Cleaning baseboards is not a fun task but somebody has to do it. They can get extremely dirty and more importantly can grow mold. Cleaning can be dangerous but the task itself is fairly easy if you have time to do it. Precautions need to be taken and the mold needs to be eliminated in your workplace. Here are some steps to getting rid of mold on your baseboards.
Cover all the doors and vents leading into the room with the plastic tarp and duct tape to create a sealed-in room.
Use the dehumidifier to dry out the room as much as possible. Open up windows to keep the room dry.
Vacuum out any dust in the room. Make sure the room is completely clean before you begin attacking the mold. Place an exhaust fan next to an open window to draw any dust out of the room.
Spray the mold with water from the spray bottle. This will keep it from getting airborne and possibly contaminating other areas.
Once the mold is wet, clean the with walls and baseboards with a lint-free rag in a solution of laundry detergent. Place the solution in a bucket and move the bucket around the room with you as you clean.
After the mold has been cleaned away, clean the area again with anti-mold disinfectant. This will help kill any microscopic mold spores you may have missed. Anti-mold disinfectant can be purchased at any home improvement store.
- Discard any items you used in the cleaning process. Toss out anything you used to clean the mold with in a plastic trash bag and double bag it. Do not walk though the house with the bag. Instead throw it out a window before you take it to the trash
