Bathroom Mold Means A Call To Restoration Professionals

A white bathroom is shown Even the cleanest bathroom might have mold.

Your bathroom is one of the most susceptible areas of your house when it comes to mold growth, there is water everywhere in the bathroom. You’ll need to practice preventive measures to ensure that you don’t develop serious mold growth in this most important, and busy, room in your home.

A bathing area has a higher moisture level that most of the other rooms in your house, of course, and surfaces can become moldy quickly if not kept dry. Once mold has established a hold on an area, it can come back even more quickly every time the humidity rises.

Here are some tips to preventing mold:

Paint your bathroom with mold resistant paint. These paints are available at your local hardware or home goods store. This is a great idea for your kitchen as well.
When doing any type of repair or renovation in the bathroom area, check with a professional to find any available products that contain mold-resistant ingredients, such as flooring and drywall, for example.

Avoid standing water in this area of the home. During floor cleaning, use less water than you might otherwise, and always dry off countertops after cleaning, paying special attention to cracks and crevasses.

As with windows in your home, ensure that all frames and weather stripping are in good repair in advance of wetter and more humid weather.
Keep an eye on the cabinets under the sinks and around the toilet for leaks from hoses and pipes leading to walls.

Clean behind and underneath them well on a regular basis, and take a good look while you are completing this task.
Ensure your bathroom area is well-ventilated, you can always use a dehumidifier if necessary.

Keeping mold out of your bathroom will contribute to a pleasant overall experience in your bathing area.

Mold growth can occur in any home, so it’s important to keep an eye out for situations that might promote mold activity. Roof/chimney leaks, wet basements, or condensation from ducts that dampen surrounding insulation are just a few examples of issues that make a house a prime target for mold growth.
