NOBODY wants to find black mold in their home.
But if you discover any, a cleaning and lifestyle guru has an easy way to remove them without a single harsh chemical.
Australian home cleaning and organization guru Carolina McCauley has a step-by-step video tutorial on how to remove black mold on her popular Tick ââtock Account.
First, she advised people to fill a spray bottle with undiluted vinegar.
Next, she said to spray it directly on the black mold and let it sit for 20 minutes.
In the video, she is handling black mold around her window.
Once the time was up, she said to just wipe it off with a cloth.
“Nice and clean again,” she concluded.
Untreated black mold can cause a number of health problems in humans, including: B. “stuffy nose, sore throat, coughing or wheezing, burning eyes or rash”. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In asthma sufferers, the reaction may be stronger.
Black mold is mainly found in places with moisture such as faucets, pipes, and windows.
When cleaning up black mold yourself, it is best to take safety precautions such as wearing gloves and a face mask to avoid direct contact with the mold and avoid inhalation.
While Carolina’s tip has been welcomed by its followers, it is best to leave larger cases of mold growth to professionals.
SafeWise, a crime and security trends website, recommends calling a professional if your black mold has grown to more than 10 square feet in radius.
Not only is vinegar great for cleaning up black mold.
Vinegar can be used to lighten clothes, remove limescale from toilets, clean raw vegetables, and much more.
