Best and Easiest Ways to Prevent Mold in the Bathroom

Published by Blue Corona

Mold and mildew can wreak havoc on your respiratory system, causing a slew of health issues in the process. Unfortunately, the favorite place for these fungi happens to be one of the most essential rooms in your home, the bathroom. Proper bathroom mold prevention can keep you healthy for years, and only takes a little bit of work to achieve.

How to Prevent Mold in the Bathroom?

  • Dehumidifier – A dehumidifier can kill mold and mildew growth before it even begins by removing moisture from the room.

  • Grout and Insulation – Grout can waterproof and seal off the areas of your bathroom that frequently accumulate water. Insulating the walls of the bathroom will also control the temperature, which in turn prevents mold and mildew from accumulating.

  • Air Out the Room – If you enjoy hot showers or baths, then be sure to keep your bathroom fan running for 30 minutes after you bathe. It is also helpful to keep windows and doors open to dry out the room quickly and prevent mold from growing.

  • Use a Shower Spray – A shower squeegee, bathroom product, or even white vinegar can be helpful to clean the shower after each use.

  • Frequently Launder Towels – Towels and bath mats can be perfect breeding grounds for mold and mildew, especially if they are not cleaned. It is important to not only wash and dry your towels but also shower curtains and any other product within the area of the shower.

If you see a leaking pipe that you are worried will lead to black mold, then contact Wilbur’s plumbing team to get your pipe repaired.
