black mold?

how do you get rid of black mold? i have tried bleach water and lysol. It doesn't work. it looks like the mold has eaten away a lot of the wood beams. its in my basement, so i can't spend much time down there to do laundry, or even have my boys play room set up. I have been having allergy attacks at night mostly or when i come upstairs from being down there. any suggestions?

  • I'm not sure, but that can be very dangerous. :/ if you're renting talk to your landlord. Otherwise I might go to a home improvement store and see what they suggest you do.

  • straight chlorhine for the pool. I have used this on drywall and it never came back... saturate the wood and see if it works... I would also call to the health dept anonymous and ask if they know if that does not get the mold out of the wood. Good Luck.

  • Hope you get rid of it soon. We waited too long and it was too expensive to get taken care of. I had the worst headaches, and nose bleeds. Thank goodness we found it and got outta there! I was beginning to get muscle cramps and nausious at all hours of the day.

    Good luck!
