It is wet, dark, and humid. Conditions for one of the most common issues that all moms fear. MOLD. While living in Texas has its perks the humidity is enough for that mold in our homes to grow at the speed of light. Like most of us we clean our homes come back in a few days and BAM! the mold is back. No worries we can help.
One of the first tips is to learn how to control the humidity levels in your home in areas such as the showers and bathroom areas. By simply keeping the shower doors and curtains open or drawn back you can make sure that there is enough ventilation to keep the moisture from being trapped.
Once the mold is spotted it should be cleaned up immediately. Mold can cause many health issues and some are a lot more sensitive to it than others. Especially our kids and fur babies.
To remove mold from hard surfaces, while using soap and water or even some commercial products helps, the best and most effective way is to use household laundry bleach. By simply spraying the affected areas with a solution of 1 cup of bleach to 1 gallon of water you can remove the harmful mold as well as the yucky black stains it leaves behind. Caution in doing so make sure windows and doors are open to provide fresh air as well as to wear non-porous gloves and protective eye ware.
In occasions the mold will get under the sealant and unfortunately once it has it gets into the pours of that sealant and the sealant will have to be removed to get rid of all the mold. So be sure to check all of your sealants in the bathroom area or even kitchen areas for weak spots that need to be replaced. By doing so you could save yourself a lot of trouble and keep your family from getting sick.
