Learn how to remove black mold from your bathroom's tile walls and prevent it from forming in the future. Mold can cause respiratory problems and allergic reactions if the spores are breathed in. Eliminating mold quickly will prevent problems and will improve the way that your bathroom looks. 

Use The Following Items

  • rubber gloves
  • dust mask
  • bleach
  • vinegar
  • water
  • spray bottle
  • scrub brush
  • towels
  • trash bag
  • sponge
  • fan
  • dehumidifier

Remove The Mold

Protect your hands and face by wearing a pair of rubber gloves and a face mask. Open the window in your bathroom so that surroundings are well ventilated. Add an equal amount of bleach, vinegar, and water to a spray bottle. Shake up the contents well so that they are thoroughly mixed. Spray the tiles inside of your bathroom and allow the mixture to penetrate for several minutes. Rub the surface of each tile with a sponge.

If stubborn stains are present, use a scrub brush to loosen them. Once all signs of the mold are eliminated, rinse the tiles off with plain water. Dry the surface of each tile with a towel. Dispose of the cleaning tools that you used so that the mold spores that are on them are removed from your home. 

Prevent Mold From Forming

Spray the tiles with a light coating of mold and mildew blocking spray to prevent mold from forming in the future. This product is sold by many retailers. You can take some additional steps to keep the tiles protected. Get into the habit of drying off wet surfaces after showering or taking a bath. Open the window inside of your bathroom to keep the room ventilated on warm days. A small fan can also be set up in one of the corners to add ventilation if it is cold outside and you do not want to open the window.

If your home tends to be humid on a regular basis, invest in a dehumidifier. The dehumidifier will reduce humidity and will improve the air quality inside of your home. Using all of these steps are also useful for additional rooms in your home if you are concerned about mold forming. 

After the tiles in your bathroom are clean and mold is no longer an issue, continue to keep the tiles maintained by cleaning them regularly and drying off wet surfaces as needed. For more information about mold prevention and removal, contact a company like Authorized Services.
