Mold and Mildew Removal in Bathrooms
Are you suffering from Mold and Mildew in your bathroom?
Unsightly black mold and mildew growth was the main reason that I decided to remodel my bathroom.
What's in this article...
I had spent months of cleaning and scrubbing and cutting out the worst of it but I eventually had to face up to the truth that I was beaten.
I couldn’t keep it back any longer.
It was only after I built my new bathroom that I found the secret to keeping the mold at bay. Had I known about this mold removal product before I might not have needed to rip my room apart.
I do love the new room though so there is a silver lining 😉
Soon after my newly gleaming bathroom was finished the dreaded black mold started to return. I was horrified but luckily I learned how to prevent mold and mildew ever taking over my space again.
Black Mold Symptoms
Is mold in the bathroom dangerous?
Not all types of mold are dangerous but it’s difficult to tell which kind of mold you have without performing a test on either by calling in experts or by using a mold test kit.
I’m not going to bore you with all the long and hard to pronounce names that different strains of mold are given and I’m not going to list all of the huge number of symptoms that some types of black mold are claimed to cause.
I will just say that some molds can be very toxic and you certainly don’t want to leave it untreated if you have this in your bathroom.
I will list here a small selection of the many horrific problems that black mold can cause.
Black Mold Symptoms
- Mental problems such as confusion, dizziness and memory loss.
- Difficulty breathing, coughing and bleeding in the lungs.
- Irregular heartbeat and low blood pressure.
- Eye inflammation and blurry vision.
- Infertility and impotence.
- Fatigue, aches and pains.
On top of all this black mold and mildew growth in your bathroom looks awful, no matter whether it is toxic or not. You will want to get rid of it and sooner rather than later.

Mold Armor FG502 Instant Mold and Mildew Stain Remover
A few short weeks after I had remodeled my bathroom the black returned. Just a little in the corner of the grout to start with but it was slowly growing.
My heart sank.
I suddenly had visions of my lovely new bathroom covered in horrible slimy black mold again and it was almost too much to bear.
Then a friend told me about Mold Armor. It’s a spray that will kill the mold and turn it all white again.
Of course I didn’t believe it. I had tried everything and nothing had worked against the fungus growth.
But I hadn’t tried Mold Armor so I thought that I would give it a go.
What happened next was almost beyond my belief. I sprayed it onto the black patches and in less than a few minutes I could already see that the black spots were getting smaller.
I re-sprayed the mold patches the next day and then again a few days after that and before long my bathroom was back to it’s original gleaming glory.
Mold Armor works and I am so pleased to have discovered it. Get some today and try it out on your mold and mildew stains.
What causes mold in the bathroom?
Black mold is a fungus. It is carried by spores which are often air born and they can get anywhere. In order to grow the mold fungus needs a warm damp environment which it finds in your bathroom.
If you want to prevent the fungus from growing then your best defense is ventilation to keep the room nice and dry when it isn’t being used.
Make sure that you have some kind of extraction system that will pull the water vapor out of the room after use and open windows whenever you have the opportunity.
Preventing mold and mildew in your bathroom
At least once a week you should spray a little Mold Armor into the cracks and corners of the shower and tiles where mold is likely to get a foothold.
You don’t need much so use it sparingly.
If you spot any sign of black mold or mildew starting to grow then give it a spray immediately.
If the spots are small then one application will generally be enough.
How to remove mold in a bathroom
Depending on how bad your mold problem is you may need to start by taking out and replacing any silicon sealers that may be infected.
You can use Mold Armor to kill the surface mold and stop it all getting any worse than it is but if the silicon has gone black then it might be difficult to turn it back to it’s original color.
When you have taken out the old sealer apply Mold Armor and leave it to dry before replacing with new silicon.
This should prevent the mold from growing back from the underside.
Warning: Make sure that you wear some old clothes to do this because if you get any Mold Armor on them it will stain beyond repair.
Give everywhere a good spray with Mold Armor then leave it for ten minutes before washing everything down.
Let it dry then spray all the affected areas again.
Repeat the mold spraying daily until you can see that you have it on the run. Before you know it your bathroom will start to look like new again.
