How to Prevent Mould in the Bathroom

Domestic Cleaners London

Mould is a great health risk, especially to people that suffer from allergies and asthma.  Moisture, humidity and warm temperatures are the key ingredients for mould to grow, and the bathroom usually creates these perfect conditions.

Keeping the bathroom clean is vital for preventing mould.  Walls and hard surfaces should be cleaned on a regular basis.  Using a mixture of vinegar and warm water is great for easily removing dirt without leaving a film and preventing mould.

Mould doesn’t just grow on walls and ceilings.  It occurs wherever there is a presence of moisture.  Make sure you always wash and dry your shower curtain, and always wash your bathroom rug, especially if you step on it straight out of the bath or shower with soaked feet.

Check for leaks whenever you clean the bathroom and have them repaired immediately.

Keeping the bathroom well ventilated as well as cleaned will also help in preventing mould because it minimizes the amount of humidity.  If you do not have an extractor to expel the moist air, then keeping the window open will do the trick.

If you do have an extractor, keep it running for twenty minutes after you have taken a hot shower.  You should also consider buying a dehumidifier, which can reduce the humidity in the bathroom up to sixty percent.

If you do not have the time or energy to regularly clean the bathroom or indeed the rest of the house, then you could receive help from professional domestic cleaners.  All you have to do is pick up the phone and make a call for a free quote from a domestic house cleaning company in London.  They can arrange for an experienced housekeeper to come and perform regular domestic cleaning on a daily or weekly basis, or however often you prefer, or they could do a one-off spring cleaning service.

These house cleaners can offer additional domestic cleaning services such as carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning at an affordable price.
