Bath Mold and Mildew Solutions

Want to give your bathroom a new look without dishing out loads of cash? While you’re deciding on your decor and selecting a paint color, why not think about preventing one of the most common bathroom problems — mold & mildew growth. Cleaning can remove mold & mildew, but the trick to controlling it is to prevent it before it starts. Follow these steps from the mold & mildew prevention experts at Zinsser:
  1. Keep airflow constant.
  2. The combination of hot showers in small spaces creates an ideal environment for the growth of mold & mildew.
  3. Consider installing an exhaust fan or ceiling fan to improve ventilation in your bathroom. They can increase airflow and significantly slow the growth of mold & mildew.
What if installing a fan isn’t in your budget?
  1. Leaving your bathroom window slightly open when you shower can also help airflow.
  2. Eliminate moisture. Stagnant water produces moisture in the air and creates an ideal environment for the growth of mold & mildew.
  3. Limit excessive moisture by using a dehumidifier and by wiping down shower walls after each use.
  4. Clean infected areas.
  5. Use mold & mildew-proof paint.
By using these steps — and following a regular cleaning schedule — you will enjoy a mold & mildew-free bathroom for years to come! For more prevention tips, visit www.zinsser.com.
