Cleaning up mold & Biocides

Biocides

Everything you need to know about Biocides

Biocides are designed to destroy living organisms. A great example of a biocide is chlorine-based bleach which can be effectively used to kill organisms which make up mold. When making use of these chemicals or biocides you need to make sure that the chemicals would not affect those in the house whose immune systems are compromised. You need to know that in many of the cases it is not advised to completely sterilize an area without properly dealing with moisture problems first. Even though an area has been properly sterilized there will be mold spores which remain and if the moisture problems have not been attended to, then the mold will regrow.

If you have chosen to make use of biocides and disinfectants you will need to make sure that the area you are working in is properly ventilated at all times. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is to implement an exhaust system in the room which will pump used air out of the room and fill it with clean air. One of the key precautions you will need to take into consideration when using these methods is that you should never mix chemicals together.  Bleach solutions should be used on their own and detergents which could contain ammonia, should be used separately. If you are mixing chemicals together you need to know that the resulting fumes can be toxic.
