Spring into Cleaning! Windowsill Growth

4/22/2018 (Permalink)

This month, we’ve been talking about spring cleaning. Most of us are already looking forward to the warmer weather and working in our yards but the shift in season also brings something that most of us don’t want: windowsill growth. But not to panic, it’s not always a cause for concern.

  • Tip #1: What appears to be windowsill mold isn’t always mold, so don’t worry too quickly most of the time you can just wipe it clean.
  • Tip #2: To remove it you can use one-part bleach with three parts warm water and remove with a scrub brush.
  • Tip #3: Black mold on windowsills is not toxigenic but it is allergenic, meaning the worst that will happen is that your allergies will flare up.

If you have any questions about mold, don’t hesitate to call us. We have professionals that can determine if it is mold on sight. That’s it for today, we hope you will join us for next week’s Friday lunchtime minute, where you get tips from the PROS. And remember, when the unexpected happens call SERVPRO of Weakley, Gibson & Carroll Counties.
