Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to remove mold from walls:

  1. Inspect the affected area for signs of mold: Mold usually appears as black, green, or white spots on walls. It can also appear as a fuzzy growth. You might also notice a musty smell in the affected area. This is a good indication that there is mold present.
  2. If you notice mold, it’s important to act quickly: The sooner you remove it, the less damage it will cause. You should also try to determine the source of the mold. This will help you prevent it from coming back. The most common sources of mold are leaks in the home, such as from pipes or roofs.
  3. To remove mold from walls, you’ll need some basic cleaning supplies: These include a bucket, bleach, gloves, and a mask. The mask is important to prevent you from breathing in mold spores. You’ll also need a stiff brush to scrub the mold off of the walls. This can be a nail brush, toothbrush, or other type of stiff brush.
  4. Start by mixing one cup of bleach with one gallon of water: This will create a cleaning solution that will kill the mold. Make sure you wear gloves and a mask when handling bleach. You should also open windows and doors to ventilate the area.
  5. Next, use a brush to scrub the moldy areas of the wall: Be sure to scrub vigorously to remove all of the mold. You might need to use a scraper to remove stubborn mold. This is especially true if the mold has started to eat into the wall.
  6. Once you’ve removed all of the mold, rinse the area with clean water: You can use a garden hose or a bucket of water. Be sure to rinse the area well to remove all traces of bleach.
  7. Allow the area to dry completely: This is important to prevent the mold from coming back. You can speed up the drying process by using a fan or opening windows and doors.
  8. Once the area is dry, you can repaint or wallpaper over the affected area: This will help prevent the mold from coming back.

Follow these steps and you’ll quickly remove mold from walls!

"Out of all of the options in the area, I’m so glad I went with Mold Solutions. They were the only ones that can thoroughly handle my entire problem, including the air conditioning ducts where other companies were telling me I needed 3 to 4 different service people with different bills all coming to my house at different times costing me tons of money. They got everything done in one day. I felt the difference in my health immediately after they finished." — 5-Star Google Review

Mold solutions just remediated mold in my air handler and ductwork throughout my home. They were very thorough. I was impressed with their knowledge of mycotoxins from mold and the seriousness of mold. All of the staff that I interacted with was patient, friendly, helpful and efficient. They kept me informed and I was super happy that the entire home was dry fogged with pet friendly ingredients. My two cats and I had to go out on the patio for 3 hours as the dry fog did it's thing. They kept me informed and let me know when it was perfectly safe to go back inside. Trustworthy, efficient and nice.
