Mould Removal in the End of Tenancy

Mould is one of the most serious domestic problems in London. The high humidity in the city troubles a lot of households, as they get infected with mould because of it. This issue can cost you a lot if you're living on rent, as you might lose your security deposit in the end of your lease period.

Here are a few techniques from tenancy cleaners London on how to remove mould when the time to move out comes:
  • The easiest way to fight this irritant is with bleach. You only have to spray the affected areas with the detergent, and the spores will disappear in a few seconds. Some spots might need to be treated twice, though. Be careful when using bleach, because it is highly toxic. I recommend that you wear a mask on your mouth and gloves on your face when doing it. Try not to breathe in the fumes from the cleaner and the fungus.
  • Another easy way to remove mould is with a home-made solution of one cup hot white vinegar, one tablespoon salt and 10 drops lavender, eucalyptus or sandalwood essential oil. If you want to make the mould remover stronger, you can add one tablespoon bread soda, too. Spray the affected area and let the spores disappear. This solution works just like bleach does.
  • Some specialists say that you can clean mould-affected areas with a mixture of one cup warm water and quarter cup baking soda. You have to mix the products and rub the solution on the mouldy place. When you remove all spores, you have to wipe with a dampen with vinegar cloth. End of tenancy cleaning London experts don't recommend this method, as it helps the spores spread. You will remove them when rubbing, but it will be only temporarily.

It doesn't matter which of these mould removal techniques you will choose, they will all do a great job in the end of your tenancy. Just make sure you wear a mask and gloves when dealing with this chore.
