Problems Caused by Mold in the Bathroom - Image 1


Mold can appear in as little as 24-48 hours, meaning it's a threat even if you regularly clean your bathroom. Even if mold doesn't appear on visible surfaces, it can still grow behind the walls and on bathroom ceilings, on the insulation, and anywhere else it has a food source and moisture exposure.

There are several problems that arise from mold in the bathroom. First and foremost are the health risks, as mold can cause irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin, among other potentially severe problems. Secondly, the longer mold growth persists in your home, the greater the work becomes to clean up the problem and make your home safe to live in.

Common causes of bathroom mold include:

  • Lack of proper ventilation & excessive moisture
  • Leaky plumbing, toilets, & sinks
  • Damp, organic materials such as wood, grout, drywall, & rugs
