Bathroom Mold is a Serious Problem

Bathroom mold

A bathroom is one of the rooms used most often in a home. It is a popular room to renovate because bathroom remodeling can increase the value of a house while creating a personalized, relaxing space. In addition to being comfortable and peaceful it is important to ensure your bathroom does not have mold (also spelled “mould”) because bathroom mold is a serious problem!

Bathroom Humidity

Bathrooms have a lot of water and humidity therefore it is common for mold to grow in them. Drains that don’t drain water properly cause water puddles. Running water creates wet surfaces that increase humidity if they don’t dry completely. Steam from hot showers and baths also increases humidity. Mold growth begins and thrives in moist environments! Therefore, it is important for homeowners to inspect their bathrooms on a regular basis to ensure they don’t have bathroom mold.

When examining your bathroom for bathroom mold check to see if there is a build up of condensation on the walls after showers or baths. If yes, it is an indication of higher than average humidity and possibly ventilation in need of an upgrade. Check the drains to ensure they are not clogged. Inspect the caulking around the tub and shower as well as the grout between the tiles for stains. If there are stains, there could be mold underneath. A musty smell in your bathroom is also an indication of bathroom mold.
