You need to keep the bathroom fresh, healthy and mould-free. We’ve put together some handy tips for removing mould in your bathroom and preventing it from occurring in the first place.
Organic Cleaning Solution
You can easily create your own organic cleaning solution free of harsh chemicals to clean the mould from ceilings and tiles. Consisting of 4 parts white vinegar to 1 part of water, use a clean cloth to wipe down the affected areas. Keep a bucket of fresh water close by to keep the cloth clean. This simple cleaning solution is cheap and effective.
Ventilation helps to prevent mould. If your bathroom is positioned away from windows and sources of natural light, you can install an exhaust fan to remove steam which promotes mould growth. A heat lamp will also help ensure a clean and mould free space all year around.
