Mold Removal in Leominster: 4 Common Treatment Mistakes
Finding mold in your home can be jarring. Your first response might be to grab a bottle of bleach and try and get rid of the mold yourself.

In Leominster, that’s as easy as contacting Green Home Solutions.
Our mold removal treatments offer a proven way to stop mold problems at the source. This way, you can avoid many of the problems that commonly occur with DIY mold treatments.
Below, we’ve compiled 4 of the most common mistakes that homeowners in Leominster make when dealing with mold.
4 Common DIY Mold Removal Mistakes
- Treating mold as an isolated problem. Mold is a sign of an underlying moisture problem, such as a leak or excessive humidity in parts of your home. If you treat existing mold without addressing the moisture problem, new mold will be able to grow.
- Only removing the surface mold. Materials like wood, grout, and drywall are porous. This allows mold to grow inside of the materials. If you only kill the surface mold, it will look like you’ve fixed the problem. In reality, mold will keep spreading out of sight.
- Using ineffective products (like bleach). Very few products are able to kill subsurface mold colonies. Bleach, for example, will only kill surface mold. This makes it ineffective for treating mold growth on porous materials.
- Spreading mold spores. When you disturb mold, it can release thousands of toxic spores. These spores pose a health hazard, and they allow mold to spread to new areas. If they aren’t contained, you could end up making mold problems even worse.
