mould growth, musty smells, and effective home solutions
(that don't break the bank)
If you're tired of dealing with mould growth or musty smells and you've tried just about everything (airing your house, silica gel, air-conditioners, charcoal dehumidifier, etc.) but nothing works - read on to discover the real reason why...
Mould growth is the most common problem as a result of high humidity, affecting nearly every household in Singapore.
In fact, in Singapore, the annual relative humidity is 83.9%. During monsoon periods, relative humidity can easily reach 100%, affecting most Singaporeans. The optimal relative humidity should be between 40-50%. Any higher than this would make your house more susceptible to mould growth and the dangers it brings.
Commonly thought to be just poor hygiene standards and uncleanliness,mould growthis actually present in every householdand develops because of the dampness and moisture in the air. Therefore, it is naturally occurring because of the high humidity level in Singapore.
If you like to keep your windows and doors closed, or turn on the air-conditioner when it's too hot, you are actually encouraging the growth of mould at home! You might be at increased risk. By the time you smell the mustiness, it's too late, the mould would be everywhere!
Do you experience mould growth or a musty smell in these places?
Toilet doors or windows
While there have been promising developments in technology, high humidity levels has no permanent answers. Solutions typically focus on quick fixes to remove the mould and smell - for example, charcoal dehumidifiers or gel desiccants. But do they actually solve the problem?
Here's the shocker. These gel desiccants are no better than doing nothing. The amount of moisture that they can absorb from the air is next to nothing, and insignificant at best. Worse, they can even pose more problems to your health.
What about charcoal dehumidifiers? Sorry those aren't effective either. It only helps to absorb the smell, but the mould spores will still remain in the air everywhere, only without the strong musty smell that comes with mould growth. This means the activated charcoal cannot remove the mould spores that are already growing in the air, and in your surroundings.
So what can you do to reduce the growth of mould and musty smell in your home and surroundings? Here are somepromising, science-backed treatments that don't involve spending unnecessary money on engaging a company for mould removal and treatment.
Mould Removal Spray
Eliminate mould growth with chemical solutions.
With a lot of elbow grease the next day, the mould will come off after scrubbing, leaving you with a brand-new wall or ceiling.
The results are not permanent, however, as the mould may make a comeback, and you cannot apply the chemicals on your belongings or carpentry such as your wardrobe or wooden cabinets.
The chemicals may also produce a pungent smell that may be intolerable to most as well as harmful.
However, it is effective in removing mould most of the time with little costs.
You need to paint over the areas with anti-mould paint to stop the mould growth from coming back.
This may take you a long time to paint over, and again, the chemicals the paint emanates may be harmful to you and your family. On top of that, it is also tiring to cover every wall at home.
Moreover, you can only use this on the walls and ceilings, leaving the other mouldy areas untreated.
However, this is effective in ensuring that the mould growth does not come back, unless there is an underlying root cause that you are overlooking at home.
These are just a few cases that show mould removal and anti-mould treatment as an effective combo for stopping mould growth. And every household have been using these solutions for decades.
The best part is, technology has advanced to the point where you canenjoy the benefits of mould removal and anti-mould prevention in one convenient and multi-functional device, without doing anything.
No more having to head down to the nearest shopping mall to stock up on your charcoal dehumidifiers, or spending your entire weekend painting over the walls just so they can look more presentable when guests are over.
All you have to do is plug and play, and do nothing while it works its magic in your home.
