This is how mold develops in the bathroom – prevent it effectively now!
Mold in the bathroom is usually caused by moisture. Bathrooms are often humid environments. This is due to the showers, bathtubs and sinks in it. When moisture isn't properly wicked away and hits walls, ceilings, or other surfaces, it can encourage mold to grow. Therefore, a major factor that can encourage the growth of mold in the bathroom is the lack of ventilation. Because without adequate ventilation, humid air stays in the room and can lead to damp spots that promote the growth of mold. Regular airing is therefore not only healthy but can also protect you from it.
Finally, mold in the bathroom can also be caused by poor cleaning. For example, textiles such as bath rugs and shower curtains can absorb moisture and encourage mold growth if they are not cleaned or replaced regularly. Therefore, clean or wash all textiles that are in your bathroom on a regular basis.
