Welcome to the Scents of Pride Cleaning Co. blog, where we're dedicated to creating a healthier living environment for you and your loved ones. In this post, we'll delve deeper into the issue of mold and unveil the natural solutions that make us your go-to cleaning experts in Amarillo, TX.

Understanding Mold Growth

Mold is a persistent problem that thrives in damp and dark spaces within our homes. Whether it's the bathroom, basement, or hidden corners, mold can affect your indoor air quality. At Scents of Pride Cleaning Co., we understand the importance of addressing this issue naturally. Our approach involves avoiding harsh chemicals and embracing a more sustainable solution.

The Power of Vinegar

In our pursuit of a cleaner, healthier home, we advocate for the use of vinegar as a natural mold fighter. With its acidic properties, vinegar is a potent disinfectant that not only cleans but also kills mold. This eco-friendly alternative ensures your home remains toxin-free while being kind to the environment.

Essential Oils – Nature's Mold Remedies

Enhance your cleaning routine with the power of essential oils. Tea tree, eucalyptus, and lavender are among the oils known for their mold-fighting properties. These natural extracts not only eliminate mold but also leave your home smelling fresh and invigorating. At Scents of Pride Cleaning Co., we've integrated these essential oils into our cleaning arsenal, providing you with a holistic and aromatic cleaning experience.

Bleach - The Mold Killer Myth

Most of us have been taught to use Bleach for most, if not all of our cleaning needs when it comes to cleaning our homes and addressing mold issues. We’re here to debunk this myth. Bleach in fact does not kill mold, it instead will drive the mold deeper into the surface and cause it to spread. Bleach shocks the mold and in its survival response, it will burrow deeper into that material. Sometimes it will lay dormant, gathering its strength and once the prime condition for it to thrive (warm and moist) returns, it comes back stronger and multiplied. Keep the bleach in the laundry, or get rid of it altogether when it comes to cleaning. 


Choosing Scents of Pride Cleaning Co. means choosing a mold-free cleaning for your home. Our expert team is committed to transforming your living space into a haven of cleanliness and well-being. Say goodbye to mold worries and hello to a naturally fresh home.

Disclaimer: we are not a mold remediation company and do not tackle mold infestations. We do however clean surface mold issues that are normally present in a home from time to time. If we notice the mold is spreading and is beyond our scope, we will not be able to address your issue and recommend you contact a mold removal/remediation company. Mold infestations are a sign of an active water leak or drainage issue which will need to be addressed as well.
