Mold thrives in moisture, and your bathroom is often full of it: poor ventilation after a shower leaves the room humid and dark, perfect conditions to encourage growth and settling. Reduce moisture levels in your bathroom and prevent mold from growing by following these tips!
Make sure you run your bathroom fan for at least 30 minutes after you shower or take a bath in order to keep the air circulating. If you do not have a functioning exhaust fan, opening a window with help move the excess moisture out of the room. Run your air conditioner or dehumidifier on a regular basis to keep moisture levels in your home below 50%.
Fix Leaks in Pipes & Roofing
Excess water from leaks can turn into larger mold problems if left untreated. Make sure each leak is repaired as soon as it is detected in order to prevent excess water in your bathroom. If mold begins to form in one room, it can easily spread through your home and become uncontainable.
Remove Containers from the Shower
Do not keep shampoo bottles or soap in the shower. The area surrounding the bottles can be a prime location for mold. While running the shower, make sure you have a mold resistant shower curtain or door closed in order to contain the excess water. This makes it easier to clean surfaces and prevent growth. Wipe down your shower regularly with mold-preventing cleaners.
