End Molds Infestation In Your Bathroom

Aug 18, 2007
When home buyers finally decide to purchase a new home, one of the first things they consider remodeling tends to be the bathroom. Bathroom remodeling is not always the easiest thing to do, especially if you are so unlucky as to find a colony of mold living in what is supposed to be one of the most comforting and relaxing areas of your home.

Most people, however, would not know what to do if they found a mold colony in any part of their home, much less their beloved bathroom, even though this is one of the more likely places to find it.

The reason that the bathroom is one of the most common places to find infestations of mold is because there is a constant pattern of heat and humidity in this space. While some kinds of mold pose no threat to human beings, other kinds of mold can be hazardous to our health and can even render our homes uninhabitable.

Black mold is found in many bathrooms and basements and it is very toxic. It has been known to cause rashes, fevers, flu-like symptoms and other health complications. If you discover what you think is black mold (and it truly does appear to be black), it is best to call in a professional to get rid of it.

While it is expensive to have the mold in your home removed, you will definitely want to put this on your to-do list. It can and will move to other parts of your home if it is left unchecked. After the mold is removed successfully and you continue with your bathroom remodeling project, you will want to take steps to prevent the re-growth of mold in the future.

Install a bathroom fan while you are remodeling if you do not already have one. This is one of the best things that you can do to prevent mold from sneaking back into your quiet space.

Bathroom fans get rid of the majority of the moisture that mold needs to grow and survive. Even if you are not remodeling right now and your bathroom has no visible signs of mold, do not bet on mold not invading there in the future, if you do not have a fan in the bathroom, you should get one.

After showering or bathing, the shower curtain should be shaken off in the tub to direct as much water as possible toward the drain. Water that collects on the walls surrounding the tub should also be wiped either dry or down toward the drain with a squeegee. You want all the surfaces in your bathroom to dry out as quickly as possible.
