Cleaning a bathroom can be one of the most annoying chores in a household, but if you fall behind, it can become something even worse. Bathrooms are a haven for bacterial growth, which can make it easier for members of the household to get sick. Black mold is a terror in any home, and the bathroom is its favorite place to grow. If you aren’t proactive, these problems can spin out of control, and you’re facing something far worse than an annoying chore. Fortunately, these three tips can help you stay ahead of mold and bacteria so you don’t face the worst.
Moisture is the enemy. Mold and bacteria thrive in damp conditions. Showers and other bathroom activities release a lot of steam and water. It’s easy for a bathroom to stay damp for hours on end.
A good fan can help a lot with venting the moisture and drying the room. Opening doors and windows can also be valuable. In a dry climate like that of Phoenix, outdoor air dries bathrooms quickly.
You can also be proactive. Get a shower squeegee. If you run it down the walls after every shower, you move all of the water to the drain. This will reduce microbial growth. It will also reduce hard water residue and soap scum, and your shower will be much easier to clean on a regular basis.

Wash the Cloths
Moisture is still the enemy, and there are cloth materials in virtually every bathroom. Towels, rugs and fabric shower curtains hold on to water, and they make it easy to stimulate growth. If you wash them regularly, you can cut off that growth before it gets a foothold.
Shower curtains require the most attention. If you see any mold beginning to form, you can’t save the curtain. Simply replace it. The last thing you want is a source of mold spores that can spread across the bathroom.
Stay Ahead of Repairs
Drips and leaks are obviously bad. They add moisture to the equation that we don’t want. Cracks in the grout or tile are potentially even worse. Any small damage is an opening that mold and bacteria can use to get started. A crack in grout or tile can allow mold to grow in the walls. Once that happens, you’re in a nightmare scenario.
Stay aggressive when it comes to bathroom repairs. It will prevent the worst cases from getting started.
Of course, you have to clean the bathroom on a regular basis. Hopefully, you get to take care of a bathroom that you love. If not, you might find that there are affordable, amazing upgrades that can change your whole perspective and make your bathroom a place that inspires pride and awe.
