Three Bathroom Cleaning Strategies That Can Help You Naturally Prevent Mold And Mildew From Forming

Mold and mildew can be real problems for homeowners and renters alike. Whether you've had mold problems in the past, heard horror stories of people who have had mold problems, or are worried about mold because your home seems to be the sort of environment in which mold likes to grow, taking steps to prevent mold growth before it starts is the smartest thing you can do. However, you should take into account the fact that smart cleaning strategies can also help prevent mold naturally even without using dedicated mold prevention techniques. Here are three ways that your bathroom cleaning strategies may be helping you protect your home from mold.

1. Using natural anti-fungal cleaners

If you use bleach based cleaners, you'll be sure to kill any visible mold each time you clean. However, if you use natural DIY cleaners,such as vinegar or hydrogen peroxide based cleaners regularly, you can kill any mold roots trying to establish themselves in the surface, in addition to killing any visible mold that is already trying to grow.

2. Using fresh air and sunlight

Fresh air and sunlight can both help fight mold growth. It's true that if you open your windows, mold spores can float in with the breeze. However, mold spores are already present in your house as well and can come in every time you open the door, so that's not a reason to keep your windows closed. More importantly, increased ventilation will reduce the likelihood of creating an environment that is moist enough for mold. Plus, the UV rays of the sun can help kill mold, as well as making the environment less hospitable for mold to start growing in. Mold prefers dark corners with low air circulation. So, if you open up your windows for ventilation and airing out the bathroom after you clean it, this can actually help prevent mold growth.

3. Hanging a towel to dry

If you're a mom, you probably spend a lot of more time picking up after other people's showers then you think you ought to. But whether you successfully teach your kids to pick up their own towels or you do it yourself, hanging towels to dry is not just a tidy habit, but also a mold prevention strategy. That's because if you leave towels on the floor while they're damp, they can become the perfect place for mold and mildew growth. Mold growth in the towels is much less likely to happen if you hang them up and ensure that they dry out every day.
