Follow these daily and weekly tips to avoid mold in your bathroom.

Preventing Mold & Mildew Growth in your Bathroom

Bathrooms are often susceptible to mold growth because if not vented properly, the moisture is trapped- and if you know anything about mold, you know that mold loves trapped moisture. Dust, dirt, and grime sitting on your bathroom’s surfaces can also lead to mold and mildew. Bathrooms should be cleaned weekly, but there are also daily and weekly steps to take in order to avoid mold growth in your bathroom.


  • Turn the exhaust fan on when showering or keep the door open/open windows in your bathroom for at least 10 minutes to help remove the humidity
  • After a shower, squeegee your tiles to remove the excess water
  • Empty garbage bins every other day.
  • Hang up towels right after a bath or shower. Leaving them on the floor can lead to musty odors


  • Clean the toilet bowls
  • Clean the shower head, shower, and sink
  • Clean the walls and floors; dust, grime and hair is mold food when left on surfaces for too long
  • Wash the shower mats in your washer
  • Replace hand and bath towels with fresh, clean linens
  • Wipe down mirrors
  • Wipe handles and faucets- they can hold onto bacteria, too!

Your main objective is to keep moisture levels to a minimum so not to create the perfect breeding ground for mold. By following these tips, you'll have a better control on minimizing mold growth.
