I just used bleach on our wooden cabinets and not sure if my mold
problem will come back.
Is there some kind of training anyone knows which will help me through
the process of cleaning mold and which methods to use. I am not sure
if I can afford a company to do this, because I heard they can be very
Thanks in Advance.

it is not going to keep it from returning if the conditions are

conditions that allowed it to grow in the first place.
I suggest that since you don't know what a mold mitigation company
might charge, you should ask them. First check them out locally as
there are some real sleazy outfits out there. I would suggest you may
want to look for those outfits that work with property that has
suffered a fire. They have generally been in business longer and are
generally well prepared to handle mold.
If you are going to work on this yourself, you should be aware that
if you have a serious mold problem, you also have a problem that can
cause you serious medical problems, if you don't handle it right. Also
be aware that mold is almost everywhere so having a small amount of
mold in your home is not always a problem, in fact it would be a very
unusual home that does not.
I had the experience with a friend that has an outfit come in and
do some air test, which turned out (according to them) very serious.
I asked to see the results and then I asked them to go out the front
door and do the same test. .... Well what do you know, it was the
same as inside. The property backed up to a river. Of course there
is going to me mold in the air inside.
Just be careful as this stuff can be dangerous, and many of the
contractors are at least as dangerous.

However, they are not usually a
problem. But, when they land on
something that is damp or wet then
they settle and grow.
Mould does not grow on anything
that is dry.
The solution, sort out what is making
the thing they are growing on damp.
Usually, things are damp because of
water vapour from the kitchen,
bathroom or the breath we exhale.
Solution, use extractor fans in the
kitchen and bathroom, make sure
they run for at least 20 minutes after
use. Always keep the kitchen and
bathroom doors closed. Do not dry
towels or other things on radiators or
indoors at all.
Open the windows for five minutes in
the morning and evening to let the
water vapour escape.
If you don't want to get cold, buy and
use a de-humidifier, a de-humidifier will dry the place out over about
