Everyone has heard of “Spring Cleaning” but what about the Summer? With each season comes different messes and new priorities and what you need to clean. One of the major issues during summer months is humidity, which can create the perfect breeding ground for mildew and even mold. Summer activities also usually take place outside, leading to more dirt, mud, and grime around your house. Want to make sure your house is grime, fungus and mold-free this summer? Follow these simple tips:

Eliminate Mold and Mildew

During summer months, the heat and humidity can create the perfect environment for mold and mildew growth. The moisture left inside your washing machine is no different, creating a buildup of particles that can be released into the air and even on your clothes! Not only can these particles be harmful to you and your loved ones, but it can also lead to a smelly washing machine and clothes. So how do you address this issue? It is quite simple; you can run your machine with detergent on an empty load or even use white vinegar. This will help keep your machine clean, cut down on the smell and keep mildew and mold at bay.

Clean Up Outdoor Equipment

Another breeding ground for mildew and mold are equipment for outdoor activities; this can include beach and pool equipment. After using any equipment, we recommend wiping them down thoroughly with a cloth and vinegar. This can help clean grime while reducing the likelihood mildew and mold growth.

Freshen Up Outdoor Furniture

Outdoor furniture is usually pretty dirty by the time summer rolls back around, covered in dirt, debris and sometimes even mold. To make sure your outdoor furniture is clean and mold free, we recommend using your hose to wash them down thoroughly followed by a cleaning with vinegar. This will help cut down on grime and mold growth.
