How to Create Mold Removal Spray

Mold Removal Spray

If you suspect your home has been invaded by mold colonies, you may be wanting to handle the situation on your own. While mold remediation services, like those provided by United Water Restoration Group, can greatly assist in larger mold remediation tasks, a homeowner may be able to handle smaller jobs on their own. Though one can buy mold removal spray from a retail store, these mold removal spray products contain chemicals that can prove to be harmful.

United Water Restoration Group, a company that provides mold damage remediation services, would like to discuss natural remedies for mold removal spray. Not only can you create a non-toxic mold removal spray, but you may also have some remedies readily available at home. 

How to Spot Mold

Before going out of your way to craft a non-toxic mold removal spray, you should be sure the areas are affected by mold. Depending on the severity of the mold and the location, mold colonies can either be easy to spot or tricky. Mold can grow in many spots in a home, from the bathroom to the crawlspace, it can spread and grow rapidly if left unattended.

Visually, mold colonies look like discolored splotches on a surface. Mold can hide in spots that aren’t traveled frequently or dwell under surfaces. In cases where you can’t see the mold, you can still smell it. Regardless of how hidden a mold colony is, as it grows, eventually it will leave a trace of scent.

Mold colonies typically leave behind a musty, stagnant water smell. Mold spores a microscopic and are present in nearly every room, it is only once they begin forming colonies that you should be concerned.

Non-Toxic Mold Removal Spray

There are several non-toxic mold removal spray bottles you can craft from items around your home. Before trying to make any mold removal spray, ensure you have a spray bottle to help administer the solution.

While you can place the solution on the affected areas, a spray bottle can help dispense the solution in a neat and more accurate fashion that covers more ground. Here are some non-toxic mold removal spray solutions you can make at home:

Peroxide Solution: Hydrogen peroxide is a solution that many can find at home or can quickly pick up at any local store. It has antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties. For this solution, simply place 3% concentrated peroxide in a spray bottle. Since peroxide has so many uses, it can be sprayed on nearly any counter without cause for concern. For this solution to work, spray it on affected areas until they are saturated. Leave the solution on for around 10 minutes and then scrub. The mold splotches should come up with relative ease and this solution should help prevent further colonies from growing. 

Baking Soda Solution: Baking soda has more functionality than absorbing smells in your refrigerator. If used properly, it can be a potent mold removal spray solution. For this solution, add one-quarter of a tablespoon of baking soda to a spray bottle with water and shake. Spray the affected areas and let the solution sit for around 10 minutes before scrubbing. 

Lemon Juice Solution: Lemon juice provides a citrusy scent and a natural way to take care of mold. The high concentration of acid in lemon juice helps breakdown mold and prevent its spread. For this solution, juice three to five lemons and place the juice in a spray bottle. For this solution, you may not want to mix water as it can dilute the acid and weaken it.

Making mold removal spray can be easy and help solve more basic mold jobs. However, if mold has spread, it can be more difficult of a problem. While the non-toxic solutions above can greatly assist in smaller cases, professionals may be required for more severe instances.
