Use Bleach

Bleach helps to kill mold and its allergens. For added efficiency, mix with borax. 

(It only works for white clothing because bleach fades colors.)

How to Use Bleach to Wash Your Clothes

When using your washing machine, make sure to add a cup of bleach into your washing machine. 

When hand washing your clothes, make sure to take a bowl of hot water and mix a cup of bleach. Before rinsing with a detergent, let the solution soak for a few hours.

Use Hydrogen Peroxide

An application of 3 % hydrogen peroxide is effective at removing surface mold. Just spray it, leave it on for 10 minutes, and wait for it to stop fizzing.

Mold is Dangerous

Mold is dangerous. Don’t forget, mold is everywhere. There are safe levels of mold and dangerous levels of mold. When your clothes are contaminated with visible toxic mold, then it is time to take action. The best course of action is to throw away the contaminated articles of clothing, but this may not be necessary. It is also up to you.

Either you can throw away your clothes or decontaminate them with one of the methods that we listed above. Mold is toxic and can cause serious health problems. When it comes to mold, never take a chance!

The people, especially the lead Manny Pozo, was professional and personable. They used more time and equipment than estimated to dry out a troublesome are that concerned me and never once even suggested increasing the bill. They went well beyond my expectations.

Professional, forthcoming and quick response. After hurricane Michael there were lots of vultures and low life’s trying to take advantage of the victims. Nicolas responded quickly completed the quote, which was below what I expected, and they stuck to it. Manny responded with his crew and completed the remediation in a timely, safe, clean and professional manner. The major thing they did was showed concern for safety, compassion for the victims and respect for you and your property. Great Job, Thanks!
