How to Prevent Mold & Mildew Growth in Your Bathroom
Mold and mildew: Every homeowner dreads the sight of these two banes of a clean bathroom. Along with forcing you to spend your valuable time scrubbing away every last speck while choking on bleach fumes, these blemishes are a sign of unhealthy conditions in the space where they grow. Indeed, mold and mildew love damp, dark areas and often spread unseen in hidden crevices. Naturally, your home’s bathrooms are particularly vulnerable. How do you keep mold and mildew at bay? As the old saying goes: “The best offense is a good defense.” In this article, we’ll explore how to prevent mold and mildew growth in your bathroom, so you can keep the space dry and healthy without having to constantly reach for the bleach.
Because mold and mildew thrive in damp, dark areas, homeowners should do their best to maintain conditions that aren’t conducive to mold and mildew growth. For example, while you’re bathing and for at least 30 minutes after, keep the space well ventilated by cracking open a window or running a ventilation fan. If your home is already prone to high humidity levels, you may also want to consider installing a small dehumidifier in or near your bathroom.
Additionally, be sure to mop up any standing water on your floor and around your bathtub or shower after bathing, as this will prevent the water from evaporating and increasing the humidity level. Finally, you should routinely clean your bathroom with a mild cleanser. A little effort now is better than a lot of work later.
Mold- & Mildew-Resistant Products
Choosing the right products for your bathroom will go a long way toward preventing unhealthy conditions from developing. If you’re planning to upgrade a bathroom in your home in the near future, be sure to choose an experienced remodeling company that can provide insight into how to maintain sanitary conditions in your bathroom. Solid-surface bathroom systems have advanced a lot in recent years, and there are now products available with built-in antimicrobial properties that can stop mold and mildew growth in its tracks. The contractor you work with should not only offer such products, but should also be able to clearly explain how they work and what type of maintenance is required.
