It won’t.  Have you ever noticed that your walls or bathrooms look sparkling clean after a bleach deep clean, but that it creeps back within a matter of days? That’s because bleach is powerful to remove surface mould, but it isn’t strong enough to kill off the organism, which is why you find it comes back with a vengeance.

If you have a mould problem in commercial space,or your home, it’s critical that you kill off the mould organism to protect your employees and family members.  Killing the organism at the source will also save you time and money on repetitive cleaning.
