Kitchen sink mold removal. Let us show
you a few steps. Hey guys, Jim here with the twin home
experts today we're doing another kitchen sink mold removal job. We get
questions all the time how do I identify if there is mold underneath the kitchen
sink? Well, in this case, you can see clear evidence of massive water damage and
mold that is actually on the drywall as well as on the bottom of this cabinet. So
one of the things that we get question all the time is can I use bleach/ Can I
use white vinegar, baking soda? None of those work.
They don't get rid of the
actual root of the mold. The mold that's embedded inside the organic materials
such as drywall and wood. You want to use a very aggressive antimicrobial. And when
you're using an antimicrobial like this they have to use protective equipment
such as rubber gloves, Tyvek suits, and a mask. Let me show you what our product
does underneath the kitchen cabinet. So we want to go ahead and let that sit
as you can see here it's starting to eat away the biofilm. So we let this sit here
and a good anti microbial will react this way. So we're gonna go ahead and
show you the next shot here. Okay guys so now we've let that sit for about I don't
know forty seconds a minute.
Take your rag here and it should just wipe off
here like this. Okay so you want to do this a couple
different times you want to do this a couple times but you can see just even
the first wipe down when a good antimicrobial will do to get rid of mold
on drywall. All right, so what's that first wipe down is done we're gonna go
ahead and spray it again. Now one of the things to keep in mind when you're
identifying mold and treating mold underneath the kitchen sink is when you
have material like this that's compromised it's gonna have to be cut
out bagged and disposed. The other thing to keep in mind when you're doing
kitchen sink mold remediation as you build a critical barrier like we've done
here. What this does is it just creates a working space so mold spores do not
escape and go into the other parts of the property. The other thing to keep in
mind is an air scrubber. This air scrubber has a HEPA filtration so any
mold that's cross contaminating into the earth our air scrubber is going to pick
it up and take it out that window there, okay.
So we're going to go ahead and
continue on here. Okay guys so one of the things when you're identifying mold is
you've got to make sure that all leaks, all water sources have been identified.
One of the biggest things here is faucets and the top of granite. Look for
areas around the sink that caused and have any breaches because water dumps
very slowly over a long period of time. So side sprays, soap dispensers, faucets,
come down here, pea traps, water lines. These are all areas of concern that
cause the most destruction to a kitchen cabinet.
So keep in mind when you're treating the mold that's one thing but taking care of
the actual problem that's creating the mold is your biggest source and that is
If you've got to stop all water sources.
One of the key factors of when you're dealing with this type of kitchen sink
mold is you waterproof the bottom and put a water alarm. So that way in the
future if you ever do have a leak you're gonna be alerted. Alright folks you're
