Feeling Green? Just Clean!

Mold is a naturally occurring organism that can exist in many areas of your home, from your refrigerator to your shower, and may dramatically affect your health. It multiplies and spreads quickly and can thus become an oft-occurring nuisance to homeowners and business owners. Mold can cause humans to become extremely ill and also damages property. If you are experiencing a mold problem in your home or business, or simply looking for ways to prevent mold, continue reading to learn more about several simple ways to keep mold out of your home.

  1. Clean out your refrigerator often. Avoid buying more food than you think you will lose in a reasonable amount of time. Sometimes people buy more food than they end up using, which often results in moldy food items and wasted money. To prevent mold from growing on and consuming your food products, eat your food before it expires and keep an eye on items like vegetables and fruits that tend to ripen and decay quickly. Additionally, take inventory of your refrigerator often and throw away expired items to keep mold from growing and spreading.
  2. Clean up liquid spills. This suggestion might seem like an obvious one, but many people do not clean up liquid spills, specifically water spills, or do not clean them up thoroughly enough. Liquid spills on surfaces, especially flooring, can cause mold to grow and spread quickly, often unbeknownst to homeowners and business owners. When cleaning up a spill, make sure that you remove as much liquid as possible and check underneath furniture and other items to make sure that you are not missing liquid deposits.
  3. Wash your bathroom items regularly. Because bathroom features experience large amounts of moisture on a regular basis, mold may be more likely to grow in bathrooms. Clean your towels regularly and hang them in fresh air to dry after using them to keep mold from growing on them. Check surfaces, cabinets and others areas for mold and scrub your shower and bathtub often to prevent mold build-up.
