How to Clean Moldy Furniture

Step 1

Fill a bucket with warm water and add a liberal amount of laundry detergent.

Step 2

Use your cleaning solution and a large sponge to scrub down the entire surface of the moldy furniture. If possible, clean the furniture outside in sunny weather.

Step 3

Empty the bucket and rinse it clean while allowing the furniture to dry.

Step 4

Create a new cleaning solution by mixing together 1 gallon of water and 1/4 cup of bleach.

Step 5

Use your sponge to wipe down the moldy furniture with the new cleaning solution, scrubbing where there is noticeable mold.

Step 6

Let the furniture dry for about 20 minutes.

Step 7

Wipe down the moldy furniture again using the bleach cleaning solution, and let it dry for another 20 minutes.

Step 8

Rinse off the furniture with clean water. Two bleach treatments should be enough to remove all the mold.
