Allergy free houses

My husband and I have really busy lives and often don't have time to clean the house. Unfortunately, both our kids have quite bad allergies to dust and mould, which means we need to keep the house spotless, which can be quite hard. We have started having a professional cleaning service come in a few times a week to give the house a good scrub while we are at work. It means that we can come home to a clean house. It means everyone is healthier, happier and less stressed out. This blog is for other parents of kids with allergies and has tips on how you can keep your house allergen free.

Professional Cleaners | 4 Winning Strategies To Keep The Mould Away From Your Bathroom

by Clarence Shelton

Mould can single-handedly turn a sparkling bathroom into a lifeless mess with its unsightly greenish appearance and foul smell. Apart from the unsightly buildup, breathing in allergens from mould can trigger skin allergies and asthma attacks. To prevent this from happening, make sure you follow these winning strategies to keep mould away from your bathroom. If the problem persists, professional cleaners can help get rid of this problem for you. 

Look For Signs Of Damage

Even the tiniest bit of damage on the pipes leading to your bathroom can cause water to seep out of them, which can result in the buildup of mould over time. Look for vulnerable spaces near the sink, shower, and other areas where pipes run through your bathroom. If you notice damage to the pipes, you will need to get it fixed before mould starts to grow in the crevices of your walls because this can end up damaging the structural integrity of your home's foundation. 

Use A Squeegee

Water, moisture and humidity create perfect opportunities for mould to grow. This means that your shower area is most prone to the buildup of mould. To prevent this from happening, use a squeegee to eliminate water droplets from the floors and walls of your shower. Without too much water remaining on them, mould will find it difficult to grow. 

Air Your Bathroom 

Aeration is key to getting rid of excess moisture and humidity in your bathroom, so consider adding exhaust fans to the space. If you're undergoing any bathroom repairs or renovations, you may also want to open up a window to get rid of humidity by allowing air to properly leave. Better ventilation will dry up your bathroom faster and will prevent mould from growing. If you do notice any mould, professional cleaners can tackle it at its source to prevent it from re-growing in your bathroom constantly. 

Tackle Vulnerable Spots Regularly

Some parts of your bathroom are more vulnerable than others when it comes to mould growth. For instance, mould can easily grow on the corners of your shower space, on the inside of your vanity where the sink pipes reside or behind your flush tank. But these spots are easy to overlook during bathroom cleaning because they aren't visible. Make sure you use anti-mould sprays to clean these areas and get rid of mould. If your mould problem isn't as easy to tackle as you like, let professional cleaners get the job done for you.
