At Home Mold Treatments


Mold is a real problem here in Florida. The Tampa Bay area sees higher temperatures and humidity the majority of our calendar year. The Comfort Authority has assembled a tip sheet for you to fight mold at home with DIY treatment hacks. 

Mold Treatment Tips

  • When humid conditions are present mold can grow within 24-48 hours. Humid areas of your home include bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens.
  • Regular cleaning can prevent mold. For example, cleaning grout and shower doors, repairing leaks immediately, and keeping your home humidity at an acceptable level all reduce mold growth.
  • Hydrogen peroxide at a 3% concentration can kill mold if saturated, left on for 10 minutes, and then fully wiped off. Make sure the area is fully wiped dry after cleaning.
  • White vinegar kills over 80% of mold spores.  This inexpensive cleaning agent is great for preventing mold. Take a  ¼ tablespoon of white vinegar in a water spray bottle, spray moldy area, and scrub away mold.

If you find evidence of mold in your air conditioner or ductwork, call the Comfort Authority at (813) 518-8030 to schedule service. Don’t forget to ask about our monthly specials and payment plans.
