In a previous post, we mentioned a few different ways that can help you prevent mold growth in your home. However, as you know, your bathroom is especially humid, which makes it more likely to develop mold. This is why you need to take more steps to keep it safe and mold-free. To learn what these are, continue reading the post below.

How to Prevent Bathroom Mold

  1. Switch your long, hot showers, to shorter, colder ones to minimize the amount of condensation and humidity in your bathroom.
  2. Once you're done showering, pat your bathroom dry. Go over your walls, curtains, and floor with a towel to absorb the water.
  3. Don't leave your damp towel and dirty clothes in the bathroom floor, as this can help increase the moisture levels in the room.
  4. Whenever possible, ventilate the bathroom. You can open windows and doors, and even use fans to keep the area dry.
  5. Fix any sources of stagnant water in your bathroom: a leaky pipe, a clogged drain, etc. This will help greatly in your fight against moisture.
  6. Keeping the room clean is crucial in preventing bathroom mold. Clean it thoroughly (with bleach if needed) to keep the fungus in check.
  7. If you do find mold growing in your bathroom, act fast and scrub it off with bleach and water to keep it from developing further.
