We’ve talked about mold in this blog before, but there’s plenty more that can be said on the topic. For this blog post, we’d like to focus on one of the most common locations where mold can grow in the average home – your bathroom.

Bathrooms are no stranger to moisture. The overwhelming majority of activities that happen in a bathroom involve running water. This makes your bathroom a very moist place, which is one of the most important factors in mold growth. Moisture can linger in a bathroom virtually everywhere. It can stay in the air for hours, there could be leaky pipes connected to your sink, shower, or toilet, or you could have damp objects in your bathroom like wet towels and clothes, or even the wallpaper or shower curtain. An important method to controlling the moisture level in your bathroom is to increase ventilation. Make sure your exhaust fan is working properly, and open windows whenever possible.
