Home Remedies for Fighting Mold

In general, home and business owners need to call on professionals for efficient mold removal services. There are a few clever ways to combat mold with household products including vinegar, tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract.

Tea Tree Oil

From moldy ceilings to leaky roofs, tea tree oil is an expensive but ideal remedy. The smell is quite potent but will lessen within days.

Mix 2 teaspoons of tea tree oil with 2 cups of water, combine in a spray bottle, shake and spray on the infected area.

Grapefruit Seed Extract

If you want an odor free mold remover, try grapefruit seed extract. Use 20 drops of grapefruit seed extract and 2 cups of water. Mix in a spray bottle as well and apply to mold.

Vinegar Spray

Vinegar can kill up to 82% of mold. Pour white, distilled vinegar into a spray bottle and spray on the moldy area. Let the vinegar set on the mold without rinsing. Add essential oils if the smell is too overpowering.
