Mold can be a common occurrence after an instance of water damage. Mold requires water, food, an oxygen to grow, all three are prevalent after a water loss. However, one of the most common places mold grows in a home is in the bathroom. This can happen with only regular use and no extraordinary circumstances occurring. Here are some helpful tips to prevent mold growth in your bathroom.

Frequent Cleaning

The best method to prevent mold growth is keeping the bathroom clean. You should aim to thoroughly clean every part of the room once a week, including:

  • Toilet
  • Bathtub
  • Sink
  • Floor
  • Vents
  • Shower

Tub and tile cleaners are likely to have enzymatic properties. Enzymatic cleaners are designed to eat through organic material, such as mold.

Timely Repairs

Bathrooms are vulnerable to frequent leaks. If one pipe leaks or one supply line breaks, resulting water damage can lead to mold if the problem is not resolved quickly.

Proper Air Flow

Maintaining airflow to an area by keeping vents open can prevent mold spores from settling and multiplying on surfaces. Ventilation also helps prevent stagnation and helps control the humidity in the room, two factors that often lead to mold contamination.
