Las Vegas, NV – Prevent Bathroom Mold: Advice from Mold Remediation Company

Bathroom

Worried about bathroom mold? Follow our advice to prevent it in the first place.

If you think mold presence in the bathroom is not something to worry about, think again. By damaging the walls, ceilings, and floors, mold can seriously distort the appearance of your bathroom.

Bathroom surfaces are regularly exposed to moisture, making the space highly susceptible to mold growth. Whether that moisture translates into mold is in your hands. If you choose to leave the standing water as is, it won’t be long before mold starts invading your bathroom space. On the other hand, constantly wiping surfaces to keep them dry and controlling the humidity in the space can help prevent bathroom mold or slow down its spread if it’s already there.

Here are some tips to prevent bathroom mold:

Keep Your Bathroom Clean

Since dust is a food source for mold that enables it to spread, you should regularly clean all surfaces in your bathroom, such as the bathtub, toilet, and sink, to prevent mold growth. To wipe the surfaces, use a lightly damp microfiber cloth.Ensure Ventilation

On a weekly basis, spray the surfaces with an all-purpose bathroom cleaner. Also, don’t forget to clean the windows and mirrors in your bathroom. Hold a microfiber cloth, spray the glass cleaner on it, and wipe  the mirror and windows in an ‘S’ pattern with it.

Once you’ve cleaned the surfaces, use paper towels to wipe the bathtub, the sink basin, and other surfaces until they’re dry.

In addition, the bathroom rugs and shower curtain liners get wet every time you take a shower, yet, they’re often neglected when cleaning the bathroom. You can clean both the plastic liner and the bathroom rug in the washing machine. Be sure to dry them after washing.

Eliminate the Accumulation of moisture

Keep inspecting the seals, faucets, and pipes attached to the sinks and toilets for potential leaks. As soon as you track a leak, call a plumbing professional to get it fixed. Avoid keeping bath toys, loofahs, or bathing products, like shampoo, body wash, conditioner, or washcloths, in the shower or bathtub. Wipe these items dry and store them in a dry place. This way, mold won’t get a place to hide in your bathroom.

After each shower, sweep the walls using a squeegee and dry them.

Ensure Ventilation

During and after the shower, keep the exhaust fan on so that it circulates air to eliminate steam and dry the bathroom when you’re done showering. Also, keep the bathroom windows open to allow fresh air to enter the bathroom.

If you live in a hot, humid climate, the best technique to provide ventilation is to use a dehumidifier. By reducing the amount of moisture in the air, you will lower the chances of mold growth.

Another uncommon way to allow for proper ventilation is to install an AC unit in your bathroom so that it cools down the air.

While following the above-explained tips should reduce the chances of bathroom mold, if you do suspect mold presence, get the space inspected by a mold restoration professional, such as STOP. It serves in North Las Vegas, Whitney Ranch, Sky Canyon, Centennial Hills, and many other areas.
