A common misconception about green mold is that it’s related to the antibiotic penicillin and therefore, harmless to your health. The truth is that, while green mold does have a connection to Penicillium chrysogenum, it shouldn’t be widely accepted as friendly. If you come across green mold in or around your home, you should take measures to get rid of it before it gets the chance to cause sinus infections and lung inflammation. Here’s a guide for getting rid of green mold in your Towson home.
Removing Green Mold
To get rid of mold you have to take away the sources that help it thrive. The reason that mold is so prevalent in so many Towson homes is that mold happens to enjoy the same range of temperatures that people do.
In addition to the temperature, homes that have areas that are perpetually dark, and damp will see a lot of mold growth. Staying on top of the conditions in these areas of your home will help keep mold growth at bay. Keep an eye out for all organic materials around your home like wood, synthetic paints and glues, and the dirt. Mold uses these elements as food sources.
Take care to keep your home as dry and well lit as possible. Keep your curtains and windows open as much as possible to allow natural sunlight and fresh air to circulate throughout your home. Use anti-fungal detergents for your carpets and other upholstered furniture. A dehumidifier is also a great tool to help rid of the air in your home of excess moisture.
Cleaning Green Mold
Now that you’ve gotten rid of the green mold in your Towson home, you should also take measures to clear your body of the associated toxins. Eat whole foods and avoid things like carbohydrates, cheese, and gluten while you’re detoxifying your body. Make time for more exercise and eat some good probiotics. Drink plenty of chlorine and fluoride-free water and use natural soaps in the shower. Get plenty of sleep each night add some supplements to your daily routine.
