Tips on Preventing Mold
There are a few different ways to prevent mold and mildew growth in your home.
For instance, if you don’t have an exhaust fan in your bathroom, you need to install one. Keep it running during and after baths and showers. Anytime there is more moisture in the air than normal, using the exhaust fan can help clear it out so that it doesn’t seep into walls.
If you already have an exhaust fan but it’s not working well enough, install a stronger one that will provide better ventilation. You may also want to install a window with a screen to open to help dry out the room.
Clean your bathroom with a diluted bleach-and-water mixture every now and then to kill germs within the room, as well.
Whether you’re renovating your entire bathroom or making smaller updates, you can refresh the look of your bath and prevent mold growth.
When you're ready to repaint your bathroom, be sure to use the right paint. Semi-gloss paint is what you want for your bathroom to prevent mold growth.
There's a basic rule to follow when choosing paint sheen's... The higher the sheen, the higher the shine — and the higher the shine, the more durable it will be, and harder for mold to grow on.
