Unfortunately for your bathroom, it is one of the most popular places in the home to find mold. While investing in mold remediation is occasionally a necessity, if you catch bathroom mold problems early on, you can clean them up before they become even bigger problems. Here are three simple ways that you can act now to prevent bathroom mold.
Always Use Your Exhaust Fan
Be honest—do you turn on the exhaust fan every time are you using the bathroom to take a shower or a bath and leave it on for at least half an hour afterward? If you’re like many people who haven’t noticed a problem with bathroom mold before, you might think you’re just fine running it during your shower and turning it off right after. However, exhaust fans work by pulling moisture out of the air whenever excess moisture is present, so they are just as important in the minutes after your shower as beforehand. If you don’t already have an exhaust fan, you should install one.
Keep It Clean
While mold often occurs as a result of extra moisture and water in the room or air, it can also grow from a lack of cleaning. You should always clean your bathroom on a regular basis using cleaners with bleach in them. Bleach is very effective at killing mold spores and stopping mold growth from occurring. If you are concerned about using bleach in your bathroom regularly, you can always clean with other mold-prevention cleaners instead!
Add an Air Filter
Air filtration methods are great at for removing mold and mildew odors from the air, as well as for filtering out allergens and indoor pollutants. Purchase a HEPA filter or other high-quality air filter, and you won’t need to worry about mold spores in your bathroom anymore!
