Have you ever went to use the bathroom and there was nasty black goo inside? That is black mold. Homeowners have been known to pour bleach on it and let it go but it will come back. Here are some quick tips to help you with toilet and shower mold you may find in your home.
What is black mold?
Finding mold in your toilet can make you feel very uneasy or dirty but it happens to everyone. Black mold is a fungus. All mold thrives in dark moist places and this one in no exception. Toilet mold is not just one type of mold, it can actually be various species.
Using Vinegar in Your Toilet Tank
Using white vinegar has been known to help clean grime and mold. Spraying it on all the areas that you see the mold can do a lot. Let the vinegar set and then take a toilet brush to scrub it out. This also works for your toilet tank. Just spray, sit, and scrub.
Mold in the Toilet Bowl
Mold in your toilet bowl can be alarming but it is okay. It is fairly easy to clean and your bright white toilet will be good as new. Toilet mold can come in various colors but black is most common. Just like other mold it does release spores which can potentially be dangerous. Take the right precautions to ensure that your toilet is clean and clean it regularly for best results.
What causes black mold inside of toilets?
Bathrooms tend to be the most humid part of our homes. Showers, baths, heated styling tools, and bathroom doors are typically closed more than other doors in the house. With the doors being closed, there is less ventilation which causes humidity. Toilet bowls are usually open so mold spores that are in the air can take root inside of our toilet bowls. Best option is to take care of it as soon as you see it.
