Washing Machine

Mold can be dangerous to your health. Here are three generally overlooked places where mold loves to grow:

 (1)In the detergent chamber of your washing machine – Keep the drawer open after every wash so that the chamber can dry out.  Do not keep it a damp, dark place! Check out my upcoming video on my favorite washing machine.

 (2)Under window sills & in sink cabinets - Where there is a leaky window or a leaky pipe, over time there will be mold under the windowsill and/or in the cabinet.  Don’t take leaks around windows and doors or under sinks lightly – fix them to avoid mold issues.

 (3)On the leather in cars parked in damp garages – It’s only a matter of time.  Mold loves to grow on leather.  Avoid this costly mold clean – make sure your garage has airflow.  When a garage or basement feels dank there will likely be a mold issue at some point in time – install proper venting right away.

Dark and damp are the two factors needed for mold to growth.  Cleaning up mold is time-consuming and, without proper protection can be hazardous to your health. Stay clear of molding problems with a little home maintenance and awareness.
