Mold is a very serious problem here in Florida. Mold can cause serious health problems, even leading to death. One of the most common places where mold grows in an average home is the bathroom, due to the high moisture content typically found there. Moisture can regularly come from hot water steam, leaky pipes or fixtures, damp fabrics, and even the bathroom’s wallpaper, grout, or drywall.
Because the moisture in your bathroom has such a high potential for causing mold growth, it’s important to do whatever you can to control the moisture in your bathroom. Try to remove wet clothes or towels from the bathroom as soon as possible. Fix leaks as soon as you notice them. Above all, improve the ventilation in your bathroom. Make sure your exhaust fan is clean and working well, and then use it during and after each shower. If you’ve tried all of this and you’re still seeing mold growth, you could have a professional home inspector help you identify reasons for it.
