Mould build up in your bathroom is caused by both excess moisture in the air and sudden changes in temperature. The result is unsightly specks or splotches of dark mould which not only ruin the look and feel of your bathroom space but could also cause health issues in the long run. It’s no surprise that your bathroom is the most humid environment in your home so to keep it fresh, healthy and hygienic 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
Using ingredients that you’ve probably already got laying around your kitchen, create your own organic cleaning solution free of harsh chemicals that will lift and clean the mould from ceilings and tiles. Consisting of 4 parts white vinegar to 1 part of water, use your homemade cleaning solution and a clean cloth to wipe down the affected areas. Keep a bucket of fresh water close by to ensure the cloth remains clean.
Ventilation is vital in preventing mould in damp spaces. If your bathroom is positioned away from windows and sources of natural light then installing an exhaust fan will remove steam and stop it from building up on your tiles and ceiling surfaces. Pairing your exhaust fan with a heat lamp will ensure a clean and mould free space all year around.
