Your bathroom should be a calm oasis where you can recover or prepare for the day in peace. During these warmer months, however, it can become the exact opposite. Things can quickly become disorganized and dirty from constant use following summer sporting events, trips to the beach/local pool, and more. With the shower and sink in use so frequently, the environment in the bathroom is often hot and humid – making it a perfect spot for mold growth. This month, we will explore the main ways you can keep your bathroom mold-free over the summer, thanks to some helpful tips.
Run Your Fan or Open Windows
A great way to cut down on condensation in your bathroom is by keeping the air circulating. The easiest ways to do this are by running the fan in your bathroom or by opening a window. Natural light from the sun will also discourage mold growth and help your prevention efforts. You could even go a step further by keeping your door open for additional air circulation.
Use a Squeegee After Showering
Consider this your sign to purchase a squeegee for your bathroom. By using one on your shower walls, shower door, and even the windows in your bathroom, you can significantly reduce the amount of moisture left behind following your showers.
Wash Towels & Rugs
The dampness on your rugs and towels is the perfect environment for mold to pop up. We recommend tossing them in the washer at least once a week to cut down on the risk of mold growth.
Run a Dehumidifier
If you do not have a fan in your bathroom, running a dehumidifier is a great alternative. Using this appliance will help you control the humidity level in your bathroom, which will help prevent mold growth in the process.
