Got some black mold in showers? Before you freak out about black mold in shower health risks, here’s what you need to know about it and how to remove black mold from showers – shower caulk, shower grout, behind shower tiles and shower walls and shower ceilings, on shower curtains, and even in shower drains.
A while ago, I shared a little hack on how to remove mold from shower caulking that has been super popular! It’s apparently a very common problem!
That post has received a lot of feedback from people about black mold, what it is, and what really kills it and what really doesn’t.
Because, you know what? Many people were right. I hadn’t really removed the mold in the caulking, but had just bleached it, because it most certainly came back after about 9 months or so!
But, the caulking is NOT the only place that black mold grows in a shower! Black mold grows on the shower ceiling, on the shower wall, around the shower drain, on a shower curtain, and on shower grout.
I wanted to explore these other areas that grow black mold in a shower with you today! I know it’s super fun, right? But, I’d love to help you avoid any dangerous health risks that might come from letting that black mold in your shower continue to stay there!
Black Mold in Shower
First, let’s talk a little bit more about why black mold grows in showers and why black mold in showers is dangerous and the health risks associated with black mold in the shower.
What Causes Black Mold in Shower?
Mold loves to grow in warm, damp and humid places, which is most certainly the conditions that happen in showers!
If there is a mold problem in your home, you need to clean up the mold AND fix the water problem that is causing the mold to grow. That’s why it’s important to control humidity in your home, always use the bathroom ventilation fan, leave the bathroom door open (if you can), and/or open the bathroom window.
