How to Get Rid of Mold and Mildew and Prevent Them from Coming Back

Mold and mildew are often found in the bathroom of our houses. But there are other parts of the house where mold and mildew can spread and grow. Moisture is really a key in mold growth, along with warmth and darkness. So, essentially, the issue of mold growth in your home comes down to whether or not you have a moisture problem.

Here are the common reasons why mold grows in your house:

  • Leaking pipes 
  • Leaking roofs 
  • Glass/window condensation 
  • Poor ventilation 
  • Wet clothes 
  • Flooding 
  • Damp basement 

To kill and remove mold and mildew from your home, soda blasting with bicarbonate is recommended. Other cleanup tactics include scrubbing moldy surfaces and using non-harmful solutions like vinegar, using dehumidifiers, and letting air and sunlight in the house.

To prevent mold from coming back, follow these tips:

  • Prevent moisture 
  • Prevent water leaks 
  • Prevent condensatReduce humidity 
  • Allow sunlight in 

While most of these tips and techniques can be done as a do-it-yourself project, it is recommended that you get comprehensive inspection and professional (baking) soda blasting from American Basement Solutions.
