Bathroom Mold Issues

Bathrooms are one of the most common areas in the home for mold growth, because they provide plenty of the moisture and humidity required for mold to grow.

Mold in the bathroom can be eradicated with a few simple steps, however, to hopefully ensure you'll be spending less time scrubbing. Bathroom mold removal can even be achieved without using harsh chemicals, because the type of mold in bathrooms tends to be eradicated easier than the hardier kinds found in basements and crawl spaces.
One household product you can use to remove bathroom mold is vinegar. Vinegar creates an environment too acidic for mold to survive, so applying a coat of it to your shower stall or bathroom floor can work to eradicate existing mold and prevent future growth. Simply mix three parts vinegar and two parts water in a spray bottle, spray on, let dry, then wipe clean after an hour or so. An application once every 1 - 2 weeks should be sufficient to keep bathroom mold at bay. Borax and water is also recommended for occasional treatment of bathroom mold.
Using these simple steps to prevent and treat bathroom mold should keep your bathroom mold free.
