Mould is a fungus found in warm and damp places with excess moisture and little airflow, such as in bathrooms. Its growth can be mild and white-coloured at the start, which cannot be observed easily. Black mould can grow on walls, tiles, basins, bathtubs, showers, wood, wallpaper, drains, grout, sealant, shower curtain, or ceilings of bathrooms due to different reasons such as:
Mould growth can even lead to health problems such as the impact on breathing patterns, including infection, allergy, sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, skin rash, asthma or damage to the immune system. Health risks are higher among children, elders, or anyone with a medical history of skin issues or respiratory problems.
Mould growth can be due to leakage in the pipe or moisture build-up. You can identify mould growth in your bathroom through different methods. In case of mould growth, you may feel a constant damp smell even in a dry and clean bathroom, brown or muddy and damp or slimy walls and tiles, blistered paint, cracked tiles, peeling plaster, dull coloured walls, soft or spongy flooring, visible mould, etc.
Following homemade solutions can be used to clean mould from the bathroom:
You can also buy readily available cleaning solutions from any store, so you do not have to worry about mixing the solutions.
You should remove mould as soon as you observe it growing. Depending on the mould location and growth scale, you can remove it with a homemade cleaning solution. It is crucial to know the source of mould growth as well so that you can clean all the areas where you witness any mould growth as follows:
You should not over-saturate the area with a cleaning solution and only make a visible coating. If one side of the cloth becomes too dirty, use the other side. You can also use a scrubbing brush if you are having difficulty removing the mould.
You can use bleach or borax to beat the mould strength on the grout. While using the bleach for cleaning, use self-protective equipment and keep the window open for better ventilation. You can also use a screwdriver to scrape the mould from the grout.
You can use a flat-head screwdriver to remove the mould. Make sure there is adequate bathroom ventilation when using bleach.
It would help if you cleaned the shower curtains regularly. If the mould is not removed even after washing and scrubbing it, you must replace the curtains.
It would be best if you keep some safety precautions in mind while removing mould, such as:
You can remove small traces of mould, but you must hire a professional if it is witnessed inside the silicone seal. In that case, it is not superficial and embedded in the silicone, which cleaning cannot remove. Silicone joints require renovation; in some cases, tiles need replacement to stop mould growth and its spread.
