Bathroom & Shower Mold
All mold needs moisture to grow, and no place in your house has more moisture than the bathroom. Due to humidity, condensation, weak bathroom fans, and other water sources, bathrooms are the ideal environment for mold to grow.
Bathroom mold is common and likely, but there's no reason to panic if a small spot appears on a shower tile. However, professional help is recommended when there is a serious mold problem, such as mold growing on drywall or wood subflooring. Professional help is always recommended when the affected area is larger than 10 square feet.

Causes of Bathroom Mold:
- Lack of ventilation & excessive moisture
- Leaky plumbing, toilets & sinks
