Deep Clean Your Kitchen For Mold Prevention

Mold is not only a pesky problem, but it is also a potentially dangerous one. It’s essential to avoid mold build-up, especially in your kitchen. Unfortunately, your mold is usually more prone to mold or mildew because of how much moisture and humidity it faces daily. Start giving your kitchen some much needed deep cleans and prevent the mold from becoming a recurring issue:

Most Common Areas

There are spots in your kitchen that will have more mold growth than others. Here are some appliances and areas to keep an eye on:
  • Dishwasher: There is a lot of increased humidity that comes with running your dishwasher. Check areas where steam is released or where you could have potential water damage.
  • Under sinks: Pipes and plumbing are very vulnerable to mold and mildew because of their moisture content and humidity.
  • Around windows: Poor sealing could cause water to leak in through your windows, which could eventually lead to mold growth.
  • The fridge: Even if your refrigerator is at the coldest temperature allowed, old food plus moisture can lead to the perfect breeding ground for mold.

How to Prevent Mold

It’s essential to make sure your pipes are functioning correctly, your windows are sealed and weatherproofed, and that your kitchen is well insulated and ventilated. Even with all these factors are taken care of, a deep clean could still be needed for difficult spots. You can clean these areas with baking soda, vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide. Just transfer them into spray bottles and give the space a good scrub! However, if you are dealing with black mold, then a professional should be called to inspect and clean the area.
