Mold or mildew growing in your home is more than an unsightly problem. Both can cause serious health problems, especially if you have immune issues or allergies. Mold can also damage your home’s structure long-term, which is why you must know how to locate and remove it. You’ll find help doing both below.

Remember, cleaning mold stirs up its spores, so you should always wear protective clothing and consider face protection, too. Also, close the door to the area where you’re cleaning mold to keep the spores out of your home’s air. Then, open a window if you can to bring in fresh air and ventilation.
