No one wants to find mold or mildew in their home. If you want to try to prevent the growth of mold or mildew in your home, there are some home remedies and steps you can take on your own.
- Air out the Bathroom- Out of all the rooms in your home, the bathroom is most likely the room that sees the most humidity and moisture. Make sure to air out your bathroom and circulate the air after humidity and moisture builds to help prevent mold from growing. Cleaning your bathroom often, including your shower curtain, will also help to prevent mold and mildew.
- Clean your Fabric- If you have upholstered or fabric furniture in an area of your home, such as your basement, that sees moisture often, the furniture will need to be cleaned often. If you believe that mildew or mold is already forming, try to take the furniture or fabric outdoors so mold spores can’t spread inside your home. Cleaning tactics to use include vacuuming the furniture first and using a combination of chlorine bleach and hot water.
- Don’t let Spores Take Over- There are plenty of ways to prevent even spores from gaining traction in your home. Be sure to eliminate any moisture in your home with fans and dehumidifiers. Clean your rooms and furniture often and when leaks are found, have them replaced immediately.
