Today I am here to talk to you about mold.
Yep… mold. Living up where we do, and having an older house with no bathroom fans and old windows that aren’t the best, I have to deal with a lot of mold in the windows and in the bathrooms. It’s… really pretty gross.
Endurance BioBarrier was kind enough to offer me a bottle of both their Cleaner Prep and Anti-Mold protection product in order to help me combat this problem!
As such, we were sent a bottle of both Endurance BioBarrier products in order to facilitate this review, but no other compensation was gained in writing this post.
While hot water and vinegar would remove it, but didn’t really stop it from growing back what felt all too quickly.
What’s even worse is it feels like no matter what, the ceiling in the shower gets moldy pretty darn fast. >.> The cobwebs are before I cleaned up in there again, but that picture is about a month and a half after I cleaned last I think.
I will admit it also took me a lot less scrubbing with the Endurance BioBarrier cleaner than it has been with my usual vinegar and hot water method. I let the product sit on for a couple of minutes, and then did my best to clean up. Granted, this is pretty far above my head and I’m pretty short. I didn’t do overly too badly.
In the bathroom, BioBarrier’s Anti-mold protector should hold up for six months.
For the past few weeks it’s held up very well in our downstairs bathroom. Which is the one that seven out of the eight of us use for bathing and showering. The upstairs bathroom only have a shower stall, which none of the kids like using. >.>
One of the bad things about the downstairs bathroom though are these pipes, particularly this small one. I am not sure what it is, but it’s stained and gets nasty pretty darn quickly. The before and after are pretty much telling of what we have to deal with here. It’s gross. But at least I am comfortable knowing that not only is the bathroom protected from mold, the products are safe for use around people (there are eight of us!), pets (eight cats and three mice!) and plants (okay, I only have two right now. None of which are in the bathroom.)
Bleech! *shudder* Of course I have other places I’ve treated as well, but they required cleaning tight spaces with dollar store tooth brushes to get the problem situated. Also they took really terrible pictures. Or I did, because some pictures just aren’t good enough to show on here.
How do you combat mold in your space? Do you deal with it as much as I have to?
