Bathroom Mold Removal with These Simple Tips

Finding mold anywhere in your home can be unsettling. Certain types of molds can cause health problems. If you’re concerned that mold in your home may be dangerous, contact a professional for mold testing and remediation. However, it’s important to remember that mold is common, and most types of mold are harmless. Still, the presence of mold is unsightly, so you’ll want to remove it. Fortunately, you can remove bathroom mold with these tips.

Step One: Buy or Prepare Mold Cleaner

Mold cleaners and removers are available at most home improvement stores, such as Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware, and Dazey’s Hubbards. You can also find them in Walmart, Fred Meyer, and other retailers. You may also find them in office supply stores such as Office Depot or Staples. Online retailers also sell mold removal solutions.

Step Two: Wash Away the Bathroom Mold

Use the mold remover to wash the bathroom mold by following the directions on the bottle. Typically, you’ll spray the affected area and allow it to penetrate for 5-10 minutes. Then, use a damp cloth to wash away the mold.

If you prefer not to use mold cleaner, you can substitute a mixture of dish soap and water. Simply scrub the area with the soap mixture until the mold is no longer visible.

Then, be sure to let the dampened area dry.

Step Three: Apply Bleach or Vinegar

Before you begin this step, be sure to crack a window for ventilation. You should also wear gloves and glasses to protect your hands and eyes. Then, combine ¼ cup bleach with one quart of water, and mix well. You can either apply the bleach solution with a sponge, or transfer it to an empty spray bottle, and spray the affected area. Allow the bleach mixture to remain for an hour, and then wipe the area clean.

If you do not wish to use bleach, you can use white vinegar. You’ll follow the same steps if you’re using vinegar.
