Mold is essentially a type of fungus that thrives in a damp environment. Molds are typically green, white or black and look thick and fuzzy. While outdoors, Mold is essential for decomposing organisms and soil regeneration, indoors it can be quite harmful to health.
Therefore, it is important to take all possible measures to avoid the growth of mold at home.
Since Molds typically prefer a moist environment for their growth, bathrooms are one of the most likely places for Mold to grow.
Our professionals at Service Master Elite Cleaning Service have a few tips to help keep your bathroom mold free:
Good ventilation is key to avoiding the growth of mold and mildew. Air out your bathroom after taking a shower or a bath. Install exhaust fans to ventilate your bathrooms easily.
Clean Shower Curtains
Our shower curtains get wet after every bath or shower. It is important to spread them out once we are done with a bath to allow them to dry instead of leaving them crunched up in one place. Also important is to regularly wash our shower curtains. The curtain and plastic liners over time absorb moisture and can develop mold. The same applies to any rugs or floor mats that you might have in your restrooms.
Clean Your Bathroom
The most obvious tip would be to clean your bathrooms on a regular basis. Wipe down all surfaces including glass panes, mirrors, sinks, tubs, and counters. Using a squeegee wipe down your shower walls to clean them.
Seal Your Grout
Improperly sealed grout can lead to moisture gathering between tiles or the tub and wall. Therefore it is important to seal your grout. Keep checking for any signs of crack and apply grout if need be.
Check For Leaks
Leaking toilets or faucets can cause the increase of moisture in your bathroom. It is important for you to keep an eye out for any leaks and fix them as soon as possible.
