How to Clean Mold From Around Window Seals

Mold and mildew often grow around the edges of window seals. The spores can grow there because there is moisture and condensation on the inside of the window. Most mold discoloration is green or black, but it can also be orange or red depending on the type of mold that grows in your home. Besides being ugly, mold can also be bad for your health. All molds make spores, which can cause allergies and asthma in some people.

Step 1

Fill the bottle with warm water. Add three to four squirts of liquid dish soap to the water. Use a soap that doesn’t have ammonia in it.

Step 2

Soak the moldy seals in the soap mix. Mold spores don’t spread into the air as you clean because the water wets them. This way, you don’t have to worry about them getting into the air.

Step 3

Scrub the seals with a nylon brush that is stiff enough to get the dirt off. Rinse with clear water, then scrub again. Mold and mildew leave stains, so the seals may stay dark. After the second rinse, use a sponge or cloth to get rid of any extra water.

Step 4

Mix half a cup of chlorine bleach with five cups of water, and then stir it all together. Wipe down the seals with the bleach solution, which kills any mold that is still on them. The bleach also removes most of the stains. Dry all the way with a clean towel.
