Do you have mold problems at home?

               Mold is a common problem at home. It is a type of fungus. Mold can be found indoors our outdoors and grows in damp, warm, humid environments. Mildew is the type of mold that thrives in the home. It is white or grayish in color. It usually grows in shower stalls and bathrooms. 

               Mold reproduces by forming spores that can travel through the air. These are tiny spores that are invisible to the naked eye. These spores travel through outdoor and indoor air and when they land on a moist surface, mold can start to grow. 

               Bathrooms, shower stalls, and basements are typical moist areas that are susceptible to mold growth. Mold can also grow on other moist areas of the house such as the drywall, ceiling tiles, carpets, furniture, ductwork, roofing, paneling, wallpaper, under sinks, and the areas around plumbing pipes. Mold can appear in different colors. It sometimes appears in spots accompanied by a musty odor. 

               Not only do molds look disgusting, but they also cause health effects because of the allergy-causing substances that mold spores release into the air. Allergic reactions to mold are the most common health effects of mold and they can happen immediately or develop after a period of time. Some symptoms and signs of mold allergy are sneezing, runny nose, coughing, wheezing, watery eyes, redness of the eyes, itchy eyes and skin irritation. Mold spores may also cause asthma attacks. Some people may also develop severe reactions to mold exposures and experience fever and difficulty in breathing.

               It is impossible to totally eliminate all mold spores inside the house. However, mold growth can be prevented by controlling moisture in the home. 


1. Repair water problems such as leaks to avoid moisture buildup.

2. Clean and dry wet areas in the home.

3. During humid seasons, use an air conditioner or air humidifier to help reduce moisture buildup.

4. Avoid using carpets in humid areas like the basement and bathrooms.

5. Keep good ventilation in the home to control dampness.


                   If there are already molds and mildew in your house, you have to get rid of them. Some people use bleach to remove molds but as you know, bleach is very toxic. It is a very powerful chemical that can hurt your skin, eyes, and lungs. It also leaves a toxic scent that lingers in the air. 

                   Using natural ingredients is always the best option in the household. A homemade mold remover is a safe and natural way to get rid of mold and eliminate its health risks without using toxic cleaners or chemicals. Using natural ingredients is better and safer for people, pets and for the environment. 

                   Vinegar is a popular natural cleaning ingredient. It is a mild acid that can kill some mold species and can prevent mold outbreaks in the future. It is also a naturally antimicrobial substance. Tea tree essential oil is known for its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is capable of killing all types of molds. Tea tree oil has a strong smell but it is harmless to people and pets and it goes away after some time. Of all the natural mold killing solutions, tea tree oil is the most effective. 


    1. Pour ½ cup distilled vinegar in a spray bottle.

    2. Add 15 drops of tea tree essential oil.

    3. Shake the bottle and spray directly to moldy surfaces.

    4. Don’t touch the moldy surface and let it sit for 30 minutes.

    5. Using a brush, scrub the mold away and rinse. 

                   This homemade mold remover spray can also be used to prevent mildew formation in the bathroom and other humid places.
