When you have a bathroom, a fairly major issue that you will have to deal with is mold — and making sure that your bathroom does not have any.
Mold is not just something that is inconvenient in that it makes your bathroom look a little uglier — it can be a fairly major health hazard and if you don’t get rid of it, it could easily make you and your family sick.
With that being the case, let’s look at seven tips for preventing and treating mold in Bathrooms in Austin, TX in 2021.
1. Don’t Leave Showers Wet
One of the simplest things that you can do to help prevent mold from sprouting up (pun somewhat intended) in your bathroom is to make sure that you don’t leave your showers wet.
Though it might seem like a bit of a hassle to have to either wipe down your walls or otherwise use a squeegee to remove excess water, it is well worth it when you don’t find you have mold growth in your bathroom.
2. Bleach For Removing
One of the best things that you can do if you are looking to remove the mold that is on your bathroom walls or elsewhere is to use a cleaner — and there are few things that take care of mold as well as standard bleach.
There are of course bleaches that are specially made for cleaning mold in your bathroom, and if you can find that it is even better.
You have many options in terms of applying the bleach but you should opt for ones that involve keeping your skin safe and not at all exposed to it.
3. Borax To Help Prevent
Now that we know that bleach is good to get rid of mold that is there, what is it we can do to prevent mold from growing in the future?
A fairly easy solution that works quite well is to spray surfaces with Borax — and to do this on a regular basis.
Of course, there is no one solution that one hundred prevents mold but this is certainly going to help you reduce the chances of getting the mold.
4. Take Care Of Your Towels
Another source of mold that you might find growing in your bathroom is strangely… the towels that we use in the bathroom.
The problem is that towels that we use in the bathroom are often put away improperly and sometimes soaking wet, and thus not only do not dry properly… but create the right environment for breeding mold.
You can just imagine how bad it would be for wet towels to be pressed up against a wall for periods of time.
5. White Vinegar
In terms of cleaning, you pretty much can’t get much more natural (that is to say without the use of more caustic chemicals) than vinegar.
The good thing about using white vinegar for cleaning the mold off of your bathroom surfaces is that it’s incredibly easy to find — you don’t have to go to a specialty store to find something that is available in every major grocery store and supermarket.
6. Take Care With Even Natural Cleaners
When you are cleaning with cleaners that are considered natural, you might think that you don’t necessarily have to take as many precautions in terms of your own protection.
This is not the case, however — you can get quite hurt if you are not careful with even the most natural of cleaners. It is important that you are careful with all cleaners.
7. Good Ventilation Is A Must
Lastly, a good ventilation system is a good way to keep mold out of your bathroom.
Though of course, it may cost you more upfront, it will cost you less in the long run from not having to deal with mold.
