Ventilation Fans

Ventilation fans are a great tool for mould prevention as they remove warm, moist air out of the bathroom. The best time to use ventilation fans is during your bath or shower and to keep it running for 30 minutes afterwards to continue to remove excess moisture from the air.

Open Windows

If you’re finding a build-up of mould on the ceiling of your bathroom you most likely have poor air circulation flowing through. A simple solution to prevent this kind of build-up is to have fresh air circulating through your bathroom via an open window to pick up any moisture and take it back outside. Ideally, and if privacy permits, have a window open in tandem with your ventilation fan throughout your shower or bath.

Remove Excess Water

One of the most effective ways to prevent mould growing in your shower is to remove excess water with a squeegee. When you’re finished in the shower, wipe away the water from the walls to make them as dry as possible.

Keep Products Out of the Shower

It may seem like an arduous task but those shampoo and conditioner bottles sitting in the corner of the shower remain damp for a long time, making them a prime target for black mould in the bathroom. Wiping them down and then placing them in the cupboard when you’re finished with them will help to prevent the build-up of mould in the shower.

Check Your Grouting

When grout is constantly wet, mould can form, both inside and on the surface and start to break it down. If areas of your shower grout have started to crack or peel, there is a good chance you’ll need to re-grout those sections to prevent the mould from re-growing.
