Keep Mold at Bay with Acrylic in Your Bathroom

November 26, 2018

Mold is the enemy of homeowners everywhere. It can spread through your home from within and, if left unchecked, can lead to serious damages and even health problems. Today we’re going to talk about mold, what it is, how it can get out of hand, and how acrylic can help prevent it. Let’s take a look.

What is Mold?

Mold is a fungus that spreads through the production of spores. When the spores are given the nutrients and conditions needed to thrive, they will grow stronger and spread their influence wider. There are a wide variety of molds that exist within your home and though they can cause health problems for you and your family, most forms of mold aren’t exceptionally dangerous.

How Can I Keep Mold Out of My House?

Unfortunately, there is no perfect way to keep mold spores out of your home entirely. However, what you can do is keep the mold from thriving.

For the most part, mold needs warmth, humidity, and moisture to thrive. So, as you continue about your business at home, try to keep your home dry and cool. Leaky windows and pipes should be addressed as soon as possible to cut down on excessive moisture. You should also make sure that your laundry room, shower, and kitchen are properly ventilated.

Bathrooms can be wonderlands of warm, damp, moisture for mold to enjoy. However, an acrylic solid shower surround or liner can help immensely. Both of these features will provide watertight bathing experiences without the opportunity for water to leak beneath your floors and into your walls.

What Kind of Impact Can Mold Have in Your Home?

Mold, in some instances, can grow wild without you even knowing in walls or other rarely traversed areas like basements and crawlspaces. Not only can mold make your family ill, it can also weaken the structure of your home. Not to mention the fact that potential buyers won’t come near your property if the home inspector finds mold.

The best thing to do is to maintain an environment where mold cannot grow in the first place. Acrylic bathroom features can help with that.
