bleach and dilute it with water but only if I am sure I
can dry the area within a few hours. Make sure you have adequate
For larger areas you will want to isolate the area within a containment
tent that you would contruct with clear sheet plastic and duct tape.
That way the when all the mold spores are stirred up during the
cleaning process, they will be confined to the containment.
Scrape away and throw away the gross mold. Then begin cleaning with
your moldicide. Allow the chemical to stand at least 10 minutes prior
to wiping it up. You want as much kill time as possible. Throw
everything into sealed plastic bags. You don't want to contaminate
other areas of your home with more red mold.
Once the red mold is all cleaned up, disinfect the containment, the
outside of the garbage bags, your equipment and suit too. It is wise if
you are just wearing old clothes to remove them, bag them and not allow
them within your living space. Throwing them away would be best.
Now dry the affected area thoroughly. Without completely drying the
area, the red mold spores that were released and escaped will land on
the moist surface and begin growing again. Hopefully you can dry it
completely and there will be no problems.
Take precautions with red mold because you don't want it to make you
sick or further infect your home.
