Mold has always been thought to be a minor issue for some families where major infestations have not taken place yet. However, what many have not known yet is that mold puts your health at risks especially homes with children and elderly. As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure, which applies to tackling mold from its source rather than having to get rid of it when it develops and worsens. Always ensure your home is getting enough ventilation even though you might need to keep the windows and doors closed as to keep the heat in. Exhaust fans are good for humid areas like bathrooms and kitchens while ventilation machines work well too as an alternative for natural wind/air. Always keep common damp areas dry like wall tiles or wooden kitchen tops to minimize the thriving of mold. After which, keep them mold-free by spraying a mixture of baking soda and vinegar to prevent future mold infestations.

Make sure that all places and house hold articles must be dry so that mold will not form. If formed earlier then use vinegar for cleaning it. For this spray vinegar on mold and after sometime scrub it with cotton cloth mold will removed definitely.

I had these guys remove the black streaks and mold from my roof Now, it looks like brand new! The shingle manufacturers recommended their soft-wash system as they do not use a power washer. A power washer will void your shingle warranty. The best part about it, my insurance company paid for the certified roof cleaning in Michigan.


Good Luck
