What Causes Mould Growth in Bathrooms

Have the bathrooms in your home seen better days? Are you starting to find little pockets and specks of mold scattered throughout? While you need to address these mould concerns ASAP, it’s also important to know what causes mold growth in bathrooms so you can prevent it from happening in the future.

Lack of Ventilation

The next time you get out of the shower, take a look around. What do you see? More than likely, there will be a room filled with steam and condensation on the walls. The regular presence of this moisture after each shower can easily cause mold and mildew to begin growing in no time at all. To offset your undoubtedly long and hot showers, turn on the exhaust fan during and after showers, keep the door open a crack, and open up a window to ventilate this moisture outward.

Multiple Wet Spots

Thanks to all of the plumbing fixtures in bathrooms, these rooms will have the most amount of wet spots out of any other room in the house. Eliminate any possible wet areas by inspecting plumbing and fixtures regularly for leaks, as many can go unnoticed. You should also make sure to clean each of your fixtures on a bi-weekly basis, have an absorbent floor mat, and avoid leaving wet towels on the floor.

Defeated Grout

The tile in your bathroom (especially in the shower) is constantly exposed to moisture as well as direct water contact. Over time, the grout between tiles will begin to deteriorate and wear away. It’s important that this grout be replenished every six months or so, otherwise, you could end up with cracks and chips in your tiles. Rejuvenated grout will help prevent mold, protect your tile, and give your bathroom a clean and whole look.

Mold growth in any room of your home is not welcomed — but it’s almost always seen in the bathroom. When the plumbing in your home is causing leaks (which will cause mold), contact Hills Emergency Plumbing Pros to repair those leaks.
