avoid mold - Mold removal - 7 secret weapons in the fight against mold

Despite the modern materials used in construction, mold continues to be a harmful factor, present in our homes, even in the case of new apartments. The main reason for the occurrence is the humidity, encouraged by a less qualitative insulation of the block, the orientation towards the north, a poor air circulation and less good habits, which we will talk about below. Here’s what you need to do if you feel the mold is paying attention to the integrity of your home.

Provides good insulation of the home

The areas where the cold outside is easily imprinted on the walls of the home are the most prone to condensation and moisture creation. If the block is old and you know you need improvements to this chapter, talk to the manager and try to solve the problem at least for your apartment. You will save enough in the heat to be worth the investment and you will also get rid of a cause of the appearance of the mold.

In winter or summer, avoid drying clothes in the house

It is a situation faced in winter, including those with a balcony, because it is more tempting to put the clothes on the radiator, than to leave them out in the cold. The best solution for the home and health is to have access to a dryer that ensures a good ventilation, while preventing the accumulation of moisture in the home.

The alternative is to use a room where you do not spend much time and you can ventilate very well, such as the guest room. If you do not have access to additional space, a compromise is the use of the bathroom, with the same recommendation of keeping the window open as long as possible.

If you choose the toilet room as a space for drying your clothes, you can also ensure the ventilation with the help of a bathroom fan. You can easily find affordable versions, they are relatively easy to install and do not consume much, but they help protect you from moisture and mildew.

In the hot season, those with a balcony get rid of problems, because this space solves them all. Families who do not have access to such an extension of the house can opt for a system installed in front of the window, on the outside, if the homeowners association allows.

Put the hood in the kitchen and use it frequently

The kitchen hood has the same role as the fan in the bathroom, namely, to eliminate the excessive moisture specific to these two spaces. So look for an efficient model and always use it, even when you have the impression that you cook a little and do not have enough steam. The hood has more work speeds and does not consume much, but to be efficient you must activate it.

Don’t forget to open the window as often as possible, to ensure efficient air circulation and not keep the door open inside the house when cooking.

Carefully clean the affected areas with mold

One of the pitfalls of mold is to consider that you have “little” in the house. Two or three points here, a little gray or yellowish in there. What you need to know is that the mold spreads very quickly under favorable conditions, which is why it is advisable to always be on guard if you find that it starts to appear.

Check all the corners of the house and the joints of the walls, especially in the bathroom and kitchen. Don’t ignore the hidden spaces and look good behind the furniture and under the carpet. The mold does not need light and grows very well in the dark.

Once you’ve spotted the rooms in which he is present, move on. Use a solution of water and chlorine or special formulas in the store and wipe each place using a cloth. It always covers a larger area than the affected one, preventively. If it is about large blackened areas, repeat the treatment from 2 to 3 days, and in the case of small portions that are deleted from the first attempt, pass once a week, checking the condition of the wall and cleaning again, as a precautionary measure. .

Both the mold spores that you squeeze, as well as the chlorine, are harmful to your respiratory system, so use a medicine mask (over the nose and mouth) and it would not hurt to cover your eyes with protective glasses. Leave the window open to stimulate the elimination of spores and odor.

Invest in a dehumidifier

Unfortunately, in some cases, the above measures do not work and you need to use a device specially designed for high humidity. Dehumidifiers capture water vapor from the air, actively reducing the amount of moisture at a healthy level for the body, which no longer supports the development of mold spores.

Such an appliance is the only efficient solution if you move to a new apartment in winter and the masonry is not yet dry properly. They are just as good if you have flooded the house, in which case ventilation is a complementary method, which helps, but does not solve the problem.

Avoid large temperature differences in the home

mold remedies - Mold removal - 7 secret weapons in the fight against mold

Because mold works well on damp surfaces, your main goal is to avoid condensation. This, as you know, which occurs especially at high temperature differences: warm air, cold surface. Because the hot air is richer in water vapor than the cold air, when it comes in contact with the wall and drops sharply in degrees, it loses its absorption capacity and yields water in the form of microscopic or visible drops with the naked eye.

This is why it is important to keep the temperature in the house as uniform as possible during the winter, even if you are tempted to set the thermostat lower in rooms where you do not stay. Better to be warm in the whole house, than very warm in the bedroom and cold in the hall. You can ensure the uniformity of the environment and leaving the doors open, especially if you do not have radiator in certain areas.

Periodically check the water installations

The best times are in winter, before you let go of the heat and spring, when you turn off the boiler. Because you are still intervening in the operation of the water network, it is easier to remember that it is good to check the entire route, to identify any leaks or leaks. In such a case it is very important to repair and only to eliminate the effects in order to obtain lasting results.
