    How to get rid of mould in bathroom?


    We have 2 bathrooms, both cleaned the same amount but only one of them is always developing mould the other one stays clear of it - why? How do I stop bathroom mould?

    "Use either a vinegar, Borax, or bleach solution in a spray bottle to tackle the mold. Simply spray the solution on showers, baths, basins, tiles, grout, or caulking. Then use either a cleaning cloth or a toothbrush to remove the mold. You can also remove mold from bathroom ceilings or walls using similar methods.
    hope this helps."

    "Hi, I would clean it with hot soapy water then use a mold & mildew spray from your supermarket.
    Once cleaned down & dry paint with mould repellent paint & keep the room ventilated at all times. In the colder months try to keep your radiator on low constantly.

    "Mould on walls can be caused by humid conditions and lack of ventilation. Also it can be any plumbing leaks or badly insulating heating pipes. You need to inspected the wall and the area around. Must of the time it is just lack of ventilation. It is a common problem in UK. The wall can be treated with a block mould and repainted but you need to discover the cause of problem."

    "Hi there, the same area continues to regenerate mould as it is th most damp area. Try and keep the area dry, contact a mould specialist as it may need mould removal sessions.

    I hope this helps."

    "Moulds develop where there is dampness and no enough ventilation, make sure that you leave the window open as much as you can and do not leave wet clothes to dry in the toilet. Do not cover the radiator in the toilet and have a working extraction fan in place to remove any moisture."

    "You can use mould cleaner sprays or a ventilator to prevent the mould however try to allow for air to escape as I think it is being cause by lack of ventilation however we can inspect it should you request. Jose"

    "First of all you need a air flow in the room . This problem happened to me and I never had a constant air flow, ie a window, vent or fan. I replaced the window as I had old wooden ones . Then I cleaned the ceiling and walls with bleach and repaint. Since then I’ve had no problem"

    "Mould grows quicker in a none ventilated room, the best product to use on tiles is mould and mildew remover BUT remember to follow the instructions on use as leaving it on too long will discolour the silicone around the shower/bath."
