When I started working at my uncle's restaurant, I knew that there were a few things I needed to adjust. First and foremost, I decided to start working on cleaning things up. It had been quite awhile since the place had been cleaned thoroughly, so I focused on sanitation and garbage removal. I hired a trash removal company to come in and remove old equipment, and then we worked on taking special care to deep clean all of the different appliances. It was amazing to see how big of a difference we were able to make. This blog is all about sanitizing your restaurant.
One thing you don't want in your home is mildew, a type of fungus that can stink and cause negative health effects. You can do a good job at keeping mildew at bay if you implement the following prevention measures.
Document Problem Areas in Your Home
If you want to implement effective prevention tactics for residential mildew, then you first need to document problem areas in your home. There might be areas where this fungus is accustomed to growing.
It could be in the bathroom because of the added humidity or maybe in the basement because the foundation lets in water. You just need to study your home long enough to see where mildew often grows. Then you can be more specific in your prevention tactics going forward. Just give yourself a couple of months to study mildew growth in an objective manner.
Don't Let Wet Areas Remain
If there is ever liquid that spills in your home, whether it's in the kitchen or bathroom, you want to dry it up as quickly as possible. Otherwise, mildew could grow and then create stressful issues that could have been easily prevented.
Get your entire family involved in drying up wet areas too. Then you can drastically improve your odds of keeping mildew from ever growing. You just need to use an effective tool to dry up areas that get wet. A powerful shop vacuum, for instance, might be something you invest in to dry up wet areas thoroughly and quickly.
Make Sure Water Moves Away From the Property's Exterior Effectively
The more water that's able to collect against your home, the greater odds there are of mildew forming somewhere in your home. It's thus important to make sure water moves away from your property on a consistent basis, especially when it rains.
You can start with your gutters. Make sure they don't have a blockage that would cause water to collect against the roof and foundation. Then you can check the slope of the ground that surrounds your home's exterior. If it's not sloped high enough, you need to adjust this part of the landscaping before water causes mildew to grow inside your property.
You don't want to have chronic mildew problems in your home because it can have negative effects on your family's health. Fortunately, preventing mildew isn't that difficult if you just assess your particular property and try out tactics that are tailored to it perfectly.
