August 20, 2010, Newsletter Issue #44: Cleaning Mold from Wood

Tip of the Week

Cleaning mold from wood can be extremely difficult. It is best to prevent this from happening in the first place by cleaning up standing water and using a dehumidifier in humid climates. Once a floor has mold, there are a few products that can be used to remove it. Non-toxic dry cleaning fluid can be used for mold that is on the surface of the hardwood floors. Once the mold has penetrated into the wood it will be necessary to repeatedly bleach and sand the wood to eliminate the mold. Ensuring that the mold is completely removed is critical as it can grow back if not eliminated. Refinishing the floor will be necessary to restore the wood to its original condition.
