3 Mold Prevention Tips for the Bathroom , Kalispell, Montana

No one wants to find mold lining the toilet or bathtub tile. Unfortunately due to the bathroom’s moisture-rich environment, mold and mildew can quickly grow, causing unsightly damage and serious health risks. Stay safe and protect your property with the following three tips.  

How to Combat Bathroom Mold & Mildew

1. Properly Ventilate  

Mold thrives in damp, humid environments. If you have a window in your bathroom, always open it after taking a shower and bath to prevent a bacteria-rich environment. Switching on the bathroom fan and leaving the bathroom door open for at least 30 minutes after bathing or showering will also help deter risks. If you don’t have a bathroom fan, consider installing one. Proper ventilation helps support a healthier, more hygienic interior environment overall. 

2. Squeegee After Soaking

toiletA quick, 60-second swipe of the squeegee after your daily bath or shower will significantly reduce moisture levels in the room, in turn lowering the risk of mold growth. If you don’t have a squeegee, simply toweling the walls and tub down after use will offer similar benefits. While you’re at it, make sure your toilet seat and sink remain moisture-free, too.

3. Repair Leaks

It doesn’t take long for the drip of the faucet or pipe to lead to mold. As soon as you notice a leak, enlist a plumbing professional to assess and repair it to prevent water damage and mold-related problems. Since you never know when a leak might strike, check under your sink and around the rim of your toilet base at least once a week.
