Your home is vulnerable to mold spores, which are unattractive and dangerous. Secretly, they wait until the right moment comes and, carried by air currents, they reach inside the rooms.
The tactic they use is to wait until favorable conditions exist before they begin to show themselves. In other words, favorable conditions are high humidity and high air temperature.
The formation of mold is largely determined by humidity.
✅ In order to prevent mold from forming in your home, you need to keep the humidity level normal. An average humidity level of 65 to 70% is considered normal. A humidity level that exceeds 80% will definitely determine the ideal environment for mold growth. It is necessary to ensure adequate ventilation in order to maintain a normal humidity level. It is recommended to ventilate the rooms daily, preferably when it’s sunny outside, and not on rainy days.
✅ As well as its unsightly appearance and ability to damage walls and furniture, mold poses a very serious health risk, especially to children. It can trigger asthma attacks.
✅ The first step in removing mold from walls is to eliminate the main cause of the problem. Consequently, mold growth can be caused by damaged gutters, an improperly constructed roof, insufficient insulation, or defective wall insulation.
✅ In order to fight mold effectively, you should go beyond just removing mold from the walls. Analyze the areas behind furniture and hidden corners as well.
To stay away from chemical-based solutions, you can make your own natural products.
A vinegar and water solution is one of the most common methods. This solution is sprinkled on the walls and allowed to soak for several hours. Following this, rub the area with a damp cloth or a brush.
In addition to killing mold spores, vinegar also kills viruses and bacteria. Baking soda can be added to this solution as a gentle disinfectant to get rid of mildew without leaving a bad odor.
You can also remove mold using a solution containing alcohol. You can clean up moldy areas by wiping them with a solution made from mixing a teaspoon of alcohol with a 1/4 gallon of water. Mold-damaged wooden objects can be cleaned with this solution. Repetition of the cleaning method every two to three months will ensure that mold is permanently removed.
⚠ Ensure that the room is properly ventilated after the operation. When removing mold, always wear gloves and goggles.
