Mold is a plague. But don’t you worry – Action Cleaning Services NY is bringing you the solution!

How to remove mold – eliminating the problem

Prepare a solution with 16oz of water and 16oz of bleach and spray it all over the affected places. Leave it for 30 minutes and apply it again.

Leave it for another 30 minutes and then sand the wall with a thin sandpaper.

Wait 24 hours and repaint the wall with a thin layer of pain.

How to remove mold – preventing the problem

If you live in a house that is prone to mold, the first thing you want to do is leave big furniture (like your couch) at least 2 inches away from the wall. Ventilation is your antidote.

If you have a built-in closet, use chemical or electric dehumidifiers.

Never use plastic bags to store clothes. Always keep them in non-woven fabric bags.

Keep the doors open for at least 10 minutes every day, and choose a day of the week to leave all doors open for at least 6 hours. Like we said, ventilation is your antidote.

How to remove mold – hiding the smell

One easy way to remove the smell is by spraying a little of white vinegar on the internal walls of your closets and wardrobes, leaving the doors open until it dries. Repeat the procedure several times.

There’s always going to be mold where there’s no ventilation. You must treat the problem at its source – if you don’t, mold is always coming back. Make sure there are no leaks in our house; sometimes the problem is in your AC system and/or roof.
