Bathroom Remodeling – Avoiding Mold
Tips for Preventing Mold and Mildew in the Bathroom with a Remodel
An advantage to remodeling your bathroom is that with a handful of design choices you can reduce the likelihood for mold and mildew problems. As any homeowner knows, a damp bathroom is fertile breeding ground for bacteria and even the cleanest bathroom can be susceptible to pesky – and potentially dangerous – mold growth. However, the bathroom remodeling team at Alure Home Improvements is well-versed on several techniques to help address this problem as part of our bathroom remodeling service.
The beauty of bathroom remodeling is that you can completely rejuvenate the décor of your bathroom, while making design choices that can also limit your risk for future mold growth. Here are some popular methods for addressing mold and mildew growth and reproduction:
- Invest in an acrylic tub or shower that is nonporous and inhospitable to mold spores
- Add countertops that are nonporous, such as stainless steel, marble, or granite
- Improve the ventilation of the bathroom during the redesign
- Maximize natural lighting with a skylight or new replacement windows with maximum glass surface
- Add an exhaust fan to circulate moisture and stagnant air
- Use proper caulking and sealants
