Mold removal of furniture (The standard method)
Mold removal of furniture standard method. When you clean the upholstery, take the item outside and place it in direct sunlight to kill the mold. A direct sunlight source prevents the mold from propagating throughout the house as you clean it.

Vacuum cleaning upholstery should be done using the brush attachment on a vacuum with a filter.

After you’ve made the paste, spread it on the mould where vinegar was sprayed. Do this for every mould where vinegar was sprayed. Ensure that all surfaces of the mould are covered in the paste. The paste should be left on the mould for some time. When the soda has dried, remove the remains by vacuuming or brushing the couch. Don’t forget to restore your upholstery thoroughly with cleaning.
