The myth of bleach and mold Common myth- Bleach kills mold

Bleach is not the answer to a mold problem.

Does this surprise you?  For many homeowners, bleach seems to be the perfect solution to mold.  You can easily buy it at your local store and with a simple application, your problem seems to have vanished...or has it?  Is bleach effective in mold remediation or could it be making the problem worse?

Bleach can actually further mold growth especially when it is found on a porous surface.  Applying bleach to a surface may mask the problem for the moment, but the chlorine content of the bleach evaporates quickly leaving all that water behind which can soak in to the surface taking that moisture to the root of the mold.  A short time later and the problem is worse than ever.
