Even if you keep a pretty clean house, mold can still crop up unexpectedly just about anywhere.

Cleaning up some mold problems on your own can be a quick and inexpensive solution, if you don’t mind the unpleasant nature of the task. If you prefer to have a professional help you out, there are many services like PuroClean, that offer mold mitigation in new Jersey, that can do the work for you.

But if you’re tackling that mold or mildew yourself, here are some tips:
