Are you sick and tired of seeing the same dirty, mouldy pathways when you drive home? Well worry no more because here is a couple of ways to get rid of it brought to you by Super Pressure Cleaning. Mold tends to grow on concrete surfaces like pathways. You should remove this mold quickly as the longer you leave it, the harder it becomes to remove.

Elbow Grease

One of the hardest methods to kill mold is with pure elbow grease. What you’re going to need to grab is a metal scrubbing brush or anything with hard bristles. Bunnings has a great range of scrub brushes that will be perfect for the job.You can also use scouring powder to help remove mold with a scrub brush. Firstly, rinse the area thoroughly with clean water, from either a hose or a spray bottle.

Steam Cleaning

You can also kill mold and remove it from concrete by using a quality steam cleaner. Firstly, Load the water into the steam cleaner and give time for the machine to warm up. Next, blast the mold with spurts of hot steam. Lastly rinse the area with clean water from your garden hose. Try to wear protective clothing and enclosed shoes to avoid direct contact with the steam. Steam can produce serious burns on bare skin.

The water produced after rinsing the surface will contain mold spores. It is recommended that you wear protective gloves and a mouth and nose mask to prevent inhaling these deadly mould spores. Make sure the area stays wet to prevent the mould spores from becoming airborne. Wash your work clothes immediately after finishing the job to kill any spores on your clothing.
