Mold is a completely natural fungi and is basically everywhere and that is ok. The issues come about when you have a moist environment. This fungus will move in and begin to take over your home, with the bathroom being their favorite spot, due to excess moisture and sometimes poor ventilation. Plumbing leaks, the use of humidifiers in enclosed areas will intensify the problem and should be sorted out immediately.
Fungus growing in your house can lead to adverse health conditions, especially respiratory symptoms. If someone suffers from asthma, this can worsen the difficulty. One should also take care if there are small children being exposed to the spores.
The problem with this fungus is that you generally only see about 10% of it, the rest is hidden beyond sight, so that when you treat only what is clearly visible, you are unfortunately not even beginning to approach the problem.
Especially if your issue is with the porous surface, then you are going to need a fogger. This will help to kill the fungus at its roots and hopefully you can prevent this from becoming a long-term nightmare.
Below we have done a mold bomb fogger review of the options available.

Bleaching Does Not Work
Bleach is a wonderful household disinfectant and comes really close to killing all household germs and bacteria. When applied to mold, however, it just makes it look less visible by changing the color. In some cases it does kill the fungus, but only on the surface. The problem is that the actual membrane under the surface still thrives and may even begin growing more rapidly after the treatment. Unfortunately many people recommend bleach and sit with this problem that is annoying and remains unsolved for them. By all means, clean the rest of your surfaces with bleach though!
Vinegar Can Work..Sometimes
As long as you can reach it and it is not too widespread, then vinegar can do the trick. Pour some into a spray bottle, get some protective gear on and go after the suckers. Please don’t dilute the vinegar, you’re going to need every ounce of strength that is available. Once you have sprayed the vinegar directly onto the mold, leave it to sit for at least an hour or so. Then you scrub away and hopefully get rid of all the nasties. If not,then one of the foggers reviewed above will probably be necessary.
