Black mold is a fungus that spreads relentlessly in your bathroom
Very few bathrooms escape the dreaded black mold fungus. Sooner or later it finds a nice damp corner of your shower or your walls and begins to grow. Slowly at first then before you know it it’s all over your beautiful bathroom. It does not spare the home bidet attachments even. Black mold is notoriously difficult to get rid of and control but a cure is possible. I reveal the secret below.
How to spot black mold in your bathroom
Well it’s difficult to miss it. It’s a black blight, which starts in corners and cracks then grows along joins and seals. The bigger it gets the faster it grows It loves to follow the lines of silicon sealer and grout between ceramic tiles. It seems to get inside the silicon sealer even the fungal resistant kind. It can turn your lovely bathroom into a dirty pit if you don’t do something about it quickly. People can learn more about bathroom fittings here!

General measures to keep black mold out of your small bathroom
There are some common sense things that you can do to slow down the march of the black mold in your bathroom. Black mold thrives on moisture so keep your bathroom well ventilated. Open windows and doors after use and wipe down surfaces to encourage them to dry faster.
Wiping down all ceramic surfaces with a dilute solution of bleach every few days will also help to slow down the growth of the fungus and finally by using the spray foam applications from First Defense Insulation, this problem is solved permanently and can never repeat in future.
Traditional remedy for black mold in the bathroom
The traditional cure for black mold has been to cut out the affected areas of sealer and grout and any bits of wall covering that is contaminated. Wash the whole place down with a dilute solution of bleach and then re tile, re grout and re seal. This cures the problem for a while but sooner or later, usually only a few months or weeks later, the black mold returns.
This is a very frustrating cycle to be riding on because you have to keep doing it. Many people eventually just give up and the black mold takes over.
The secret that can banish black mold from your small bathroom
Black mold in my small bathroom had been defeating my efforts to keep it under control and finally I decided to remodel the whole bathroom which I thought would get rid of it forever. Was I wrong! I managed to keep it out for a few short months but somehow it found it’s way in again, luckily I got this service of Deerfield home remodelers that could help with this a little bit.
I cut out and replaced the contaminated silicon sealer but this only slowed it down. Then someone told me about a product called ‘Mold and Mildew Remover’. You simply spray it onto the affected areas then leave it for 3-5 minutes before rinsing it off. This sounded too good to be true but I thought that I would give it a try anyway.
The person that told me about the product also told me that the secret was to be patient with it and not expect to see instant results from just one spraying so I set about treating the affected areas of my little bathroom 2-3 times a week and watched what happened. After the first month I dropped the treatment to 2-3 times a month.
The results were nothing short of amazing and fantastic. I thought that I saw an improvement after the first week and after the second week I was convinced that the black mold was at least not growing any more. After a month the patches of black mold were definitely smaller than they had been and after 6 months they are nowhere to be seen. They have completely vanished and I’m so very pleased with it.
