Use These Ingredients To Successfully Remove Mold From Wood
Having to look at mold-ridden wooden surfaces can be distressing for any homeowner. Luckily, you can use soapy water or white vinegar to remove mold from wood.
Wear a mask, goggles, and rubber gloves to prevent mold spores from entering your lungs. Then, suck up any loose mold from your wooden surface using a HEPA filter-fitted vacuum.
After vacuuming, mix 1 teaspoon of dish soap in a bottle of warm water and spray the soapy solution on the moldy wooden surface.
Scrub the moldy wooden surface lightly using a brush, and pat dry it with a towel or use a dehumidifier. Be sure to dry it completely to prevent mold from growing back.
If the mold doesn't come out, mix 50:50 white vinegar and warm water, spray it on the wooden surface, and let it dry for an hour. Finally, wipe with a damp cloth before drying it.
