Even with regular cleaning, it is common for mold to form in the shower and sink. These areas are often damp and warm, creating the perfect environment for mold to grow. What should you use to get rid of the mold?

The problem with mold is that you can’t just scrub it off. This awful fungus needs to be killed to prevent the mold from growing back. If you just wipe away the visible marks, it is likely that microscopic spores were left behind that could lead to mold problems again in the future.

So, it is important that you are using the right tools to kill the organisms. Getting rid of mold will make your bathroom look great, and you will protect the health of your family.

A big preventative measure is to increase air flow in the room and maximize sun exposure when possible. Open up the windows and let the moist air out. After showering, take a moment to wipe down the area to minimize moisture levels during the day.

Safe Cleaning Products for Your Home

A basic bathroom cleaner won’t have the right ingredients to kill mold. Instead, use safer alternative such as tea tree oil and vinegar for minor mold problems. In a spray bottle, mix 1 teaspoon of tea tree oil with 1 cup of vinegar. Spray the solution on the affected areas and let it sit for five minutes to an hour. Make a paste of baking soda and water, then scrub the area with a bristle brush, to help lift the stains mold has left behind.

There are times when it might be necessary to use an antimicrobial cleaner. Thankfully, since the spur of green initiatives, there are products manufactured using “nature” to help us combat this awful intruder. For serious mold problems, it is best to call an experienced company for help.
