Does Lysol kill mold?

Answer

According to the Lysol website, Lysol Disinfectant Spray kills 99.9 percent of mold and mildew. It also kills most odor-causing bacteria, bacteria on surfaces and viruses.

It’s important to get the Lysol Disinfectant Spray model of the product in order to kill mold. Not all Lysol products are designed to kill mold at the same level. Mold is dangerous to humans, since breathing in the mold causes respiratory problems. Many people are allergic to mold and have severe reactions if there is too much mold in the air. It is also important to spray Lysol disinfectant directly onto moldy areas in order to kill the mold. Spraying nearby does not have the same effect. Other ways to control mold include controlling the level of humidity in the affected area and quickly fixing leaky roofs, pipes and windows. Mold grows where there is moisture. Thoroughly cleaning damp areas after any kind of flooding by drying the area also helps with mold problems by at least preventing their spread. Then, Lysol Disinfectant Spray or other household cleaning products are employed to kill the existing mold. This prevents any new mold from growing on the affected area after the initial mold is killed.
