Upholstery Cleaning to Intimidate Mold Formation


 
Home Improvement,Health,Crafts
Once mildew finds a foothold in your home, it can spread quickly from one surface to another. To prevent damage to your furniture, wallpaper, books and carpets, rid infected items of mildew as soon as you discover it.

Mold thrives in moist environments, and fabrics such as upholstery can absorb moisture from the air and provide an ideal place for mold and mildew to grow. It usually appears in patches, and can give off a foul, musty odor. One of the best ways to prevent future mold growth is to keep the area and items as dry as possible.

If mildew has grown deep into your upholstered furniture, you might have to discard the item or hire a specialist to clean it; however, if the spores have not penetrated into the inner layers of the material, you can solve the problem yourself.

Mold is a fungus that can grow virtually anywhere, including on your couch. Mildew can grow deep into upholstered padding It is important to remove it as soon as possible, as it can cause the fabric to deteriorate quickly (in addition to causing health problems). Follow the steps below to remove the mold. When using a upholstery cleaning solution, always test it on a hidden area first to check for any adverse reaction.

There are other natural antifungals, such as tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract, that you can use for cleaning as well.To use tea tree oil, mix two teaspoons of the oil in two cups of water, then spray the mixture onto the area where the mold was located. Let the spray dry; no need to rinse.To use grapefruit seed oil, mix 20 drops of the oil in 2 cups of water, then spray the mixture onto the area where the mold was located.

How to Do the Cleaning

• Lay down newspaper around the couch to catch any falling mold. Brush the couch with a stiff broom or brush to loosen the spores and knock them onto the newspaper. Pick up the newspaper and throw it away. • Combine 1 qt. of warm water and 1/2 tsp. of liquid hand soap in a container. Dip a sponge into the liquid and squeeze it until suds form. Apply the suds to the couch, focusing on the moldy areas. Alternatively, you can use equal parts rubbing alcohol or white vinegar and water. You can also use 1 qt. of warm water and 2 tbsp. of ammonia. Rub the upholstery with the sponge to remove any mold, rinsing and wringing the sponge as you go. If you use alcohol, rinse the upholstery with a clean, damp sponge. • Dry the couch completely in a well-ventilated area or in the sunlight. Use fans or open a window, if possible. • Spray the couch with fungicide that's safe for upholstery. Allow it to dry before using

• Always handle mildew items outside. Clean or discard anything that comes into contact with the mildew, such as cloths, sponges or brushes. Mildew can cause illness and allergic reactions. Always deal with mildew and mold promptly, even if it looks like only a small area is affected. If none of these procedures remove the musty smell from your upholstery, discard it or take it to a professionals
