Bathrooms... Dark, damp and isolated spaces.

1/7/2021 (Permalink)

While working on a tile job we discovered a customer’s bathroom had been invaded by mold! Bathroom mold occurs primarily because mold loves damp, dark, wet and isolated spaces. Bathrooms are a breeding ground for mold because of the unlimited amount of water supplied in a small space. Sinks, toilets, bathtubs, showers and let’s not forget your littles bath time routines that involves shoveling the water from the bathtub to your bathroom floors.

According to houselogic.com a great way to help prevent a moldy bathroom mess would be:

  • Use your bathroom ventilation fan when you shower or bathe, and leave it on for 30 minutes following the end of your bath; if you don’t have an exhaust fan, install one.
  • Keep household humidity levels below 50%; an air conditioner or dehumidifier can help.
  • Use a mildew-resistant shower curtain, and wash or replace it frequently.
  • Don’t keep bottles of shampoo or shower gel, toys, or loofahs in the shower, as they provide places for mold to grow and hide.
  • Wash your bathroom rugs frequently.
