How to Prevent Bathroom Mold

Mold is something you definitely don’t want growing in your home; under normal circumstances, this fungus is in charge of breaking down organic matter. However, if it’s on your property, it can seriously damage it and affect the health of your family.

One place that’s particularly prefered by mold is your bathroom – humidity sets the perfect environment for its growth. Fortunately, there are many things to keep it out of your bathroom and at Dreyer’s DKI in Gainesville, we will tell you a few useful tips.


Like we said before, the moisture in your bathroom is mold food; open the door and windows after you shower to avoid that the steam builds up – you can also try using a ventilator. Hawaii has a humid climate so it would be more appropriate to turn on the air conditioning.

Shower Curtain?

If you have a shower curtain, that’s an invitation to mold growth; make sure to stretch it out to allow it to dry. Don’t forget to use a cloth to remove water from your walls. Also, wash your bathroom rug frequently.


Set a date to clean your bathroom at least once a week. Avoid using abrasive cleansers, they can damage your tiles and walls. Also, limit the items you have in your shower: shampoo bottles and other bathroom products are places where mold can grow. Mold can also be in your plumbing, so use a product to unclog and clean your drains.
