Doing some product comparison is important for any purchase, but rating mildew cleaners against one another may prove more important than most purchases. That’s because your household, like any other, is particularly vulnerable to mold and mildew growth that can adversely affect the health of yourself and your family. Arming yourself with information is crucial for buying the right cleaner.
Bleach is one of the best ways to instantly kill mold, but even reduced in water it is a dangerous compound to work with. Most people don’t realize that after using bleach, it still lingers on surfaces until properly cleaned. This can make you just as sick as the mold, so don’t bother working with such a dangerous substance. Unless you have the means to properly dispose of the chemical, don’t use it.
Any product you buy from the store to prevent or destroy mildew growth will tout the ability to quickly kill growths effectively and safely. It may not be best to go with generic brands in this situation, mostly because spending a little extra ensures the job will get done and you won’t need to go back to the store to return a shoddy product. Spend the money now.
Carefully read product instructions so you don’t end up causing more damage to a bathroom surface. If you leave a solution in place too long, it can cause discoloration and permanently damage tiles and tubs. Once you have wiped the chemical away, make sure it effectively removed any mold or mildew growth. Thoroughly rinse away any residue before calling it a day.
