How Common is Shower Mold?


Bathroom Renovations

Shower mold is common and is inevitable in showers that don’t get cleaned frequently. Showers are constantly encountering debris that provide mold with the necessary conditions for growth. All of its heat and moisture makes the shower the perfect place for mold to start growing in your home.

Important Equipment

You need to make sure that your bathroom either has a ventilation or exhaust fan to allow air to circulate in the room. This removes excess moisture and allows the bathroom to dry quickly. Air circulation is something that needs to happen if you are going to prevent mold from beginning to grow in your shower.

Mold Spreads Quickly

Small patches of mold that have been ignored for long periods of time will spread and turn into a bigger problem for home owners. It will contaminate your walls, floors and move behind and underneath them as well. When mold is hidden it can remain undetected for long periods of time, allowing it to continue to grow unnoticed.

Calling Professionals

Professional mold and water damage companies such as Water Damage Zone are valuable assets in the prevention of mold growth in your bathroom. By calling such companies you can have the proper technology installed to allow proper air circulation so mold doesn’t grow. They will inspect your home and determine the proper course of action.

Preventing Bathroom Mold

Use the ventilation fan in your bathroom whenever someone has a shower or bath and leave it on for 30 minutes afterwards. If you don’t have an exhaust fan you should look into getting one installed to properly circulate the air in your bathroom. Use a shower curtain that is resistant to mold that can be washed frequently. Don’t keep lots of products in your shower, they provide hiding places for mold to grow. Wash rugs in your bathroom routinely. By following these precautions, you can avoid the growth of mold in your bathroom.
