How do you clean a washing machine affected by toxic mold?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on How do you clean a washing machine affected by toxic mold?

toxic mold in NHSmells in washing machines are typically due to toxic mold in NH growing in the tub. New front load washing machines are especially prone because they are completely sealed, and when the door closes, there is no ventilation and therefore no ability for the tub to completely dry out. This is a perfect environment for mold growth. Around 2005 there was a class-action lawsuit against Maytag alleging odor, mold and mildew. The lawsuit was settled by paying money to each of the class participants but the problem was never fully resolved. The mold which was very noticeable on the rubber ring of the Maytag Neptune became abated by changing the color and composition of the rubber.

Today’s washing machines suffer from what I call “Stinky Washer Syndrome.” It’s a combination of poor ventilation, combined with modern detergents and fabric softeners which do not kill toxic mold in NH and bacteria and in fact promote the growth of these microbes. Also, we have what is in our laundry to add to the potpourri of smells.

There are harsh chemicals that can be used in the washing machine on a weekly basis to combat the problem, but they are expensive and are harmful to the environment, especially those with septic systems. The best way is to use the same method used by most major hospitals and hotels. It’s called ozone laundry. It’s the same technology a hospital will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to obtain but now scaled down for residential washing. The product is called pureWash Pro, and it’s available directly from the manufacturer here.

Ozone is 3000 times more potent than chlorine, and it allows you to do laundry in cold water with little or no detergent. Hospitals use ozone, washing critical linens in cold water because scientific studies have shown that ozone in cold water can disinfect better than 168°F water and bleach combined. That same pathogen killing power is available for your home laundry, and one of the benefits is no more stinky washer.

Because of reduced use of detergent, and because of using cold water rather than warm or hot, a typical family of four can save over $600 per year. The company offers a money back satisfaction guarantee.

When you encounter toxic mold in NH and need solutions, call Purely Green Environmental at (888)-291-3773.
