Mold and mildews are common at home especially in the event that you live in a place that is prone to flooding. They are caused as a result of  wetness and moderate temperatures. They can be found on clothes, walls or even any other surface prone to moist or any kind of wetness.  Since they are bacterial, the above named conditions are likely to favor them and make them even more progressive. There are simple ways of getting rid of mold:

Check on the room temperatures

Humidity of the room

Clean rooms regularly

Check on the clothes that are not worn for long

Check on the room temperatures

Basically it is known for most bacteria to grow under favorable temperatures like warmth. This clearly supports their productivity and even makes them multiply rapidly. It is always important for one to check the room temperatures and keep it steady to avoid these kinds of growth inside the house

Humidity of the room

It is necessary for one to check on how humid it is within the house. The higher the humidity the higher the chances of dampness in the house. It is another condition that favors the growth of mold. It is important for individuals to always ensure that there is proper circulation of air in the room, so that it is impossible for mold to develop.

Clean rooms regularly

Other practices that are involved in the cleaning of the house are opening of windows and doors to enhance freshening of the house. When one does this it makes it easier for the room to dry, which leads to condensing or even loss of humidity in the room and further regulates the temperature. All these conditions will lead to reduction of mold formation since the environment will not be conducive for its multiplication.

Check on the clothes that are not worn for long

There are clothes that individuals barely put on in a very long time; hence they are left in the wardrobes for long. If not checked well most likely they can be found harboring things like insects or even start growing mold and mildew. It is advisable for you to always check on the clothes even if it means you are not going to put on the clothes but just to avoid damage that could be caused by mold. If you leave the closets and the wardrobe without being opened from time to time, this can also create a conducive environment for mold and mildew to form.

In the event that you realize that your clothes have already grown mold, you can take measures to prevent this from spreading, by getting rid of the mold. You can use bleach to do this, or take a brush and brush it off. What you need to realize is that things like mold basically develop because we create an environment that is conducive for them. If you can take precautionary steps to prevent this from happening, you will not have to worry about a thing anymore.
