Have you ever been in a shower and you look around and see mold growing everywhere? It is not a pretty sight. It makes that shower look super dirty. You don’t want your shower to look like this. So how do you prevent this from happening? Tough Carpet Cleaning wants to give you tips on what you can do to prevent mold from growing on your shower tile and grout.
Do Bathroom Vents Help Prevent Mold?
Ventilating your bathroom can really help eliminate the mold growing in there. Did you know that running the exhaust fan isn’t just to get the fog off the mirror? It will help remove the moisture from your bathroom. With less moisture in the air, mold will be much less likely to grow. You can run the exhaust fan or keep a window open while showering. Anything to get that steam out of your bathroom will help prevent the mold from growing.
Keep Shower Doors Dry
Another great way to prevent mold from growing on your tile is to dry your shower tiles and door after you get done showering. When you are done drying yourself off then take a different towel and wipe down the shower until it is dry. It might seem like a pain drying your shower, but in the long run, it will keep you from getting mold. Incorporating this practice as part of your daily routine can have a great impact on preventing the growth of mold.
Hang Towels to Keep from Getting Moldy
Hang your towels up when you are done with them. Do you remember hearing your mother tell you that as a kid? She had a reason. This will help in so many ways. First, if you leave your wet towels crumpled up on the tile floor, your towel will start to smell. The towel won’t be able to air out. Leaving it like this will really make it have a bad damp smell. Not only will your towel start to stink but leaving moisture from the towel on the tile floor will make mold grow on the tile. This is a very simple tip that you can follow to prevent mold from growing on your tile floor.
Anti Mold Shower Spray
There is an anti-mold solution you can put on your tiles at least once a week. You can make this solution pretty easily. The homemade solution is equal parts water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. When you get out of the shower and you have toweled off your shower, then spray it down. Let it sit for about 10 minutes then wipe it down. This simple cleaning tip can help ensure you have a mold-free shower.
