Is it true that bleach kills fungus?


Answer by  Natalie14 (230)

The use ofo bleach to kill fungus is a highly debated issue. In general bleach can be used to treat fungus on hard non-porous surfaces such as bathroom counters, tubs and showers. Fungus on porous surfaces such as wood should be professionally removed by reputable mold remediation contractor who can clean up and restore the affected surfaces.

Absolutely it does. Pure bleach is a very strong caustic chemical. It will get rid of any type of fungus or bacteria it comes in contact with. The area affected should be coated several times to make sure that all the fungus gets covered. Anything not washed with it could continue to grow.

When you have fungus always inspect the area to make sure that it doesn't come back. Bleach will kill MOST of the fungus. It's 99% effective in most cases when it comes to killing germs and fungi. However since Molds and fungi are dangerous you should always see where they're coming from to prevent your family from getting sick.

It is a great cleaner for fungus, if the room is very ventilated. While it will kill the fungus it will also do damage to your lungs. So be very careful and wear a mask and rubber gloves. But make sure that the room is ventilated and you are the only person in the room. Open windows.
