How to stop mold build up in your shower:

If you have lived in the Sacramento Area for any length of time you already know that mold will eventually accumulate on/in your shower(s). Here are some steps you can do to prevent mold build up:

Step #1: Before exiting the shower take a window squeegee and wipe down the excess water from shower walls and doors;

Step#2: Leave the shower door open and allow and do not close until dry. Leaving the shower door open allows for more air flow which means the shower will dry faster; hence, less opportunity for mold growth;

Step#3: NEVER USE CLOROX BLEACH! Bleach is an acid that can and will permanently damage your grout lines. Only use an alkaline cleaner such as Mr. Clean or Spic & Span. If you want a safe green alternative try good old fashioned hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen Peroxide kills anaerobic bacteria and can be used as a bleaching agent to remove the discoloration of the mold.

Step#4: Have your tile showers periodically cleaned by a professional. Make sure they are able to repair cracked and broken grout lines as well. You may need to calk corners and edges depending on the type of shower you have.

Step#5: Seal grout lines with a water tight sealer. If you have natural stone in your shower, such as travertine, seal the stone as well. The proper sealer can create a water tight barrier preventing mold, mildew, and possible water damage.

If you have questions please feel free to contact me at (916) 525-2456. Until next time...
