How to keep mold and mildew away

Moist conditions in your bathroom combined with the Georgia humidity can make for a pretty damp bathroom. The moisture in turn can create mold and mildew which is a hazard to your family and pets. Did you know that breathing in mold spores can cause a variety of Heath issues including mold growth in your sinuses! Below you will find some helpful tips to keep your bathroom mold free and your family healthy:

– Wash your shower liner.
Remove the liner from your shower rod and wash in the washing machine with your normal detergent and a few towels. The towels will scrub the shower curtain while it washes. When it’s done throw it in the dryer for a few minutes to get most of the water off.

– Remove the mold and mildew from your shower stall.
In a spray bottle combine 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide to 1 cup of water or equal parts bleach and water. Spray the surface of your shower.

– Let the light shine in.
Light helps reduce mold growth. If you don’t have a window leave the lights on for a little while after you shower.

– Spray your shower every day.
After you shower spray a daily shower spray to help prevent mold and mildew.

– Run your bathroom fan.
The fan will help the air circulate and dry your shower quicker. Mold and mildew need water to grow so the dryer your bathroom is the less chance it will have to form.

– Hang your towels.
Hanging towels allows them to dry properly and prevents mildew from forming.

– Clean your bathroom regularly.
