Tips on Preventing Mold and Mildew Buildup on Your Shower Tile and Grout

shower mold and mildew

We all dread mold and mildew especially in the shower. They are not a pleasant sight, and we cringe if we see them, especially if struggle with allergies or respiratory issues. The shower is where mold and mildew grow most often so are a few tips to prevent these unsightly fungi from making an appearance in your home.

Mold and mildew love warm, moist areas, therefore your shower is the perfect breeding ground for them. You might see them on the walls and ceilings, but you are especially going see them on your shower tiles and in your grout. There are a couple of things you can do to prevent it from happening.

Ventilate the space

If your bathroom doesn’t have a vent, open a window open if possible, or open the door as soon as your shower is over to keep the cool air running into your bathroom and avoid keeping the warm steaming air trapped.

Dry the tiles

This may seem like a bit of a hassle, but it’s good to use a cloth to dry off your tiles and shower door after your shower/curtain. This is just a quick wipe down and will go a long way to keep the moisture down and the mold and mildew away.

Spray Tiles with Anti-Mold Solution

Try spraying your tiles once a week to help keep mold away (you can either buy one or try making your own – mix equal parts of water and white vinegar in a spray bottle).

Let In Light

Mildew especially loves dark places. One of the easiest things you can do to limit its appearance in your bathroom is to let the shades up to let in light. You don’t actually need natural light either; you can put your lights on a timer to keep fungus away.

Seal your Grout

You can seal your grout to help to prevent mold and mildew. Resealing your grout annually should be enough to help prevent mildew by keeping the water out.

Mold and mildew are dangerous United visitors in any home. Spend a little time preventing their growth with a few of these simple measures.
