How to Prevent Mold and Mildew on Bathroom Tiles

Excess moisture and dampness can quickly turn your bathroom into a breeding ground for mold and mildew. This harmful fungus can lead to harmful infections and diseases. But we can help prevent that.

In this blog, our experts have discussed some effective ways to stop mold from growing on your bathroom tiles that will protect your family from the harmful effects of mold and keep your bathrooms looking spotless.

Ways to Prevent Mold and Mildew on Bathroom Tiles

⇒ Keep It Ventilated

The primary reason for mold growth is the excess moisture in your bathroom. To prevent this, invest in a high-quality exhaust fan, turn it on every time you shower, and let it run for 25-30 minutes after you finish showering.

It will remove the humidity from your bathroom and dry the walls and ceiling properly. Also, open up the windows to improve the circulation and to let the bathroom air out.

⇒ Fix Leaks ASAP

Leaks and busted pipes may be a frequent occurrence in your home, but it increases the chances of mold growth by a large margin. So, inspect your bathroom thoroughly for any signs of leaks.

If you detect a leak, turn off the water supply and fix the source of the leak as soon as possible, or call a professional if the damage is too large. Don’t ignore minor drips and fix them quickly to prevent mold growth.

⇒ Remove Excess Water With a Squeegee

After showering, don’t let moisture sit on the tub’s exterior or bathroom walls. Take a few minutes to wipe away the water droplets and condensation from the tub and tiles. If there are any puddles of water, address them with a microfiber towel to cut back on moisture.

⇒ Seal the Grout Lines

Grout is extremely porous and retains moisture for a long time, and not sealing the grout lines can be a mistake that can ruin your tile flooring, as unsealed grout lines are excellent places for mold and mildew to grow.

So get your bathroom’s grout lines sealed and re-sealed as soon as possible to prevent mold and mildew growth on bathroom tiles. Use a proper sealant for the process to ensure the protection lasts longer.

⇒ Spray Hydrogen Peroxide and White Vinegar

You can also use household products to prevent mold growth in your bathroom. Just pour 3% hydrogen peroxide into a spray bottle and apply to the areas you suspect of mold growth.

Let it sit for 8-10 minutes, then scrub the area with a soft brush. Wipe the surface dry with a clean cloth. You can repeat the process using a white vinegar and water solution to get the same results.
