Keeping a tidy home can quickly get away from most people when life gets busy, and the kids get messy. Spending those regular hours vacuuming, dusting, and cleaning your home can often not be enough when it comes to mould removal and prevention. This can also lead to dangerous health issues and on-going side effects which is the main reason to hire a mould cleaner. Especially when tackling the bathroom or hard to reach places. Mould removal is a common household chore that can swiftly get out of hand if left untreated.
When you first spot traces of mould it’s important to act quickly with a few different home remedies before needing to call in the mould cleaners. The simple budget friendly trick of diluted white vinegar and a microfibre cloth, has proven to be helpful when dealing with early mould cleaning. Mild detergents and sugar soap have also been successful when cleaning mould from walls, floors, and tiles. Make sure these areas are dried thoroughly after cleaning, to ensure any damp is not left in the area. Regular use of dehumidifiers can also help with day-to-day prevention.
If these lighter solutions do not work, diluted bleach or stronger commercial mould cleaning products can be used. Make sure to only use these products in ventilated areas with a mask and gloves to protect yourself from any chemical residue. When working in bathrooms and closed spaces, leave the door open, open a window or turn the vent on and always closely follow the instructions on the back of these products for mould removal.
Never dry brush a mouldy area or clothing as it can release spores into the air that will spread or possibly cause an allergic reaction in some people. If you are allergic to mould, by breathing in the spores, you may experience coughing and itchy eyes. A mould allergy can also be linked to asthma and exposure can cause restricted airways. Excessive exposure of mould within children is also exceptionally dangerous. Therefore, it’s important to keep track of your mould cleaning schedule before needing to hire mould cleaners.
There are many different types of mould that can infect your home including the dangerous kinds to look out for such as “Toxic or Black” mould and Trichoderma mould. These types of mould are very dangerous with serious contributing health conditions if left untreated. Trichoderma mould begins to grow with a white or off-white colour before maturing into a green colour, while toxic mould has a slimy black appearance and musty odour. This type of mould removal should be handled by professional mould cleaners.
It can be daunting knowing what types of mould are growing in your home and the best ways to efficiently kill the mould, rather than simply bleaching the surface.
