The following segment aired on O2 Media’s The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television. Joining the show was Alexis. Alexis talks to The Balancing Act Lifetime viewers about mildew.
O2 Media’s The Balancing Act Host Danielle Knox: You know the blackish, pinkish, orange-like stuff on the lining of your tub? It’s that colorful something that you have to drench in cleaning product and scrub away with fine bristles as you bend your back out of shape. What are we talking about here, Alexis?
Alexis: I have a few facts about mildew for you. It can be any color – black, orange, green, or white. It can be transported by insects, animals, or by air. So, we’re not bad house-cleaners.
O2 Media’s The Balancing Act: That’s the thing I always find interesting is the fact that kitchens and bathrooms are breeding grounds for mildew, and it has a lot to do with the fact that it’s so humid in there. So, again, it’s not our fault.
O2 Media’s The Balancing Act: I know a lot of parents who are viewers of “The Balancing Act” out there probably feel the same way – you really don’t want your family exposed to any of that, because mildew organisms can cause respiratory problems and allergies. So, for a lot of families who have children who are already allergy sufferers, there’s one less thing that you want to worry about.
Alexis: Exactly. It’s just not good for them to have to deal with all that. So, there are ways to get rid of our mildew problems.
O2 Media’s The Balancing Act: What can “The Balancing Act” viewers do?
Alexis: There is this new product and it’s called Mildew-Free Sealant. For all those watching the show, all you do is literally replace the grout that you already have around your kitchen sink and around the bathtubs, which is where that mildew collects, and you put this in instead. It actually is very easy. You have to remove the old grouting and make sure the surface is dry and then put this on. Then you have to leave it for 24 -48 hours before you get it wet again.
O2 Media’s The Balancing Act: The great thing “The Balancing Act” viewers will like about this is the fact that it cleans up very easily. It cleans up with soap and water. That’s it.
Alexis: Also, it lasts for seven years.
O2 Media’s The Balancing Act: That’s a great thing. I know for a lot of our “Balancing Act” viewers out there, they will really want to be in a situation where they’re doing the best things they can for their family.
