What’s more, if it’s not efficiently and effectively remediated, mold can even render your home uninhabitable.

Bathrooms are among the most common areas of a home that act as an ideal breeding ground for mold and mildew. The primary reasons for this include a lack of adequate ventilation and hot, moist conditions, both of which mold and mildew thrive on. Showers and baths alike create lingering moisture that binds to your shower liner, linoleum surfaces, tiles, grout, walls, windows, and other areas. Without proper disbursement and drying of the moisture, mold will grow and spread. Leaking plumbing and water damage can likewise contribute to mold growth and spread. Should you fail to notice dripping from your bathroom toilet, sinks, or pipes, the accumulated standing water could leave you with a serious mold problem. Mold feeds on any organic matter and will consume it to spread to other areas of the home. Dust, 70-80 percent of which is composed of dead human skin cells, provides nutrition to mold, allowing it to spread.
In some cases, mold growth can be inevitable. But, fortunately, there are several ways in which you can help minimize the risk of mold and mildew growth and spread in the warm and wet conditions of your bathroom.
The first hint that there might be a mold problem in your home is finding a water leak or moist areas under sinks, carpets, in the attic, and other spaces.
