Mold creeps up in various places throughout your home because of excess moisture. If you live in a humid or rainy climate, then you might always struggle with mold on your wood flooring. This happens when the flooring is not laid airtight. In a humid or rainy environment, moisture is allowed to seep in and begins to produce mold. Left untreated, mold can be toxic to your air. While there are many commercial chemicals designed to get the job done, there are natural solutions that are as effective and much safer to use.
Baking Soda Spray
Baking soda is a natural all-purpose cleaner. It is used to clean a multitude of things and it can also be used to remove mold from your home. An easy way to do this is by adding baking soda to a spray bottle full of water. Allow the baking soda to dissolve until the water is a powdery white color. Now your spray mix is ready to use. You can apply it to all of the infected areas and use a sponge to scrub out the mold. Once you are done, it is important to allow the area to dry out to avoid leaving any excess moisture in the area.
Lemon Oil Spray
Lemon is commonly used as a disinfectant and a deodorizer. You can use it to clean your wood floors by adding a few drops of lemon essential oil to a spray bottle filled with water. Shake the spray bottle before using. Once you have cleaned the infected area, you can use the spray to polish your wood floors since lemon oil can also be used as a wood polish.
Cinnamon Oil and Vinegar Spray
Cinnamon is commonly used to treat and disinfect bacteria. It is commonly included in oral care products because of this reason. Vinegar is a natural all-purpose cleaner like baking soda. When combined with cinnamon, it works effectively to clean and remove bacteria. Add a few drops of the cinnamon essential oil and a few capfuls of vinegar to a spray bottle filled with water. Shake the solution and spray it onto the infected area. You can use a sponge in combination with this spray to effectively remove mold from your wood floors.
Mold is already toxic when it is inhaled so you want to use little to no chemicals when trying to remove it. As a result, use these all natural spray solutions to treat and remove the mold from your wood floors.
