    Mold Removal in the Bathroom  

    There’s nothing worse than finding mold in a bathroom, whether it’s mold in the shower, mold around the toilet, mold on the floor tiles and grout, or mold on the ceiling.

    Despite this, black bathroom mold is so ubiquitous that many people find themselves regularly washing their shower tiles and grout.

    This is due to the fact that mold in the bathroom is not a one-time problem. It’s a long-term problem that could repeat if no actions are done to manage and prevent mold growth in the bathroom.

    Our mold specialists at CPR24 Restoration have assembled everything you need to know about bathroom mold, including what it looks like, what causes it, and how to get rid of it and prevent it from returning. Let’s get this party started!

    About mold in the bathroom

    Consider the following scenario. Where does the steam go when you shower? Where does all the water splashing around go when you take a bath? All of this moisture and water build up on surfaces like bathroom walls, floors, and ceilings if you don’t have an adequate ventilation system in place, leading to mold formation.

    Mold can be found in your bathroom in a variety of places, including around bathtubs, sinks, toilets, and windows; on walls and grout; behind tiles and cabinets; and in corners.

    Ignoring the problem of bathroom mold will not solve it. Unless you take action, the mold problem will continue to worsen.

    For more complicated bathroom mold removal operations, you should hire remediation professional. CPR24 Restoration provides quality mold treatment services for bathrooms, basements, and every other room in your home in all the GTA areas.

    Mold in the bathroom is caused by a variety of factors.

    When it comes to mold, there’s no avoiding the fact that it’s caused by a variety of factors. Moisture is undeniably the most common source of mold spores formation. Because bathrooms are one of the most humid places in the house, it’s easy to see why they’re the ideal breeding habitat for all types of mold and mildew, particularly dangerous black mold.

    If you have a mold problem in your bathroom, it’s likely that you also have an unresolved moisture problem, such as:

    • Moisture incursion from a leak, flood, or another source.
    • Inadequate or insufficient ventilation.
    • Inadequate air exchange.
    • The relative humidity is high (above 50 percent ).
    • Uncleanliness in general

    Whatever your moisture issue is, you must address it right now if you want to permanently eliminate mold.

    It takes a lot of effort to get rid of mold or keep it out of your bathroom, and you must be constant with frequent mold inspections and cleanings, or the mold will return. For quick and successful bathroom mold removal, contact the trained and experienced professionals at CPR24 Restoration.

    Black mold in bathroom

    The renowned black mold, or Stachybotrys chartarum, is perhaps the greatest threat to your bathroom and your health. This mold is a homeowner’s worst nightmare because it is toxic, difficult to treat, and readily spreads.

    Bathroom baseboards, shower grout and caulking, bathroom walls, and any moist cellulose-rich material like cardboard, towels, and drywall are all common places to locate black mold.

    But the fact that black mold develops behind tiles and drywall, as well as beneath floor tiles, makes it extremely difficult to find and remove from bathrooms.

    When it comes to eliminating black mold from bathrooms, safety is the most important consideration due to its toxic nature and potential for major health problems. Black mold removal in bathrooms should only be attempted by skilled, licensed mold professionals who can assure proper containment and effective remediation.

    Mold Removal: A Step-by-Step Guide

    Fortunately, the visible mold in the bathroom is relatively straightforward to remove.

    Follow these steps to eradicate black mold from hard surfaces:

    1. In a spray bottle, combine 1 part bleach with 2 parts water and spritz the affected area.
    2. Allow 10 minutes for the solution to settle. The mold should start to fade away on its own, but if persistent spots of mold remain, scrub the mold away using a coarse brush (for larger areas) or an old toothbrush (for smaller areas).
    3. After that, thoroughly rinse the surface with water.

    If you don’t want to use bleach, white vinegar, hydrogen peroxide or baking soda are effective natural alternatives. Vinegar can be used in the same way that bleach is.

    • To use baking soda, make a paste by mixing it with a tiny amount of water.
    • Apply it on the mold, wait 10 minutes, then scrub it off with a brush. Other common household cleaning products, such as soap and water, will usually suffice.

    You’ll need to contact a professional team to clean and repair the area behind the bathroom tile if there’s evidence of mold growing on the drywall or subfloor—the tiles look to be askew or move when you touch them.
