Although there are occasions when you may need to call in cleaning professionals to deal with certain types of mold, like black mold, on the whole you should be able to deal with most molds, like mildew, yourself. All that is required is a decent cleaning solution and a bit of elbow grease. Let’s take a look at two cost effective products that homeowners in the UK can buy to help clean their kitchens and bathrooms.
Astonish Mould & Mildew Remover
As the name suggests, this product will remove all types of mold as well as mildew. The reviews on Amazon are unanimous; everyone gave the cleaner five out of five. At just under five pounds this is an efficient cleaner that will leave your tiles and surfaces looking brand new for a low financial cost. Spray the solution onto the troublesome area and leave for 15 minutes before cleaning off. This should remove all growths for quite some time.
Hg Mould Spray
This product is a bit stronger than the Astonish mold remover. If you have some really strong growths of fungus, algae or mildew then this might be the best solution. Again this product gets some really great reviews on Amazon. Please be sure to use protective gloves when using this product and be aware that there is a lot of bleach in the product. This cleaner is a bit more expensive at around seven pounds sterling and this reflects the stronger cleaning power.
Most mildew removal products are similar but always read the label before you start cleaning. Once you’ve used one of the products above don’t forget to thoroughly dry all areas and can some good ventilation into the rooms that you’ve cleaned. Mold loves damp and warm places so keeping your rooms dry and well ventilated is essential.
