House mold symptoms

Hello everyone,

# You smell stale musty odors, in the bathroom, laundry, basement, attic, walls.
# You have headaches that occur on a weekly basis.
# Musty towels or clothing that was just washed.
# Stale air conditioning or furnace air.
# Mold colonies that appear as if from out of no where even after cleaning it.
# Speckles or splotches on the home water filter or water softener tanks.
# White/gray crystaline substances on basement walls.
# Damp cardboard in the attic, garage, or basement.
# You have strange health problems that the doctors can't seem to identify a cause.

Pure white vinegar is also quite effective. Well, I admit that the bleach is doing a better job, but vinegar does not have as strong and suffocant smell as bleach.

P.S.: By better job, I mean that the bleach removes the mold faster.

I love cleaning and gardening!

but vinegar is the better choice, not only because of the smell but the affection to the environment as well. If someone at home has respiratory problems, allergies and/or other health issues it is better to use vinegar than bleach..

I have found vinegar the most effective products for cleaning. However, It is helpful product for home accessories too. Though, I have restore antique chandelier and for it's cleaning, I have used the vinegar, which really helped me with it's cleaning.
