  Prevent Mould In Bathrooms It can be very frustrating when mould continually appears in certain parts of your bathroom. Mould can often be difficult to get rid of, and if left for too long, can damage your bathroom and create a health hazard. An environment that is constantly getting wet creates an ideal breeding ground for mould. Bathrooms are damp, wet and full of moisture. Mould can appear in showers, in between bathroom tiles, on wallpaper, around toilets and sinks, or anywhere that gets extremely damp. So, what are the causes of bathroom mould?

Lack of ventilation

The main cause of mould issues around the home is usually poor ventilation. Mould thrives in damp environments where there is a lot of moisture in the air. Make sure you regularly air out your home by opening the windows and allowing fresh air to flow through your home. Bathrooms with poor ventilation systems will often attract mould.

Another key thing that causes mould is leaks. A leak will make your bathroom flooring wet and damp and provide a breeding ground for mould. As soon as you notice a leak, try and get it sorted as soon as possible.

Lack of regular cleaning

Dirty bathrooms that are in need of a deep clean will often have signs of mould. The longer you leave it between cleans the more likely it is that mould will grow. Try and clean your bathroom on a regular basis and get rid of any mould as soon as you spot it. Deep Clean Bath

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
