Causes of mold in the corners
Tightly leaning furniture against the walls of the room.
Purularity of things, decorative elements of the interior.
The presence of a large number of synthetic materials that do not contribute to the passage of air flows.
Rare ventilation of the room when the air stagnates.
The layout of the room is such that during ventilation, some areas are not captured by the process of circulation of air masses. Perhaps the furniture or other space barriers interfere with.
A large number of external walls that make up the room. Especially in winter, when there is a difference in temperature: cold on the street and warm in the apartment. For this reason, colonies of mold may occur in the corners of the room.
Increased humidity in the apartment. It may be due to the presence of a large number of indoor plants, an open aquarium, frequent wash and drying of linen in the apartment, and not on an open balcony. It’s bad, if there is a bathroom in the house without a window and even with poor ventilation. After “bath procedures” all humidity goes into the rooms, settles on the walls, as a result, mold forms. It is not recommended to dry many things on batteries, because in this way an increase in humidity is stimulated.
We figured out the reasons, now let’s try to formulate ways of struggle.

After bathing, you need to close the bathroom door and turn on the fan, so we get rid of excess moisture, we will not let it into the rooms of the dwelling.
Regularly ventilate the room, but not on rainy and cloudy days. Let the sun’s sun penetrate freely into your house without blocking the path to them with curtains.
Distribute heating radiators evenly around the apartment. In winter, every corner of the apartment should warm up well, especially the external walls.
Make a rearrangement of furniture if you notice that the cabinets block the road to air streams. Periodically monitor the situation that occurs behind the cabinets that fit tightly to the walls. There will be the main nursery of mold.
Do not wash at night so that raw linen does not add stagnant moisture to the house.
Plots with mold must be treated with detergents that contain chlorine. It is necessary to treat surfaces several times to destroy the colonies of mold fungi. It is necessary to work in gloves, as well as in a simple respirator to protect the respiratory tract from caustic chlorine hit.
Even before the appearance of a large amount of new -fangled household chemicals, people used ordinary copper sulfate. They made a solution out of it, treated the area affected by mold and expected a positive result. After the areas have dried, it is recommended to repeat the treatment with vitriol 2-3 more times.
The stores also sell enough chemicals designed to combat mold.
