Why Does Mold Keep Coming Back?

Like most homeowners, you know mold is no joke and immediately swing into action when you see it. And chances are, you’ve experienced the frustration when the mold disappeared for a while only to return. What gives? There are many reasons why black mold can return again and again. Here are a few common mistakes that can make mold keep thriving in your Glendale, AZ, home.

Understanding Mold

Mold is actually a living organism called stachybotrys chartarum. This fungus does best in dark, moist areas of your home. That makes it common in:

  • Basements
  • Bathrooms
  • Laundry rooms
  • Beneath sinks

And just about anywhere moisture is common. You can attack it with bleach or other household cleaners but black mold is likely to return. Why?

You’re Not Killing the Spores

Mold replicates and spreads via spores. Lightweight and airborne, these invisible seeds can easily land on a wet surface and start growing. Unfortunately, the average homeowner’s mold cleanup efforts just don’t take care of the spores.

You’re Using the Wrong Chemicals

There are countless online recipes for mold removal solutions, and most are useless. That’s because they’re bleach-based. This clever organism can sometimes adapt and begin to thrive on bleach. That means the solution you use on mold can worsen the infestation.

You’re Not Attacking the Roots

The brown or black furry patches of mold your eye can see are rarely the full extent of the problem. Like any fungus, mold has roots that penetrate deep into the surfaces it covers. As a result, what you wipe may disappear but the roots can thrive, and mold can regrow.
Black mold is an unsightly pain that nobody wants to deal with. Don’t keep fighting a losing battle. Contact a qualified mold remediation specialist at the first sight of fungus and you can rest assured that your mold problem will disappear for good.
