It may also grow in your refrigerators or on leather items. Mold is not only an annoying problem, but it can be harmful to your health. Therefore, it is important to get rid of mold at its early stages. Below are some tips on eliminating mold in your home:  

Bleach

Chlorine bleach can help kill toxic black molds. Mix one cup of chlorine bleach and one gallon of water in a spray bottle. Now spray this mixture all over places with mold growth.

Vinegar

If you don’t like harsh chemicals like chlorine bleach, then you can opt for undiluted form of white vinegar to eliminate molds from your bathroom and kitchen.

Rubbing Alcohol

Alcohol is as a great remedy for removing molds. Soak a soft cotton ball in alcohol and then rub it over the affected surfaces. It is commonly used to eliminate molds on leather items that may be damaged by harsh chemicals.

The key to preventing and eliminating mold is to keep your house moisture free. And if you would like to hire a professional maid service to help you with your cleaning duties, The Maids of Greater Lehigh Valley, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania would be happy to assist you!
