In order to survive, mold needs a constantly moist environment. This is the main reason why your bathroom is a favorable place for these organisms to grow. Without proper action to prevent mold, it can cause harm to you and your family’s health. It’s also frustrating to clean up tough mold and mildew just to see it come back. Fortunately, some minor bathroom renovations can help you get rid of this issue permanently.
Here are a few bathroom renovation ideas that can eliminate mold and mildew.
- Upgrading Your Ventilation
Inadequate bathroom ventilation is a key cause of mold growth, so make this a priority during the remodeling process. Consider increasing the number of exhaust fans and windows in the room. Make more floor space available for a more open and airy feel.
- Converting a Tub to a Shower
Mold is known to thrive in old, worn-out bathtubs, which are full of mold-prone nicks, nooks and corners that are difficult to clean. The space can be converted into a shower to reduce mold growth. With a tub conversion, you can transform a moldy bathtub into a gleaming shower that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
- Using Mildew-Resistant Materials
There are a variety of mildew-resistant building materials available now that you can use in your remodel. If you’re repainting the walls, use a mold-resistant paint or one with a mildew-resistant ingredient to provide your walls an added layer of protection. Consider installing vinyl flooring, which is easy to maintain, inexpensive and resistant to water, mold and mildew. Vinyl flooring is also available in sheet or tile form, and it is available in a variety of colors to match your taste.
