You have seen it before, and we all get it from time to time. No matter how many cleaning sessions we give our bathrooms, mold is an enemy that just won’t go away. You know what I am referring to. Just look at the corners of the tub that you have a daily love/hate relationship with. When was the last time you had your bathroom cleaned? Less than a week ago I am sure. It is crazy how quick mold disappears and reappears. Did you know that mold only needs a gestation period of 24 hours to germinate and grow? Let us start with the basics.
Mold loves damp, dimly lit and isolated areas in the bathroom, i.e., behind toilets. The bathroom is one area of the house that remains wet for a period of time. It is just enough for mold to build up. Did you know that ventilation or lack thereof has a lot to do with the growth of mold? There are other traps like rugs, grout, sponges, faucets and shower curtains that retain moisture. So what do you do about it? You may want to consider a ventilation fan for starters.

City Comptroller John Liu wants to expedite the removal of PCBs from city schools by raising money.
The potential mayoral candidate said last week he would seek to establish a program called Green Apple Bonds, which will be sold to raise $380 million to fund quicker removal of PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, the dangerous colorless and odorless chemicals found in lighting and linked to cognitive diseases and other health problems such as cancer and heart disease.

(BPT) - You might think that by the time the holidays arrive, allergy season is long gone. However, for millions of allergy sufferers, the reality is that allergens still abound.

On Sept. 10, with the school year only a few days old, a custodian at IS 204 in Long Island City walked into a counselor’s office, looked up and noticed something frightening — a clear liquid dripping from an overhead light fixture. He immediately alerted school officials. The light was removed and replaced that same day.

mid-20th century, and the school’s lightnng would be completely replaced over the next nine years. Many parents expressed concern about the risk to their children and some kept their kids out of the school. The Department of Education said the room was empty when the leak was discovered and a full review of the lights in the building is being done.

As you get older, most things around the home become less like a chore and more of an act done for pride. At least that’s how it was for me. Not but five years ago, the piling up of dirty dishes was more a challenge than a chore: just how many of my soiled plates, cups, utensils and cookware could I fit into a kitchen sink without causing a real catastrophe? Maybe its laziness, or maybe you just get more aware of what attracts rodents and pests. Either way, these days, it’s hard for me to go a day without cleaning the dishes and, at this point, the sink as well.
