Proper Ventilation

Bathrooms are an area of your home that are highly susceptible to mold growth because of the regular high moisture levels. In order to ensure that mold growth will not occur in a bathroom, you need to make sure it has the proper ventilation. An exhaust fan needs to be properly installed and vented through the attic out through the roof. Make sure that the fan is not vented just into the attic, as this can cause mold growth in your attic. In addition, open a window when possible and open the door right after you are finished to allow as much air flow as possible. Leave the bathroom fan on for at least 30-45 minutes after you have finished showering to help clear out the remaining humid air.

Importance of Tile in Bathrooms

Make sure that your bathroom has tile. Tile is one of the most water-resistant materials used in bathrooms. If it is installed and cleaned properly, with the proper ventilation in the bathroom it can remain mold free. In order to simplify cleaning, purchase a smooth tile as they are simple to wipe down completely, since they do not have grooves that can allow moisture to collect like textured tile. In addition, the larger the tile the easier it is to clean since there are less grout lines to clean.

Seal All Grout

After the tile is installed, the next step is to seal tile and grout. By using an enhanced grout, designed to be mold resistant, will help reduce mold, however it is not enough on its own. The sealing process for tiles prevents water from settling within the grout and permitting mold growth. It will also prevent discoloration on the grout and dirt from getting between the tiles. Penetrating sealers are recommended for shower tiles, while floor tiles will need a membrane forming sealer. All products come with their own application instructions, so follow these carefully. Most will require more than one coat, with the previous layer needing to be fully dry before the next can be added.

Maintain Plumbing and Correct Leaks

It is important for everyone to have good and well-maintained plumbing systems. Maintenance steps should be done as often as possible in order to avoid water leaks and standing water, which make the home moister and thus, make it more prone to molds. Old iron pipes have a tendency of bursting and leaking, causing parts of a home to be flooded. If you believe that an iron pipe in the entire system has become rusty, then switch off the water main and work on replacing it with a newer one, preferably made of PVC. If, however, a PVC pipe in your water system has broken, then make sure to check on it, and then replace it or wrap the broken portion with plumber’s tape.

Clogged drains cause water to stand, making a place wet for quite some time and, as a result, make it a good place for molds to live and grow. Prevent this from happening by installing small grates or screens and not pouring down liquefied fat, used oil, and big food pieces. However, if water no longer seems to go down the drain in a matter of seconds, then pour biodegradable waste digester down the affected drain to dissolve the items that have stuck down there. You can buy this product from a hardware store nearest you.

Clean Routinely

Clean your bathroom thoroughly once a week with a mold eliminating cleanser. By making sure that your bathroom is clean and dry it will prevent mold growth from occurring and provide a more comfortable and healthier living environment for you and your family.
