The Effects Of Mold In Your Laundry Hampers, And Bathroom Vents

Laundry Hampers
I don’t know about you, but I enjoy a good bath or shower a lot and one of the worst things that you can notice while you’re in the bathroom is mold starting to grow on the ceiling or on the wall. It appears as a splotchy growth that’s slowly creeping its way from one end of the room to the other and if you leave it untreated, it will cover your entire bathroom. You can scrub it off the walls with mold and mildew cleaner all you want to, but in the end if the infection has spread so far, you will probably have to replace the sheetrock in the bathroom. Sheetrock (or drywall) is a porous surface and mold cannot be effectively removed from it by surface cleaning. The mold will infect the entire depth of the board and most of the time there is not anything that you can do except throw it...

Have you ever had the chance to watch a lightning storm? These storms can really make the sky light up especially at night. But with this lightning can come the fires that lightning bolts can cause if it hits something. Lightning can cause the item it hits to burst into flames that can get out of hand in a matter of seconds. If it hits a batch of trees and it is not yet raining, this fire will be harder to put out as it will have all kinds of dry food. As long as this fire has the trees and air, it can live a long time or until the fire department or heavy rain gets it put out. In some cases, it can be deadly when lightning strikes people or animals. If a lightning bolt happens to hit you, and it could, it could do two different things. For one it could enter your body by the metal you ...
