Why Is Mold Growing In My Bathroom?

You can't seem to clean it up fast enough and the toxic mold keeps growing back and you're wondering, when is it ever going to stop. Well I've got some good and some bad news for you. Let me give you the bad news first.

The bad news is, if mold is growing behind something that you don't have access to, you might as well make friends with it, because it's going to be there, until you can access the area where the mold is growing from.

I have seen mold underneath flooring, behind tile, behind bathtub and showers enclosures, underneath toilets, bathroom cabinets, sinks, mirrors, drywall, plaster, light fixtures, bathtubs, showers and even underneath paint. It doesn't seem like there's any place in your bathroom that toxic mold doesn't enjoy growing on.

Unless you're prepared to start remodeling your bathroom, the best suggestion that I can give you, would be to keep your bathroom as clean as possible and as dry as possible. Mold likes moisture and dark areas and you might not be able to do anything about the dark areas in your bathroom, but you can keep these areas as dry as possible.

You can buy cleansers that deal specifically with mold and mildew from your local grocery store, hardware store or home improvement center. I can't recommend, one of these products, but regular household bleach seems to work pretty good.

If you have mold growing in your bathroom, remember that you're not the only person with this problem and you could be fighting it for a long time. Now it's time for the good news, If you have mold, it's getting moisture from somewhere and I would suggest contacting a bathroom remodeling contractor, when you finally get tired of dealing with the problem.
