How to Clean the Mold Off of Your House in Florida

  • What you need
  • Protective goggles
  • Rubber gloves
  • 100 ft garden hose
  • Gallon of bleach
  • Twelve foot ladder
  • House wash hook up for your hose
  • Scrubber with four to six foot handle

Before you start inspecting your mold. Make sure you do mold inspection so that you can analyze the situation that is in front of you. You can thereafter decide to move forward with the repair on your own or you can hire some professional to do that for you.

First step- go to the store and buy the products. If you have a house, you should have a garden hose and a ladder. If you don’t have a ladder, borrow one from your neighbor. Buy the rest of the supplies at Walmart or your local Home Depot. When you get home, get ready for two to three hours of work.

Second step- Attack the mold. Set up your ladder, so you can climb on to the roof of your house. Connect the hose to the water connection to your house. Take the other end of the hose, protective goggles, rubber gloves, gallon of bleach, house wash hook up, and scrubber up on to the roof. Make sure you are wearing a long sleeve shirt, long pants, and tennis shoes.

Step three-you are on the roof with all of your gear. Take the house wash hook up container and fill it with bleach. After you fill it up with bleach, connect it to the end of your hose. Go down the ladder and turn the water on. Go back up on the roof and place your rubber gloves on your hands and your goggles on your face (to protect your eyes). Point the hose towards the moldy walls and turn on the house wash mechanism. Spray the mold down over and over again with the bleach. Spray until your house wash bottle is empty. Turn the mechanism on the house wash hook up to off and scrub the mold with the scrub brush. Wait five minutes and take a breather. Turn the house wash hook up on to spray the water and spray the mold off of your house.

Step four- Continue step three over and over until your house is completely rid of the mold. The bleach should keep the mold away from your house for months. It all depends on how bad the mold is in Florida during the year.

Step five- take everything down off of the roof. Take the ladder down and put everything away. If you borrowed the ladder from your neighbor, give it back to him. Take off of your goggles and rubber gloves and look at your beautiful house. You have done such a good job

Cost -$45.00 including hose, not including ladder. Cost will vary depending on where you shop. You saved at least $100.00 on this one job. Aren’t you happy?

Note- you can buy an expensive power washer and do the same job in a little less time. You can hire somebody each year to do the job for you and it will cost you a bundle.
