The most common cause of mold is the moistening of the walling during the house building and poor ventilation. However, people often help the mold to grow without realizing it.

 

In the beginning, mold isn't visible. Later we can't only see it but also smell the mold. Their microscopic particles are dangerous for our organism and that's why we need to get rid of it as soon as possible.

How to effectively remove the mold for good

You need to realize that getting rid of mold without eliminating the humidity in the room will lead to another mold sooner or later. It's necessary to find out the reason for the high humidity in the premises and eliminate it. After you have lowered the humidity, you can start removing the mold.
