Mold can be easy to miss in your home even as it’s spreading.
Sure enough, mold can cause illness if it isn’t taken care of as soon as possible. In these times, it’s more important than ever to avoid sickness, so cleaning off mold is an extra precautionary measure.
If you are having trouble cleaning off mold in your home, consider the following tips:
Check on areas with lots of moisture
Mold builds up in areas with a lot of moisture.
Bathrooms are a good example along with the kitchen and laundry area. That said, be sure to clean and dry off areas in your home such as these to prevent mold from building up in the first place.
Hydrogen peroxide is a natural antifungal solution, which makes it perfect for attacking mold spores.
Apply this solution using a spray bottle to clean surfaces in your bathroom, kitchen, and other places in your home where you suspect mold may be building up. Be sure to leave it on for about 10 minutes before firmly and thoroughly wiping it down to remove stains.
A common household ingredient that can be used for many cleaning purposes, vinegar can also be used to clean off molds. Not only that, but vinegar also deodorizes a messy stain left by molds while it disinfects surrounding areas in the process.
Spray it directly on a problem area and leave it there for an hour before wiping it clean with water and drying it. Don’t worry about the smell, it will clear out in a couple of hours.
Another common ingredient which is great for absorbing and deodorizing smells is baking soda.
To use baking soda to clear out molds, mix in a tablespoon of it in some water before. You can then spray the solution on a moldy surface and clean it away with a scrub brush. Rinse the area off with water and repeat this process a few times before leaving it to dry.
