However we try, we never seem to be fully able to remove black mould from our bathrooms.
These repulsive black stains, which generally appear on the fugue between tiles as well as on the bath lining, are not only visually unpleasant, but are also bad for your health, especially if they spread across other parts of your apartment.
THE BATHROOM – THE HOTBED OF MOULD
The bathroom is a hotbed of mould because it is damp, hot and deficient in air. To prevent growth of mould, you must first change the conditions: if possible, leave the bathroom window or door ajar while taking a shower.
If there isn’t a window to your bathroom, use an air damper or ventilator and leave them on, even when there isn’t steam, as there is dampness in such cases as well.
- Everyday care
Don’t be misled that you will successfully remove mould if you scour the tiles every day. It’s painstaking and time-consuming, and to speak the truth, no one has the time to lock themselves up for an hour every day in order to clean the bathroom thoroughly. But, some everyday routines can help:
– clean the remains of shampoo, body oils and creams right after having a shower;
– dry the wet towels outside the bathroom,
– use synthetic bath curtains as they absorb less damp.
