    Thanks for the article I just re-caulked my bathroom and there is some great tips you mentioned to be aware of. I watched the documentary moldy the other day by Dave Asprey and mold seems to be a much bigger problem then most think or know of.

      Thank You for your comment. Several years ago, I had re-caulked my bathroom but used the wrong one. Needless to say, it all turned black. I found out later that I should have used the mold resistant caulk. So, after ripping it out and using the right one, it has been mold free since. Of course, keeping it clean as my article states helps tremendously.

    Hi Tony, great post, makes one think! I use scrubbing bubbles on my shower is this a wise thing to do, it seems to clean quite well? I have lived in this house for the past 4 years and I don’t see any mold, can it be invisible to the naked eye? I truly don’t want mold of any kind in my shower or house for that matter. The heavy duty cleansers you have listed under equipment and cleaners is to remove the mold, just hoping that my cleanser scrubbing bubbles does enough.

      As long as it’s not visible, then you should be okay. This is primarily for showers that are either not regularly cleaned or stays damp. Mold thrives on damp areas and the soap scum is food to them. It could be black, green, pink or white.

    I love this post. It’s definitely something I’m going to make my brother-in-law read. He always insists on cleaning the bathroom but never touches the shower for some reason.

    These tips are awesome and incredibly helpful. I hope my sister and brother-in-law can get rid of the mold in their shower before it becomes too much of an issue.

    Thanks for the tips.

      Besides the toilet being number one, Showers and/or Bathtubs are the second most important areas to clean. If it goes behind the surrounds, then you now have to face wood rot in the walls. This along with health issues that can arise. It’s a cascading effect.

    We had issues with damp in both our bedroom and the bathroom.
    I got so fed up with my bathroom tiles looking so grotty, even after using the traditional bathroom cleaners that I started to use a bleach and water mix which you recommend and it works wonders! My bathroom now looks brand new and I love the ‘swimming pool’ smell.

    Now to deal with the damp in the bedroom….

    Interesting article. How do you remove that pinkish tinted stuff–not sure if it’s mold. I have been using bleach, but it’s not working.

      Thank You Sandra for your comment.

      It could have been a pink mold that you cleaned. This may have been a stain which the bleach didn’t remove after killing the mold. Depending on the surface or material it resides on tells how to proceed. If it’s cloth (such as a shower curtain), then washing with gentle detergent could be the answer. All other surfaces may need to be scrubbed or use a stronger cleaner capable of penetrating deeper. We have a few cleaners listed on this website that are capable of removing stains.
