    Bathroom Cleaning Tips to Prevent Mold and Mildew

    Bathroom Cleaning Tips

    When it comes to mold and mildew, prevention is the best cure. Prevention is far easier than getting rid of mold and mildew. These helpful tips will help you prevent mold and mildew from taking over your bathroom.

    Use Bathroom Fans Frequently

    Use fans while showering and allow them to continue running for at least 30 minutes after the water stops running. This will help to draw moisture out of the room, helping to prevent mold and mildew from forming.

    Close Shower Curtains after Showering

    Closing the shower curtain allows the water to drain off them more easily. Mold and mildew often form on the bottom and along the folds of shower curtains and liners when water becomes trapped. Closing the curtains after showers allows the water to run off faster and prevents it from collecting in the fold.

    Dry Shower Walls after Showering

    The key to preventing mold and mildew rests in eliminating the amount of moisture in the air and on surfaces in the bathroom. Drying the walls is a great way to help to reduce the moisture in the room.

    Repair Any Leaks

    It’s not always the obvious places where mold and mildew form. Hidden leaks beneath cabinets can be primary culprits for allowing mildew and mold to form. Repair them quickly, before they become problems.

    Keep Shower and Tub Surfaces Cleared Off

    Little bottles of shampoo, body wash, and other items trap water allowing mold and mildew to form. Keeping them cleared off gives the moisture nowhere to hide and makes it more difficult for mold and mildew to form.

    Despite the best preventative measures, sometimes mold and mildew do form. When this happens, Service Master in Spartanburg has you covered.
