YASS plumbing tips: Easy Ways to Remove Molds from Showers
Showers and damp places are the perfect breeding places for mold to grow. Moist, warm environments, and the right amount of moisture, are required for molds to thrive. They breed in bathrooms and other areas where water is present, such as showers, basements, and laundry rooms. Therefore, these areas must be properly maintained to prevent this unpleasant occurrence from taking place in your home or blocked drains in Greenwich.
These fungi are a major cause of respiratory allergies, including bronchitis and asthma, and sinus problems that can be life-threatening in children and adults who have weak immune systems or who are undergoing chemotherapy treatments for cancer. In some cases, fungal infections can lead to more serious conditions such as pneumonia and other types of pneumonia, or even death in severe cases of invasive mold infections (invasive mycoses). The fungus breaks through the skin into the bloodstream or soft tissues.
To fully get rid of mold in your shower, use a cleanser specifically designed for mold removal and soak the area with it for at least 15 minutes. Then rinse well with water to see any signs of mold growth. If not, you’re good! To get rid of fungus under sinks or tubs, first, run warm water into the faucet, sprinkle baking soda inside the sink/tub, wait 5-10 seconds. Then flush out the water (or just turn on the hot water, but don’t leave the house for two days). The fungi will be washed away.
If you’re unsure what’s causing the mold in your bathroom, call professional plumbers who unclog blocked drains in Greenwich and remove molds permanently.
Showerheads are a breeding ground for mineral deposits and mold. When that happens, it’s a good idea to change the shower head to prevent problems from occurring down the road or if there is water damage already present in your bathroom. There is a great chance that the leaky fixture has cracked the tile/plaster. If you are installing a new shower head for yourself or an older one that needs replacing to remove the existing deposits, you should be able to find one at any hardware store for under $20.
You can also scrub your shower head with vinegar and baking soda to remove any mold. Gently scrub the moldy area using a brush or toothbrush, and rinse it off thoroughly before adding soap to help prevent re-growth.
The best way to prevent mold on shower heads is to prevent them from forming in the first place. This can be accomplished by keeping humidity levels down and having an air filter that doesn’t allow any dirt or dust into your home through its intake vents and ducts. You should also make sure that there are no leaks in your house because moisture builds up where it can easily become moldy if left unchecked. Once mold has begun growing inside a structure, it becomes very difficult to get rid of, so if you see signs of mold in your home, you need to take action immediately. You can hire a professional plumber who unclogs blocked drains in Greenwich, or you could try cleaning out yourself.
