IF you’re constantly finding mold in your home and aren’t sure how to get rid of it, fear not, we’ve got you covered.
We spoke to Beko, the UK’s best-selling major home appliance brand, for their best tips on how to get rid of mold instantly and ways to keep it away for good.
The experts at Beko shared their secret cleaning methods for dealing with hard mold and their smart toothbrush method is one you don’t want to miss.
When it comes to mold on your washing machine, according to the cleaning experts at Beko, while a thorough cleaning is essential, there are some other tips and tricks you can also try to keep it at bay.
The experts advised: “It is important to clean your washing machine regularly.
“While we recommend giving your machine a deep clean once every three months, the frequency of your cleaning should depend on how often your machine is used.
“By regularly cleaning your machine, you prevent the formation of mould, bacteria and odours, so you are always assured of perfectly hygienic, fresh laundry.
“Use a damp cloth and soapy water to keep your machine’s rubber seals mold free.
“Gently wipe around the rubber seals, being careful not to lift the seals off the metal.
“If any dirt remains, use a toothbrush to scrub the surface.
“Beware of self-cleaning features. Many Beko washing machines have a self-cleaning function, such as DrumClean+ that removes the bacteria that has accumulated and cleans the drum at a hot 70°C.
“Leave the door open to let air into the drum.
“If the door is closed, bacteria settle in the moisture.
“To clean the outside of your washing machine, use a damp cloth and detergent to wipe away dust and stains. Be sure to dry your machine with a clean towel.
“Make sure you clean the filter of your washing machine regularly.
“We recommend once every three months, or whenever it gets clogged.
“Clean the detergent drawer after every four to five washes.
“Detergent drawers can quickly build up with detergent residue, making it more difficult for the detergent and fabric softener to get into the drum.
“To clean, make sure the appliance is turned off, remove the tray and wash it in warm water.
“Use a toothbrush to get to the corners of the drawer and the fittings.
“You can also use a toothbrush to clean the bottom of the drawer housing.
“Also, remove wet clothes from your washing machine as soon as the cycle is over.”
When it comes to keeping your dishwasher mold free, the experts stressed the importance of descaling your machine regularly.
They explained: “It is important to clean your dishwasher regularly.
“While we recommend giving your machine a deep clean every few months, the frequency of your cleaning should depend on how often your dishwasher is used.
“Similarly, your cleaning routine will depend on the degree of soiling of your dishes and the amount of dishes you wash.
“By cleaning your machine regularly, you prevent mould, limescale, bacteria and odors and you ensure perfectly hygienic, fresh dishes.
“To clean the outside of your washing machine, gently wipe the outside and door seals with a slightly damp cloth.
“For a thorough cleaning, run an interior cleaning or Intensive program without any dishes in it.
“Leave the door open to air out the machine. When the door is closed, bacteria settle in the moisture.
“Descale your machine regularly. Descaling a dishwasher is an important step in keeping your appliance clean and functional for longer.
“Remove and clean the filters in the bottom of your dishwasher regularly. In addition, regularly remove and rinse the spray arms and remove any clogged nozzles.
“Use a suitable washing programme. To avoid bad odours, make sure you use a suitable washing program for the degree of soiling of your dishes and the amount of dishes you are washing.”
