How To Kill Black Mold?

How To Kill Black Mold?


Black mold, also called aspergillus and penicillium, is a type of fungus that grows in moist indoor environments. It can affect many parts of the human body including lungs and brain.

There are two main ways you can kill black mold: with bleach or vinegar. Bleach is not the best option because it’s toxic to humans, but if you are in an emergency situation it will work. Vinegar is better but more difficult to find at home; however, there are some great natural alternatives that work just as well!

How to kill black mold?

To kill black mold, you’ll need to do two things: kill its spores (the actual mold) and eliminate the conditions that allow it to grow.

First, remove any visible signs of black mold with paper towels or a wet cloth. Then mix one part bleach with nine parts water in a spray bottle and apply liberally to all affected areas; this will kill the spores on contact. If you’re dealing with more than just a few spots of black mold (which is unlikely if you’ve been following our advice so far), try using an enzyme cleaner like Nature’s Miracle instead–it won’t take care of all those little spores but should help keep them under control so they don’t come back as quickly as they would otherwise!

Vacuum the dust

To remove the dust and mold spores, use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment. If possible, use a HEPA filter vacuum that will capture most of the airborne spores in your home.

Keep the area dry

One of the most important ways to kill black mold is to keep the area dry. If you have a leaky roof or faulty plumbing, or if there’s been a recent flood in your home, then it may be time for some repairs before attempting any other type of treatment.


If you have a black mold problem, there are many ways to get rid of it. You can use bleach or other cleaning products that kill mold and bacteria. Some people prefer natural remedies such as vinegar, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda which are all effective at killing mold spores without harming humans or pets!
