When it comes to being a homeowner, you should keep your home a clean and safe living space for your family at all times. You should focus your efforts on your kitchen since that is a space where many families like to spend time in. Kitchens are known for being areas with excess moisture and high humidity, which is can be a breeding ground for mold. The last thing you want is for mold to spread throughout the room you cook in during the week. Luckily, there are few simple ways to prevent mold growth in your kitchen.
Keep It Dry
When it comes to preventing mold growth in your kitchen, you want to keep it is as dry as possible. Mold can grow in wet, dark areas, so make sure you are cleaning up any spills, especially in and under your refrigerator. You do not want to leave any standing water under your refrigerator because mold can grow very easily. When cleaning dishes in your sink, make sure you are wiping any water that splashes while you are washing.
Check For Leaks
It is important that you are periodically checking for leaks around your kitchen. The last thing you want is for a leak to go unnoticed until your kitchen becomes victim to major mold growth. You want to check all of the cabinets and storage areas that contain pipes, as well as, all of your appliances. It is common for dishwashers and refrigerators to leak as they get older. If you see an appliance is leaking, it might be time for an upgrade.
Clean It Up
If you want to prevent mold growth in your kitchen, then you need to make sure your kitchen cabinets and refrigerator storage units are clean. Make sure there are no food remnants in either space because mold can form very easily. You should take some time every few weeks to clean out your cabinets and refrigerator with cleaning spray and a sponge.
